We're looking for the WOW effect, something better than what we currently have, our current design looks bogus, we need something that will stand out and get attention. It has to be clean and professional as well such that when a user will look at the design he/she should really love what they see, it should stand out. I’ve attached our logo, etc. We prefer the colour to be green but you’ll be able to come up with red and blue color if eventually selected as the winner.
We are looking for a design of the Homepage, Single Post Pages and Archive pages, In addition, we also want a simple homepage design we can use to display the site as apps
Home page should have a widgetised sidebar on the right, we’ll like to display content in thumbnails that is arranged in columns and rows just like we currently have on buzznigeria.com, feel free to come up with your own ideas
As a standard, we want the single posts to have two widgetized sidebars, one on the left and another on the right side so we can show more of our content, it’s expected that we switch to one sidebar when using background takeover ad
There should be a very good looking email subscription box on the side bar as well as latest posts from the same category, editors picks, latest posts, popular posts
Footer area should be widgetised (3 or 4 columns)
Pls note that the site is responsive, we’ll like to see how it’ll look like on mobile and tab
