We are aiming for a COMPLETELY new design for our entire site. This project is for the HOME PAGE only. Everything else will be extrapolated from that and, if there is need, the project creator will be given additional work to design future parts of the site.
I'd like for potential creators to take a look at popular crowdfunding sites already out there:
Now I'd like for you to take a look at popular gaming related sites:
The ideal website will combine the two worlds, the content from the indiegogo and KickStarter websites but the style from the ign.com and moddb.com websites.
Do NOT create me a video game news site. That's not what we want or need. We need a Crowdfunding site that appeals to gamers.
Something that makes it easy to display content regarding the various projects via "widgets," but also gaming related enough to draw in that specific market. Think bold colors, flash player, etc.
Some things to consider:
1. Have a rotating flash player for "featured" projects is an option you can feel free to work into your design, but it's not necessary.
2. No ad space is required. We do not rely on ads for revenue.
3. Project widgets (i.e. the individual project boxes you see on the home page) need to stay, although they can be completely redesigned based on your own aesthetic.
4. Feel free to COMPLETELY change the color scheme. In fact, we don't want the current color scheme at all.
5. We need a new logo as well, but it doesn't have to be anything fancy.
Feel free to ask questions should you have any via the comments below.
