How Scompt started their web page design journey

Company name

iOS Frameworks

Overview

I'm a backend web programmer with little design sense. I love an elegant solution to a problem, but when it comes to making the solution look good, I'm hopeless.

I got the opportunity to write an iPhone app for a client and in the process discovered that there wasn't a good place to find a list of the available frameworks that make making an app for an iOS device easier. That's where the idea for this site was born. It's a personal project. Maybe I'll put some ads on the site to try to recoup the design costs when I get it finished.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The target audience for the site is programmers creating applications for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad devices. In general, those people are going to be Apple fan(boy)s, which means some hint of the Apple aesthetic would be nice in the design.

I imagine the site being used both by those new to the iOS platform, as well as being a reference for experienced developers.

Requirements

The site will be hosted at iosframeworks.com. It will be used by developers to find frameworks and existing code to integrate into their applications to make development easier and quicker. The provisional tagline for the site is:

"A curated catalog of iOS frameworks and classes for the pragmatic iOS developer."

This should be on every page of the site somewhere at the top.

"curated" and "pragmatic" should provide hints for the vibe the site should give. It should be classy.

The goal of the site is to list information about the individual frameworks and the applications using these frameworks. Those are the main entities of the site: frameworks and applications.

Each framework has a title, description, tags, and a list of applications that use it. It could have an icon also. Each application has the same information that's available on the iTunes page (for example, http://itunes.apple.com/de/app/good…363448914). The most important pieces of information are title, description and icon.

There's no existing logo or color scheme. I'm fond of green, but that's not a requirement.

Number of pages

3

Page descriptions

1. Homepage
The homepage should provide a simple way for the user to discover frameworks. This should include a couple random frameworks that will link to the framework detail page. Some kind of text like "A couple random frameworks from our vault" could be used to introduce these. A link to the detail page for a couple random applications would be good as well introduced by text such as "Find the frameworks being used by applications such as". A place for some introductory text would be good as well. There should be a search field and links to browse the frameworks and applications. A list of tags would be another good way for the user to dive into the available frameworks. Maybe a tag cloud, maybe not.

2. Listing page
When browsing/searching the frameworks and applications, the results will be shown as some kind of listing/table which links to the detail page. Not all information should be shown on this page. Maybe just the title, icon (if available), and the tags or description.

3. Detail page
All information is shown about the framework/application on this page. It also has a comment form for the user to leave comments (using Disqus). For frameworks, the title and icon of the applications using that framework should be shown. For applications, frameworks used by the application should be shown. Maybe another related framework/application or two should be listed somewhere also.
