      Hi executeart, thanks for your 2nd submission. The 2 call to actions are conflicting at the top of the page. Also, forcing the new user to create an account right away might not work. Perhaps removing "Get started now" and changing the form to ask for a description of what the user needs would make this simpler feeling and therefore more compelling.

      I like how you've modernized the steps by making them look like pins. The top freelancers section looks nice as well! The idea of a map at the top is a great idea, but I think it the details could be cleaner. I wonder what this would look like for a particular skill like "Hire Freelance Copywriters"

      This is more of a banner design than a page design. I like the modern feel of it though. However, it feels a bit chaotic.

    Hi Everyone,

    There seems to be a trend towards the block design. This is very similar to what we already have. I would like to see some other kinds of entries that don't use this technique. I am thinking of pages like:

      With responsive designs being a focus these days, block designs are definitely the future. I'm going to work on other contests but good luck! :)

      Hi andrewnickell, I agree with you about responsive and block designs being the future. However, many of our customers are still using desktop computers and may respond to other designs more favorably. Thanks for your effort! Love your design.

      Hi Webgik! Thanks for submitting. I like your inclusion of the "Need Details? Look next video:" and "Still Questions" it is useful for people who aren't ready to post a project at the first call to action, but not distracting from the goal of the page. I also like the formatting of "Our Top Freelancers" with the 3 stacked profiles and block of text followed by another button. The orange background on the testimonials section keeps the brand feeling fun and light-hearted. Your direction -- trying to answer all doubts -- is a great approach! I like how at the end, you give visitors a way to ask questions. However, I think the top of the page is rather chaotic, with arrows pointing in every direction. The varied fonts, font sizes, and font colors make the top of the page feel a bit disjointed. If there was a way to highlight all of our great benefits without making the visitor look in circles, I would rate this a bit higher.

      I know it's only a small thing, but I really like the cloud detail that you used to separate the top section. I also like the burst of projects that appear behind the sign up form. The map of freelancers is very well executed! It gets the point across that we have people from around the world, but it isn't overwhelming. Great job! I also like the mosaic of faces, as it shows that we have real people ready to help. I know one of our competitors uses this for some of their pages, and it probably works well. I would remove the sign up form, though. It looks too confronting for a new visitor who has just landed on the site. Also, while I like the image background, I think the text gets lost in it. Perhaps throwing a darker (or lighter) box around the text would make it more readable.

      Thanks for your submission! I like the approach you've taken. The hovering text over the background image feels very sleek. Your design for the "How It Works" steps is much easier to understand then what we are currently using. The inclusion of the video is great for first time visitors, but seems haphazardly placed. Not a big issue. I wonder what this page would look like if we created it for content around the headline "Find PHP Developers" or "Hire Content Copywriters" -- Ideally, the page would be versatile to use for very specific content. I also like that this page would render well on mobile devices.

      Thanks ajb, that is really simple! It is missing visual cues -- but the shape of the form does draw my eye to the Call To Action. I wonder if it is too simple, not giving enough reason for a visitor to post a project. Overall, I like the concept though!

      Snali, now that I can see the higher resolution image, I really like your design. Your highlight of "only pay freelancers once you are happy with their work" is placed nicely, very visible, but not distracting. It's also a great benefit to highlight! The red "Get Started Now" really stands out with the black circled text. I also really like the modern look of the navigation and search bar. It is barely noticeable unless you are looking, which is great for getting people to perform the desired action. The rotation of images is a nice touch if we want to display special promotions or testimonials, etc.
