Project description

We currently have a "starter" site at totallymobiledjs.com that also works for mobile. I did a basic site using Weebly and don't know where to go with it. I just need a couple page site consisting of home, services (hopefully with pictures that are easily changeable) and a contact us form. The Home page needs to "POP" and get your attention right away. I have uploaded both sides of my business card to show our contact info for the website. Chris (my brother) and I have started this "family" business. Chris has been a DJ for over 25 years in various clubs and mobile DJ companies. He (Chris) is the performer and I will have him post a few ideas on his thoughts for the website. I would like to thank everyone for their time they are devoting to this contest. This is the first time ever on this site and I am looking into ways to make this my fun and profitable for those of you that choose to enter a design.

Comments

  • With this design and taking your comments, I have created the navigation bar on top with a Book Now button for ease of use and simplicity. This can be linked to PayPal or Square or any other payment system. The main image is in a carousel in order to show people the various areas you service(you have arrows on the side to move from slide to slide). Below that you have an availability schedule, so clients can plug in their date and can book you if it is available. Below that is your Twitter feed(I might have moved that down further). Next is your Services section, which highlights they areas you work in. The arrow on the right side can toggle down to give the client a description of how you handle weddings, corporate events, private parties, etc. Then you move down to your testimonial section. I added a photo gallery so clients can look at some of your events. At the bottom, clients can play sample tracks of what they are looking for when they book you.

    The color scheme of the pop of color against a dark background makes your green pop and intrigues the client to scroll down to see what you are about and what you do.

    Thanks for the critique with the other design. I hope that this one meets what you are looking for in terms of design and catching people's eye.

    Thanks again. #43
    • About #43, @knettwerk We strongly like this template! You have captured the focus of our target market and it looks like a shopper can know within seconds who is being served. How easy is this format to update and maintain?? Will this site be easy to take payments for services?

    • @jme574 Glad you like the design. This can be made into a Wordpress theme and you guys can maintain it. This will have the ability to take online payments via PayPal. All you need is an account. Let me know what you think. Thanks again.

    • @knettwerk Are you say that you can convert the site into a wordpress template or do we need to find someone else to do that for us?

    • @knettwerk What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 I can convert it if you want that. It will be an additional cost though.

    • @jme574 Have you considered the option to make your design into a Wordpress theme?

  • About #42, @sunny2007paswan Thank you for this submission. The contest is nearly over, so we need to see what the sub pages will look like. We are also looking for template colors of Neon Green over dark or black background. Also if you can use more imagery and focus on customers at all types of dances and events or holidays and less concert or club pictures. Lastly, we need to know how easy it will be to update and make changes to this site if yours is selected. Thank you.
    • @sunny2007paswan Thank you Sunny2007paswan, We appreciate your effort. You are considered a finalist at this point with this submission.

    • @sunny2007paswan What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 Yes, I am able to provide you all no need to worry .

  • About #30, @Ashan CONGRATULATIONS! You are a finalist!
    • @jme574 thank you very much sir i hope i will get atleast the third place. Cuz this time competitive is very high and you are better than other contest holders. Thank you.

    • @Ashan What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 yes of course. But if you need the site in wordpress, it will cost additional. I can add anything you want like music player,calendar, image gallery etc..but my suggestion is keep the site in html. I know its easy to handle the site when its in wordpress format. Because wordpress is not "secure" than html. But if you need it im on it. Thank you very much sir..

  • About #44, @Posspoint We like the colors of the template and the layout is a good presentation. The company logo is sharp and the links at the top of the page are good.

    We are needing multiple photo galleries for different customers and not so much videos. We are also needing a view of what a music player will look like.

    In addition, we are looking for a template that presents a company that caters to different event types, not just dance clubs or concerts.

    Overall We like this design but we are curious to ask how easy it will be to update and maintain this site if yours is selected as the winner.
    • About #44, @jme574 You can convert my theme design to wordpress and it would be very easy for you to make some changes to the content like services, any text, photo, etc. I have a team to be able to convert design to wordpress. If you want you can hire me outside of the contest

    • @Posspoint I like your suggestions, I forgot to ask you if this template is as easy to navigate and use on tablets and mobile devices as well?

    • @jme574 yes like all design before #33 & #15

    • @Posspoint Thank you Posspoint! We are working to narrow down the finalists and you are definitely one of three finalists at this point with this submission. Is there anything more you can present or offer than what you have submitted?

    • @jme574 about design #44 if you want I can swap some of elements of design #33 or #15 to #44 or vice versa like (background photo, photo gallery feature, news, testimonial, etc)

    • @Posspoint What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 as I said earlier, with wordpress you will be able to easily change content text and images/photo gallery itself. I've a solid team as web development since 2008 you can hire me outside contest to do this job.

    • @jme574 HI there this is admin Sharie I just wanted you to know that if you need html work and coding you can ask designers if they do this type of work and then hire that designer in a 1 on 1 project and negotiate the dollar amount

  • LAST CALL FOR ALL ENTRIES! Please make your last submissions now for consideration before the contest expires.
  • About #29, @Jeanne We are down to the last couple hours in this contest and we really like everything you have presented to us. Do you have the ability to change the template colors of this template to a dark or black background with neon green?
    • About #29, @jme574 I can change everything including the color. But this is just psd design, without code or html file, site not ready for use and I can write to my front-end developer friend for this.

  • About #40, @knettwerk Thank you for participating in our contest. You are from Chicago so we are assuming you are not unfamiliar with the mobile DJ industry and the services we provide for our clients. You have literally covered nearly all our important points within one simple page design, however...The website must convince a visiting shopper within the initial 10 seconds of visiting the website that THEY are the primary concern and focus of the entire website. Our target market MUST believe within 8 to 10 seconds that our service is about the customers and not our DJ gear. We provide lighting and sound for formal and informal events. We cater to different music formats. IF we were singularly targeting a club scene or EDM crowd, your submission would win easily. As much as we like the design, the flow, and nearly everything you have submitted, the constructive criticism would be that I do not feel the imagery or focus is customer centered. Also, our target colors would be neon green over Midnight black. Thank you.
    • @jme574 Thanks for the feedback. I will try and mock something up that reflexes your color scheme and brand identity. I choose the blue against the dark background in order for it to pop and have the customer be drawn to it and hence click on the link in order to call you or book you. I will redefine this and submit it to you tomorrow. Thanks

  • There is little more than a single day remaining in our contest and a winner will be selected. We appreciate every designers contribution, hard work and creativity. We also appreciate your respect towards the details which matter most to our company. However, as Phillip has said previously...though there are many incredibly good looking websites submitted here, we are unable to navigate through your templates and test how user friendly your design is for the novice internet user to the most tech savy internet user. While we like much of what we have seen in colors and design, flow and imagery....it will ultimately come down to visitor usibility and how easy it will be for us to maintain the website.

    We are looking closely in this last day at the designers who have invested most into this contest to see who will make the last adjustments and win. We wish all designers the best of luck. We are anxiously awaiting your response.

    Thank you.
  • Once again I would like to thank everyone for their design submissions! Everyone has done a wonderful job and we wish we could afford more than one site. With 2 days remaining it is coming down to usability. The sites all look great but looking good isn't enough. We need ease of use for the customers and functionality for us. At this time we are asking since we are not able to navigate these sites yet if you could tell us what you have built into it. I.E. does it have an integrated calendar, a booking or contact us form generator, a photo or video gallery, how easy are this items able to be edited by us for use? Are we able to change our packages details and pricing easily if it has a booking form? If it has a calendar are we able to block out dates or times or schedule consultations from it? Does it have a cart or payment section that will integrate into our current Paypal and if so how easy? If it has a photo or video editor how easy will it be to change pictures or videos and are they able to be locked so they can't be downloaded without permission? I know we hadn't went into detail and asked for much of this but several of you have included some of these items into your design so I would just like a little more info on them to help make our decision when it comes time to select a winner.

  • Hi -
    This design is structured in a way that it can be responsive(it is able to be viewed on laptop, tablet and mobile devices). It is a single page layout which is easier for loading and for SEO(Search Engine Optimization). The player on the bottom is also scalable/responsive.

    I was not sure of your color scheme so I chose a light blue color. Let me know if I am off base on this and I can change it if you would like.

    Let me know what you think and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    P.S. an integrated calendar can be added to the "More Events" section and their is a contact form on the bottom. The basis for this is to have the client call you and you can sell them or upsell them on your services. A structured pricing plan can be added if you would like for me to show you what that would look like.

    If you would like a PayPal integrated design for deposits, that can be added. Also the use of different pages would start to come into play since a infinite scroll would drive people crazy. Especially since people might look at this on their mobile devices.

    This design can be easily made into a Wordpress theme so you can edit it yourself and take payments using Woo-commerce.

    Let me know.

    Thanks #40
