Ncompass Magazine is a Nashville-centric lifestyle, people, and business magazine which seeks to showcase the life and culture of the Music City.
It will soon be relaunching as "Ncompass Nashville."
We are redesigning the website to portray a more custom feel and to incorporate more functions such as a video section and a searchable categorized advertising platform and a charity of the week.
The current website is http://www.ncompassmagazine.com
We aim to be of service to the Nashville community as a whole through quality content while focusing efforts on showcasing local businesses and benefitting local charities.
25 - 55 years old
Young professionals with disposable income to spend on nightlife, restaurants, entertainment, etc.
Those Nashvillians who are interested in the community, business, news, events, and politics.
Please go to http://www.ncompassmagazine.com to understand how it
works as we are launching the same concept except with a video
component, advertising platform, charity of the week, and social and event pics.
We would like the elements currently on the website plus:
A video section/component: called "Ncompass Nashville TV" - which will feature a thumbnail and description of the current videos featured - when a user clicks, it will lead to a separate video website.
Advertising component: a section of searchable tabs with categories: "all, home, restaurants, auto, entertainment," which show different ads featured in that category when the tab is clicked.
This advertising platform will be called "Yoorville" - the logo is attached. (When a user clicks on the logo or a particular ad it will lead to a separate advertising web site.) PLEASE SEE MY OTHER CONTEST FOR THE YOORVILLE PAGE! http://99designs.com/web-design/con…site-64544
We will also be featuring a Charity of the Week. Our first charity is http://www.marthaobryan.org - logo attached.
We are looking for a vibrant and creative design.
We want it to be eye catching but not feel busy or cluttered, even though there is a lot going on.
WE WILL GIVE FEEDBACK ON EVERY DESIGN!!
