How coreliquid started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The website is a dating platform targeted for encounters which encourages people to get in touch with other people based on emotions you will feel looking through profiles.
Indeed, in opposition to most dating website, client’s profiles are described via icons and without text. It provides a completely different perception of your future friend/lover/sexfriend… or anything else you could think about. It provides a much more wider way to express emotions around sexual related items. When you look at someone’s profile you pick up very quickly an impression of the person your are about to contact… to a point where you have the feeling that you know the person / you know that the person will be suitable for you or not (the icons magnifiy your fantasy).
This way of communicating could bring much more possibilities to communicate softly about whatever subject and notably sexual subject and facilitate communication around sex subjects.
The website would be open to anyone hetero - bi- homo who is 18 years old or more and who is willing to relax and have fun chatting / playing / flirting / talking with other “human beings”. Nevertheless our target is 25 - 45 years old people which are very aware of sexual sensations and consider sex as something quite natural and necessary.
We have a website on http://www.illegitim.ro (test platform) “Warning” this website has a too much sexual connotations. Our goal is to be more subtile regarding this approach in the new design. We want to be perceived as a young / fun / with a kind of “off-the-wall humour” on sexual theme.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
At first glance “bubblegumlove” is a place where you can have fun, where you can spend time laughing and hanging out with other people on subject which are usually difficult to approach in a normal context. It is also a place firstly made/targeted for women. Colours must be warm and natural. Pink should be present but not all over the place. It is important to notice the bubblegum pink directly connected to the chewing gum on the pages but it should be done with parsimony (too much pink on this page for instance… and too bright/flashy http://www.attractiveworld.net/temoignages/).
Bubblegum expresses a style of life of simplicity, convenience and love for life. Love for meeting, discovering and dating quickly people.
I would actually use pictures very similar to those here-attached above. You have this warm effect, the people are sexy and playing… One picture as a background is the best idea… For instance here another website which homepage stands on only one page (you cannot scrool down): http://www.geelee.ch
The whole site and the color must target first women’s taste. That’s why we also focused on icons to express smoothly sexual topics those which are usually badly perceived with crude pictures.
2. First page (infinity page)
3. The background layer of all pages.
For details, please refer to the attached document (in pdf) that describes all.
What to avoid
No pure sexuel connotation - it can be sexy in between the lines but always in a subtle way.
1. The general aspect should be a more up to date and more fluid. Indeed, it currently looks like it has been designed in the 80s. Therefore the homepage should be more modern and the inside should follow this modern trend and definitely targeted for women taste.
2. iOS7 clean buttons style appear to us being appropriate.
3. It is very important that the homepage and the inside of the website be coherent and have a unity.
4. The website should be sexually oriented but with no direct sexual reference.
