Bonus Hawk is an online product used by merchants and affiliates in the online gambling business. It provides a service through which merchants can keep affiliates updated with details of their latest bonuses and affiliates are alerted to terminated or amended bonuses.
Bonus Hawk is a website/service used by Merchants and Affiliates in the online gambling business.
Merchants (e.g. Ladbrokes, Unibet, etc.) register to provide Affiliates with details of the bonus promotions they offer. Affiliates then use this information to advertise these bonus promotions on their site.
We need just the homepage designed for the site as part of this design contest, though the design of further pages will likely follow to the winner so please bear this in mind.
Please bear in mind there is not much content to the homepage as the product is essentially an area accessible to registered members. Instead the homepage is an attractive registration/login interface with limited service information, albeit with a couple liked pages. For full details see the section below.
We require the following:
Split login/registration. There should be a separate login/registration area for Merchants and Affiliates.
General design. The homepage should be designed in such a way to emphasis the different services/benefits we are offering to Merchants and Affiliates. It should have a clean professional Web 2.0 look, with appropriate images, icons, buttons, etc. It needs to be apparent that it is a product related to gambling, but not in an overly brash way. This ties in with the requirement for a web 2.0 feel.
Links. The homepage should contain links to the following pages (Supported Brands, FAQ, About and Contact)
Site Logo. The logo we have previously designed can be found here. It is the top of the two on the .ai file. If, however, you should be minded to create something different to fit in with the web 2.0 style requirement this may count in your favour if so such design can be built around the current one.
Other Logos/Partners. It is intended that there will be space on the homepage to add logos of 3-5 Merchants (e.g. Ladbrokes, Unibet, Extrabet) who are our premium partners. These shall be included in a subtle way, i.e. they should not have too much page presence.
Number of registered Merchants/Affiliates We would like there to be somewhere on the homepage an image/interface showing visitors how many registered Merchants/Affiliates there are.
News section Whilst we don’t envisage the homepage having much content itself, it would be useful to have a small section where news/updates could be placed.
Examples of sites we like the style of and associate with the style of web 2.0 include:
- http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/ - http://www.37signals.com/
- Real images, i.e. photos
- Particular tagline
- Brash gambling graphics/content.
