Website Visual Concept Design Contest
It’s another Sonata Labs contest and we’re very pleased to be able to offer a much larger award this time - $2,000!!!
With that in mind, I must emphasize that we desire to keep this contest on a very professional level. Although we’ve had great experiences with past contests, bickering and accusing dialogue between contestants has occasionally caused undue stress.
We understand that it happens in discussion forums. However, please report all problems you may have via PM and Everyone: Please respect the work of others.
Now that we have that out of the way… Good luck everybody - This is going to be a great one!
Contest Description:
Designers submit visual concepts based on the objectives and information provided by Sonata Labs. Sonata Labs will evaluate each piece and provide feedback to designers at least twice per week. Sonata Labs will choose one contestant’s website visual concept(s) as a winner and award $2000(US) to that individual.  Prize will be awarded after coding has been finalized.

Basic Requirements:
Design new graphics/layout and visual concept(s) for the Sure Decisions’ website.
Visual Concept(s) Defined:
This may be as simple as an incredible Homepage design with powerful ideas for various content pages. It may be a package of pages that work together logically to creatively communicate a message.

Bottom Line: We need to be able to recognize that your visual concept(s) will be expanded into a comprehensive site design.
*** All designs must be in HTML (and/or css) format ***
Regarding Flash:
*** We don’t see a great need here, but we are open to a MODEST amount of Flash animation for visual enhancement only, not for any function.

Detailed Requirements and Information:
The Creative Brief below will help you conceptualize what Sonata Labs is looking for in a winning design. It contains a lot of information. Some of it will be useful to you and some will not. The brief will hopefully help give you an image of who your design represents and who we are talking to with a design.
The brief is not intended to restrain your creative authority - rather, to give you some direction.
