Design a professional and elegant web magazine/community/portal site. The design should give readers the impression that they are visiting a top-rate online publication, like the [url removed, login to view], A couple other sites we really like are [url removed, login to view] and However, we do not want our site to be too “busy” looking or too cramped with stuff. A certain amount of our readers are either new to the internet or using dial up connection so we want something intuitively user-friendly and uncluttered (think more in terms of the simplicity of Google and Digg, and avoid the clusterphobic Yahoo! or Craigslist look).

[url removed, login to view] is an online Entertainment magazine that will offer various types of content to an hip urban. This online Magazine will features various content formats such as: Textual content in the form of articles and stories, Streaming Media, and Images. Users will be able to rate, blog, or send articles to friends. [url removed, login to view] is a free website that will monetize itself from click through advertisements strategically placed on various site areas. Site Stickyness is important.
