We have a customer, a communications company, that owns three radio stations. Althought the stations are different formats (top 40, country and classic hits), the sites basically look the same now, and each will look the same when the makeover is done, other than colors and header images.
The customer is embarking on a new banner ad campaign as a different source of revenue. The sites will all share one layout that you will design, using their own graphics and logos to create three seperate sites.
There are currently three sites: http://www.wcty.com/, http://www.wnlc.com/, and http://www.kool101fm.com/. As you can see, the layouts are identical. We are looking for an updated look that the three sites can share. One site that they like is a sister station that we recently did at http://www.hitmusici983.com/.
IMPORTANT - The banner sizes used on the Hit Music site are the same as what will be used on the new sites, with the exception of one (there will not be a 234x60 banner).
The layouts should follow the color schemes that are provided in the logos. They should be upbeat, hip, yet easy to accept dynamic data to populate the sites.
The site should be approx 950 px wide.
The site will contain the following components:
On-Air Now - depicting the current DJ (they like how this is used in the header area of the hit music site)
A weather component
A Join the Club link
1 728x90 banner (top)
4-6 125x125 banners (left or right side)
2 234x60 banners (bottom)
You'll note that there is currently a rotating flash piece in the existing sites. We want resize that to be not as wide as it currently is (maybe 300 x wide, and taller (possibly 400px (or more if needed).
I am including the logos for the three sites. Before you create three versions, come in with one to give us an idea of layout. When the customer chooses a couple, we will ask that you provide the other two sites.
We are looking for the home page and one interior page. We will need the PSD files. If you can code the layout with html and PROPER CSS, there will be a $150 bonus.
- hip and trendy
- nice use of sections on the home page
- flash placeholder
- Complete flash site
- overly busy
- not a typical radio station site
