Hello - I would like to redesign your website based on this architecture:

http://seasidesyndication.com/relevant_visuals_music.pdf

Its a place where comedians can connect and make sitcom episodes for fans to subscribe to.

If interested, please send me a message at [email blocked]

thnx

Ben

    Hi Ben,
    We are not looking to redesign our website, especially the part where you would turn it into a music site, since we are a video site. Pro tip: if you want to convince people that you are good at redesigning websites, you should have a functioning website to show them, not a static PDF. Good luck!

    Pat

    Hi Pat.

    Thnx for your feedback. You can find the working architecture here www.devatm.com (music videos) and here www.footschool.info (sports videos). I wouldnt waste your time if it didnt specialize in video broadcast.

    Don`t be misguided by the clothes; concentrate on the architecture:

    Musician = Athlete = Comedian
    Band = Team = Show
    Concert = Match = Gig/Episode

    Go here and click the Join the Fan Club link, then do a facebook connect:

    The page you land on is a variation of a fb-like wall. Instead of showing the most recent in a vertical stack, it offers a box for each feed provider (group or user profile). In the box is a slideshow of photos, videos and articles. Click on a video and it plays in the box. Multiple videos can be played at the same time. Move the boxes around and it remembers next time you return to the page.

    You guys have mastered the art of building the best content. What about setting up a portal to aggregate the best upcoming talent? Especially at a time when traditional tv is dying.

    I`ve attached my resume for your review. Also here are the portfolios of me and my team:

    Thanks for your reply. As you can see, though, we already have an entire functioning website already built and being maintained by our own design and engineering team; it seems crazy to outsource building a whole new site, doesn't it? Also, we designed our site so that you can do almost everything without having to create an account, so user profiles are not the most important pages, the video playing pages are. (Do people really want to play multiple videos at the same time!?)

    Again, thanks for your interest.

    Hey Pat.

    I commend you on building an experience that is not contingent on user
    registration. Excellent strategy for entrance into the marketplace! You now
    have an established brand that has the potential to compete against
    boahemuths like Comedy Central in these tumultuous tv times. Capitalizing on
    this pedestal is something you have the capacity to accomplish in order to
    grow your brand and attract the most talented upcoming comedians.

    What I am talking about is complement to your current site; not a
    replacement. Your current site does an awesome job highlighting
    professionally produced content and brings in established stars for original
    clips. What about the upcomers? What about pushing an audience to buy
    tickets to local performances? What about endorsements from established
    comedians so that upcomers can find a new audience? Where can comedians
    coordinate with each other? Where is the variety show format working on the
    web?

    You don`t have to outsource if your not comfortable. Hire us and we`ll be
    employees and work alongside you.

    Ben
