Moodle Branding

Hi all!

I have a client with e-learning in Moodle.  They would like to put their stamp on the Moodle site, and incorporate their Brand & Logo.

I've been thinking the best way to acheive this might be to plan it on paper initially, like a wireframe they can colour and piece together.  This would give them a visual, and would ensure they are happy with the design before development = lower cost.

Does anyone have any other ideas?  Our client is in another state, so working closely is not an option.

Many thanks,

Nat :o)

That is usually the preferred process when developing websites.  The designer would mock up some wireframes and present them to the customer. This way the design is set before any coding is done.

Are you building a Moodle theme from scratch?  Most Moodle themes allow you to make cosmetic changes like adding logos and changing colors quite easily.

It also depends on your capabilities as a designer and what version of Moodle you're using as to what options you have. I made the mistake of planning out wire frames (really basic ones in ppt)  for a newer version of Moodle, but at the last minute came to find out that the database wasn't set up in the server so we had to scrap the whole plan.

I can only do basic HTML changes, so I used a free custom theme designed for a company. I just swapped out the logo files and links. It's under construction, but you can see what we have so far here: http://thebodypositive.org/courses/
