How rodiggedy started their web page design journey

Brand name


We need a brilliant designer to help us give a bump to small local businesses. Bring an impressive design and we will shower you with more work.

And I do mean A LOT!

--Inner pages, logo, business cards, stationary, you name it! All additional design work for the site will go to the winner of this contest.

Okay, here's how the site works:
1) Every day we will send you an email with a sweet sale from a business in your city.

2) You click to find out more and buy.

3) You then tell your friends on twitter, facebook, however. If three of your friends also buy the deal, you get it for free!

That's it! Simple. Easy.

These deals are from local restaurants, retailers, spas, and more. We allow our visitors to:

* Try new things without going broke
* Support local businesses
* Spend time with friends and family while taking advantage of group rates

The design will be
**Clean, with a cool twist.
**Sophisticated and fun
**Design elements that subtly invoke a metropolitan city feel.

Proven Models:


Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

User Base:
Young social media crowd who live in big urban communities. Age 18 to 45.

Consumer Demographics:
Gender: Approx. 65% Women and 35% Men

Our consumer audience is made up of females and males who spend time on social networking websites and tend to live in large metropolitan areas. These urbanites live healthy social lives, frequently go out on weekends, and routinely maintain their outward appearance at spas/salons, etc.

Example websites,

Specific Design Elements We Like:

1. We like the horizontal bar on with maybe something like: Grab Your Deal | Tell Your Friends | Enjoy

We also like the their footer.

2. Small text under each deal indicating that getting 3 friends to buy will lead to getting the deal free. We like the idea of placing this text under each deal, but feel free to be creative with where you place the text.
3. A small area with a blurb on how to get your business featured, who we are, and why we do this.

Thx, look forward to chatting with you in the days to come.

Other sites:…-en-Balade (great footer) (great symmetry and an in-your-face design that tells you what the site is about as soon as you get there. I also like the large box of images that hits you as soon as you get to the site.)

I like the idea of some type of background texture, but it's not necessary, it could be a white background as well. I'll defer to your vision) (fairly cool.) (creative) (fun elements. I really like the in-your-face horizontal bar that tells you what the site is about as soon as you get there.) (I like this site alot! Their big in your face header that lets you know what the site is about as soon as you get there, use of color, the little box sections...very cool.).

but all in all, I think really nails it. This is the true example site.

The other sites are for a bit of inspiration. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
