ABWeb got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Sleek, contemporary design for a business that designs websites!
Check out ABWeb's Web page design contest…
We are a long-standing website design business that builds all types of websites for many different types of clients. We've successfully run 19 contests in the past for our clients and awarded a total of $6,500 of prize money. We would now like to redesign our own website.
Designs I like: - www.psd2html.com - font sizes, ease of use - www.bam.com.au - clean, simple to use - wwos.ninemsn.com.au/rugby-world-cup/ - background canvas photo - www.dreamengine.com.au - background canvas photo - www.harveyfresh.com.au - background canvas photo - http://abpages.com/bigcommerce/ - unclutterered - www.vividgroup.com.au - large banner photos - www.slinkywebdesign.com.au - latest projects thumbnails - www.templemantwells.com.au - spacious
The homepage needs to have high impact, with a modern/contemporary feel that's very easy to use and uncluttered. The following elements need to be displayed on the site, in order of importance: 1. Logo 2. Company slogan "Get your website high." 3. Our telephone number & email address: (08) 9271 7791 firstname.lastname@example.org, and entitled with the call-to-action "Got a question?" and Live Chat button (eg http://tinyurl.com/6jfx2u3). Preferrably in the top-right corner so that it appears on every page of the site. 4. Very large canvas background photo or graphics (see examples below) 5. Primary navigation menu: Home, Portfolio, Our Services, Get a quote, About, News, Contact Us, Client Login 6. "FAQ" section with these links: - How much do websites cost? - Can update my website myself? - How do I get my website on Google? - Can I have a simple shopping cart website? - Do I really need Facebook & Twiiter? - Can I send a good-looking email to my clients? 7. Banner slideshow that largely features one of our client's websites (take screenshot from www.muzzbuzz.com), with smaller clickable thumbnails of other client websites. 8. Large primary heading "Your website is in safe hands." (50pt+) 9. Secondary heading "Easy-to-use, professional websites for you." 10. One paragraph of lorum ipsum text. 11. "Our clients" section displaying 3 logos. 12. "Testimonials" section display 1 one-sentence testimonial (use lorum ipsum) 13. Social media icons - Facebook, Facebook "Like" button, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google +1. 14. "Special Offers" subscription form: First name, last name, email address, industry (drop down menu select) 15. "Our Partners" section displaying 4 logos (see attachements) 16. "We accept VISA/Mastercard" icon 17. Footer to include 8 plain navigation text links (duplicate of primary navigation menu) 18. Small copyright text in footer
Here's some tips that will improve your chances of winning the contest: - Give close attention to the design's detail, down to the last pixel - Don't overuse the Photoshop layer effects (eg bevelling, drop shadows). Keep it simple. - Use large fonts, large buttons, with plenty of whitespace (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_space_%28visual_arts%29) - Try to avoid the design from being too "boxy". - Our current logo is displayed on top of an image of a web browser (as per www.abweb.com.au). If possible we would like to retain this, although we can appreciate it may be difficult to work with and so are willing to consider designs without it too.
