Course Director Master's in Electronic Publishing at City University

I am seeking a real world client who is interested in providing a web design problem for my class of Master's students.
The focus of the class is the visual design and layout of web sites. The design process that the students go through involves two stages: digital mockups and final implementation in browser readable form. It is an iterative process, and the students get feedback at each stage, both from me and the client.
The class enrolment is about 18 students which means if you get involved you'll be able to tap into a considerable pool of creative talent to work on your design problem. In previous years students' work has been used by clients who participated in the class, including the Apex Trust, a charity promoting employment opportunities for ex-offenders.
The design problem set could be the design of a new site or the redesign of an existing site. If it is the former you'll need to have the information architecture of the site at an advanced stage before the class begins at the end of January 2010.
I ask that the client commits to the following:
1. Produce a briefing document of 3 pages or more describing the design problem.2. Meet the students at the start of the project to brief them in person and answer their questions (2 hours).3. Be available on email during the duration of the project to answer question that might arise.4. Look through the students' digital mockups, and provide feedback individually and collectively--at a face-to-face meeting lasting about 2 hours.5. At the end of the course look through the final work (which will be provided in browser-readable form), and provide a summative feedback individually and attend asession (lasting about 3 hours) where students present their work and you (and I) provide feedback.
This is a great opportunity to have the creative talent of a group of postgraduate web design students focused for a 10 week period on your web design / layout problem.
If you are interested please contact me by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

oh that sounds exciting. I currently have a project - where we already have a design, where the challenge is to design an ecommerce experience for those with visual, motor or cognitive impairment - quite a difficult task I think you'll agree. Would this be something of interest?
