To the next lucky website contest holder,
Consider yourself fortunate if GDT Design chooses to participate in your design contest. I cannot say enough about GDT Design. He won an ultra competitive website challenge with SIX amazing and super creative finalists. I gave GDT copious, detailed notes, and he followed them to the letter, while continuing to produce elegant, crisp designs. He has no ego--meaning, he eagerly accepts feedback and corrections, and had no problem adapting his creative to fit my business needs. A desirable trait in such a talented person!
I have very high standards, and GDT met or exceeded them all.
GDT did a fantastic job of utilizing my logo elements and weaved them intricately throughout all the pages of my website design challenge. He also created a strong stylized aesthetic which really added character to my website. During the design process, it was clear that he did a good job reading the design brief and understood what was required of him; this meant that his initial designs were of high quality. After the job was done (he was already declared the winner of the contest), when he found out I could not afford one of the images he used, he gladly found and replaced the image with a more reasonable alternative.
GDT is a nice guy, a talented artist, and a true design partner. I look forward to working with him in the future.
How mikeycon started their web page design journey
We are an online marketing company, looking to start a new type of hybrid marketing site, aimed at connection local shop keepers, restaurants and clubs with a direct audience. Something they have control over to really motivate people to get into their store or buy their service.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is the coupon grabber, discount code seeker or similar. We are targetting the sms market for local offers, so the emphasis has to very much be on the mobile phone discount code.
Take a look at t3xt.co.uk. We have made the website already. What we are looking for is a complete design of the index page to make this page come alive and really look good.
What we need is for you to take what is there and jazz it up big time. Leaving all the boxes, search bars, tabs etc all in the same place. Just a complete overhaul of what's there.
We will of course need a merchant page overhauling too as part of the webpage design http://t3xt.co.uk/merchant/codes/1413 and the logo doing. We have no idea about a logo at present so we just put a placeholder image there for now.
We look forward to some great designs, very much looking forward to also working with the winner in the future on all the other marketing materials we will need. PROPERLY LAYERED PSD FILES ARE EXPECTED.
