Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are building a social media community based on sharing opinions.
Users can submit questions, comments, statements, links, pics. And the community can vote on various options created by the author. We want comments to be a big part of the experience too.
It's all anonymous. The community self-regulates content. Users can form groups or mash items to see levels of community agreement across multiple issues.
The aim is to help people test their views in an open forum. This could be just for the fun of seeing what others think, but it could also be a vehicle for someone to explore their personal identity.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Games & Recreational
Other color requirements
White, orange, yellow (but flexible)

We have built http://www.giddyfly.com already, and we plan to evolve the functionality based on user feedback. We're big fans of 'launch & iterate'. This brief is for the look and feel of the site. Ideas on how to arrange the information and the navigation are going to be really important too.
The priorities are:
- It must be super easy to post / submit.
- It must be super easy to respond to a 'giddy' (a posting)
- It must be easy to move from one giddy to the next - we're 90% sure that's going to be a feed like for example http://www.9gag.com but open to ideas.
- The navigation must be super simple and consistent.
- Mobile first - the layout should be designed for use on a mobile device first, desktop second.
We love simplicity and white space.
The tone is meant to be whimsical since discussions should cover all topics from serious to quirky. But not in a way that invites people to think it's 4Chan or similar.
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the logo and hosted website?
This is a social feed site and we're very aware there are lots and lots of them out there. We want to differentiate by focussing on opinions, and the groups and mash functionality. Also by having a very clean, simple site. No clutter.
(I'm assuming 'hosted' means we're hosting it...right?)
The home page should be the feed (or similar) so users can quickly access the list of items (we've been calling them 'giddy's).
When a user clicks into a giddy they'll see (depending on what is submitted) an image, text, the voting options, the results in a chart (doesn't have to be a pie chart but it's tidy), links, comment section below.
There may be different feeds like "hot" or "trending" or "new" that can be selected from a top nav bar or similar.
