erica d1 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Re-design the Apache Friends / XAMPP Website - reach millions of web developers and designers !
Check out erica d1's Web page design contest…
Apache Friends is the home of XAMPP, the most popular open source, ready-to-run *AMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl) development environment. It offers free installers for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X and is widely used by both developers and designers to create local development environments.
We really would just like to see a more modern, clean design that makes it easy for people to understand what we do and why they might want to use XAMPP. We prefer flat design, a white background and would like to use the following colors: blue: #2a5d84 green: #65a603 red: #bc1300 dark grey (footer): #333333 body text: #555555 We'd like to implement the design using a front-end framework such as Bootstrap or Foundation. So designs need support such an implementation (albeit with customizations etc.). The design needs to keep in mind that the coded website will need to be responsive and work in desktop and mobile environments.
Our primary goal with this re-design is to bring the most important content to the homepage and to refresh the site. Note that there will be several more pages that will need to be done and we will contract those after the designer is chosen via the 99Designs contest. For the contest, we would just like re-designs of the home page and the XAMPP page. For the home page, we want to include: - An explanation of what the project is - Links to download the most recent version - a list of benefits for why you might want to use the project - a place for a banner to make announcements (new releases, special offers, etc) - (potentially) a list of the currently bundled components and versions - (potentially) a list of recent posts from the discussion board For the XAMPP page: We will use this page to give a more in-depth explanation of the project and will probably keep the content roughly the same. The current XAMPP page can be found here http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
What to avoid
Overly complicated designs that would be difficult to implement with a popular CMS (such as Drupal or WordPress). We'd also like to avoid any design elements that would slow down the loading time (huge graphics, etc) and do not want a very dark background.
If this goes well, there will be a lot more design work that could potentially come with it. Also, your work will be seen by millions of web developers and designers!
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.
erica d1 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.
