We run a number of online game websites. In this case we are looking to change the look and feel of http://www.wordgames.com to match the viewers a little better.
We have found our current design to be too cluttered, also our viewers play mostly from work/school so the new look must be more corporate in nature and allow for this.
We want a very mainstream, clean site which is user friendly and will not look cluttered. It will be less fun but better for our viewers which want good games without too much design. In short this must look like a site like yahoo/msn ect...
We are going after an older audience, playing games at work and school. They want a clean looking design which is easy to find games with and does not look overly childish.
Please keep the structure similar to http://www.wordgames.com, meaning we still need the same amount of ads in similar placements.
We require a logo/index page and content (game page), no HTML needed.
Please consider this as a re-skin almost, but at the same time you can try and improve the look and feel as long as the general site elements/navigation remains the same. Perhaps changing the feature area size, number of games and their placements ect... The overall page elements must remain. Top level navigation, feature spot area, top games ect...
Keep it clean and simple while trying to be original.
Use the same thumbnail images provided from http://www.wordgames.com. Only use these 2 sizes in your design.
In this contest the simple, unique, classy, work friendly, user friendly design will win.
Best of luck and thanks for trying this out!
