Design for a Car community
About the competition: This competition is for making a design for a car community based on the software Handshakes and the forum Vbulletin.
You can find a working copy of it here. http://www.handshakesdemo.com/
Instead of using the standard theme we want something custom and we also want to add some functions to the software. The competition is to make 3 of the most important pages. The winner of the contest also needs to make the rest of the design. Remember that you don’t need any coding and a lot of the pages are very similar with small changes. So the job is not as big as it looks. Check out the demo for yourself.
Since we are a car forum we also are going to have a special car profile and not just a social profile. The car profile is one of three templates you need to make in this competition. The others are the social profile and the front page of the community.
Remember if you win this competition you need to design the rest of the pages before you get paid, so if you only want to make the 3 pages then don’t participate.
About the design: We have included 3 wireframes which is a description of where we want the different elements to be. We have also included picture to every wireframe so everyone will use the same pictures and don’t have to look for different pictures to use in the design. We have also included the banners to use. You cannot change the amount of banners or the formats.
Please note that you can use any picture format you want, you don’t need to use the format the pictures are in. If you want square avatars and not rectangular then it is up to you. You don’t have to use the same amount of pictures if you think you have a better idea.
The wireframes are just a brief description so you know what elements that is required. So if you want 6 or 8 blog posts on the front page you can do that. You don’t have to use the exact same sizes of the different elements that are in the wireframes. Neither do you need to use the same font style or size.
We have included our logo. If you don’t want to use that logo you can design you own to fit your design.
The right column should be able to contain a 728 pixel width banner and the left column should be what is left of the total. The total page size is 1024 pixel.
Web 2.0 style Less is more We like big pictures as you can see on the wireframes
Boxy design with all the content in different boxes, not like on this; http://www.handshakesdemo.com/ No cars integrated in the design that can be recognized, we don’t want to be tied to a specific car or model. No domination colors, like making the entire site and background black No people or objects integrated in the design, like wheels etc.
