What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Logo is already professionally designed and I like it (can be resized). Colors used shoud be: primary - grey (various shades), blue from the logo as a primary accent color, bright orange or green (not chosen yet) as a 2nd accent color. I would like to use nice fonts for text headers, but not anything that needs to be downloaded as a type kit. If the "bits and pieces" idea from the logo can be somehow used elsewhere on design that would be nice, maybe module header icon or background on modules/headers/footer. I like a concept of a greyscale blueprint for site main background (where I have grey grid now). My twitter page https://twitter.com/founderbits has a similar background but it's too detail heavy for a background, need something more subtle, lighter.
I need a design for 2 pages as a starting point:
Layout similar to what I have as a landing page now on http://www.founderbits,com, but in the main content area I would like listing of 6 categories as links and list of tags as links under them. It would be great to have icons/thumbnails for each category. Initial 6 categories: Hosting, Analytics, Marketing, Administrative, Commerce, Professional Services
2. Product listings category page - a list of products and services with reviews. Each item will have these fields:
- Name, description (about 2 sentences), rating (5-point based), # of reviews, tags assigned, special offer (1-line)
There should be some link/icon to expand reviews and comments.
What to avoid
Type kit fonts. Large illustrations. Excessive use of color.
I will need 5 more page types designed after I lock down a concept and this contest ends. Ideally, I would like an ongoing relationship for future feature additions.
