Namecoin Website Community Design

Post by phelix » Sat Jun 16, 2012 9:17 am

edit: no bounty currently. you can still participate (see at the bottom)

The Namecoin Marketing and Development Fund calls for action again:

Namecoin Website Design Contest

1 static page
plain html/css (separated into two files)
must be submitted until 2012, june 24
we might have a vote on the designs (forum members before this post are entitled)
designs can be hosted for presentation wherever you like or at my server (send to me)
Logos: http://dot-bit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=486
possible base layout: http://namecoin.info/index_new.html

this information should go on the page: http://dot-bit.org/Namecoin
(this contest is only about the design but note that plenty of info needs to be stuffed on the page after the contest)
the final page will go here: http://namecoin.info/
namecoin has a tradition of stealing/cloning everything from bitcoin, so feel free: http://bitcoin.org/ :mrgreen:

There is a symbolical price of 1BTC for the winner. And of course, fame and glory.

Ok, here are my comments (including my wife's comment too) on what can be improved :p

- blocks in blocks render strange (for "Namecoin projects"). Maybe using another style for sub-blocks would be better.
- blocks have different heights (those which are side by side) so there is no balance (same in my raw template :p)
- header background is too simple (uniform blue)
- right side of header could be a place where we can put some informations
- there is no menu (a left div or horizontal one under the header or at the top inside the header ?)
- the subtitle should be bigger (should we repeat something similar to the first sentence of the block "What is Namecoin" oàr not ?)

I guess we'll need to reorganize blocks positions too, but later.
Aim of the front page is to give minimal informations and redirect to more. But it must be simple, clear in one glance (and what the template show me now, is that it's not the case, so we must still work one the content too).

Good work phelix.

http://bitcoinx.com/namecoin/index_v3.html

with the blocks we are quite flexible

multi page site is much more work, though, maybe we should switch to php...

Using php is not a problem. If we really need html for performances, we could automatically generate cached pages.
