Global Sports powered by YORGOO Press and YORGOO Media
The brand new Global Sports web site is progressing. Some new features have been added, namely flash banners for the header and a 120×600 skyscraper to feature snap shots from the life at Global Sports. New Media modules have also been installed.
Global Sports Product Header
The top flash banner consists of 4 header banners rotating using a flash rotator providing also the random shutter transitions.

To see the banners in original size, just click on any one of the images and navigate from the overlay browser.
Global Sports new Home Page Look
The look of the site changes completely with these dynamic elements. The header can be used to feature hot products, custom products, promos or any other item by just replacing the existing banners. (Full size view on click.)
Global Sports People Display
The Side banner is composed of 7 separate banners which are loaded to a flash rotator similar to the head banner. I will not display them all here but here are some of them:

How about Music while visiting the site?
Global Sports Music
Visitors to Global Sports may like to get the vibe by listening into some of Global’s preferred tracks by using the small but hot YouTube player. The idea is simple: Create a play list on YouTube and load it to the player.
For the test run we have just selected tracks from friends of Global Sports, such as SholaÂ Ama and JP Esq.
The music player is located on top of the People’s Gallery:

Some of the sequences have been shot at the Global Sports Store in London!

Try to find Shola Ama on the Featured Peoples’ Gallery :-).
Check it out on the site.
Nike, Adidas, Jordan and Friends
A second YouTube module is on display right under the featured Images on top left of the site. We are testing the home page holding 3 YouTube players now, the third one being in the sidebar right, close to the bottom of the page.
This second player displays brand ads Nike, Adidas, Jordan and others. It’s just one more media component which can be used for other purposes, for example to display video clips of customization of sneakers and caps or Limited Edition products.
Just for the record: the third video, located in the right sidebar at the bottom is the latest clip loaded to Global Sports US own built-in video gallery.
Global will select which features it wants to display. As they are all loaded, one can also imagine a changing display, depending on the mood, the weather, the price of tofu, or other good, scientific founded reasons.
