ethode got their new web page design by running a design contest:
website design for MyPraize
Check out ethode's Web page design contest…
MyPraize is a Christian based Social Network about to turn 7 years old. We are in the process of rewriting the entire project and also doing a re-design. Our main audience is high school, college and young adults (mainly with children). We are revamping our entire business model and trying to target churches and pastors with the new design as well. The site is a Social network so we have most of the basic features you're used too. Messages, Forums, Chat, Profiles, Feeds, Music section, Videos section, Blogs etc.
Our main colors right now are Red (shades already on site) and light subtle grays. We're open to more colors in the palette but my self not being a graphic designer would not be able to give any real helpful suggestions. However, we're really looking to have a SMALLER header (height wise) but still utilize the reds in the website, just less of it. Also, we really just have a font-type logo... If the winner would like to include a logo prototype into their mock up, we can pay for it in a 1-to-1 project and we'll pay to refine it and finish it. We like textures, subtle gradients and nice fonts from Google Font that would fit well with our crowd. Also, we love shadows (very sparingly) and rounded corners, but slightly rounded, not large rounded. Once again very subtle changes not exaggerated.
We are looking in this project to target a brand new design which captures alot of the Social styles of Web 3.0 (man, where did Web 2.0 go soo fast???) Design concepts such as simplicity, subtle gradients, slightly rounded corners, correct usage of complimentary shades of gray and some red which is our main color. For this theme we are look right now for 2 pages, the winner will also do a 1-to-1 project with us to finish more pages in the site such as Homepage, Forums, Groups, Music/Artists Homepage, Forums, etc etc. For this particular project we are are looking for the following page concepts: 1) Profile page 2) Videos Landing Page Let me briefly describe each page. (a) The profile page will have a "familiar" layout but CANNOT copy any of the major social networks. We want something unique, fun and entertaining but we want to include some familiar social concepts that are a part of every social network now-a-days. Items which will immediately be visible on the Profile page include a photo, user feed (wall), basic user info (age, username, likes, dislikes etc),
What to avoid
Bad color combinations... Matching red with other colors can be challenging, and sometimes other colors just make the site look very childish which we are not wanting to mimic. Also, a HUGE PART of this design is understanding social networks and how users use them. We will likely have to finalize a design at the end of this project and then continue making many changes too it so that we can help the final designer get to a finished product for the ENTIRE site.
