How 45n5 started their web page design journey

Summary

45n5.com is a website (community) of bloggers and webmasters with the goal of making money online. We are looking to add a little bit of shine and attention getting look to our boring dark look.

Brand name

45n5

Description

Tagline:
We Make Money Online

Desired Style:
web 2.0 - modern - web appish

Accepted File Formats:
Layered Formats (.psd or .tiff)

You can view my current site at http://www.45n5.com.

I want the design updated to a more modern look that is a bit "fresher" than the current version. The layout should remain "about" the same, I do want a few changes that I have noted in the following mockup:

http://www.45n5.com/media/45n5redesign.jpg

To sum up the mockup:

1. remove the paid links bar

2. put the recent visitors there

3. put a 468x60 banner where recent visitors currently are

4. add two boxes above the current location of the posts, top moneylinks and rss

5. add 125x125 ad blocks to the menu

6. create a footer for the page.

Those are the only requirements. Have fun and get creative.

Some designs I like in my niche are

http://www.problogger.net/

http://www.shoemoney.com/

http://natewhitehill.com/

http://www.blogtrepreneur.com/

However I dont' want to replicate these blogs, I want my own design, based roughly on my current layout.

 *** I DO NOT *** want my blog to look like the ones above, I referenced them to show you what other types/quality of sites are in my niche.

here are a few web 2.o ish sites/apps that I like the designs

http://www.freelanceswitch.com/ (minus the goofy cartoon)

http://www.thisnext.com/

http://www.opensourcefood.com/

http://haveamint.com/

http://www.hbcweb.com/

I want the final design to be preferably in a Fireworks PNG, or a PSD will also work. I will need any fonts that you use emailed to me also if they are fonts not on windows.

I prefer to pay via paypal but am flexible to pay other ways.

Thanks. Have fun and get creative.
