One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - webknix
Great job on a simple, clean, yet stunning design, and the designer was so good to work with. He asked good questions to clarify our intent before submitting any designs, and he asked good questions all along the way to make sure he was going in the direction we wanted. He also took input from our team really well, making it in some ways a joint design experience. It was so obvious he was the right one for us that we quickly eliminated all other designers so we could focus our work with him. No problems with this designer - we would definitely work with him again.

How mydesigns started their web page design journey

Summary

3 very similar pages (.PSD files), NO CODING REQ'D.

Once one page is done, the others should be very simple to create (i.e. copy/paste).

We're overseeing/contracting out the re-design of their web site. We cannot disclose the name of company.

****************************************

DO NOT USE any existing company logos or names in your design entries. Please just make a placeholder logo, we'll replace with our client's logo later.

****************************************

PLEASE READ the detailed description and look at the provided images (links on photobucket).

Company name

Cannot Disclose

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

This contest is for the design of 3 pages only (.PSD files), NO CODING REQ'D. We need 3 pages designed: homepage, category page, individual product page. We will use the product and category pages to build out the entire site for our client.

Our client provides internet and other communications services including:- DSL High Speed Internet- Voice over IP Phone Service- High Speed Internet over Fiber- TV over Fiber (similar to cable)- Wireless Phone Service- Satellite TV Service- Land Line Phone Service & Long Distance- Bundled services (grouping several of the products)

--------------------------------------------------------

General design requirements (applies to all pages):

--------------------------------------------------------

LOGO: NOT REQUIRED. Just put in a placeholder. We'll place our client's logo in the design later.

Web page size: 960px wide

Small graphics: Please try to keep the graphic file sizes as small as possible. A significant number of our client's site visitors are still using dial-up service. We need the finished web page design and code to load quickly.

Color theme: The background of the body (960px wide) should be white. You can use oranges, blues, greens and grays as needed in the different blocks/sections of the layout. Other colors can be used for bullets or icons, but the main colors should be oranges, blues, greens, grays, and white. The edges (beyond the 960px wide body) can be some other background color (light gray or another light color).

Gradients: The use of gradients on navigation and section header tabs/bars is encouraged.

**EDIT***

Navigation Bar: Please just make up text links to use in the navigation bar (i.e. DSL, PHONE SERVICE, TV, etc). We'll replace them with our client's links when we get the site coded up.

**END EDIT***

Splash (large area at top of a page): Each page will have a splash element at the top of the page that will either be the entire width of the page or ~70% of the width of the page, depending on which page it is (see detailed page requirements below). This splash element will feature a particular service or group of services and will contain the following elements: an image of someone using the service (at the left of the splash), name of product, a small descriptive paragraph, bulleted list of features, some kind of user rating element (i.e. stars), and a large button that says "sign up now" or "start now" or similar.

Please use fotolia.com for stock imagery if you can. You can download comp images for the design. If we like the images, we'll purchase them and use them in the final design delivery to our client.

Design Blocks: Design the pages so that individual products or categories of products are grouped together in block sections on the page. These blocks will include product name, short decriptive paragraph, bullet list of features, learn more and sign up buttons or links.

Here are a few examples of designs we like...they are just for reference. Please don't copy their designs.

--------------------------------------------------------

Homepage design requirements:

--------------------------------------------------------

Homepage Layout guide: please use the following layout guide while designing the homepage:

http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/…sketch.gif

Splash Block: The home page will feature a particular service (i.e. DSL High Speed Internet) in the splash element at the top of the page. This splash element will be about 70% of the page width, aligned left on the page. The general elements for a splash (listed above) should be in the homepage splash.

Category Blocks (below the splash): Below the homepage splash please add thin verticle blocks that feature the different service categories. So for example, the client offers serveral different speeds of DSL High Speed Internet (we'd call DSL a category) - one of the blocks on the homepaqe would show a general description of the DSL product category. Another verticle block might show another category of products. In each of these verticle blocks prompt the user to learn more about the category with a link or a button.

Right Side Blocks: On the right hand side of the homepage please include various block elements that might include: newsletter signup form, featured services, ads, blog post snippets, news snippets, latest forum entries, list of articles.

Articles/News/User Comments/Reviews: Under the category block/areas we need a section for articles, news, user reviews & comments. Again, here's an example of what we like:

--------------------------------------------------------

Category Page design requirements:

--------------------------------------------------------

Category Page Layout guide: please use the following layout guide while designing the category page: http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/…sketch.gif

Splash Block: The category page splash will be the entire width of the page. It will feature/highlight one of the products/services in the category. Be sure to include a brief service description, feature bullet points, and 2 buttons "sign up now" and "learn more".

Product Blocks: Below the category page splash, please include individual verticle product/service blocks and include the name of the product, short description, small bulleted feature list, learn more and sign up buttons/links. One of the blocks is the featured service...so please make it stand out from the others (it should be very obvious which of the services is the recommended/featured service). Note that these product/service blocks will only fill up about 70% of the width of the page leaving an area on the right side of the page for featured services, ads, blog article snippets, etc...like on the homepage.

Right Side Blocks: On the right hand side of the homepage please include various block elements that might include: newsletter signup form, featured services, ads, blog article snippets, news snippets, latest forum entries, list of articles.

Articles/News/User Comments/Reviews: Under the category block/areas we need a section for articles, news, user reviews & comments.

--------------------------------------------------------

Product/Service Page design requirements:

--------------------------------------------------------

Product/Service Page Layout guide: please use the following layout guide while designing the product/service page: http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/…sketch.gif

Splash Block: The product/service page splash will take up the entire width of the page. It will include an image of someone using the service (i.e. someone using a computer), a short description, a few bullet points explaining the top features, pricing, a "sign up now" or "get started" button.

Product Description: Under the product/service page splash will be a product description block/area. Use icons or other representative images to emphasize the product description paragraphs. You don't know the details of the products/services obviously, so just design with representative graphics that we will replace when the content is created.

User Comments/Reviews: Under the product description block/area we need a section of user reviews & comments. Right Side Blocks:On the right hand side of the homepage please include various block elements that might include: featured services, ads, blog article snippets, news snippets, latest forum entries, list of articles.That should be it...is that enough detail? ;o)
