tomBN got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Fun New Website for Wordplay Spanish Game
Check out tomBN's Web page design contest…
Wordplay is a simple game that makes it really easy to learn and remember Spanish words and phrases. It has been used by over 300,000 teachers and students which are the primary target audience, although I plan to eventually target all age groups and add other languages.
My primary goals for the site are simple, clean, fun. I want the visual style to reinforce how easy it is to use. Also, it must be easy to adapt the design for mobile devices. In fact, I expect most users to be on smartphones. I prefer lots of whitespace. I also prefer a white or light background to dark backgrounds. I just completed a logo design contest, and I'd like to incorporate the new logo into the website design. Although that logo is green, I prefer blue as the primary brand color. I'd like to have a nice color palette with a variety of vibrant colors, but not overused.
The homepage should be a quick introduction to the site and provide a basic overview of how it works. You can look at the current homepage at www.wordplay.com and see an initial cut at what I'm thinking for the new site at http://alpha.wordplay.com. The Lesson page shows off contents of a lesson which primarily consists of a collection of word tiles. I've attached a wireframe. You can view an ugly working version of this page at http://alpha.wordplay.com/lesson/58447. The word tiles have some important constraints which are described in the attached image TilesOverview. First, the aspect ratio of the image is fixed, because I have a bunch of existing images that must fit. The blue text on the tile is the spanish word or phrase which may extend over two lines so there must be enough space for this. Some tiles have additional green text at the bottom that serves as "context", so there must be enough space for this. Finally, at the bottom of the tile is the "mastery meter" which fills green as the student develops mastery and then blue as the student develops long term retention. So designs must show at least some tiles with all of these features. Note, clicking on the tile causes the english to be shown instead of the spanish. All of the content from the sample page must be included in the design including the name of the course (which links back to a course page), the name of the lesson (which is a dropdown that makes is easy for a student to jump to another lesson in the same course, and the student's current mastery and retention for this lesson. The final page is the student dashboard. This provides the main page where a student goes upon login. It shows them their current key metrics and makes it easy for them to jump to recent lessons. I'm attaching a wireframe. I expect to add some additional data points and charts to this page over time.

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
tomBN collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
In the beginning when I was looking at designers Aneley really stood out to me because of the bold pictures that she used and how fluid her designs were. The website she made me looks so professional and eye-catching! I got exactly what I wanted and she worked with me on making it look amazing no matter how many revisions I requested. She also has offered to work with me even after I have ended the project so everything goes as smoothly as possible. I would work with her again for sure on future projects, but I would probably do a skype call halfway through, it really helped clarify everything that text just can't compete with, even though she is very quick at replying to my messages.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
