Bar & Nightclub
The mission of my website - Nitevibe.com is to recommend the best DJ and nightclub culture-based events through our Website and “Buzz” Newsletter for the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. I'm looking for a UX & UI expert to design templates based on responsive website principles with a Mobile-up approach, which can smoothly browsed on various screen sizes from PC monitor to mobile devices. And a designer who knows how to design beyond that generic template look. Nitevibe's user-base is made up of two groups: 1) The DJ-club-culture loving community of the San Francisco Bay Area. 2) Nightlife Industry (promoters, club owners and DJs) These two groups belong to the young and MOST tech-savvy and sophisticated fashion & design-centric demographics. So it will be important to redesign Nitevibe with this fact in mind. That means we will need a website design and newsletter that features the best of the best design layout and graphics without going over the top. The two major parts required for the design will be our website’s homepage AND the web version of our Buzz Newsletter for a total of two templates. Your starting point for design is Nitevibe’s current home page containing many, but not all, of the content elements as displayed here: http://www.nitevibe.com/ You can also see that Nitevibe has been around over 12 years by checking out our archive here: http://www.nitevibe.com/buzz/archive.htm We've built up a loyal and extensive following in San Francisco and Bay Area and will be expanding once the new site is built. You will be required to produce PSD designs that would work for three screens: mobile, tablet and laptop from a mobile app up method. An editable file and an exported file are required (i.e. .psd or .png). Any format is accepted but an editable file that works with PSD & EPS or GIMP on Ubuntu 14.10 is preferred.
The site's design and information architecture needs to be classy, elegant and innovative but most importantly, it needs to be usable on all computer browsers, tablets and mobile devices. For inspiration - If Nitevibe was a house it would be this house: http://www.architecturebeast.com/minimalist-house-ever-designed/ Favorable Fonts in the following order 1) Open Sans, 2) Lato, 3) Muli, 4) Titillium Web The site needs to be clean but with a touch of edge. The content areas need to breathe and not look cluttered. For the color palette - I'm leaning towards dark along with shades of gray and baby blue 33ccff and green 66cc33 accents.
There are two pages that I need designed: Page 1 - For Nitevibe's Home Page - you can see all the content elements outlined on this Moqup: https://moqups.com/samkhedr/xhnifcGE also you can view an old template for the home page that was designed a few years back but was never used - It also illustrates the different content elements that will be mostly present on the home page however most of the content will be abridged - here's the old template: http://www.nitevibe.com/3.0/buzz_v2.html Page 2 - For Nitevibe's Web-Based Newsletter - You can see all the content elements outlined on this Moqup: https://moqups.com/samkhedr/jHjSK4jm Most important - you'll need to take a Mobile-Up approach in the design of these two pages.
What to avoid
I don't want a typical nightlife website that is all black. I like the content to breath with clear large fonts that scales properly. Most of the images on Nitevibe will be promoter's event flyers which will contain graphic text on them... so we can't layover text on the image because it will be confusing and distracting.
THINGS I LIKE: Favorable Fonts in the following order 1) Open Sans, 2) Lato, 3) Muli, 4) Titillium Web I'm looking for a modern, sophisticated and minimal look using solid UI-UX Here's a few sites that display attributes that I like: I like SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com because their content breathes without being too cramped up yet they find a way to pack a lot of features and content on the page. I like Beatport https://www.beatport.com because they organize a lot of content in a clean and simple way without overwhelming the visitor. Resident Advisor http://www.residentadvisor.net/ is one of top players in our industry. And though they have a strong brand their UI leaves a lot to be desired mostly because they are loaded with too much content and don't offer the best UX for various reasons such as the small barely readable fonts.
