Oxygen Radio is a new radio station for the UK playing the latest hits, and we're looking for a fresh, showbizzy, web 2.0 website that will match or exceed our competitors. Should be a fun project, with lots of content to squeeze into the site!
Oxygen Radio plays the latest chart hits – in the UK we're similar to Capital FM, in the US we're similar to Z100 or KISS FM. Please read the full brief in "what i want" as there's some specific items that need to be included. Overall, the site needs to make us look like a big exciting radio station with lots going on!
Check out the following sites for examples of our competitors and to get a feel for the layout (most seem to follow a theme)... http://www.capitalradio.com, http://www.absoluteradio.co.uk, http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1, http://www.brmb.co.uk
Download the logo at http://www.plasticbox.co.uk/99designs/oxygen.zip. The colour scheme of the site should reflect the logo, and be quite bright and vibrant. I quite like the layout and design of http://www.vibereading.com – but it's a bit too urban and dark.
Please design for a 1024x768 resolution.
Our slogan is “fresh hits for the uk”. The main logo uses the Kravitz and NewZurica fonts (which you can easily download).
The menu must be horizontal and consist the following items:
One of the most prominent items on the top header must be a “listen live” button that a user clicks on to open the radio player. The top header should also include the an area that says “on air now” with the presenter name – use Matt Harris for the mock up. There also needs to be a presenter photo – I've included one in the zip file with the logos – it's a transparent png, so gives you some flexibility with what you want to do with it and where to place it. If you need to stretch it bigger, that's fine, I appreciate it's quite small. Finally, the top header should also include a standard sized banner ad (468x60)
There also needs to be on the page a “now playing” line, with the song currently playing on. For this, use “September – Cry For You”. Please note that song titles can get quite long. Somewhere else on the page, but not in the header, needs to be a box that says “We've just played...” with 5 songs and titles below. Use: Lilly Allen - The Fear, Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire, Sugababes – Girls, Kelly Clarkson – My Life Would Suck Without You.
On the capital website – http://www.capitalradio.com – you'll see a box that changes content just below the main nav bar. I need a similar one, with dimensions roughly at 600 x 220 I don't mind if those dimensions change.
There also needs to be a left hand menu – put in the follow items for the mock up: Schedule, Presenters, Relax Nation, Club Oxygen, Get In Contact, Audio Downloads.
Also on the home page needs to be 2 YouTube videos. See http://www.oxygenradio.co.uk for an example of two videos. Feel free to screen grab them.
Finally, a few boxes that contain a small bit of content and links to other pages with a small picture – feel free to use dummy text/images – it's the placement I want to see. Feel free to add in as many as required to fit the page.
If you have any further questions, or if anything doesn't make sense, please drop me a message – I'd be happy to clarify for you.
Anything too flat
Anything that's messy – grid layouts and a good eye for layouts is important here
