**NOTES ABOUT OUR STAR RATINGS***: i've received a few comments that my 4 star ratings indicated that I was already happy with a design and ready to select. this is our first 99designs contest so i wasnt really sure what the 1-5 star rating really meant. so in short, please dont let the star rating stop you from submitting your designs!
Visual Style Summary:
generally patriotic (red, white, blue) and americana, but not too "scouty" and certainly not dorky, but more teenage edgy. target users are boys between 11-18 years old. no adult/sex themes
the images below are from our prototype. its ok to replicate that concept, but we encourage alternative menuing + different ideas around swipe, tap, tap-and-hold, double tap navigation and user interaction.
please dont use "facebook blue" for the blue part of our general red/white/blue theme. addl colors can be incorporated to the genreal red/white/blue theme to make the app more appealing,
our mentioning of facebook as an inspirational site was more from a layout /navigation perspective, not from a coloring perspective
finally, the login screen with logo & slogan "scouting everyday", while important, is not our first priority. Finding visually appealing, but functional and intuitive designs for general layout and content presentation + navigation concepts are what we're really looking for.
