This will be worldofpwnage(dot)com version 3.0 - a marketplace for gamers. As mentioned previously, we are planning to create a 99designs.com, scriptlance.com, rentacoder.com, etc type of site for the gaming community where you can post or bid on jobs related to gaming.
The site audience will be gamers from ages 20-45. The site's look &feel should appeal to gamers.
The expected users of this site will be predominately MMORPG players of World of Warcraft, Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, etc.
*However, the design cannot be too biased (graphic wise) to just one gaming group like world of warcraft players. The layout and feel of the site needs to be general and appealing enough towards all gamers.
This project is for 2 uncoded psd files:
1) a clean and professional welcome/registration page layout that includes a new, creative, and appealing Header & Logo.
2) a job listings layout that will list all the jobs. Just look at 99designs.com and scriptlance.com to get an idea of how the list jobs layout should look - has a search navigation, category, user profile box, etc.
A rough sketch of the main welcome layout is included here:
The main buyer and seller blocks need to be appealing enough to get users to clik and register.
A gaming site with a design we like is http://www.mpsgames.com
