sb2000 got their new landing page design by running a design contest:
Design a Simple, Kickass Landing Page for www.GuardMyShit.com
Check out sb2000's Landing page design contest…
www.GuardMyShit.com is a web application that turns your webcam into a home security solution that detects motion and sends you SMS/MMS messages.
I'm open to any colors. The target audience is college students. Strong, bold, secure, trustworthy, solid, protective, resilient, punk, offbeat, rebel, simple, mobile, modern are all words that define the brand. I like simple, centered designs with content and elements that can be shifted/resized to fit mobile devices. I also would prefer not to look like "every other landing page" - though I know that doesn't mean much. Feel free to experiment. Something that draws the attention with vibrant colors, bold messaging, and that clearly directs the user to the two calls to action (with priority on the first) would be great.
Elements to include in the landing page
The current landing page shows the maximum content that I want to display. This is a sensitive sell because users are trusting the application to monitor their homes, their personal belongings, their lives. So I want to put some effort into building trust without overwhelming them with content. I think the current implementation involves too many clicks. So if you review the site, and then come up with a simpler way to establish trust while explaining and demonstrating the product, feel free to try whatever you think is best. The only requirements are: 1) Call to action 1: A button to test out their browser's compatibility + demo the motion detection if the browser is supported 2) Call to action 2: Signup form - username+password only 3) Establish trust with an explanation of the service and what it does / how it works with concise text. Though if you think my approach could be improved by modifying the above, I'm very open to recommendations. You're the professionals :) I just have a product and a rough idea of how I want to present it. Something along the lines of: "GuardMyShit turns your webcam into a motion-detecting, SMS-sending, picture-taking home security solution. You can control it from your mobile phone and view a live feed or historical account of all recorded events from any device, any time. For free. It uses super-modern browser technology, so click above/below to see if it works." And then when they click on the "test" button - it either confirms that the device works and displays the live feed from their webcam, or says "It looks like this browser doesn't work. The current version of Chrome is best. This device can be used as a remote-control, however." Feel free to rework the wording or structure as you see fit. Another important note: There are two "device roles" here. One is the "Guard" - the computer with the webcam that stays put and detects motion. Then there is the "Remote" - the device (phone or computer) that gets MMS (if phone) or email (otherwise) notifications with pictures of the triggering motion. If you can think of a way to illustrate this concept SIMPLY and with responsive UI considered, I think the users would be "wowed".
Simple is key. I do not have a logo but the idea is that it will be a simple monotone 2D shield. I understand this is not a logo design - feel free to use whatever you need as filler for the landing page. Mobile-friendliness is key as well. The design should be created with a mobile-first mindset - meaning it works well on both desktop and mobile devices via responsive UI/UX.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Landing page design starts at $349.
