michalfinegold got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Design a website for company that makes software to animate your artwork
Check out michalfinegold's Web page design contest…
We animate stuff, and make software so you can animate stuff too!
Honestly I'm pretty open. I'd like something lively but with more pleasing and sophisticated color schemes than primary colors. And it could be nice to take inspiration from hand drawn, hand painted artwork and crafts. Content-wise: I need to take the company site, which includes general company info and a section about animations we provide, and unify it with the sites I have for my apps - www.puppetmasterapp.com www.fishypaint.com Design - please use your imagination don't go by what I did. Should be kid friendly but not too childish. Eventually we will have apps for adults too, and older children. I'd like to incorporate artwork and icons of the apps in pages for the apps, and incorporate my existing company logo in the main company page and anywhere else that feels appropriate. This contest is for 3 pages but whoever wins I would like to hire you to build the entire website, in WordPress. This is the big design challenge - to have the main company home page, and pages for each app (puppetmaster and FishyPaint) each working with the visual language of that app, a page for our animation services with visual language that works for that , a page for a blog... and somehow have this all work together. Can you do it?? Because I don't know how! :)
1. Home page - showcasing and inviting users to view our apps and our animation services, and blog, and leading them to our social media presence too. Currently I just have this: www.shmonste.com but it's not very good, too boring. 2. Puppetmaster app section - featuring videos and screenshots and a very clear call to action to sign up for the beta test. Currently I have this as a separate site www.puppetmasterapp.com but it should be as part of the company site, and better designed, utilizing the video language of the app. 3. FishyPaint app section - similar deal as puppetmaster but here the call to action is to download the app from the store. And visual language of FishyPaint app. Currently it's in its own site - www.fishypaint.com Somehow these have to all belong to the same site and navigate well between them. Don't know how exactly, was hoping you guys would :)
What to avoid
No primary colors shemes There can be a primary color in your scheme, just no "red blue yellow green" type of scheme. (Which people call "primary colors" even though actually they are not...)
FYI: I will be posting lots of videos in each section, and images, and tying into social media. Something to think about: we will want this to work well in a mobile version too. Also - we currently deal a lot with animating hand painted, hand crafted artwork. So that may influence your design. I'm attaching some stuff with my company logo - I do like this logo and feel it can work in a variety of playful ways, just not sure how to marry everything together... Im also attaching the icons of the apps - maybe they can serve as call to action buttons. And please visit the existing app websites to see how the actual apps look inside - screenshots and videos and such... (The PuppetMaster icon is actually a bit different from the hand made look of the app itself,...)
