The European Liberal Forum is looking for an agency to develop a new ELF website. The ELF website is one of the most important communications vehicles of the organization. It is the window for all our activities, Secretariat and MO combined, and it needs to provide easy and attractive access to the multitude of activities carried out by the organization.
The agency needs to provide:
Despite a recent revamp, the increase in the organizational portfolio has created an urgent need for restructuring the website’s content and interface in a clear, accessible manner. Recent data shows very high bounce rates (over 70%), which means that users are leaving the website as soon as they arrive. The key pillars of this restructure will be:
Apart from the restructuring work, we require a support and maintenance contract to ensure timely support and minimize additional costs for a number of essential website functions (analytics, reparation of glitches, new plugins etc).
Who we are
The European Liberal Forum (ELF) is the official think tank and political foundation of the European Liberal Party, the ALDE Party.
Together with 47 member organisations we work all over Europe to bring new ideas into the political debate, to provide a platform for discussion and to enable citizens to make their voices heard.

ELF has a very limited set of visual guidelines, resulting in a fragmented and unclear external presence.

The output of this project will be:
For Member organisations
The European Liberal Forum has 46 member organisations, all with their own distinct visual identities and branding. We would like to find flexible branding solutions, which respect the decentralized branding nature of our MOs, but at the same time offer a harmonized look and feel for events, publications and other activities/products (videos, podcasts, infographics) supported by ELF.
These flexible branding solutions can be:

For the participants to our activities (training, seminars…) and stakeholders, we seek to renew our line of goodies. We want people to be enthusiast to show our logo in combination with our branding – through powerful messages.

The design proposed shall make appear our logo, our full name and a message in a minimalistic yet slick design.
We are looking for a company to assist us in the conception and production of a goodies-driven campaign around such message. It must put forward both our logo and full name.
We expect to produce items such as coasters, pens, facemasks, camera blockers, card holders, thermocups, Moleskine-type notepads, phone stands, bike seat covers…
Any suggestions for additional items would be also welcome. We expect from 200-500 copies for each item.
This company will also coordinate production, printing, and finally delivery of goodies to the ELF HQ in Brussels. The company will need to deliver high-quality, sustainable items, and ensure maximum quality of all aspects of concept, production (printing) and delivery.
