Contest Brief

I am a programmer and I am doing a site is for a friend, a writer, I will do all the necessary programming but what I need is the HTML design and static content.

Here is what I need:

- The first page will have the navigation of the pages of the site: Main (current page), Biography, News, Books, Social Media, Client's Voice, Contacts Us
- The top of the page will be her picture, and next to it a small self introduction with her signature
- Underneath this mini biography there will be two columns of boxes (this can change up to your design)
- The first columns will be:
o Books: here the five books will be displayed, the info will be picture, name, ... etc., just small information
o Client’s voice/In the media: This will be a list of comments made about her, either portions of mails, or articles in the web … In my mind I am thinking that each entry will be logo of the site (Facebook, newspaper, a mail icon for mail contacts), then the text, potentially the name of the person, and potentially a link to the site making the full reference.
- The second column will have three boxes one on top of the other
o News/Events: List of up to three events in the upcoming future: date, name of the event, location ... that should be all
o Media Updates: a list of a few posts in the social media for her or from her. I am thinking for each entry of icon (facebook, twitter, youtube) and text, at the end the date/time
o Blog: a list of a few posts in her blog, similarly I need name, small content, date/time
- At the bottom of the page icons linking to the following services that she will have too: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Wikipedia, Blog, Quora, LinkedIn, Pinterest, [url removed, login to view], Google+, Yahoo and Rakuten

A logo may be required in this main page as well. I will provide the logo for now but she may ask to change it for an extra fee.

Anyway, the design of the page goes for you, but the structure is the previous boxes I just mentioned, they can of course change as long as it makes sense. As you can see the site will have seven main pages and other subpages, but that I will explain once the project is assigned to you.

She is not picky and I am not picky either, something good that convinces me will do and I will grant the project fast. So if you send me a mockup of this first page (remember that it is more than just this main page) I will present it to her and we will assign the project fast!

Summarizing the whole project will be designing in HTML: main page, books list, one page per book (five books in total), News, Social Media, Client's Voice and Contact Us. I will do all the necessary programming, I will need the HTML design and all the static content only.

She will need a social media presence as well, so potentially more images and logos for sites like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn ... etc will be required at an extra fee.

Also, she really likes the simplicity and structure of my site ([url removed, login to view]), so please use that to gather ideas. The colors she likes are pastel tone of yellow, green and fuchsia/cyan.

Happy Bidding and best of luck!

    Friendly reminder, I will not be accepting any more entries in 24 hours and the winner will be decided a few hours later. If you want your submission to be reviewed and considered, please make sure it complies the general guidelines provided to everybody.

    And please stop asking and/or wondering, the stars rating means nothing, I am using them to group designs aspects that will be used in the discussions. In fact, my favorite design right now has only one star!

    I have gone through all my notes and I have posted personal comments to each of you. I am asking you all to follow the general feedback provided and submit a new design following those comments. I am meeting her next Wednesday night, submissions after that will not be accepted. Please reply to each of the five questions I have asked, your answers will be reviewed as well next time I meet her.

    I am doing a second round of analysis, I am revoking submissions that are not relevant to the next round, it absolutely means nothing! I will be contacting each of you over the next 12 hours, with detail explanation of what went wrong and what need to be changed. Please be patient and stay put, at this moment I am not accepting any more submissions, only from the people that I have sent direct chats today.

    Apologies for the delay, but in case you are not aware, everything stopped in Tokyo from Friday due to a huge snow storm that finally today Sunday is settled. I will be working today in getting you all the expected feedback.

      Insulting is that you do not read the comment I posted two hours ago!

    Before you start asking, if your design is still active it will be discussed with her tonight. The star system means absolutely nothing on how good the design is, it is just information for me when I talk to her on points I want to stress. So please ignore it, it means nothing, avoid asking me questions like "Why is mine 4 and #x is 5?" Thanks!
