rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website.

RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

I especially like the choice of big text and the use of the typeface Karla. Intercom Intercom, the customer communication platform, recently launched a redesigned website chock full of illustrations and beautiful imagery: Every page on the website is worth exploring for the way in which they describe their product, their team and their goals.
