One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - thislooksgreat
The job was a complex web app, including transactional and social design elements. Chris did a fantastic job; he was patient, responsive and quick. He also delivered excellent design work and we were super pleased with the entire process. I have never worked with him before, and I was pleasantly surprised at how professional and talented he is.

How startive started their web page design journey

Company name

Files.com

Overview

Files.com is a brand-new online file sharing site - so far we have a great name, and now a great logo (from a previous 99Designs contest), but we now need a great website design to go along with it.

We've launched other successful sites that have become hugely popular we're planning for the same here but we need your help making our site "pop", stick in people's memory & make them want to give the service a try. We have less than 15 seconds to make an impression and the website needs to be clean, clear and simple so people instantly know what we do, how to use it and want to give it a try.

Up for the challenge?

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Just about anyone who has run into the limitations of sending files via email. Mostly though our audience will be tech savvy individuals that regularly communicate via email and utilize it to transfer (large) files to clients, business partners, colleagues, friends & family.

Requirements

The trick with this project is making it unique and interesting while keeping it simple and obvious to use. It needs to be relevant to file sharing so people stumbling across the page will instantly get it.

The page to be designed is the main front-page, and it includes a form for users to upload files and contact details to send the files/attachments to their contacts - please see the current basic home page at http://www.files.com/ for the text, form fields and everything else required.

This website needs to quickly instill trust and professionalism (would you trust you private files to a backyard operation?) while also having a soft consumer edge so people know it's going to be an easy process and don't get frightened off become giving it a go.

There are many common themes you can pull in with "file sharing" so please try and make something relevant (i.e. a user should be able to look just at the site and instantly know what the site is about).

Logo:
The logo can be adjusted to fit better into a horizontal position if required.

Colors:
Please use the colors included in the attached logo as the base colors, but please feel free to use complementary highlight colors so it's not bland, it should "pop".

Please be aware it will be converted to CSS and text where possible so please keep in mind when designing the buttons etc.

Number of pages

1

Page descriptions

The home page - the most important page of the site!

Please see above for the overall requirements but for the home page the upload form needs to be large & the main focus of the page and should take up the majority of the real estate. Please see how it works at the moment - i.e. try it out @ http://www.files.com/ - to make sure your design can be used with the upload feature.
