Contest Brief

General:
The website is for weddings.
We already had a design, but we decided to scrap it and make room for a more modern and organic look.
Website is not online.

The main audience is women.
We need the design to appear organic/fluid. Even though most of it in reality is square, we need it to appear NOT to be square :)
MODERN & ORGANIC

We will try not to influence your initial design creativity, as you are the expert here, we are only the judges.


You need to design 8 pages in your initial design.






Page 1 - Front page
Header Element:
with area for logo (Logo design not a part of this project), just write "logo here", expected size around 350x75 px, specific size is not important.

Login button (to tricker popup)

Menu (horizontal) with a designed mouseover effect
just call them OPTION 1, OPTION 2, OPTION 3, 4 and 5 (only one option needs to be designed completely with a mouseover effect)
A menu option also needs to have a roll down menu, so there are sub-options below each menu option.
The mouseover effect should be designed with a box below it with extra options. (so make the box below, part of the mouseover button effect)
The mouseover effect should also work/look fine, for menu options without extra options below it (FRONT PAGE menu option, does not have sub-menu, but still needs the mouseover effect)

Country and Language indicator
Indicator of what country has been selected
Indicator of what language has been selected


Current header can be seen at [url removed, login to view]
(not for inspiration)






Content Area:

Vendor Category List:
We would like a simple list of vendor categories. That would be a two tier list.
A header "VENDORS", and list of some categories
main category
sub category
sub category
sub category

main category
sub category
sub category
etc.
Expected around 6 main categories, with 3 sub-categories each.


Slideshow area (for teasers, tips, ideas, information, news etc)
Sliding images and text will appear.
Area around 450x250 px or something like that.
Make some design around it to make it blend into the design.


Article Teaser Areas
Small areas for teasers from the Article section. Would consist of a photo, header/title and some of the text from the article.
Example of current can be found at [url removed, login to view]
An effect on the photo is wanted... we do not want completely squared photos.. as in the example is fine, but maybe another effect is better for the overall design.
so areas around 220x220 or something like that
Put them where you see fit. (2-4 times on the page)


End the page with standard discrete copyright notice and link to privacy policy









Page 2 - Vendor categories presentation/selection
We have a selection of vendor categories (Clothes, Decoration, Rentals, Entertainment etc), each category has a number of sub-categories under it.
For example, Entertainment has sub-categories like: Bands, DJ, Comedy, Live Music etc.
We want photos to illustrate a category, along with the name of the category (at least all main categories, sub-categories may not be required)

We need a good looking presentation of those categories.
Sub-categories can be displayed as a roll-down menu or similar if you want, or they can be presented right away.
Note that some categories only has a few (2-3) sub-categories, and others has more (like 13-15 sub-categories)

I (a man) actually like the example on the following link [url removed, login to view], but it is way too square and not very appealing to women.

    Hey, you dont need to look after something that differs too much from another wedding forums in your layout, because design in this category depends on taste of your target group. So it should be very easy to navigate, harmonic and the colors may wake the associations with a dream wedding, so they should be in pastel tones and very decent.Im a woman and i exactly belong to you target group, i know where i would collect informations about wedding organization:)

    Hi there, I am working in your design right now and I am really enjoying it! However I have a little doubt. Could you clarify the vendor Category List for the homepage, please. The brief says you want a two tier list with six main categories. Am I right? Thanks in adnvance, Flavia.

      Correct. Six main categories shown in a two tier list (on the front page)
      Though I have to reject your entry. your design is the DEFINITION of being square/squares...

      I'll quote the top of our description:

      The main audience is women.
      We need the design to appear organic/fluid. Even though most of it in reality is square, we need it to appear NOT to be square :)

    Hi there, Can I design homepage and 1 more page for now to just show my creativity because designing 8 pages in 8 days is very less time and the pages will be less creative. I can design the other 6 pages once you'll "love" my homepage and 1 other page design. If you agree with this then I'd love to participate in this contest. Thanks!

      The thing is to win us over.. when the contest is over you still have 7-10 days to complete the job..
      Though we will not reward the money before all pages are completed.

      Submit as many designs as you want, and we will let you know which ones to scrap and which ones to keep working on.. there is no need to waste time designing 8 pages in a design we don't like.

    hi, what do you mean by organic, is it green or environmental style?.. fluid a is responsive web pages? meaning it should fit on any devices like tablet and smartphones. thanks

    • 3 years ago
    1. palmio
      palmio

      organic and fluid as in lines of nature, fluid like fluids (water, oil etc)... soft lines..
      not fitting smartphones etc, it will be done at a later state.

      We want it to NOT be hard lines. Even though webpages ARE square, probably because a screen is square :)... we want it to appear not square... so circles yes, triangles no .. :) makes sense?
      I would rather have a softly waved line than at straight horizontal line (just an example)

      so by organic I mean lines that nature could make up...
      More feelings, less math/trigonometry
