I am a college student creating a website that offers information along with reviews of local venues in and around the our main campus. This website will offer students and locals of the town a chance to find information about restaurants, bars, clubs, retail, Greek life, and current events, in and around the university.
What I need: I need ONLY a HOME PAGE web design for NittanyReviews.com. Most importantly, I need the website to be memorable as I want people to come back, so please think outside the box, use creative typography and design.
Our target audience includes anyone affiliated with the University, which includes students, teachers, and guesting visiting the area. The website will also be geared towards locals of the town. The majority of the audience will be between the 18-25 range.
Background: On the Home Page, the different sections will consist of Restaurants, Nightlife, Retail, Greek Life, Events, and Contact us. Besides the home page, every other page will have a list of ads from different venues for that specific category, so visitors will be able to click on a specific venue ad and be taken to a page that I will create for that venue. I DO NOT need these pages, I just need a HOME PAGE design.
What I need: On the Home Page, current events for that day or week will be listed, such as specials at the restaurants or drink specials at bars, or even for different venues in town. Along with specials, there will be featured ads from different venues, placed in and around the home page. The website will also offer space for marketing an ad on the top, bottom and sides of the website, but this can be limited to the effect it has on design as I don't want the website to have a tacky look. Professional, Simple, creative, informative. **Important** I already have a coming soon page up so please check it out, it will contain the logo and slogan to use. The color of the splash page does not have to match the color of the website, although **I would like the website to contain darker colors, not very interested in a white background.
