geir P got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Want to design classifieds 2.0?
Check out geir P's Web page design contest…
SkyLib is classifieds 2.0. It is social, so you have friends and groups there. We support more than just the traditional buying / selling of stuff: On SkyLib, you can also borrow/lend out to friends, give away or even donate items to groups you like. SkyLib uses powerful technology that does most of the job for you when you post something, for instance you can scan a barcode and get all the details about the product pre-filled. We also have an Android App on Play Store, that makes it even easier to post items. Registered charities can use SkyLib to earn donations, by having their members donate the proceeds of used items they are selling on SkyLib. Sports clubs and other groups can host their internal marketplaces on SkyLib.
We already have a website, but wish to re-design it so it looks better. We're looking for a new visual identity and a set of design guidelines for our site. The goal of this project is to develop a set of guidelines (fonts, colors, textures, shadowing, spacing, headers, icons, items…) that will be used through the website to govern page design. These guidelines may be used later in the SkyLib Android app. We are cool with you changing everything, even the colors of the logo. We want to come across as green rebels who are changing the world by making consumption smarter. The site should look professional, appealing and trustworthy, but without losing its green rebel spirit.
FRONT PAGE: Here, we show a few of the most popular items that are listed on SkyLib. We think that showing a search field where you can search all the items on SkyLib is also needed. We also want to communicate the different use-cases of SkyLib: - For individuals, we offer a free, easy way to share items they no longer need (or rarely need). And the flip side is they can find things they need. - For groups, we offer a way to create internal marketplaces or sharing communities - For charities, we offer a way to get donations from members who are selling used items for the benefit of that charity We also want to promote our Android app on the front page. The action we want from a visitor is to log in or register, so the login & register action is quite essential. Users can log in or register via Facebook, Google or with an email address and a password. ITEM PAGE (when logged in): See for instance http://www.skylib.com/page/item/6311865953026048 (you can log in with the user firstname.lastname@example.org, password: 123456 to see what it looks like) for what we currently show for each listing. The top bar is shown when logged in. It offers the user a way to get home (click the logo on the left), search for something (with auto-complete), add a listing (by clicking the +), and via the drop-down on the top right, get to messages, my stuff, items like by me, and my profile. The listing itself consists of a title, the category (which is hierarchical and can have several levels), an image, a description, and some optional fields depending on what type of item it is (books have authors, skis have length, movies have directors etc.). We also show where the item is located on a map, who is sharing it, a button to send a message if interested in the item, and similar items. There is also a button that can be pressed to "like" the item, and icons for sharing on social networks Facebook and Google+. We want to keep the functionality, but need a design that looks more professional, and makes the item look more appealing than today.
What to avoid
Changes that imply major server side changes should be avoided. This means changes to the content we fetch from the server (for example new information about each listing) and functionality in general.
It is very important that the page is responsive and can be used on all screensizes and platforms. That means some of the components may need to move around when adjusting the width of the screen.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at $799.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
geir P collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
