On the home page, I would like it to be something exactly like the Twitter and Facebook layout with the split color scheme and have a login and sign up page in the same area. I would like a nice hockey design in the background and it would be nice to keep the same type of layout with the hockey boards. If you look at twitter, they have images of the users in their system; I would like to use that same type of format, but to display advertisers. I would like the same type color scheme like we have in our logo with the “ice blue”.
I thought of a good branding idea for clients. On the front page at the opposite end of the sign up field boxes, we can have old fashion hockey mask or today's version and put our clients logo on the mask. For example, let's say coke was a sponsor, we would put a coke logo on the mask on the front page and that could change each day, depending on the advertiser of the day or week.
Our motto is “Think, Predict, Kick Save!” and our slogan is “Talk, make and follow other peoples hockey picks.”
Also, I would like to have some type of logo for Twitter, Facebook and linked in and display we are “mobile friendly”.
Once you are logged in, each day you will see a capsule that shows the team logos and you have to slide to the pick you like and the confidence level will show you you’re percentage. I would like to be able to promote the advertisers in a nice display, as this will be the way we make money. I was thinking of keeping the same type of display with the hockey boards and have advertising on the boards, just like you see in a hockey rink in the pros.
I will need to find a way to promote the following links, as this will be the main focus of the people, as this is what they will see and it will show them who the best pickers to follow.
Here’s some of our top navigational features to promote:
Top Scouts Top Scorers Top Pickers Most Followed Hottest Picker
Then you have the players menu;
