We want a 1920x1080 (1080p) or 1920x1200 (16:10 ratio) as a minimum recomendation for a background graphics image that we can simply upload as the background on our landing page. We would like it to include our logo image and use a black and red colors throughout the background image. Because it will be a background image we do not recommend using a lot of text on the image as we will be using modules and iframe videos on top of the image. So we are hoping to see a design that can include all 6 elements in the design, but does not use a lot of words in the process.
We thought about maybe having each element showcased inside a semi-transparent box. This way we can use the box as a place for our team to input text. So for an example if a designer were to put three of the elements on the right hand side of the background image and three on the left hand side of the background image it would fit correctly.
We are hoping that a pro designer can envision what a landing page background should look like for a gamer website that does not endorse a single game but is a hub for all gamers and games. So a background image including Call of Duty characters would not be what we are hoping for.
We are hoping to see a design that has a (HUD-Heads Up Display) feel for gamer's and clearly showcases all six elements on a custom background image that has great use of the red and black colors and great logo implementation.
If possible we would like the center of the background image to be darker because that is where we will place modules and/or videos.
We would strongly recommend that designers visit http://SpawnCandy.com and view the video at the top right hand side titled as "SpawnCandy Project Details". This video will help explain the 6 elements and give the designer a feel of what we are trying to showcase in the design.
