How DIGIQ started their web page design journey

Company name

Overview

inStash is a buyer’s guide and shopping magazine for men.

We cover accessories, gadgets, grub, movies, music, rides, clothes, you name it. Aside from short product reviews, we also publish in-depth guides, informative “how-to” posts, and entertaining “top 10″ lists.

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

Typically, a reader of inStash would be male, ages 18-40.

Requirements

We're currently working on a new design and we have a good portion of it already finished (which can be found in the link below). Now we just need the article section on the homepage to be completed. This should include:

- Between 4 and 10 recent articles with excerpts (full article is not shown on homepage).

- Preferably a category section that shows multiple recent articles from each category. (An example website is given below).

- Bonus points if you can manage to fit in an area for a "sponsored review" and/or an adsense unit. (Example websites are given below).

Most importantly, the design should be clean, organized, and fluid.

There are no requirements as to what the articles need to show on the homepage... whatever you feel works best for the design. For example, you might choose to show the author's name, or you might not. Same goes for the "buy" link, post tags, etc.

We use images sized at 620x349 for the article page. We'd prefer that you use the same ratio for most, if not all of the images for the articles on the homepage. However, if you want to change it up here and there, that's fine. In the example website given below, you'll notice that they use square images, rather than rectangular images for the larger featured article in the category section. If you decide to do the same, that would be fine.

You're welcome to change things around to better fit your article design if you'd like. For example, you could do something different with the featured videos or the jquery player that currently exists on the new design.

Example websites

http://www.londonthemes.com/themes/londonlive/ - We really like the article layout on this theme. Note that the article layout changes as you scroll down. One of our favorite parts is the categories, with multiple articles and images shown from each category on the homepage.
