One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - true02
The designer was wonderful to work with. I had many things going on and she kept me on task. I was constantly reminding the contestants to re-read the design brief but not with ksenija. I will definitely use her again in future projects...or maybe hire her full time!

How Help911 started their web page design journey

Company name

TAX911.CA

Overview

We have people telling us that our website is very bad. It stops people from calling us. Several clients said the same thing. We need a rescuer.

Just check out our website and you will see what we are talking about.

We provide urgent tax services; such as late taxes, tax owing, etc.

Through our website, we want people feel: corporate image, professional, intense, urgency, power, concerned, documentary feel, little bit of conservatism, etc.

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

People with tax problems such as late filing, unreported income, audited, tax debt owing, etc. They are frightened with tax man who may take serious action against them. (30 to 65 year old male and female)

Requirements

Two pages are needed (Home page and Other page):

For Home page:
a. We need three or plus columns design.
b. The following 5 groups headings with around 50 words content each should show on home page:
-Who are we?
-Why us?
-Services.
-How it works?
-Action to take
c. We need all the leading edge stuff in the web: ie Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.
d. It will be cool to have live tax news feed rolling on screen somewhere.

For other page: we need three or plus columns design with similar color tone to home page. The mood should be more neutral. Not as intense as Home Page.

We prefer sleek design, Clean & professional to both pages.
Color theme: no limit. Just strikingly impressive and business professional.

Please feel free to make it look GOOD. Really GOOD. After all you are a visual artist.

Page descriptions

see above

Existing website

Tax911.ca:
What we do not like:
-The color combo looks unattractive. Too dark.
-The layout is way outdated
-The grouping of content is tiresome to read at home page.
-Does not feel sleek.
- No leading edge stuff: Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, live feed, blog, etc.

What we like:
- The contents are good.
- The SEO is decent.
- It is done by WYSIWYG software and can be upgraded easily. BIG BONUS. We prefer to be easily modified later for content.

Example websites

IMPORTANT Update:

Please be creative and be artistic as what we got so far looks boring in general. All look like direct copy of the commercial copies we gave in the examples. Need more pictures. (please use watermarked photos for now. We can buy the photos you choose later)

To not limit the creativity of the designer, we have to remove the examples.

Some visual clues of what we like. (removed some from initial notes)

i. Photo example - removed to give more freedom to designers.
ii.. http://www.xxxxx Template #24254 - removed to give more freedom to designers.
iii. http://www.wxxxx - removed.
iv. http://www.websitetemplates.org/cat…page2.html Template #31901 clean, simple, intense feel of picture. Nice grouping of information.

v. http://www.wxxxx/ Removed
vi. http://www.websitetemplates.org/cat…age14.html Template 29775 - with Twitter, Face Book, Live Feed, etc.
vii. http://www.frigoteh.hr/ - nice rolling live news feed
