antboy got their new web page design (coded) by running a design contest:
Photography Directory / Portal Template $450
Check out antboy's Web Page Design (Coded) contest…
Feel needs to be modern professional design web 2.0ish look - site needs have more of an arty portal / newsy feel to it rather than just a list of links - so the links forums and articles (maybe including an image from the article) and classifieds feeds need to be well integrated and NOT sprawled down the page like your standard blog - logo has already been designed the url http://www.photographysites.com
What's your vision?
Desired Style: modern professional design web 2.0ish - arty portal / newsy feel - see brief for detailed description Accepted File Formats: see the brief Photographysites.com is a very busy photography portal / forums site which i intend to extend into new areas I am adding a CMS system and classifieds teasers for which will appear on the front page Manin Concept - so i am looking for a new design which will accommodate the current information top sites by categories and forum posts in addition to articles (there will be more detailed site reviews and probably other articles) and classified recent listings and links to various categories. Site listings - i am open to the idea of not showing lists of sites on the front page maybe some type of graphic or a smaller list of sites + a graphic - surprise me Design Feel needs to be modern professional design web 2.0ish look - site needs have more of an arty portal / newsy feel to it rather than just a list of links - so the links forums and articles (maybe including an image from the article) and classifieds feeds need to be well integrated and NOT sprawled down the page like your standard blog - i like the way many of the templatemonster designs make good use of space - check them out for what i mean - but i don't want it to be tooo heavy on the big chunky graphics - i want to ensure the site is fast loading - its a busy site it will use the new logo i have had designed see here http://www.photographysites.com/newlogo - the colors for this can be adapted so don't be constrained by the colors in the sample - i prefer the version with the tag line it needs to be designed in a way to accommodate ads - such as skyscraper large banner or square in the key areas - eg above the fold and on the left hand side - maybe some other areas - also places for smaller banners to link partners and other advertisers - i don't want the front page overloaded with ads - please use your discretion and make sure ads places are clearly labelled in the design it must also have a menu system across the top so i can link to my other sites (eg blog - photo gallery - free web Host) or oher areas on the site (forums - classified - Site Reviews) general design to be adapted to secondary page - with appropriate ad areas, menus and integration with forums, classifieds and articles. Other Points to Consider No flash - its too slow for many users bear in mind that i will need to use a header and footer for skinning the classified / forums / articles you need to design and provide html for the front page and secondary page so it can be adapted to our template system. graphics need to be supplied in vector format capable of being imported as vector into Xara Xtreme Pro (ai - works fine) - this is in addition to gifs or whatever needed for the standard html page good luck i reserve the right not to appoint a winner if no satisfactory design is found - though this has never been my experience for past contests i have run here and i want this done relatively quickly
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.
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 (coded).
antboy 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!
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
