We're a web design company that specialises in building effective websites for restaurants (hence the name).
We reduce our costs by leveraging 3rd-party services (like SquareSpace and 99designs), and by specialising in a single industry (in this case, restaurants).
We're open and friendly, and transparent about our process and pricing.
We need a website that promotes our business, as we are hoping that the majority of our clients will find us either by word of mouth or by searching on Google.
We love 99designs, and we give great feedback to every designer. Please see the previous contest we held for examples of what to expect from us!
We're holding a blind contest - please let us know in the comments if you prefer this, as it will influence whether we continue to do so in future contests.
Restaurateurs in Perth, Western Australia, who are looking to promote their business online. They are not necessarily tech-savvy, and may be male or female, from 20 - 55 years old.
They probably aren't aware of the benefits that good web design can bring to their business, so we need to promote that in an obvious and succinct manner.
We expect our customers to find out about us, and to decide to work with us, by viewing our website. We do not want to employ sales staff to find new customers for us - we want out reputation and quality to be the deciding factor, and we want word-of-mouth recommendations.
Note that we will use 99designs for each of our clients; we look forward to hosting regular website design contests!
We've attached our logo, a blank PSD with the layer structure that we require to make implementation easy, and wireframes of the pages that comprise our website.
Colours should obviously be taken from our logo.
We only require two pages to be designed: the home page and the pricing page. The other pages are optional, and up to you whether you want to include them.
We're using TypeKit for fonts, so please attempt to use a font that matches one available from TypeKit.
The site is hosted on SquareSpace. A coming soon page is available here: http://www.geeksalt.com.au/
It would be nice if you could include site-wide search in the navigation, although this is not shown in our mockups (our mistake).
For inspiration, please reference the following site designs that we like:
Thanks! We look forward to working with you to create an awesome website for our company!
