Design brief

Brief Overview

I am an open source (PHP & JavaScript) toolmaker, consultant and developer looking for a new site design. I am a professional with a plan and need to look like one.

I need a site that is:

- Simple yet sophisticated
- Colourful but not distracting
- Fluid design with precise information presentation

In summary I am looking for a design with an overall philosophy and sophistication; not just a web 2.0 look alike.

I am inspired by nature's structures and see the underlying structure of the systems I work on. See comments for more info.


- One clean, organized, layered PSD file
- Vector graphics where possible/appropriate
- Macros for processing images if applicable

I will mention the designer in the footer. Great exposure.

More work to follow (websites, logos, user interfaces) if I love your work and your design style fits with my philosophy.

Target Audience

Junior and senior PHP, JavaScript and other developers, designers, tech entrepreneurs, business leaders and professionals all over the world (primarily Europe and North America).

Need a universal design that appeals to techies and business people.


I am looking for a LANDING PAGE DESIGN ONLY, BUT I need to be able to take the design and make it into a content page template by taking out sections and making minor adjustments (you need to take this into consideration or design a content page example if more extensive modification is required).

I am looking for something different, slightly out of the box and am not restricting possibilities by providing sites I like.

The design can rely on CSS/JavaScript features if need be for positioning etc...

I don't have a colour palette or specific expectations about colour but no black or dark theme.

The design must support a dynamic width with min and max values but will consider fixed width for landing page only.

I have posted:

- A mockup for the overall layout and content of the landing page. Use positioning, sizing and proportions as guideline but don't be restricted by it. I expect adjustments but they need to be reasoned or needed to fit the design.
- A text file containing the text blocks in the mockup so you don't have to retype.
- Relevant logos
