Here is my final design for the Bat Conservation website. By tracing over the small logo at the bottom of the page and creating a vector image out of it, I was able to make a more attractive heading with a more remarkable logo. The bold colors and pictures hit the main points of the site and the navigation bar makes it easy for the rest to be found. The sidebar is composed of most of the same elements, but is a different color and a little less cluttered.
I really liked the sidebar at the time, but I think it has some room for improvement. It still looks updated compared to the old one, and would fit well within the $5,000 budget.
