We are DIYgamer.com, a unique gaming blog that covers everything you'd ever want to know about the indie and independent developed games. These are usually smaller games, like Super Meat Boy, Braid, and Joe Danger to name some of the larger indie games.
We are currently the third largest indie games site on the internet, and believe that if we had a really good design, we'd easily be able to make it to the top.
Gamers. This means we need big pictures, exaggerated icons, and stuff that really pops out at our audience. This is where our current site fails. We have a clean website, but it's altogether disjointed and unexciting.
Please take a look at the following sites to get a good idea of our target market:
These are all sites that are designed with the typical "gamer" in mind.
We really need something that "pops" to our audience.
Please take a look at our current website: http://www.diygamer.com and get a good feel for it. Currently we like the colors (blue/light green) and we like our logo. Also please keep the traditional blog format.
We need a better way to showcase premiere content, and we also need a place for our specific categories to be readily available and noticeable.
Currently we have four ad spots. In our redesign we only want 2. One 728x90 header, and a 300x250 box, probably located in the sidebar.
We also need our login area to be in a readily available spot that's noticeable.
Overall, something like this: http://www.templatemonster.com/webs…h=0&tab=32
That template is great. So feel free to use that as a basis for what I am looking for.
Attached you'll find our logo as well as the original design PSD. Feel free to tweak the logo if it serves your purpose.
Finally, this is a Wordpress Design. The reason it's here is because I don't need it coded, I just need a clean design. What I do need, however, is all the Wordpress extra designs like:
1. Quoted box
2. Bullet/numbered points
3. Box around uploaded pictures for captions.
These are pretty simple things, but I still need them to keep the consistency of the website.
Please give me the full design PSD, ready for web.
