I have a Flickr set open to the contestants of this project (Please note that I have notes on these images, please use them) These images represent the pages that need to be created. Keep in mind that although I am not a designer, I have tried to portray the personality of our team in the design.
Please feel free to comment on the main page of this contest if you have general design direction questions, I would like to keep those conversations public.
Notes to keep in mind:
- We love negative space (think of the main bar as a user who will be opening web pages below it, it needs to NOT be intrusive, yet portray top-class design so that having it up actually "looks good")
- We love risk, so feel free to play around with imagery in the icons
- feel free to see our parked page now to read more about who we are: http://www.microSocial.org
- perhaps this will help as far as images that "pop" to us, as well as use of clean lines, negative space, color, etc. Each have their strengths.
http://www.apple.com/ (This is the best possible example of clean lines I can give you)
