Cory L got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Website Redesign for Leading Study Guides Provider (Long-Term)
Check out Cory L's Web page design contest…
FreeBookNotes.com aggregates all of the study guides and book summaries for over 35,000 books.
Overall, we favor a crisp, clean and functional look and feel. But that doesn’t mean it should look boring! The design needs to have enough creative flair to be fun, light-hearted and pleasing to the eye. Most importantly, we favor MODERN web 2.0 typography and want a site that looks simple and fresh, not old and boring. We really like when designers add extra design flair (e.g. shading, accent lines, etc.) that are not in the mock-up but that enhance the visual appeal of the site. Of course, we don’t want to go overboard with visual details because we don’t want the site to look messy or confusing. But any little details that you can provide to make the site look more fun and inviting and user-friendly could go a long way.
We need to completely redesign our main landing page. The site has not been updated for years, and it looks way too boring and old-fashioned, so we want to redesign the page (and ultimately, the rest of the pages on the site as well) in order to give it a much fresher look and feel. Here is a link to our detailed mock-up (on Balsamiq): https://drew.mybalsamiq.com/projects/freebooknotes/Main%20Book%20Page_v1 This mock-up should give you a very good idea of what content we need to display on the page and what the basic layout should be. Please include all of the content in the mock-up in your design submission. We encourage you to stick closely to the basic layout and structure on the page. What we are looking for is a designer to take our mock-up and make it look really modern and attractive. There is certainly still plenty of room for you to be creative. We leave the colors and fonts up to you, and you should feel free to try changing up some of the smaller design details as well. For example, in our mock-up we included a few different ways to separate the sections of the page (including accent lines, boxes, dotted lines, etc.), and these are details that we definitely encourage you to experiment with because we really don’t know the best way to tie these elements to the overall design. We also need to redesign our logo, and we are thinking that the best way to do this is to first design the new website, and then we will design the logo in order to match the website. We are not asking you to spend a bunch of time creating a custom logo for this project, since that should be a separate job. Instead, you can just use a placeholder for the logo that you think looks good enough for now. We promise not to judge your design based upon the logo that you use/create.
What to avoid
All fonts/icons/colors/styles used in the current version of the website should be completely ignored. We want our redesigned site to look WAY more modern and web 2.0.
We will have several other pages to redesign for this site, and we have a long-term roadmap for the site that should result in plenty of work for the winning designer (assuming you’re interested). We are ultimately looking for a long-term relationship with an outstanding web designer.
