One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Allure
Allure did an excellent job. This design was originally submitted for a past contest I ran, and even though it wasn't the best fit for that project, I never forgot how great it was and hoped it would fit another project. Once that day came I reached out and asked if Allure would revamp the design for my current project and she agreed. Her completion time was impressive. I had the revamped logo within the hour. Allure also provided free advice regarding a basic graphic design issue I was having, which also speaks to her character. The provided documentation (hex colors, font name, etc.) were also well organized. I can highly recommend Allure's work and work ethic.

How webfuze started their web page design journey


Country-styled e-commerce web design with all the fixin's! We're looking for a designer who can deliver a little down home perspective and creative flair to our website design. It's got to be friendly and inviting since we're hoping to sell to garden folks who really enjoy growing vegetables. But don't overlook the underlying e-commerce element that will inspire visitor's to add products to their baskets.

Brand name

Clem's Tomato Ladders and Clem's Pepper Ladders

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Clem's Tomato Ladders is a small mom and pop shop sellingvegetable support systems to home vegetable gardeners. Our customers wouldprefer to spend more time in the yard and less in front of a computer so wefelt it was really important to let them see what they were getting as soon asthey landed on our home page and allow them to add things right to the shoppingcart immediately. It is also important that they see just how simple it is toset up our vegetable ladders as soon as they arrive on our page. We areplanning on placing a large 330x330px Flash movie on the home page (look forthis contest shortly on 99 designs).
We also want to highlight that we have a resources page onthe website that offers up great information on how to grow really greattomatoes and other vegetables. So we figured a nice looking display-like ad insteadof a simple button or link might be a better approach to draw attention to thisinner page.
Overall, it is important to us that we maintain our momand pop character, yet try to look professional and respectful to ourcustomers. So, the farmer logo (that we need help with - see details below)should be well positioned and branded accordingly, but we don’t want to getgimmicky with it or come across amateurish or trite.


Design Summary & Requirements:
- Provide final website layout in layered PSD file (CS2compatibility); ideally fonts are standard system fonts found on both PC andMac.
- Provide a simple logo based on our "farmer"clipart (see download below) in print quality editable Illustrator or Freehandfile; preferably a color and black & white version. Clipart must be part oflogo, but can be manipulated as desired. Adding some peppers into the basketwould be very ideal. Also add text, Clem's Tomato Ladders, to the logo mark,while making sure font remains editable.
- Design website based on a fixed 980px wide page. Theme shouldbe down home and folksy (see farmer clipart below), country, farm-like;wholesome and clean, open and airy; easy to navigate, focus on products. Wehave provided a wireframe (see download below) for general ideas of content andplacement, however note this is only for suggested placement and we are open toyour ideas.
- Colors: the site should be open and airy, so probably alot of white, but a little light yellow/oranges wouldn't hurt to drive homewarmth. Highlight colors probably should be red and green since that's what youfind with tomatoes and their vines.
