Elie Hassenfeld got their new web page design by running a design contest:
GiveWell - charity review site needs redesign
Check out Elie Hassenfeld's Web page design contest…
GiveWell is a nonprofit aimed at helping people accomplish as much good as possible with their donations. We find outstanding charities and publish the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give. Our current website is at www.givewell.net. We want to create a new look that is clean, readable, and professional (and not flashy or "slick"). Our website is about cutting through the emotional manipulation of traditional fundraising, and getting people substantive facts and analysis so they can accomplish real, tangible good. We run Drupal and are looking for a new theme for the existing content. The full prize is for designs of 2 pages. Mockups should include a new version of: 1. The homepage at www.givewell.net 2. One page that includes the primary elements we use in our website (left navigation menu, "charity response box" that we provide on our review pages, table of contents, etc.) Sample at http://www.givewell.net/node/7 Please start by just creating the homepage. During the contest, we’ll provide feedback, and if we like what you’ve done with the homepage, you can submit your design for the other page by the deadline. We don’t want you to do any unnecessary work.
Individual donors seeking to accomplish more with their charitable donation. Our users tend to be younger (25-40), educated, and earn enough to give $100-$100,000 to charity each year.
Examples of sites that we like the look and feel of: http://www.brookings.edu/ http://carbonite.com/ http://www.rwjf.org/ http://www.att.com/ http://www.gatesfoundation.org/ http://www.31three.com/ http://www.mint.com/ http://www.woothemes.com/ Note: • We are open to the idea of making the site more colorful and engaging via the use of images, but we don't want to look like a traditional charity site with emotionally manipulative pictures of people in need. We want our site to communicate that we are getting serious information to serious people. • We aren’t partial to any color, but we would prefer to retain the purple in the current logo. See the upper left-hand corner of www.givewell.net Homepage We’re open to different approaches to this page: (A) keeping the layout basically as is but improving the look, (B) rearranging the primary items (e.g., Top charities bubble, Key research findings, Tagline and blurb, email list signup) on the page, or (C) adding new items/images to the page. We think the prime contenders for addition to the homepage are either our list of top charities (currently at http://www.givewell.net/top-charities) or an image. Interior page This page, at http://www.givewell.net/node/7 , is a charity review page. We need designs for: • A table of contents • Left-hand menu • Charity response box – see for example http://givewell.net/node/11 • Headings • Data table
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at $599.

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.
Elie Hassenfeld 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.
