Project description

Our startup, SparkSquared needs an innovative and fresh design for our website's landing page. The home page needs to show our logo (attached in the Zip file), a menu and some graphics that showcases how the site works. Details for the website design and requirements are below.

Page design
-----------
1- The site width needs to be 960px, fixed AND in a layered PSD format
2- Jpeg image files for relevant sections of pages
3- The color palette needs to match the logo design (attached in Zip file)

Menus
-----
The main menu needs to have the following:
1- What is SparkSquared
2- How does it work
3- Contact Us

The menu can be text or image based and need not be working links.


Visuals & Graphics
-------------------
The wire-frame (attached with the zip file) includes a sample of how we'd like the home-page to look like. We need to make it intuitive for users to understand how SparkSquared works. You'll need to create a visual that shows the steps involved in submitting your business plan, rating other business plans and winning a prize with SparkSquared.

The process is outlined below:
1- User submits an application fee, say $100, along with her business plan
2- Business plans are aggregated together along with the submitted fees to form a contest prize e.g. $5,000
3- Users vote on each others business plans with the winner receiving the collected fees.

We'll need a nice visual that highlights how the site works.

  • Hello, sparksquared I'm Glad that you liked my concept. As requested, removed the Text and centered the Register button, I also added an Inner Shadow to popup the design elements just a little bit. ( menu, Buttons, Blocks) i can set it back to normal if you don't like it and wish to go simple. Regards.
  • I like it. - Remove the log-in button for now and replace it with Beta - Center the register button and remove any surrounding text as well as any images/text below the button The main page should have the logo, menus, visual that shows how the site works and another image to register. Good work
  • Greeting sparksquared, Kindly let me know your feedback on #5 and #6 , I have used Your logo color schema to match the website elements, However on the competitor websites it has a lot of data so i just demonstrate the layout based on the sample you provided, Let me know if you have any changes or ways to improve my concepts thats if you like my submitted entries. Regards,
  • nom1986 The design needs to feel modern (take a look at mint.com for a good example). The background isn't really working and the circles are too harsh. Look at http://basecamphq.com/ for visuals to use to describe how the site works. Also, mint.com has nice fonts and a very simple background. Thanks, CH
  • can you eleborate more about what you require in the design. it will make easy for me to work on it. thanks regards N.
  • hi CH, i have made a revision to the design, it is now one background design, and also make some effects to the visual to make it more catchy. please check and let me know if you have any thoughts or idea. regards N.
  • The visual needs to be more catchy and appealing. Also, would prefer one background for the whole site and not two.
  • hi CH, thanks for liking my design, i have make the changes as per your comments, lighten the background colors and add some textures in background as well as in the circles. also there is a small box which will appear when user click on the circle to show some more details about the procedure. please review and let me know if you require some thing else. regards N.
  • Do not use a black background. - The visuals need to be more appealing and catchy. - remove everything below "Register Now" Good start, tweak it and we might have something good.

  • "Jpeg image files for relevant sections of pages" means that we want individual image of any graphics in the website design. You don't need to do any coding (no CSS/HTML). PSD for the whole design + individual images for graphics to make it easier for us to customize it later on.

  • Dear CH, It is still not clear. What do you mean by 'Jpeg image files for relevant sections of pages'? Please clarify. You mean that you need a html/CSS job for your project? It's important to know before designers start to post their mock-ups. Thank you.

  • Hello CH Let me clear one thing You mean we have to provide only .psd files of the design or you need the slicing and coding job in this project? And what the size you are looking for? It will help us better if you clear us these things. Thanks
