Project description

Contest - In this contest, we need a home page and one subpage designed for www.galaxyvisions.com.

Deliverable - layered PSD files no html coding needed: one Layered psd for home page (redesign sample attached) and one layers psd for subpage Top !0 Reasons (http://www.galaxyvisions.com/top_10_reasons.php)

Winner - The winner will get additional one on one offer for design of other pages on the site. As well as an opportunity to be our dedicated designer and support all our design needs moving forward (banners, page updates, print, etc).

About current site
- www.galaxyvisions.com site has been around for many years and it's time to make it more sleek, trendy, crisp, clean and modern.
- Add more photography and relevant visuals to attack/hold attention.
- We are known for our excellent and quick service and affordable prices.
- We want to come off product and price centric while providing great support.
- Our brand is always known for its 'galactic' theme, we'd like to keep that but not too domineering. However I'm weary of pages with dark backgrounds.
- The robot that you'll see throughout the site, shouldn't be on the homepage, it may only be used for Managed Services maybe if no better ideas.
- We like photography over drawings.

WHAT TO DO:

1. ENHANCE THE ATTACHED HOME PAGE
Attached is the version our designer produced after many iterations. We are finally happy with the layout, however this design no longer satisfy our vision, it's too cartoony and primitive in our opinion, colors look grayish not crisp.

New home page should have all the elements that are seen in the attached version (log, menu, contact #, banner, product boxes, quote or question, live chat, descriptions, blog, our cusomers, our awards, etc)
- We like the layout, so you can keep it the same or change it if necessary as long as all the elements are on it.
- Navigation - 1. hosting 2. dedicated server 3. promotions 4. specialized services 5. About Us
- SEO is very important so some content is a must.
- It should be product centric.
- Should link to our sister site: www.cologuard.com.
- Banners: can use any of the following, it will be a rotating banner.
1. Our Moto: Superior service at a lower price than our competitors. ‘Take A Look’
2. We make switching from another provider EASY and FAST. ‘Get Started’
3. BUY ANY PLAN GET AUTOMATICALLY UPGRADED TO THE NEXT ONE! ‘Shop Today’
4. DEAL OF THE DAY! Take $15 OFF MONTHLY FOR THE LIFE OF ALL PACKAGES ‘Shop Now’

2. SUBPAGE REDESIGN THE ORIGINAL TOP 10 REASONS - BE CREATIVE!!!!!!!!! IMPRESS ME!!!!! AND YOU GOT THE JOB!
Subpage - please redesign this page - http://www.galaxyvisions.com/top_10_reasons.php to look more like this one: http://serverintellect.com/company/why/
subpage - should have: relevant page banner, quote or question form, view plans, live chat, managed services, contact #, testimonial or other related text such as article or video.

Competitors -

Comments

  • For the one subpage please design the '10 Reasons Why You Should Host With GalaxyVisions' page http://www.galaxyvisions.com/top_10_reasons.php. (not the product page as requested in the original project description. I like this page a lot! http://serverintellect.com/company/why/ The page should have a 'Quote or Question' , live chat, contact sales, view plans, design your solution, customer quote, and a unique button or banner to managed services (like on this page http://serverintellect.com/cloud-servers/ 'features and add-ons).
  • For the sub page please redesign GalaxyTop 10 Reasons to resemble: http://serverintellect.com/company/why/
  • This is the proposed version of the redesign home page, but we think it could be more attractive.

  • Hello renata I come up whit this modern design for you company , i put all that you write on the brief i make the PSD file , so you can change what ever you need on this desing . Hope you like it Thanks Alex
  • Thanks for your feedback, I will submit the updated design in next few hours. Thanks. Best Regards, Xclusive
  • xclusive, #8 as part of the design please design a subpage see contest brief for more info.
  • xclusive, thanks for your quick turnaround! i like #8 the best so far. i just submitted another example #10. can you pls: (1) change the body background back to white, but (2)do something to make the product boxes pop. (3) also i like how in #10 the 4 paragraphs and pics are done. text surrounds the images, images are not all the same, i think it makes it interesting and (4) also the way they have a background/border. but please don't make it the same as Quote or Question, i love the way they pop now it's the most important item on the page. (5) At the bottom where clients and awards are, i think that should also have the 'galactic' background as at the top and gradually blend into black footer.
  • too dark
  • Renata, I put #5 back in the contest, with a rating of 1, you can adjust the rating to what you want.
  • Hi Renata, I have submitted my new entries #8 and #9 with top variations and put the black footer (Bottom Part) in both. I have put the 4 pictures also in body area in a different style. I did not remove the "SEAL" from the top but removed the Calendar and placed the Servers image. Looking forward to your next step. Thanks. Best Regards, Xclusive.
  • Hi Renata, Thanks for your feedback as I am updating the design. The design of Webstormz you referred which I made, there is no any black color on the top but the footer (bottom area) is black. So I am doing the footer black for your design and you will get the better design. Thanks. Best Regards, Xclusive
  • xclusive, i like a lot what you did for this contest: http://www.designcontest.com/website-design/website-design-for-our-internet-marketing-company/entry/39 love the banner, the black background at the top and bottom, maybe something more like this.
