Multiple web pages linked together through design elements and a "menu bar"?
show user profile  Nanne
Hello mates

My company is currently running three different web pages for our different services. So each site is very different in content.

However now we are working on updating these sites and we want them to be different from each other due to the difference in content. But still have some design elements in common to that you can see that they kind of belong together. And also we are looking for a "Menu" kind of thing that would be present on all the sites so that you can easily switch between the different sites and access those few feature that the different pages have in common.

So now we are looking for inspiration! Does anyone have any examples of web sites/companies that has got something like this, that we can take a look at?

I was checking out GameSpot.com and they use the same design for their pages but with different colour schemes for different consoles. That is kind of cool, and works great.

Any more examples? Especially for this "menu-bar-thing". Any inspiration is welcomed :)

Cheers mates!

So most CMS packages out there can let you host multiple sites through the same CMS and theming each one individually to your tastes.

As far as menu navigation goes, you can do a java floating bar on the left or right hand side that has icons of each site, and when you hover over it, it can display a floating menu of content of the other sites.

Gawker comes to mind of what you're trying to do but i hate their site layouts

http://kotaku.com/
http://io9.com/

The menu i'm referring to is like the one you see on cracked that tells you if you want to digg or share the article.

but it'd be your other site icons.

Thanks for the tips!

But I need not to worry about the programming; I have a team of web programmers covering my back :) I was just interested in the design, so thanks again :)

Cheers mate!
