The purpose of the redesign is to update the look and feel of our website, including incorporating our new logo.
There are three things we want to see in a new design:
1. We buy and sell gift cards, so any visitor to the site should see the “Buy Gift Cards” and “Sell Gift Cards” buttons prominently displayed on the page.
2. Contact information should be prominent and any visitor should be able to see that we are accessible and they can call us.
3. We have a very active social media presence (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) and we want that to be prominent)
From a color scheme perspective, we like http://www.zendesk.com/, however, we buy and sell gift cards and so we do not want the software company layout of zendesk. We like the layout of http://www.chocri.de/ and would like to borrow heavily from their layout, including the following:
1. The way they have displayed their main call to action (we would like two rotating images, one for “Buy Gift Cards” and one for “Sell Gift Cards” – These images must be aesthetically pleasing with stock photos and gift cards – no flash, just HTML slides).
2. We like the footer layout.
** IMPORTANT **
This contest is for the main page. The winner will be asked to design the “Buy” and “Sell” pages.
We prefer designs in Abobe Fireworks but Adobe Photoshop is acceptable.
