The time has come to start creating the design of the site :)
A few weeks ago, when this idea came into my mind, I also came up with a name. It's soo cool, it perfectly suits the essence of the site! I immediately rushed to a domain buying site and typed it in. An guess what... No one was using it! I bought it right away :P

Now to start the design, I'm in the making of the logo with that cool name :) I want to start with the logo, because I think it gives a baseline to the design. Everything on the site has to refer to the logo and the name. The feeling, the colors, the icons etc. Okay, so these are the important points that I think I should follow in the design:

Be interesting
Design is very important, especially when engaging people who are coming to my site for the first time. It has to be simple, yet interesting. My goal is to make it a little bit funny as well! People love having fun and I want them to have fun while they're using my site! This is the main goal! This is the secret ;)
So basically I have to communicate this fun vibe with my design.

Be simple
Every action they take should be simple and easy to execute. The whole site needs to be self explanatory. Also, I have to limit the information flood as much as I can. I have to be careful not to overwhelm new users with to much information. This will be fudging difficult, because the site is really complex... I will have some sleepless nights because of that for sure :)

Be creative
I want my site to stand out from the other similar purpose sites on the internet. My first trump card is fun! :) I think I don't have to explain that... The second is customizable user experince. "Uum and what the heck that means?" - Good question! It means that the User can take actions in more ways than on a regular site. I can't give you any more details now, but I will show you when the time comes :)

Be mobil :)
Another great challange will be to convert this design to a mobile application design.. Yes, there will be a mobil application as well :)

That's all for now... I will come back with ore design soon and mybe with some samples :P
