Contest to change the design of the front page of PowWows.com
This contest is to redesign the front page of PowWows.com. The site continues to grow and the front page needs to include more information and links to our other sections.
No coding is necessary on this contest. But we are looking for someone to code the winning design. Please contact me if ineterested.
The new design should use the colors and grapics from the site. The layout, menu placement, etc can all be moved around or changed completely.
The design should be a Web 2.0 style that is professional looking and easy for users to navigate.
Please incorporate the following ads into the design.
Leaderboard - 728 x 90
Rectangle - 300 x 250
And 3 Google Adsense ads of any size.
We are looking to use design elements like the examples below to easily include a vast amount of information in a small space.
Here are examples of sites we like. These are included not necessarily for color and style. But the way they use rectangle and tabs to display information.
In the area for "What I Want", I'll list the information that needs to be included in the front page design.
Thanks for your time. I appreciate your work.
Please post any questions you have to the message board.
