HomesIndex.com is a project I started last year, but never finished. You can see the design leaves a lot to be desired.
That's where you come in. I need *you* to create a modern, clean, professional design for HomesIndex.com.
The new HomesIndex.com will focus on the U.S. housing market news in a blog style format. We will regularly post and comment on news headlines and market statistics. This blog-style homepage will need to have right side navigation (recent news, archives, investing guide, find a home, home buying guide, home selling guide, moving guide). The blog will probably be a modified form of wordpress.
The other design I need is a refreshing of a homes listing page such as:
All the information should be the same, including the right-side navigation. The look needs to match up with your new blog-style homepage design. I'll take your new design and apply it to the various listings pages, as they are all very similar.
Anyone looking for housing market news. Professionals and potential home buyers alike. Site should be professional in nature.
-Two designs (see "tell us about yourself)
-I require a white main content area, prefer easy-to-read black text in content area. Headlines and breadcrumbs can be different colors. Secondary color blues. Then yellow/green for accent.
-Clean, professional, up-to-date design
-I like effects in which sections "jump off the page" with shadowing, like http://jhnmyr.tumblr.com/
-Logo redesign is encouraged to go with your new design. Simple is fine.
-Repeatable background image/color preferred to reduce load time. Must work for multiple page heights.
-Deliverables will be the .psds with everything layered for easy html work.
I like simple, clean design with effects that pop off the screen like
