One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - webknix
Great job on a simple, clean, yet stunning design, and the designer was so good to work with. He asked good questions to clarify our intent before submitting any designs, and he asked good questions all along the way to make sure he was going in the direction we wanted. He also took input from our team really well, making it in some ways a joint design experience. It was so obvious he was the right one for us that we quickly eliminated all other designers so we could focus our work with him. No problems with this designer - we would definitely work with him again.

How JSZao started their web page design journey

Summary

We're developing a website for one of the largest cooking sites on the internet, and we want your help! We're looking for several mockups, intensely professional, minimalist, simple.

Company name

What'sCookingAmerica.net

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

We are re-designing this website from the ground-up. Some of it's competitors include myrecipes.com, allrecipes.com, epicurious.com, http://www.recipezaar.com/. These are the competitors that we need to crush :) Layout should be liquid, elastic...we're looking at users with 800x600 and 2300x1900, so flexibility is important. Each PSD mockup should have a home page 'look', 'article page', recipe page, a 'secondary content' page, search/results page, open to others if you have thoughts. Please review the website for an idea of the content involved and the site map, etc.  When desigining, please keep the current AdSense ads in mind with the design...also note, we have no use for banner ads in the design. We have very well-paying clients, so for the right designer, we can be an extremely profitable client.  We do not need help in programming/coding, just the design of the site.  To re-emphasize, this site will most likely be one of your most visible portfolio pieces, as this site gets tens of millions of pageviews every year.

UPDATE:

To clarify, as some have asked, we ARE planning on choosing a winner.  That will be dependant upon client approval.  Once the contest has less than 24 hours left, we will narrow the field down to the top 8 that we like.  At that point, we will send the mockups from the top 8 to the client.  If they like none of them, we'll extend the contest, adding their critiques to the contest.  If they like one with no modification requests, we'll award the prize to that winner, if they like a few with modification requests, we will PM those designers.  To emphasize, all designers retain full rights to their design unless we pay them for it, we only retain rights to the winning design as chosen by the client.

UPDATE #2

Some have asked if the logo can be enhanced or re-designed.  We're not currently looking for it to be re-designed, but feel free to enhance or sharpen it as you see fit for your submission.  While appreciated, it is not the most important aspect of the contest.

Wants

- Color scheme consistent with current logo.  Please download current logo from site as reference.
- Minimalist, simple design. Not to be confused with boring, unprofessional, or lackluster. - Note, current site is minimalist, as is http://www.book-by-its-cover.com/ - Worlds apart ;)
- The rest is up to you! Feel free, be creative, and enjoy having a portfolio piece that reaches millions, if you win.

Don't want

- No templates
- No over-kill designs
- No rip-offs
