We already have a wireframe which shows the exact layout and elements we need. We are looking for a visual design that follows the wireframe very closely.
The homepage can be divided in 4 areas:
- search field: nice and long. Has a drop down menu to filter search results
- login and signup buttons
- navigation menu
- lightbox counter (shows number of images in the lightbox)
- quota bar (shows how much the user can still download)
2) Side Frame:
A navigation tree with all categories. The frame can be hidden. Use Arial at 12px without antialiasing for the text in the tree.
3) Content Area:
News slideshow (shows new images)
Feature texture (shows textures we want to highlight)
Freebie of the day (a free download that changes every day)
Category thumbnails (please use the same images, they are provided in the attached archive. Title needs to be always visible)
4) Footer with links and Facebook button
The homepage is fluid width, the page will scale with the browser window (use 1280px as the minimum width).
