Michael Snoyman got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Software development learning center website for FP Complete
Check out Michael Snoyman's Web page design contest…
We are providing a site targeted at software developers. The site will offer web-based tools for both learning the Haskell programming language and associated libraries, and for developing software. Initially, our focus is on the learning aspect, and will contain interactive tutorials.
* Need some location (e.g., top-bar) to display login information/status. In other words, a status such as "You are logged in as email@example.com. Logout" or "Not logged in. Logout" * The page should match our existing logo. You can see our current homepage at fpcomplete.com, though we have no ties to the current homepage design. (Note: this project is for creating a separate site, though we will likely be redesigning that site as well.) * The majority of users to our site should be using modern browsers. As such, taking advantage of newer CSS features (e.g., text shadows, gradients) is perfectly acceptable. However, we still want to cater to users of older browsers, without JS hacks. Therefore, the site should still look presentable without those CSS features available (a.k.a., design with graceful degradation in mind). * We do want a decent mobile experience as well, via media queries. The site should be designed in such a way to make a mobile optimization look similar to the desktop site. A mobile design is not a requirement for this part of the project, though will likely be a feature we wish to add in the near future. About our company/brand: * Simplicity and a focus on productivity. We have a lot of information to convey to the user, who is typically a busy professional. * Neutrality. Our customers are creative people looking to make their own creative works, not to be entertained by a taste-specific style of our own. * Our brand stands for productivity, reliability/accuracy, modern technology, and to some degree performance/speed. Our customers will agree with these values and aesthetics. * Software developers. We might do well to remind users of other respected professional sites & tools, most notably GitHub, Heroku, Microsoft Visual Studio, MSDN. However, other than GitHub we would argue that these designs are a bit confusing at times. * Ease of entry. Our user is an "expert beginner," that is, an expert at programming but a beginner at our specific technology. So we want to be unintimidating yet suggest there is plenty of power under the hood, fairly easy to learn and access. * Information/analysis. Our user wants to jump right in and be productive, yet be able to access a rich body of technical info. Think of a stock trading site: "Buy 100 shares" is easy, but an expert can also request a complex analytic graph.
1. Homepage describing the purpose of our site. Need space for a few different columns of prose. 2. Signin page. We will offer multiple authentication methods: email/password on the site, Mozilla Persona, and possibly others (e.g., signin-via-Google). 3. Splash page to sign up for beta trial. Users will need to first log in, and then be given information about how our beta trial is working. Signing up should just be the click of a button. 4. Page listing available training courses. Each course will be a title with a short description. 5. Page for individual training courses. This pages will consist almost entirely of text and code; they can be styled like a typical blog post. If it can be worked nicely into the design, a slot for a table of contents would be convenient.
We are hoping to find a designer to create an initial template for our site, and continue working with us on a consulting basis going forward as new requirements come up. As such, we are looking for a designer with the following skills: * Strong ability to communicate in English. * Experience with mobile: Android phone, iPhone, and tablets * Cross-browser and cross-OS experience * Experience designing complex pages, and ideally even complex sites, from scratch. * Ability to work with a client that's 100% remote. Because we are geographically spread out, you probably won't meet us in person. * HTML and CSS
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.
Michael Snoyman collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
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.
