- I like drop shadows, gradients, etc, but don't overdo it. The page has to load fast.
- I prefer white/near white backgrounds.
- Good colors: brown, dark red, dark blue, light yellow.
- The design should feel like books.
The design should contain the following elements on every page:
- Footer with links like contact, about, etc.
- Single level top menu;
- Login (normal and facebook-connect);
- Search box
I will be needing the following reusable elements:
- An informational box with tips (like: add your facebook friends, or add gmail contacts, etc)
- Notification boxes for errors and notices;
- Vertical list with one image and two images;
- Tiled list of images with captions;
- A control for filtering/searching within a list
- Form with common elements;
- Context Menu;
I'll need three pages designed.
- The home page;
- The profile page for a user.
- A generic page;
The homepage will need these elements
- Promotional text about the site;
- A feed with recent activity, alike the vertical list with image design;
- 'Join now' button;
- A login button/link;
- The footer
The profile page for a user will need these elements
- Name in large font;
- The pictures of the user's friends and their names;
- Single level menu for the page;
The generic page is just that, it should allow some text to be placed (readable!).
