I need a wordpress homepage that is bold and brings an innovative design to reach news readers. The most important thing is that it can connect with readers and doesn't look like a typical blog, but more like a news magazine.
I need the page to have two columns, a slide show, and incorporate video. The menu bar will include several sub-sections. I also need to give social media a large presence.
I also would like a "breaking news" section that is a small bar that runs under the menu bar.
I also am going to put banner ads on the site.
I would like the top to include the logo - feel free to work with the logo - and incorporate some color. But the news columns should have a white background, unless you think something should be better.
I would like one column to wrap around a slide show. The other needs to be able to be able to hold small snippets of stories, and the third will be the twitter/tumbler feed, and video at the top. I would like links to social media at the top.
Most importantly, it needs to be simple yet bold design. Feel free to be creative.
