We currently have a winning ad that looks like a news story - which may not look pretty, but it gets the most sales!
I'm looking for a new banner design that will beat the control. I'm also looking to create several more banner ads to test in the future, but I will work with the winning designer after this contest is over to negotiate future work.
Winning control is attached. Use of the headline "1 Weird Spice that Cures Diabetes" is recommended.
I attached a few other examples of banners that are working well online...
My hope is to find someone who has experience designing WINNING banner ads that get results (looking pretty doesn't matter as much as getting sales in my world...but both would be nice :)
We're all about split-testing, but we can't split test banner ads until we choose a winner... so I'm going to have to go with my intuition to pick a winner - and any communication you have with your designs can help (past experience, stats, etc).
