How DigiDude started their web page design journey

Overview

Brief Overview

We are creating a new site for professionals in the digital media industry that provides digital media job advertisements, news and compelling feature content. It aims to be the premier provider of digital media jobs in the Australian market place.

A key objective of this website is to present clients’ job adverts to a targeted, highly qualified and active audience and provide optimum application conversion for advertisers.

We need to present a new, inspiring, edgy, smart way for companies and new staff to connect. We want a sense of community through the feature articles so users want to come back regularly.

The current key players in this market do so in a clinical, impersonal manner. We want to offer a new alternative. With personality!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Digital Café
http://www.digitalcafe.com.au

Target Audience

1. Men and women, ages 22-45, earning over $80K

2. About 60% male 40% female

3. Digital media professionals – e.g. web designers, web producers, tech developers, editorial staff, executives, marketing, mobile, journalists, digital advertising agency staff

4. Employers of digital media staff, IT and mobile

5. Advertisers

Requirements

Look and feel:

This is one important aspect that can really set us apart from our competitors who either have very ‘clinical’ or very cluttered looks.

We like the idea of:-

- ‘modern industrial café’ / wine bar e.g. http://www.timeoutsydney.com.au/ven…-vini.aspx

- or modern art gallery meets café e.g. http://www.2danksstreet.com.au/

- and finding a clever, but not clichéd way of playing on the name “Digital Café” too.

Think exposed bricks, steel, glass, timber beams, clever graffiti, with a polished urban edge. It has to feel like your favourite inner city coffee shop / wine bar with a New York or London Soho vibe. Think “industry buzz”, “meeting place for digital media and mobile professionals”

Some key concepts we also like are the graffiti art of designers like

Ge Feng at http://www.flickr.com/photos/972168…773686524/

Think a bit grungy, and cool and NOT too corporate but very functional as its a NEWS and jobs site so can't be TOOO busy

Keep in mind we want personality, but design functionality is KEY. The site needs to be seamless in operation across a range of platforms.
