How Manaview started their web page design journey

Summary

Need a creative design for a very innovative website. This will be a challenge!

Company name

Manaview

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Who we are

This is an innovative site that will be needed by every player in the game of World of Warcraft. We already own 2 websites related to WoW that reaches millions of people every month and is within the top 1,000 most visited sites on the net. We are confident that this site will be no different and we have very high standards for a quality design.

Heres How It Works

This site will find the fastest levelers inside the game and will keep track of everything they did while leveling their characters, including what Quests they picked up, the exact routes they walked along, the order they killed monsters, the order they turned quests back in, and much more to give our visitors a step-by-step walk-through which they can follow to increase their leveling speed.

This may be confusing if you never played the game but It doesn't matter because I've created psd's and jpgs that will tell you exactly what will be putting on the site.

Wants

What is important, though, is a small understanding of the game. Please watch these 2 Cinematic Trailers of WoW. (Don't worry they aren't long)

Watch the "World of Warcraft Cinematic Trailer" (6th from bottom) and
the " The Burning Crusade Cinematic Intro" (About halfway down) http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/down…ovies.html

We want a dark colored site to appeal to gamers. This game is very beautiful with mystical powers, dark evil dungeons, and enchanted forests. But please do not misunderstand (and this happens all the time) the game has beautiful graphics but that doesn't mean we want the site covered in all kinds of colors and textures and graphics, remember to balance it! It is possible for the your design to be simple and boring and we still end up choosing you. User experience comes first but if you can add subtle artistic beauty into it, that is a huge plus.

Site PSDs and JPGs.

Quest Log: http://manaview.com/questlog.jpg (Image of the questlog ingame. At the bottom right of the site is a quest log, this is something also found inside the game and we want to use a similar format and colors to whats found ingame. Green Text for easy quests, Yellow for normal, Red for hard).

Popular WoW Sites Which We Like:

http://www.wowhead.com - Clean with dark colors that appeal to gamers.
http://www.wegame.com/ - YouTube style video site for gaming. Uses dark colors as well and has a very clean look.
http://www.wowdb.com/ - Idea ripped from wowhead. They made a prettier version of it.
http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/
- Give you a feel for the game you're dealing with. Very beautiful
graphics. Dark colors. Mystical powers. Has beautiful enchant forests
and dark evil dungeons.

http://wow.curse.com/ - Very popular site with a great clean design. They use their logo throughout the site to give it style and also helps with branding.

http://www.worldofraids.com/ - This site was purchased by Curse. You can see some similarities in the design.

Details
-
The site must have 2 advertisement slots TOGETHER. There needs to be a 728x90 ad on top of a 300x250. Ex. http://wow.allakhazam.com/-
The PSD was made only to SHOW you what will be on the site. The layout and design can and should be changed.-
The logo on the PSD does NOT need to be used but you can if you want.

Don't want

- Do NOT make it cartoony if you think only kids play video games.
It is a very mature game and most gamers are 18-40 years old.
- In the "View Fastest Routes" box there should be 3 tabs which I forgot
to add in the PSD. All, Alliance, and Horde. Clicking on the tab will
show
the 5 fastest routes for Alliance and Horde(All Tab), Just
Alliance(Alliance Tab), and Just
Horde(Horde Tab), Respectively. There should also be a "Show More" link
at the bottom
in case they don't like any of those 5 routes.
- We decided to take out the Leveling Range Search Box. Instead we will just place a "Find New Route" button somewhere and that will take them to a separate search page. If you're chosen as the winner we will pay you extra to design this page as well.
