NearlyFreeSpeech got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Web Hosting Provider Site
Check out NearlyFreeSpeech's Web page design contest…
Our mid-sized web-hosting company needs a new site design that accurately reflects its "bare metal, no bull****" values and attitude.
What's your vision?
- A design that matches our matter-of-fact style - Extremely minimal use of graphics (almost entirely text & CSS), but still visually appealing, such as 1-2 small graphics usable with CSS for gradients/rounded corners. - Let us present significantly more information/pages/options than the left sidebar currently allows without creating a cluttered mess - Common essentials:- * A navigation bar w/visual cues of where you currently are - * A site search box. - * Our logo present in the same size/location on each page. - Main page essentials:- * The first impression of our site and service. - * No scrolling, period. - * Current main page load is 3 files, 7,605 bytes: HTML, CSS, and logo. We're not saying it has to stay that small, but make every byte count, and make every extra file count at least double. - * We might be willing to decrease the text content of the main page if we can fit it in elsewhere and get more impact - FAQ page essentials:- * This is page is part of the contest to show how the site design handles pages with tons of text. - * Text should be liquid-layout with reader-friendly margins. - Signup page essentials:- * This page is part of the contest to show how forms look in the site design. - * Items currently in bold are critically important but even so often get missed. Do your best to make them stand out without going over the top.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at $799.

It all began with a design brief.
