We REALLY like the feel and usability of "Tinder" which is a dating app on itunes and android. Now we realize that the tinder app is a mobile app and not a desktop website, but we want you to keep in mind the 'feel' of use of the app and the minimalist design while still keeping functionality. Out dating site is not going to be overwhelming with features and options like match.com or eharmony.com . The premise of the site is simple. Its going to connect people who play the same facebook games. It is what will bring two users together and help them connect. We need to design a profile navigation page.
Across the top will be a banner with the name of the site (which we dont have yet) so a place holder can be used. On the left will be a menu with the following buttons/links/info:
- A small picture of the user with age, name, and location
- Search button
- Messages button
In the center of the page will be the main section where users will be able to skin through different user profiles and the information that is going to be around it. A picture of the user being viewed with a 'next' and 'back' or some variation of that wordage. We need 2 buttons, 'skip' and 'like' for the user to user somewhere around the picture. Also there needs to be a list of icons based on the games the user plays to be displayed somewhere near the profile being viewed. Think of the words with friends, candy crush, farmville icons, etc. Now the games that are shared between the user and the profile being viewed need to be highlighted somehow. Finally, there need to be 2 buttons names something like "LIked me" and "Mutual/match" that the user can click to see who has liked him/her and who he/she has a mutual match with.
Depending on the design elements of this page we will then award the rest of the app.
