Games & Recreational
Created in 2001, Navicache.com is one of the oldest geocaching websites on the Internet and was purchased by Leeward Coast, LLC in early 2012. The website supports close to 40k registered members and has roughly 12k geocaches listed in it’s database throughout the world. Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.
Geocaching.com and Opencaching.com are good examples and guides for what we are trying to achieve. We are partial to "vector" illustrations as opposed to straight photography, but do not want to set that limitation. We only ask that the design work with our current logo. The design should not distract the user from the main objective; finding and loading geocaches into a GPS unit. We will most likely include jquery and fancy sliders so be as creative as you want - we have a developer for the tough stuff!
We have an existing logo that will serve as the basis for the color scheme. We do not want to set too many restrictions, but keep in mind this is an outdoor activity with participants from 6 - 80+ years of age. Navicache.com is similar to both geocaching.com and opencaching.com. The services and basic functionality are the same; we want our own unique identity, but they can be used as resources for inspiration. Included are mockups of a few pages to get an idea of what we are looking for. Note, some of the screenshots are from geocaching.com and opencaching.com and serve as GUIDES only. The mockups contain several pages and we do not expect every page to be designed. We are looking for a consistent “look and feel” that we can then adapt to the other pages as they are developed in the future. The main focus for this design contest is the Homepage, Hide and Seek a Geocache Page(s) and a Storefront Layout. We intend to use .CSS, so please keep images in the design elements to a minimum. Our site must load quickly and should support mobile devices in the future.
What to avoid
Use the aforementioned websites as guides only and create a unique design/presentation for Navicache.com
There is a chance for ongoing work for the winner as we will need additional graphics as we continue to build the site. This is just the base!
