How gordone started their web page design journey

Company name

Mashr.

Overview

Customerforce is launching a content aggregation site titled Mashr. You will be able to create custom websites which source content from sites that you choose. On launch, the only interaction will be between Mashr and the user but we want to explore ways to make Mashr a more social experience.

We used 99 designs to choose a logo and as a result we are using it to design our website. We loved the way designers worked with us to refine their ideas based on our feedback.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Wide. Unisex. Web users in general, but specifically, it must appeal to a mature audience (25 - 40) as well as a young one. It can't exclude anyone.
Our target audience care about form and usability, the site should personify this. Different themes should target a different 'person,' for example, more egocentric users are going to want a large space for a picture of themselves, ome will want a plain and simple design that is solely designed to stream feeds in a readable way. Ecetera, ecetera.

Requirements

Templates should be innovative or thought provoking. Check all of the different Tumblr themes for inspiration. Initially focus on background and then on the elements inside the boxes.
