Website Redesign Request for Proposal

Website Redesign Request for Proposal


Live On The Vine - The Long Island Winterfest - (LITV) is a 6 week mid winter music festival that takes place in Long Island’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, hotels, and other venues on the eastend of Suffolk County, New York. The festival currently maintains a web site at The organizers of LITV are soliciting proposals from qualified web designers and developers to redesign the site, incorporating new features, an updated interface, and the latest web technologies.

Existing Site - What’s Good and What’s Not

The existing LITV website was designed several years ago and provides solid foundation upon which a new site can be developed. The festival organizers are generally satisfied with the current organization of content on the site. The LITV logo should be retained in the new design with same or similar color scheme. Copy on the site is generally acceptable, with modification to me made by the festival staff as required during the re-design process. The features that are currently missing and/or lacking on the site include photo and video presentation, social media integration, venue map and transportation information, ticket sale integration and presentation of featured performer information. 

Core Scope 

Your proposal for the re-design of the LITV website should include the following:

1. Use of the WordPress CMS/publishing system. The festival organizers have chosen WordPress as the platform for the new site based on its widespread use and popularity. Please describe and demonstrate your WordPress design and development experience, including deployment without relying on a web control panel. The festival organizers place a high value on working with designers and developers that have a good understanding of how the platform functions “under the hood” rather than simply pointing and clicking to achieve goals. Your proposal should include use of the current (non-beta) WordPress release.

2. Integration of the current LITV logo and the current color scheme of the existing site. Your design proposal should incorporate the current festival logo and should be based on the color scheme of the current site or a or slightly varied color scheme.

Site Schedule

The Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce (Chesterfield Chamber), a 501(c)6 business membership association representing nearly 550 unique businesses in the Richmond Region, is requesting proposals for website design, ongoing website maintenance and content management, and marketing services. 


The Chesterfield Chamber is seeking proposals for website design that matches the evolutionary growth of the Chamber to primarily:

 Engage volunteers and host committee discussion forums in a secure environment with username and password management. 
 Highlight the Chesterfield County business community and relevant topics/issues.

 Communicate and smoothly interact with membership database system. 
 Allow Chamber Members to update company information. 
 Content Management System that allows Chamber staff the ability to update web pages. 
 Incorporate webinars and social media applications.

Lambda Legal is a national nonprofit organization that works through impact litigation, public education and policy work to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV. Founded in 1973, Lambda Legal maintains its National Headquarters in New York City and has regional offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas.
Lambda Legal litigates approximately 100 impact cases per year, prepares legal documents and fact sheets, provides Know Your Rights information to LGBT people, people with HIV and allies and organizes educational events around the country. Our brand identity is smart, strategic and somewhat wonky. Our website, therefore, is content rich – and our challenge is to make it accessible, inviting and effective.
The primary goals of Lambda Legal’s website are to:
  • Quickly inform visitors about who we are and what we do (establish and strengthen our brand identity);
  • Provide easy and inviting pathways to support our work;
  • Provide easy access to information about how to protect the rights of LGBT people and people with HIV, and about our current and landmark cases;
  • Inspire action and ongoing engagement with our organization.
We seek a firm to provide on-going development and consulting services for Lambda Legal’s Drupal-based website. We require a firm that can work with our team to assess our needs, develop plans to improve the look and performance of our site, design and implement plans, and provide ongoing technical support and assistance to maintain the performance of the site at all times.
Specifically, we seek a firm that has:
  • Extensive engineering and development capacity in Drupal;
  • Experience designing and maintaining websites for nonprofit advocacy organizations;
  • Capacity to provide rapid response, 24/7, for bugs and emergency technical problems;
  • Exceptional creativity and design experience to build and maintain a site that is accessible, engaging and informative to accomplish the goals above;
  • Excellent project management capacity and experience with team projects with nonprofits.
Successful bidders will be:
  • Responsive and well-staffed
  • Established
  • Nimble and cost-efficient
  • Capable of planning and executing with excellence
Request for Proposal and Bid:
Please submit by July 11 a 3-5 page proposal that describes the bidders’ capacity and experience, referring specifically to the five project needs listed above. We will schedule meetings between finalists and key stakeholders in late August and early September. We expect this to be an ongoing, annual contract with specific new projects added throughout the year. Please include a budget for:
  • ongoing technical support and maintenance;
  • a sample project budget (for example, to design and build a mini-site such as the Love Unites Us section on our site; or a new, interactive website section for people to volunteer and sign petitions)
Bidders are encouraged to add or provide links to work samples.
