We require a design for a new social network site based around sport. Each site user should be able to create a profile, with the possibilty of utilising the following features:
-present own photos
-present own videos
-embed content from other sites (YouTube, FlickR, Frappr etc.)
-search for other users by common interest
-provide links to external sources (favourite links, MySpace/Facebook/[url removed, login to view]
*The user must have the option of customising the colour of their site, most likely using a simple front-end colour selection wheel. Therefore the layout and colour scheme should be developed using CSS.
*All content uploaded by the user should be able to be rated by other users and ranked within the community.
*Each 'feature' should be opt-in. That is, a profile with low content should not appear to have empty spaces where unused features would be.
*The website should be clean and uncluttered, with a focus on high quality rather than prolific content. Expressive use of the colour abound in sport should be well utilised in the site design.
***All respondents/applicants should provide a portfolio or evidence of previous sites they have worked on.***
This is a forward-thinking project and is not simply a generic social networking website.
Please view the attached samples for an idea of the tone of the site.
