This design is for a landing page that captures an email address.
I've attached a drawing with a very rough layout of the landing page,
'Attachment 1.' This is mainly just to show the positioning of the different elements on the page, not the exact look/feel of everything.
First off, for the background of the page we'd like to have a map of the globe on a dark background, with images of people in various countries, something to show that people are connected. If possible we'd like to duplicate the image in 'Attachment 2' as much as possible.
Then on top of this dark background we'd like to have an orange box which will contain the rest of the elements of the page. We'd like this orange box to look as much like 'Attachment 3' as possible.
In the upper left hand corner of the orange box will be a big headline with this text:
"Get The New Viral App That PAYS YOU
Every Time Your Social Media Friends
PLAY A Game, LISTEN To A Song, UPLOAD
Pictures, Or BUY Something Online"
We're thinking the words would be wrapped like they are above, but we may have to see how it all fits once a rough draft is done. There would not be any quotation marks in the actual headline.
The headline would be formatted similar to the headline in 'Attachment 4' where the 1st (top) line of the headline is very large text and then the lines below it are slightly smaller text. We'd like to use a font like the one in 'Attachment 4' as well.
The text in the first line of the headline would be black, except for the words 'PAYS YOU' which would be in green, like the shade of green used in the buttons on this site: http://rippln.com/
The text in the other 3 lines of the headline would be black as well, but again, a little smaller than the 1st line.
The words 'New Viral App' would be underlined with a "green marker" just like the "red marker" underline in 'Attachment 4'
While the text in lines 2-4 would be smaller than line 1, the words 'PLAY,' 'LISTEN,' 'UPLOAD,' and 'BUY' would be a little bit larger than the rest (but still smaller than line 1) and in bold for emphasis.
Underneath the headline would be a graphic of an iphone. See 'Attachment 5' for this graphic. You might want to shrink the size a little bit.
To the right of the iphone (at the bottom) would be a graphic of an App.
See 'Attachment 6' for this graphic. You'll want to shrink this one a little
bit as well.
Underneath the iphone would be this text (no quotation marks on the actual design):
'See Why It's The Most Addictive, Fastest Growing Real-Life Game In History!'
You can use a little creativity with this text/colors/etc to make it match
with the rest of the design and yet stand out.
To the right of the iphone and the app icon would be some kind of noticeable arrow or some kind of design that guides the viewers eyes to the right, towards the opt in box.
This is open to creativity as well.
To the right of the iphone/app icon/arrow would be a huge form field for people to enter their email address. The form field should be really big, like on this page (maybe even a little bigger)
Inside the form field would be text that says 'Enter Email' that disappears as soon as they click inside the form field.
Below the form field would be a button about as big as the form field that says 'Get The Free App!' No quotation marks would be in the actual button.
This button would be green just like the green text in the headline.
The style of this button and the form field is open to you. You can get some ideas of style by checking out this website and watching this video (this is the product this design is meant to sell and that we're modeling it after:
One thing we would like for sure is for the button to be slightly 'interactive' so that it changes shade of color slightly or something like that when you move the mouse over it, just so that it does something to catch people's attention.
Above the form field and to the right of the headline would be a bunch of bullet points and app icons.
We'd like to have all of these inside some sort of box to separate them
from the rest of the design. The design/colors of this box is open to
creativity, as well as the color of the bullet text, in order to make them
Initially we were thinking to have these bullets inside a big app icon
kind of like the one in the upper left hand corner of this site, but we're
not sure how that would look: http://www.playbookevent.com/
Here is the text for inside this box (the ---- are just to designate
Get Paid Every Time Your Friends...
-Play a game (Farmville, Angry Birds)
-Listen to music (iTunes, Pandora)
-Buy a product or send a gift (Amazon,
-Share pictures (Instagram)
-Upload videos (Youtube)
-Check in at a restaurant, bar, or event
If you need to change the wrapping somewhat to make it all fit with the
design feel free.
Rather than actual bullet points we'd like to use maybe some arrows or checkmarks.
And next to each bullet where it lists a couple different companies or
products, we'd like to substitute either the logo of that company or
their App icon, whichever works better. Their app icon is preferred.
So for example, instead of the words 'Foursquare' and 'Yelp' at the end
of the last bullet, just substitute the app icons for those two products.
One last note:
Please make sure that the 'Start Here' button at the bottom is above the fold line of 550px and that the page is no wider than 960px.
That's about it. Thanks in advance for all the submissions!
