This brief is for the home-page of a new website for UK based laser company, MDL.
We pleased to say we'll be inviting the winner of the project to help us with the design of several inner pages for the website too. Please only submit an entry if you are willing to do this. Note that we have spoken to 99designs, who are happy for us to continue working with you after the competition.
Payment for this competition is as listed, and we have an additional $500 for internal pages (which should require much less work).
