"kusuma" is the name for an online art search service.
As art I mean paintings, sculptures or similar hand made objects by amateur or semi-pro artists.
Visitors will be able to search for art objects and contact the artist to buy those.
The homepage, displaying the logo, the search field and some options
will be held simple. The logo will be the central eye-catcher and positioned centered in the header. The
background will be white. It will be quite similar to the classic google search page in the beginning.
Yes, such a service exists already, but I have some improvments in mind, which will make the page interesting.
"kusuma" is a kind of web 2.0 buzzword made of the first two letters of the german words "kunst such maschine". In english this simly means "art search engine".
By sheer chance the service will be hosted on Google App Engine, since it brings all the functionallies required.
This free online service will be only available in germany. Because of this I can also only use paypal for paying you. Sorry.
The winning artist will be mentioned in the kusuma credits and linked from kusuma to 99designs and their personal homepage as they like.
All finalists will receive the possibility to do some promotion on kusuma and a chance for the second prize of 55$, which will be awarded by the people visiting kusuma, by using a poll.
Details will follow after the contest via personal message.
