NearlyFreeSpeech.NET is a web hosting provider specializing in do-it-yourself pay-as-you-go shared hosting for technology enthusiasts. Our reputation is for no-BS, no marketing-speak, and being run by nerds, for nerds.
Correspondingly, our site and service are very much "bare metal."
However, the design of our public site is a little rough, even for us, and there's no doubt it hurts our business. We need a new public site design that accurately reflects our beliefs, our image and service offering without looking like it was coded together over the weekend by someone with no design experience learning about CSS for the first time.
In other words, we want to quickly convey a lot of information to potential members without the feeling that we're visually pummeling them.
Since our public site has a fair amount of content, this contest will incorporate the designs for only three pages:
1) Our main page - https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/
2) Our public FAQ - https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/about/faq.php
3) Our signup form - https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/si…signup.php
In addition to payment, we are a web hosting company and we will credit you (including a link or email address) as the site designer in our blog announcement about the new site as well as in our public FAQ, putting your contact info in front of a lot of people who may just need web sites designed.
