* This contest is only for the graphic design of the WP Theme.
* We will have someone code the site after I accept a design.
We had an idea originally for a theme and then it changed because of this header design which we have attached.
The website in development is blueskyandcloudydays.com
The visitor (any age from about 18 and up, both male and female) needs to feel very clear when visiting this design.
They are coming from perhaps many different perspectives too many to name but to give an example of a few: confusion, pain, suffering, grief, anxiety, depression, hopelessness.
The header image visually describes the contrast which is what we are about, life can and will be a mixture of blue skys and cloudy days.
We are discussing both blue sky (uplifting, happy, inspirational etc) and cloudy days (sad, depressive, painful etc) content.
The market is: self-help, personal growth, motivational so it needs to have the initial WOW factor when you first glimpse its design.
** The design is to be based around this header.
Your imagination, your experience, your instincts will be required to manifest a truly inspirational site design.
The look and feel needs to not be too distracting and clearly draw people to the content.
Navigation must be simple and clear and functional when blending in with the rest of the design.
Layout: Undecided - will be inspired and know more when I see designs developing from experienced artists as to which direction flows best for us.
Things to consider:
** Fill in with your own sample content for now just for show **
Title & Content Articles which will have a preview and a more button to show the rest of the article or a sign in box for registered users.
Menu Bar (home, about, contact etc)
Hi Quality Buttons (facebook, twitter, youtube, rss etc)
Search Bar etc (content search ability)
Anything else that someone might consider relevant or nothing at all.
