How wgears started their web page design journey

Company name

ubooq (ubooq.com)

Overview

I'm a young entrepreneur working on my next project: This will be an online marketplace for independent authors.
I have a huge love for beautiful design and awesome typography. I love it, but I suck at it, which is why I need you!
I love coming across awesome website designs that really show "out of the box" thinking (wow I'm full of clichés today) and I'm hoping for something a little bit different, but still functional.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The target audience for this project will be writers, authors, hobbyists, bloggers, writing students etc. Basically anybody who has a story to tell.

I want to keep a "fun" element to the web site, so don't be afraid to be a bit creative.

Requirements

- No strong gradients (This isn't an ABSOLUTE rule, but I don't want anything too harsh. If you think you can pull it off, then feel free)

- Not too "boxy" - a few rounded corners never hurt anybody

- No stock photography (I'm just not really into it)

- A cartoon or fun little character would be better in place of stock photography. This isn't mandatory though.

- "Web 2.0" (yes I know this term is so overused it's just not funny)

- Simple, clean, easy, beautiful

- Light themed design (doesn't necessarily have to be white, though)

- I really like the design and colour/pattern scheme from http://simplebits.com and http://www.iconshoppe.com -- But you're the designer though, not me.

- Some samples of designs that I like can be found here:
http://ubooq.com/examples/logos.png
http://ubooq.com/examples/websites.png

- The websites in the above example are:
http://twitter.com
http://artypapers.com
http://simplebits.com
http://browsehappy.com
http://corkd.com
http://dribbble.com

- I will require the final design in layered PSD format

- This will be a website that will have an online book shop as it's main function, so it would be good to see that incorporated in the design

- If you have any other questions or need me to elaborate on anything, PLEASE feel free to message me about anything, at any time. All questions are very welcome.
