The Horn got their new web page design by running a design contest:
GUARANTEED: Redesign for student news publication
Check out The Horn's Web page design contest…
We are an independent student publication for the University of Texas at Austin. The majority of our readers (and staff) are college students between the age of 18-24 years old.
Our readers are young and free our style should reflect. At the same time, we want to be viewed as a credible news source that students can rely upon. Think more college senior than college freshman.
Our homepage displays all our content across 4 main categories: News, Lifestyle, Music and Sports. It also displays the latest from our bloggers/columnists as well as lists of "most popular" and upcoming events . There are 3 ad units: 782x90, 250x250 and 468x60 in size. The inner page displays specific content in various formats, including news articles, photo galleries and blog posts. Legibility of the headline and body text is important. Quick access to social sharing buttons is needed. There are 3 ad units: 782x90, 250x250 and 234x60 in size.
What to avoid
We would like to keep the logo as is. Besides that, we are open to anything and everything.
We are AJAX-capable and like moving parts such as dropdowns. Also, do not feel obligated to use Burnt Orange, the official color of UT.
