The concept is loosely based on the premise of a blood-transfusion, obviously instead using the Internet to transmit “love” from donor to recipient. Studies have shown that expressions of love from friends, family and even complete strangers are proven to provide not only emotional support but actual healing benefits to both mind and body.
The ideal design will convey the essence of what a love transfusion is. It is, for the most part, a very visual experience. As stated, the map and arcs will be recreated in Flash using the winning design.
Think of a look/feel that is calm and peaceful. Color scheme of an aquarium (blue and green colors are very soothing), a spa environment or peaceful setting in nature. If you can somehow tie that ambiance in with a "medical monitor" type of look... you'll have an advantage over those who don't.
Each recipient also has the option to post updates on the site to keep everyone informed of their progress/situation.
The most important page of the site is the recipient’s page and that is what this contest is for. If you create layouts for supporting pages (i.e. Home, Resources, Profile, Donors page etc.) it will increase the odds of you winning.
Variations of the logo are attached. Feel free to modify.
We'll be checking in multiple times per day to rate entries and give feedback.
