How Kristen L Holden started their custom wordpress themes journey

Company name

99designs

Overview

99designs is the worlds largest crowdsourced graphic design marketplace, with thousands of contests being launched each and every month. Surely we don't need to tell you this, given the fact that you are an existing 99designs user though! :)

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

Small business owners, graphic designers and press contacts. The blog will have more than one purpose and will be used within various sections of the site for a few different reasons.

Requirements

The new blog will continue to feature all of the same content as the old blog located at: http://blog.99designs.com/, however the main difference will be that the new blog is to be located within the current 99designs.com layout.

This will mean that it will seamlessly integrate within the existing site header and footer elements (See attached footer.png and header.png files) and the overall goal is to bring all of the content contained within the blog, into the regular framework of the site and make the sites main call to actions more accessible to users that are reading blog content.

We require design layouts for each specific wordpress page to be included in your submission, these pages are:

Blog Homepage
Individual Post Page

The overall layout of the blog should feature a right aligned main blog navigation panel which has the following sections:

Categories
Links
Pages
Recent Posts
Twitter Updates
Archives
Newsletter Subscription
Social Icons

You can view all of these elements live at the current blog: http://blog.99designs.com/

Overall, the design should follow our branding guidelines and you can gain access to logo files and other material through our branding page: http://99designs.com/branding - Also on this page, there are some styles which i feel suit the new design well (Styleexample.png) the shadow effects and simplicity works well.
