The web site shows the stocks with the highest “buzz” at the moment. A high “buzz” means that the stock appears in many web sites at this moment. There will be a list of stocks with their buzz level and some additional info.
The users are expected to check the site often to examine the stocks with the highest “buzz”, or to check the buzz of specific stocks that interests them. The site should be simple and intuitive.

This will be the home page. See attached mockup (Layout_Mockup.jpg) that describes the building blocks of the page. The layout of the blocks on the page is part of the designer's job. More pages will be needed (more work for you).
-The site must be intuitive, clean and simple with focus on the “buzz area”. Use bright background. Width of 900-980 pixels (a must), height of 600 pixels (preferable).
-Design needs to be submitted in layered PSD.
-Name and slogan: SensoBeat – Minute-by-Minute Stock Buzz. BETA. See attached mockup (Name_Mockup.jpg). Simple text ("word art"), no logo.
-A clock showing EDT time (13:57:36 EDT)
-Indication of whether "market open" or "market closed"
-There will be 2 very similar pages, named “Top Buzz” and “My Stocks’ Buzz”. The pages are identical besides the title. The default is “Top Buzz”. Can be designed as tabbed document or as simple 2-button selection. Part of the design is to make it clear that the two options are available.
-A text box: "Show buzz for: ______"
-Registration/Login: Login: 2 text boxes for entering E-mail and Password, with "login", “register” and "Forgot Password?" buttons. See Login_Mockup.jpg
-Header: Show user name and a ”Log out” button, or "Not logged in"
-Footer that contains: "About", "What is Stock Buzz", "Blog" & "Contact Us".
