LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
This website is called OurTailgate.com. This website essentially eliminates all tedious planning before any social function that requires many different people to bring various items. You sign in, create an event, invite the crowd, and watch as each member signs in and writes what he/she will bring.
There are many other aspects but they are not relevant for this project.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a home page illustration for this website - just the illustration. Our page will be neat and clean (inspired by the slightly raised format of www.adsafemedia.net). However, where that website has it's large magnifying picture, we will have a scene of a tailgate.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
We need an image that can symbolize everything from a post game tailgate to a weekly church picnic. We figure most events will be outside, so we are looking for a landscape image.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
As stated above, I like the cleanliness of adsafemedia, but that is more for format - not for this project. As far as illustration, I like the simple drawings, color, and most importantly the feeling of happiness of the twitter homepage illustrations. I picture this particular illustration as almost surreal caricatures of a tailgate scene (i.e. two big puffy clouds, a tall tree, a chef off to the side on the grill with a huge chef hat, a few other people off to the side maybe throwing a football, etc.) A very happy scene.
Also, and very importantly, I picture these characters as more cartoon-like shadows, not detailed people. I also picture them all a burnt red color, though I am open to other color schemes.
I want to keep the colors simple. The logo (which I have attached) is blue and red (though i am trying to darken the red). I have also attached a sketch of my ideas to better give you a picture of what I am looking for. The stick figures are brutal, but you'll get the point. The blurb in the center reads: "Who's Coming? Who's Bringing What? How much? Where? OurTailgate has the Answers. Learn More." We need to account for that space, as it will be there on our homepage.
Try normal sky blue, try strange colors that don't make sense. I just want to evoke a happy, unique scene that any tailgater will feel welcome to continue.
On a side note, I would like to use the people depicted as a theme throughout the website. In other words, on various other pages, I will have the people reappear to frame the page doing other activities.
Thank you so much
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
See image for ideas - dont' get too caught up in exactly what I did. Put your own spin on it. Thanks!!
