This contest is to design the look and feel for our new Native American site - NativeMusicSource.com.
Please take a look at my other sites to get a feel for the types of designs I prefer:
The site is going to feature all types of Native American music.
Here is a breakdown of the organization of the site:
-This section will include pages with photo, description, links to albums, links to store, etc
-This will have photo of album art, list of tracks, links to store, links to review item, etc
-This section will allow the users to browse categories of music such as Hip Hop, Pow Wow, Gospel, Traditional, Flute, etc. The links here will be back to the artist profiles.
-eCommerce application for selling cd's
-Calendar displaying concert dates
-Place for people to post reviews on albums
-We will have a weekly podcast featuring music from the site
-The site will also feature an online radio station.
The site will be built using several software packages. I'll be looking for someone to code this template for these applications later.
Most of the site will be developed with WordPress including the artist profiles, music, album pages. The podcast will use WordPress with the PodPress plugin.
The Review section will be built using ReviewPost.
The online store will use xCart.
The Radio will use SamBroadcaster. You can see an example site at http://radio.powwows.com
And the calendar will be an RSS feed from our site NativeGatherings.com for the concert category.
I will also need a place for a newsletter subscription and search box. I'll also need a link for an About Us page and Contact Us page.
The design needs to have places for Google Adsense ads as well as a place to display in house ads such as 728 x 90, 160 x 600, and 250 x 250.
For this contest I need one main template with a few variations. The main template will be used for the pages inside WordPress. Then I need a variation of that for the xCart online store, radio and reviews.
For the radio, like I said, I use SamBroadcaster. Please take a look at our Pow Wow Radio. I'll need designs for the popup windows as well.
As for how I want it to look, I'm pretty open.
It needs to have a Native American look with bright and vibrant colors and use a Web 2.0 style.
Thanks for your time and submissions!
