How HollandJack started their web page design journey
Yes you have landed on a UNIQUE PROJECT found no where else on 99designs or the internet. It is YOUR chance to add this to your portfolio and show your creativity to the world.
My name is Jack and I am partner in a small coffeeshop in Amsterdam the Netherlands. As most of you know smoking the Dutch Buddha, Mary Jane, Ganja, Chronic, Reefer, Cheeba or as we just call it here: Weed and Hasj is perfectly legal in Holland. Together they are called Cannabis.
As we run a business we are always thinking of ways to attract more customers. That is why we are now in the process of setting up a great website to attract more customers and have our coffeeshop "El Guapo" become more known locally as well as amongst tourists.
To set this up we have hired a coder and an online marketing specialist who will help us out with the technical details of the site and its marketing. Not a lot of Dutch coffeeshops have a website so we think we'll have a real advantage here.
You guessed it we are looking for your help in the design department. This design contest is for the homepage AND a sub page with the Cannabis menu.
Please read the full brief for more information and download the pictures!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
- This contest is to design both the homepage as well as a sub-page thatholds the cannabis menu. This means you will need to design both a homepage and a sub page with the weed/hasj menu (which are generally piecesof art).
