Jared Chung got their new web page design by running a design contest:
CareerVillage needs a new website design
Check out Jared Chung's Web page design contest…
Organization overview We're a non-profit organization that helps high school students living in low-income communities get career and college advice so they can make great decisions about their future! Our website is one of the ways our students get career advice. On our website students ask career and college questions, to which our mentors respond with advice. Audience Overview There are two common profiles that use CareerVillage. One is the high school student. Our students want to get advice they can trust, and want to know that there are adults out there who care about their success. The second type of user are mentors. They're young professionals, recent retirees, and stay at home parents. They need to be able to give their advice quickly and efficiently, and want to feel good about their contribution to the kids.
Simple, modern, clean. A feel-good experience. Please look at the examples included in the website inspiration section.
There are two pages that we're looking for help with now: The home page and the question page. We've done a lot of work to build a general framework that bridges the two use cases we see on the site, but we need design help to make sure the look, feel and tone of our site can also bridge the two use cases. We think the winning design will have a modern, simple and clear look/feel/tone. We need a design skin that can be converted to CSS so that our developers can apply that to the functional prototype we have built. A completed design will include changes to (1) Colors, (2) Typography, and (3) design elements on the pages. We've focused on building the core functionality of our site, so our design has been based primarily on Twitter Bootstrap. As a result, our site works well but lacks that well-loved look that we are hoping the winning design will help us show. We want to see you working with color to improve the feel of the site and make it pop more. If you have improvements to typography on our site, please ensure that you limit yourself to using Google webfonts, and avoid having too many font variants, which could affect pageload performance. For improving design elements, we want you to do what you do best: give the page some love. We have attached screenshots of the two pages we're looking for design help with. Here is a fuller description of the purpose of each of these two important pages: Question list page The question list page is the page where a user is directed to browse or search for advice (if a student) or find a question to answer (if a mentor). Question detail page The question detail page is dedicated to a specific question posed by a student, and all of the answers that have been provided by mentors. After each answer, there is also some space for discussion about that answer (where students say thank you or ask for clarification). On this page we want mentors to either post an answer to the question, or refer the question to a friend (if they don't think they know the answer, but they know someone else who does). We're looking to depart from the current design, so do not use that as what we're looking for. (A special note about http://www.careervillage.org: We do not want to use this design at all, and you should not base any of your work off what you see at http://www.careervillage.org. We're making a dramatic departure from that look and feel. We do *NOT* want you to work on any pages you see there. Please focus ONLY on the two pages we've added as screenshots in the attachments.)
What to avoid
- Please follow the layout in the attached mockup. We've refined this layout based on testing with users. We don't want you to make changes to the placement of major elements, although some minor changes may be possible within major elements. - Do not use any stock templates or images. - We're planning on building this to be fully responsive, so please keep that in mind. We're also planning on using the full width of the viewport. - Please avoid any extremely large fonts that will result in long, delayed pageload times. We encourage you to limit yourself to Google webfonts, and to avoid too many variants of each font to improve pageload times.
Yes! Have some fun with it so that your enthusiasm shows through in your output! Students are going to love the work you do, and mentors are going to feel great after using the site you design :)

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Jared Chung collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
