These guys were GREAT to work with during the entire contest. First they gave us several great designs to narrow down what we wanted. Then they took our feedback very well to refine the designs that we liked. They messaged us constantly which helped keep the process going. Their theme design is very modern, functional and shows a clear knowledge of web UI and what's needed to implement the design. I definitely recommend them!
Mark was very accomodating with our request for changes, and took time to study our business to ensure the design is really reflecting our core business. Thanks for a job well done Mark.

Extremely talented and very professional. I've worked with Microsoft and Toptal designers in the past and this group was more talented.
I have really enjoyed working with DezignLAB, his designs were great and was always happy to keep making amendments in order to to give us the best designs possible. I will look to work with him in the future.
- MH Designs
MH is very patient and provided very refine design draft before go through all of the process to make sure that the design is moving towards the right direction. He's very dedicative to this work and I like the result of the design very much. I'm definitely going to work with him again.
How Erwolf started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is primarily a B2B site. It doesn't get a lot of traffic but does need to have an extremely high conversation rate. The company creates web-based tech solutions for use in the Direct Sales industry. They need to represent themselves as technologically advanced, professionally competent and the best in their field. I know this probably sounds all too common, but it's true. They're selling $30-100,000 custom software solutions (Customer Relationship Management or CRM) directly to industry higher-ups that will then distribute it down their chain. This is NOT for big corporations or small business owners, but Direct Sales masters and companies.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We're looking for submissions that convey class, prestige and professionalism though clean design while sticking (mostly) with industry standard layout. This is not an artsy, childish, fun loving site. We need a look that business prospects view and instantly feel like they can trust the abilities of our company.
We need two pages in the design. A HOME page and a DETAILS page.
HOME - Logo in the upper left. Navigation centered or right aligned. Search bar in the upper right or sidebar. Slider area under the navigation. We like having 3 or 6 "highlights" with custom icons or pictures and a sentence of information. Then a little page content displaying below that. The footer will have 3 or 4 widgets.
DETAILS - For every subsequent page on the site. Repeat the logo and navigation placement. The sidebar can go left or right side (we're thinking right). The body is the main part. Not sure if we want a watermark on the body area or a frame or something else.
What to avoid
Too much clutter or poor attempts to artistic. It's about clean, simple, polished, perfect design.
Note the colors in the logo. Attached also is the PSD file for the premium theme that we want to work with.
The website is built on an updated WordPress platform using premium themes from Themify.me. We'd like the design to stay close to the theme framework in most cases. Attached you'll find the PSD files from the company. Please use them as a reference for the layout.
We'd like PSD files for both of the pages. And either PSD or AI (preferably AI) files with the custom icons and buttons that you design for the site.
The winner may have the opportunity to help us design our letterhead, business card and a few other collateral pieces.
