Home Page and Search Results Page designs are needed (no coding, just .ai or .psd files)
PBG Lifestyle Magazine covers the society and charity scene of Palm Beach Gardens, FL and writes profiles of businesses and prominent individuals in the area. The writers & photographers spend a lot of their time going to charity balls, art & music festivals, interviewing celebrities that call the Palm Beaches home, attend fashion shows, PGA Tour golf events, spa & restaurant openings and wine tastings.
The old site was created to sell ads in the magazine. This is NOT what we want to do with the new one.
1 Try using these images or others like them http://tinyurl.com/2g86odt or http://tinyurl.com/27ewx56 or http://tinyurl.com/y9gsaa9. That is the lifestyle we are selling here.
- Also while the navigation bar is fine please check out the examples towards the top at http://tinyurl.com/2qq7ll
- I would love the footer to be more like http://tinyurl.com/auccaq or http://tinyurl.com/7x6s7g or even http://tinyurl.com/625emu
I want the site to be classy, sophisticated & stylish, all things that describe our target audience. A fabulous background is a plus but not required!
Our target audience are affluent households in the Palm Beaches area. They are actively involved in the community and attend all of the events described above. We want to influence our readers purchasing power by informing them of excellent events and businesses in the area that they may not be aware of.
We keep the readers coming back to the magazine via our variety stories, out & about photos of the events, and by showcasing hot new products and local businesses.
Site width should be between 974px and 980px (preferrably 974px) wide.
1) Home page design in .ai or .psd format. Wireframe to use as a guide is at http://pbglifestyle.com/wf/Home.html and http://pbglifestyle.com/wfi/Home.html
2) Search Results page design in .ai or .psd format. Wireframe to use as a guide is at http://pbglifestyle.com/wf/Business…sults.html and http://pbglifestyle.com/wfi/Busines…sults.html
Please use our logo (attached) and follow our wire frame at http://www.pbglifestyle.com/wf/ and http://www.pbglifestyle.com/wfi/, but PLEASE BE CREATIVE AND FEEL FREE TO MAKE LAYOUT CHANGES IF NECESSARY. This new layout is closely related to http://www.washingtonian.com if you have any questions about the desired functionality (but not the design b/c http://www.washingtonian.com is very boring, not what we're looking for).
A creative background would be nice but is NOT required. By creative background I mean something like the background at http://www.daygame.com.
I have put the features & functionality that I want on this wire frame but that doesn't mean you can't move them around or change the design. I am looking for your creative juices to flow and to deliver a kick-a$s design - something I am very used to receiving from this awesome community!
I promise to provide detailed feedback on EVERY design I receive, not just give a star rating. I will work with every designer closely to help mold your designs closer to my vision and to do so promptly.
The contest has already been guaranteed! Thank you!!
