Post Show Recaps
What do you do?
This is going to be a WORDPRESS SITE (created with the Thesis framework) which is going to feature live video shows (via Hangouts on Air) and podcasts recapping TV shows such as "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones". We will focus on TV dramas but will also feature reviews on live TV events like The Academy Awards, Saturday Night Live and other TV specials.
Do you have a desired website screen size?
The site will be optimized for 1024768, but will be made fully responsive for mobile device users.
How many pages (maximum of 4) do you need designed?
What is your industry?
Entertainment and Sports
Describe the target audience for your website design
Our target audience is TV fans who are engaged and willing in hearing about and commenting about their favorite TV shows and movies.
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your website design
Fun - Our commentary and recaps on the TV shows will be both smart and funny (but not overly silly)
Interactive - We will rely on our audience for a two-way conversation
Modern - Our audience are very sophisticated content consumers and very engaged in social media.
How is your company different from your competitors?
Our company is very different than our competitors for a number of reasons:
1. Our focus is on being engaged and interactive with our audience
2. Our recaps will be more interesting and more entertaining than our competition
3. Our website will be friendly, intuitive and inviting for our audience to use and communicate with us.
Style and Concept
What website design styles do you like?
Here are some other website's that I like:
RobHasAwebsite.com - This is my current site. We have an active community that is used to commenting on this website. For the article pages, I want to keep a 2 column look with commenting using the Disqus engine at the bottom of the post.
Nerdist.com - I really like the 3 column look that their homepage has, but the article pages have only 2 columns. This is the format I'd like to adopt on my site.
AVclub.com - Once you get past the featured stories at the top (which I don't want to copy), they use a similar 3 column layout for their other stories.
What colors do you want to see in your website design?
Our logo features blue and red. I am open to all shades of greyscale. I think the backplate of the page should be a light color to make the text very legible.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your website design?
I want to try to avoid bright colors that don't match the attached logo (such as pinks, greens, etc.)
What adjectives should best describe your website design?
Modern - This should look like a cool site for 2014
Fun - This a site for TV watchers
Clean - I don't want the site to look overly busy
What content must be included in the website design?
YOU ONLY HAVE TO SUBMIT A CONCEPT FOR THE HOMEPAGE. I WILL GIVE YOU FEEDBACK.
That way if you're not on the right track than you didn't spend time designing 4 pages.
I have attached basic wire frames for the 4 pages I need designed for this project.
You may change things around from the wireframe to suit the design. The only thing that I want to remain the same is a 3-column layout on the home page and a 2-column layout on the article pages.
1. The Homepage: Featured article and other thumbnails can be a featured image or a playable youtube video. (see uploaded file: post-show-mockup_2.png)
2. Article Page: When you click a story from the front page it takes you here. (see uploaded file: post-show-mockup-single-post.png)
3. Category Page: This is the individual home page for each show that we'll cover (see uploaded file: post-show-category.png)
4. What we're covering: This page will list all the shows we will cover on the site. (see uploaded file: post-show-tv-cover.png)
Do you have additional requirements or links you want to share?
I have attached our logo as an uploaded file.
I want each post to have the options to be shared on: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest
I want people to be able to follow me on: Youtube, Facebook Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest
Finished site must be delivered as a layered PSD with each layer labeled correctly for my developer.
