Model Mayhem - Profile Page Design
More than a week ago I presented my idea for a revised Model Mayhem site. I said then that I wasn't happy with it, but I wanted to present it as a first draft. Between seeing the new Flickr come out the next day, looking at the new MySpace (it is amazing, by the way!), and studying Metro design... I came up with this revised profile page.
I decided it would be easier to do this page-by-page than trying to tackle it nearly all at once, and even now I'm still messing around with ideas.
In this version, the site would be 100% full-screen and responsive. Just as importantly, the focus was on keeping a clean and modern look that allowed models and photographers to upload their photos and network. The current site tends to be hard to navigate and move around, and I wanted to clear that up.
The menu bar would be fixed at the top, and a search bar would allow you to search by names instead of just a number of the person you're looking for that you would have to know in the first place to find. The profile settings were really slimmed down, but more on that later.
The focus here was on the photos. I wanted you to be able to see who the person was, what their work was, and decide if you wanted to learn more and see more. I didn't want you to get overloaded with stuff you didn't need, let alone wanted.
This is still very much a work in progress, but this is the first really solid step I've taken.
