One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - webknix
Great job on a simple, clean, yet stunning design, and the designer was so good to work with. He asked good questions to clarify our intent before submitting any designs, and he asked good questions all along the way to make sure he was going in the direction we wanted. He also took input from our team really well, making it in some ways a joint design experience. It was so obvious he was the right one for us that we quickly eliminated all other designers so we could focus our work with him. No problems with this designer - we would definitely work with him again.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

The site is going to compliment a printed business directory. The site and printed directory are both for small/medium local business that are providing products and services for other local business and local people, so we are not looking for a palm tree and sunny beach theme, we want a usable, fun but clear site.

the site will allow users to search for businesses, browse by category and have featured listings. on the home page I need a fun but clear design with,
- an eye catching 'advertise with us free' link.
- a large search business by type, by name or by location, maybe 3 input boxes.
- a login section- (not a major section of the page, maybe verticle along the top or middle)
- a catagories section in the center- don't worry about what catagories just make them up.-
- a featured business's section-text ads with maybe a small icon,
- the logo - would like to see this maybe integrated in the site design.
- Clear sections, not all cramped toghetherWant creative ideas!!

take some inspiration from the winning logo we really like.
