Ac9003 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Need a new design for our website on child-christening
Check out Ac9003's Web page design contest…
Who we are Our small family based company, Spitze, runs a few websites, and the flagship is www.barndop.nu. It is à Swedish site, (barndom means "child christening") We run our company from home in our sparetime, but work with other websites in our professional daily lives. Business model Our business model is quality information, great content and copy. We do not run any e-commerce. All our revenue is based on advertizing on our site (mainly from Google Adwords). About www.barndop.nu Our website www.barndop.nu is all about the christening/baptizism of children. Our visitors are typically parents who are about to christen their baby (in Sweden most people choose to christen their children, and typically at about 6-9 months of age). www.barndop.nu is a guide to the whole experience of christening a child. It contains popular hymns and songs, poems and verses, a planning guide, checklists on what to consider while planning, how to arrange a nice christening party, how to take nice photographs, how to design invitations, popular christening gifts... and so on. Primary target group Primary target group for the website is parents about to arrange a christening, and secondary target group is christening guests looking for suggestions for christening gifts or poems/verses to write on a card, probably. What we want help with Our present site, which is a few years old now, needs a makeover. What we want to do is to use one of the existing free WordPress template out there, and we would like the designer to recommendation such an existing template, and then design elements to "pimp" that existing WordPress template for us.
We adore the images and overall expression of Photographer Anne Geddes.Check out www.annegeddes.com In her blog she even managed to capture some of the feeling we would like our entire website to convey: [to a baby] “You are a marvel. Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again..........And what do we teach our children? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. You must work - we must all work - to make the world worthy of its children." We also like the colors and arty illustrations of this site (although entirely different in structure from ours!) http://www.aliciaswedenborg.com/ Here is a couple of examples of palettes we like, what we would describe as nice and “dirty” colors. Please do not feel bound by this particular information. You need to find a design that YOU believe in and colors you like, of course! We are merely indulging in "favourite colors" here! These are perhaps a bit too gloomy, but close-enough examples of some favourites none the less: http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/1835382/Ideal_Neutrality http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/77121/Good_Friends
Our requirements about the design We presently have a very basic Word-press theme, but would like to upgrade to a new and more professional design, and - very important: a template that support the latest version of WordPress. We want a new standard three-column WordPress theme, with header image. We want the navigation at the left column, like we have on the present template for barndop.nu. However, if there is a template where one could ad 2-3 navigation-tabs at the top of the page as well that would be fabulous, since we plan on starting a forum in the near future, and it might be good to have a tab for that at the top, clearly drawing attention to this part of the site. The header image must include the name of the website: barndop.nu or Barndop.nu (with versal B, whichever) and the tagline "Allt om dopet" Deliverables We expect help with creating new design elements (photos, graphics, buttons etc) that we could use on an existing WP-template (we expect recommendations from the designer of which WP-template that the design elements would fit). Our choice of designer will be based on both the design and which WP-template he or she recommends, and how well that WP template is suited for a content information-rich site. Please visit www.barndop.nu to get an understanding on the amount of information we provide on the site. Key words We would like a design that signals both "professional", "good taste/stylish" and "trustworthy/serious", but also "inviting", "joy", "warmth", "love", "family". "Memories", "precious" and “welcome to the world” are good words too. Add a bit of gravity of a big moment of life, perhaps (somewhat like weddings) - but with a twist of playfulness that we associate to children. Colors Naturally we would not like to go with very dark or sharp colors, like black, since this is a light and bright occasion. But we must confess: we are a bit skeptic to the typical pink/light blue baby-theme that seems to exist everywhere (including the stereotypes pink=girls/blue= boys). However, at the same time soft pastels comes pretty natural with this type of website, don't they? We do like creamy colors, rather than cold pastels. “Dirty” colors are a favourite, like duck egg blue rather than pastel blue, if you know what I mean? Overall: think "precious baby" and "beautiful solemn moment". Style and sophistication in choice of colors is definitely on our wish list! Logotype The so-called-logo on our present site www.barndop.nu was a quick-fix and nothing we are particularly attached to, nor have we worked hard on establishing it anywhere. Please feel free to change the present "logo" however you wish!
Thank you for giving us of your time and enthusiasm. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask we will do our best to answer ASAP. We are very much looking forward to this project!
