How STORM SNOWBOARDS started their web page design journey
We are a startup company with two patents pending for a revolutionary new snowboard design. We need a cutting-edge, yet professional website design that will communicate the look and feel of who we are and what we will do - which is to introduce the next generation snowboard to the world. Once the website is completed, we will begin a multimedia marketing campaign to introduce our patent-pending design to the world snowboarding community, which will include press releases and direct marketing of our product to industry magazines, newspapers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, websites, and end users - all of whom will directed to our website. This is a design only contest. I will negotiate for coding after a design has been selected. Please read our company profile for more information about our product.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking for a splashy, yet professional website design that will appeal to everyone - not just the young. Our innovative board design was NOT created for the two million people that currently snowboard - it was created for the twenty million (or two hundred million) that do not. The website will have the following tabs: Home, About Us, Riders, Manufacturers, Investors. The home page content should be simple and uncluttered, and will contain a paragraph or two of text, and then showcase the following three key elements: a video; an animated 3D interactive flash model of our board design; and a pdf of our patents. All pictures must be royalty free. For logo info, please see our winning logo design on this site at: http://99designs.com/contests/9386. Note that the color of STORM in the logo has been changed to blue.
The home page design must be sleek, contemporary, fresh, and innovative - just like our product. We want the site to be appealing to everyone, but still want the, "Very cool" reaction!
Do not want anything too dark, too goth, or too grunge. Colors such as black and red are fine for accents, but must be used sparingly. Pictures are great (love them in fact!), but don't want their use to be too traditional or mundane.
