this is a layout redesign project for insidepulse.com
inside pulse is a pop culture/entertainment supersite with 'zones' as sections - tv, movies, wrestling, video games, comic books and ufc/boxing (and more).
homepage - http://www.insidepulse.com
zone homepage - http://www.insidepulse.com/zone/tv
we did a contest for a new logo, and this was the winner!
plus we have 2 supplemental icons to use for secondary branding and placement around the layout:
We are looking for a complete revamp of our current design. A total change as this is the first time we are updating the site’s ‘look’ and ‘feel’ in a long time. As a result, we do not want to set parameters on what you would like to creatively do. The only thing is there are a few guidelines that need to be adhered to:
for this project, the two pages we're looking for are:
(1) - homepage/index page
(2) - article/content page
a few guidelines:
every article on insidepulse has these elements available:
3) thumbnail image - 120x120 (can be scaled down)
4) feature image - 500x250 (can be scaled down)
6) comments #
Please do not stick to what is on the current homepage as we want to move away from this format. While we’d like to keep the page rotator that uses the subject, teaser and both images, this isn’t mandatory in the new design. We basically want something that looks completely different using our new logos to indicate a new era at Inside Pulse.
also note that any design submission needs to have (2) pages - homepage and an article page. only 2 submissions have this so far.
ad sizes used:
1) top banner 728x90
2) rectangle ad 300x250
3) tower ad 160x600
the 728 banner needs to be "above the fold" while the other 2 do not need to be anywhere specific.
please be creative! we want to work with you to make the best design possible.
