Design Guidelines and Components
Try to keep the frontpage on a single screen and not too text heavy. Use soft and appealing design.
Mingoville logo can be found here http://www.de.mingoville.com/conten…6/lang,en/.
Feel free to modify the elements of it.
There are six (6)
main sections as follows:
a. Home b. Parents c. Schools d. FAQ e. Demo f. About us
There is also a login box, and the 32 language bar that need to be globally accessible. You can view the current layout of the globally accessible links, but feel free to play with the design.
We intend to have 'containers' or 'modules' that can be placed in rows or around the page that contain different dynamically updated information like: Latest Logins, Todays HighScore, WorldMap of Users, Meet the Mingoville citizens (http://www.de.mingoville.com/conten…8/lang,en/), User Testimonials, and various rotating swf advertising/sponsorship banners.
For example, we’ve built a short
rotating demo out of the Mingoville content in Flash (see here http://www.de.mingoville.com/banner…odemo.swf).
We need to have this demo on our
frontpage. Of course the size of it should be much smaller than that is now (our
suggestion: 200x150px). For another example of such short, rotating demo see
here http://www.clubpenguin.com (on
the right side).
