The fund’s name, Courant, comes from Benjamin Franklin (the great
grandfather of all things value investing), who had his first job at
New England Courant (http://goo.gl/zYrbw0).
An old newspapers theme, with subtle reference to Franklin (books,
newspapers, writing, time, value, etc) would be cool.
Font colors should pull from the green of the logo we have.
We really love the Hemingway site, particularly this page:
We love the Gates Notes' book sections. The
little tab with "reviewed" on books where has written comments,
linking through a different page, is exactly what we want to mimic.
Our site would have four main sections ...
That's where we can have a banner and look that references the New
England Courant related theme or something vintage & bookish.
ADMINISTRATIVE SECTION, LETTERS, ETC:
These pages should be very clean, with color and banner repeated from
the landing page, but just well organized links with buttons to
download legal docs and letters, either individually or all.
The Gates approach with tiles for each book, with the little tabs for
books that were reviewed is great:
and then a page for each reviewed book like this ...
http://www.gatesnotes.com/Books/The…ie-Project (but without
repeating the additional books underneath, just the one review)
The photos from the annual dinners is then another key page. Basically
what I like there is the look and feel of Smugmug. Gallery to the
left, with picture and easy navigation arrows to the right. Just like
All of that can be wrapped up in a look representing the New England
Courant or vintage/bookish type look, with the appropriate use of the
logo's green in text/graphics.

I've created a list of images that are similar to what I feel would
suit the manager's tastes and themes:
(Maybe something like this but a little less grungy? Or a collage of
the New England Courant images?)
