This contest is for the basic layout & design of the site. Submit an initial design for the home page, or a product page, and I will provide feedback. You should also take button design into consideration ("Search", "Add to Cart", etc.)
The winner will need to provide the layout for those two pages, but you can concentrate on one for your initial design and I will focus on the ones I like best. I would like a designer that I can work with on additional pages after the contest (flat fee or hourly).
Home Page: http://www.cardcow.com/
Typical Product Page: http://www.cardcow.com/161863/ w/Tall Image http://www.cardcow.com/117892/
Product Page with a lot of text: http://www.cardcow.com/26935/
Pretty simple - We sell vintage postcards (and "stock" images of those
Adjectives would be: fun, interesting, historic, retro, vintage,
quirky, offbeat, nostalgic, classic
Don't pay too much attention to our current design. It sucks, and I want something more or less completely fresh.
Sites I like (decent product pages):
http://www.modcloth.com/ (Too feminine for us, but nice design)
http://www.kaboodle.com/ (not bad)
Sites I DON'T like:
(Both too "antique", too "old" looking)
Ebay (need I say more?)
