How taylorchooquan started their web page design journey
Trini Jungle Juice.com (TJJ)
TriniJungleJuice.com is a Caribbean flavored web site spanning all the cultures that comprise the Caribbean. The site's roots are buried deep within the sweet land of Calypso, Steelband and a most colourful Carnival in which an entire people express themselves... Trinidad & Tobago. From here, the site's many branches grow throughout the Caribbean archipelago blossoming in Cuban, Puerto Rican Latin Salsa, Merengue and Bachatta influences, as well as, Jamaica's Reggae and Dancehall.
The site is unique. It is the first to pull the whole Caribbean together giving everyone a bird's eye view of the islands yet still feeling the plight of the new and upcoming artist of each community. Our passionate local correspondents allow us to penetrate at that level, something we are proud of, while our US based team use the leading edge technology to project this information globally.

for starters I think we can move to a 960 px width design to give more space for the site. TJJ is still higher than competitors for pageviews per user and time on site. This means that they have plenty users looking at concise information for a very short time. We want to organize the site layout to better present things like music charts, upcoming events, news updates, or any other quick facts. We also want the new design to encourage sharing and collaboration.
Lets get A better News update box. our current News in the middle of homepage is too weak. needs to be flashy-er.
Also better information: in categories (one liners**like teasers): current #1 songs of day, top video of day, big scandal of the day, TJJ fete of the day.
EASY TO DIGEST
Anything that people will log in to view quickly and maybe stay or leave BUT they will come just to see. and know what they are coming for.
Today they come, but not sure if a new gallery will be there, or new music? or news? or video? this is a daily guarantee like your horoscope. The site must also be able to support the current content. although we may have to simplify the content if needed. http://www.trinijunglejuice.com/junglejuice.php
the new design must easily be able integrate the current content eg thumnails so the conversion can be doable.
