The purpose of DearAngel.com is to allow users to build a community of memories for their loved ones. The social website for the deceased, DearAngel.com is a healing place for those mourning their loss. The site is not sad though, the healing should invite users to celebrate the life that was shared.
Home page -
The home page is the absolute most important page on the site. It must ensure a sense of privacy and comfort, while allowing us to explain what the purpose of the site is and how it works. The current design is awful in our opinion and it doesn't convey the warmth and privacy we believe our users need.
Like Facebook, the internal pages are where the magic happens. The design will only require a header and footer and perhaps a removable sidebar, but it too needs to be inviting and celebratory of the life users are posting information about.
This site is going to make some designer famous. Good luck.
