The Reaper's Den
This Reaper's Den is going to be setup as an indoor sports facility for numerous sports. There will be two fields, batting cages, weight rooms, and party rooms that will enable a variety of sports activities and celebrations. There will be sports (such as baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, dodge ball, futsal, and whiffle ball) and lessons for younger children, as well as early teens. In addition to the competitive aspect of the facility, parties of all types are a main selling point and these individual sports will be provide the parties main function (i.e baseball parties, dodgeball parties, whiffleball parties, etc).
The facility will be a family oriented sports facility, so the Reaper motif cannot be used in a dark or macabre style. There needs to be a balance in the design between family friendly but also incorporating a little bit of the Reaper motif in the design. The site should be open to people of all ages, but not too child oriented with an overload of colors. This company has a versatile set of services (lessons , games, or competition for all ages and skill levels), so we’d like that versatility to be shown in the design.
In addition to what is listed in the "page details," for references, the owner liked two sites. First, http://www.doombuggies.com/. He liked the purple color scheme of this website because of "The Reaper" in the name of his business, however this color scheme is a little too dark (both with the blacks, and the Halloween-esque buttons) for his business however. The Second Site is, http://mvpsportsunlimited.com/index.html The owner liked the content of this site and how the majority of the information was easily accessible, but the site is far too generic and we need the design to be much more professional looking. The logo provided could be included next to or with the navigational bar, but we are open to different placements of the logo if the design calls for it. It should still be featured prominently on the website in some fashion, wherever it may be placed.
The page we are designing is for the home page. Below is what we expect for the navigation bar as well as the content we will need to place on the page.

Need an area for a block of Text: The Reaper was a nickname acquired by Bo Vicendese in his college playing days. Soon after college, he founded the Baltimore Bat Company. The company made professional quality maple and ash baseball bats for professional and college players. Their flagship bat was the “Reaper.” The “Reaper” garnished major league approval and was used by several pro players.
List the sports in a phrase like: “The Reaper’s Den is available for your sporting needs in baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, dodge ball, futsal, and whiffle ball as well as others.”
