How Jani Penttinen started their web page design journey

Company name

Jani Penttinen

Overview

I am the CEO and co-founder of Xiha, a multilingual social network. I am originally from Finland, and I have lived in four countries over the past 10 years (USA, China, Finland and now Switzerland) and I travel a lot so I am a real globe trotter.

I am also a passionate photographer, I especially like doing HDR photography. I take photos when I travel and post the best shots online.

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

General web audience, users of the Xiha web community as well as visitors who are looking for information about me or the company.

Requirements

I am looking for a site with a main page and 5 main tabs: main page, blog, Twitter, photos and bio.

I'm asking for 3-page design which should include layouts for the main page, blog page and the photo album.

NOTE: Initially please only do ONLY the main page! I will give you feedback on that.

I will create the Twitter page and the bio page based on the blog page design, so there is no need for a separate layout for them, but the tabs should be included.

The layout should be creative and fun. It can be unconventional, but it needs to be clear and easy to navigate. The content needs to be easy to read (ie. no patterns behind blog text, etc).

Everything needs to be implementable using HTML5 - no Flash requirement.

Important: Feel free to suggest leaving out stuff if you feel I have listed too many items, or adding stuff if you feel something is missing.

Number of pages

3

Page descriptions

The main page

- Short bio with photo
- Excerpt from the latest blog entry with a photo thumbnail
- Optionally some photo thumbnails from the album
- The latest Twitter posts
- Area for comments/messages (latest comments only)
- List of my friends in Xiha (only a few friends, not all)

Blog page

Please include one opened blog entry as well as list of blog entries. I will use these elements to create blog listing and blog entry pages.

I use a lot of photos in the blogs, this should be considered.

Photo album

- Latest photos
- Latest comments
- Excerpt from my latest photo blog
- Brief description about my photography hobby and equipment

Ask me questions if you are not sure! I will provide more guidance as needed.

Existing website

Example websites

I'd just like to go wild and create something original. The layout can and should be completely free form, as long as it can be implemented in HTML5.
