Description

10 years ago
We need a CTA for the upcoming Firefox parties -- either one to replace the "Join" block or go above the "Featured Projects" block.

Alex or Neil:  Can you get Jay the files for the CTA Join block and the Featured Projects block?

Thanks!

I emailed the font pack for the CTA text.  The rest should stay the same, or is just a text change.

Here are the Featured Projects background images,

How will this be displayed?  Are we completely replacing the "Join" and "Start" CTAs?  Or, choosing between them randomly?  other?

Isn't this type of info supposed to fit IN the Featured Projects block?

We're going to replace the entire square block for the "Join" or "Spread" with a new "Party" block with a more festive design.

The Party info will fit into the current layout of the Featured Project block, but we wanted to create a new copy of that block with a more festive design as well...which will just have 1 topic: "Firefox 3.5 Launch Parties!" or something like that.

Basically, I was going to create 2 options and see which one works better for the SFX front page.   In order to do that, I need the images so I can make sure the look and feel fits the current SFX design.  I'll just be adding a few custom images to the block and we'll have updated text for "Party" related messaging.

Thanks Alex.  Could you also point me to the yellow "Spread" images?  I think we will probably go with replacing the "Spread" block, since it makes a bit more sense.  After some thought, I think replacing the "Start" would be bad for those that are still arriving for the first time and need to learn more.

Replacing "Spread" with "Party" for a short period will work better.

What kind of timing do we have for this? I'm pretty swamped right now and won't really have much extra time until mid-to-end of next week at the earliest.
Jay, Mary - could you be a little clearer about what you want by when?

Jay just wanted the artwork for the current CTAs & the "featured project" block to create a new Firefox party CTA.  I think we're set here with the files Alex put up.  Let me know if I am wrong!

Morgamic:  We just want to replace the images and text for the "Spread" block on the front page of SFX to promote Firefox 3.5 parties.  I'll have the images early next week, so you guys can take a look and let me know if it's doable.
Yeah, should be OK - not clear what Neil has to do, then.  :)  Alex?

If the images are the same dimensions, Neil shouldn't need to do anything

.png to replace "Spread" block on SFX homepage

This file is a bit bigger than the original, so will also attach the .psd in case webdev wants to make it smaller.

Also, the image height is a bit more than the original, but only on top, so it should look fine as long as it is placed in the same location (shouldn't block any text above it).

.psd file in case webdev needs to make edits

I didn't add any text, since I figured that is done with markup.

Alex:  Hopefully this new image works.  Let's add the following text in the same style as the other boxes:

Party!

Plan an event for the release of Firefox 3.5!  Bring people together for a party, install fest, or community meetup.

-------

We can review the copy and update as needed, but let's try that to see if it fits.

Thanks!

screenshot of image dropped in

Hey,

I took the background image from comment #12 and dropped it in using Firebug.  Screenshot attached

As you can see, it's a little off.  The text lays on top of the background (cutting it off) and the added height on top creates a weird yellow bar on the top.

Can you modify the image so that it,

1) doesn't extend the height past the top border

2) doesn't encroach on the text below

new image with same dimensions as original

Alex:  Try this one.  I think it will be ok for the "Spread" or "Party!" text image to sit on top of the balloon ribbons... as long as it is a clean overlay. Let's see what it looks like and if we need to tweak this a bit more, I can tomorrow.

Will there be a separate site to find a party to go to or will this block also be used for that? Just wondering if we should tweak the text to mention finding a party or if that's left out on purpose.

Lucy "I may be wrong" but I think its going to link to http://www.spreadfirefox.com/lets-party "not 100% done"

Mary was thinking on keeping them on sfx site 
and not the old party site http://mozillaparty.com/en-US/

Comment 27

Lucy:  The text in the block that I proposed is up for modification.  Good point about "finding" parties.  We can change it to say something like:

Plan an event or find a party to attend to celebrate the release of Firefox 3.5!

Alex:  Can we get the page implemented with the final image and the text above to see what it looks like?  If it fits, great!  If not, we can modify it.

We will have more info on the party page on SFX, so we don't need to put all the details in the CTA on the front page.

This is great!  Probably not until next week.  We need to get the party page up & determine whether the calendar can handle all these events (I am a bit behind on the drupal discussion).

Thanks for doing this Jay!

Quick thing here -- there is no punctuation at the end of the sentence on this CTA.  Can we get a "!" added?  Then we're good to go.  Thanks!
