    Site: http://www.fatboymagazine.com/

    Info: The site is a guys site. Hot chicks, humor of all kind, MMA and sports discussions, gadgets, making money etc...

    I'm having a custom mascot created as I type - should be ready in 2-3 days. http://travsoutput.com/gfx/ - the guy creating the mascot. Its going to be something like a fat (but not 2 fat) redneck sitting on a couch drinking a beer.... Something like that... Once I get it, I'll post it...

    Until then, I'd like to get started on the design of the site.

    In short - I want something like http://www.newgrounds.com/ - layout structure wise. I love how they separated/divided their content...

    Here's the tricky part - I'm buying a VBulletin theme.

    http://vbskinworks.com/forum/index.php?styleid=243

    I'd like to keep the same layout structure for the header and header navs. This way, I can just plug them into the vb theme.

    I like the fat thick buttons in header nav. I'd like all 5 of those buttons to be unique. In other words, the Home button should have something that says home, the arcade button should have something that says arcade, etc...

    The 5 buttons needed are - Home, Babes, Humor, MMA, Arcade.

    You can keep'em reddish and yellow. I also need the header to match - leave room for the mascot and a 729px width banner.

    As far as the body goes - same thing.

    Like I said b4, I love the layout structure of newgrounds. Separate stuff in sections... Headers should match (but not totally be the same as) the nav buttons. Red/yellow..

    Also – like the header nav – each section header should be custom and unique to the content its displaying.

    Sections will include:

    Funny Pics
    Funny Vids
    Hot Babes (pictures)
    Hot Babes (videos)
    MMA Videos

    The above sections ^ should list 3-6 items with a thumbnail like newgrounds. The sections below should list 5 items with out thumbnails.

    Jokes
    MMA News
    Sport News
    Gadget News
    Movie/TV News
    Latest General Discussions

    Try to group stuff that goes together around each other… Make some wide like “featured movies” on newgrounds and some less wide like “site news” on newgrounds.

    I've had a few PMs regarding what I need exactly, no coding at all - all I need is the design.

    Also want to say that the design must not be wider then 1000px...

    Thanks again...

    Just like it says... the header (in structure) must match the header the vb theme comes with. The nav above the header and the rest of my instructions...

    Please let me know if you have any other questions...

    Sorry, that's all I've managed to do so far and now it looks like I won't be able to finish it until Monday. If you like it I will finish it on Monday for you. :)

    Thanks.

    Just to let everyone know. The contest will finish Friday (the 23rd) or when I find something I love... Please submit your entries ASAP so they can be given feedback and enough time for necessary changes.

    -----

    @ emzdesign: As I stated above, you can continue Monday, the deadline is Friday the 23rd. Regarding your design, good idea with using the toon for a place holder. The nav is under the header though, and keeping it the same as the VB theme, it has to be above the header. Also, I'm not looking for the same buttons as the theme, I just want you to use its shape (rectangles). Also, they're not custom to their category. Icons that depict the section they're links for - will work. As for the header, its not what I'm looking for but its fine for now until I receive the official logo. The body, again, the headers aren't custom to their category. They're not very well defined either. If you have a look at the example site I provided, you can see what I'm looking for.Thanks for your entry and hope to see a revision.

    To ALL: Please read the feedback I give to others so you can see what I want more specifically.

    Well - I'm really looking for the same layout of newgrounds.com but here are a few other sites I like... remember though, the layout structure of the content should resemble newgrounds.com more then anything...

    http://bored.com/
    http://www.collegehumor.com/
    http://www.dailyhaha.com/
    http://www.dorks.com/
    http://www.funonly.net/

    Let me know if you need any other information...

    WOW! I like that a lot... the direction its going in is great! Few things though, the top nav buttons need to be custom for each section and obviously the body needs content sections like described in the first post. (But you said you'll finish later, meaning you're not done - so good!) Also - I think it might be to much yellow... See if you can use more black besides the bg.. love the gradients by the way!

    thank you for the feedback :).
    though i am not too sure on what you mean here "top nav buttons need to be custom for each section" :/

    but here is my revised copy:
    http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/3789/fatboy3ig9.png

    the white boxes is where the icon for each section will go. i will fill in the content and create the icons later on tonight :)
