Will Burrard-Lucas got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Design a Professional & Cool Photography Website
Check out Will Burrard-Lucas's Web page design contest…
I am a wildlife photographer. My website is: 1. A resource and community for enthusiast photographers. 2. A library of almost 2,000 photographs which I license to photo buyers.
- Neutral colours eg black/white/greys so that the theme compliments my images - Please include my logo in the design (see attachement) - Room for a 600px or 800px image with a sidebar wide enough for at least 250px x 250px advert - A focus on social networking links and newsletter sign-up - I want the website to have portal feel as I will be adding new sections such as contests and learning resources. Thus a well thought-out navigation layout is important.
1. Homepage (e.g. http://www.burrard-lucas.com/ ) - a brief welcome/introduction paragraph - highlight featured photography projects - newsletter sign-up and links to social media profiles - a portal for reaching other parts of the site eg contests, galleries, store etc... 2. Blog (e.g. http://blog.burrard-lucas.com/ ) - easy to read text - prominent social sharing options - links to other relevant/recommend related content.- sub-menu for categories/archives etc.. 3. Photo view page (e.g. http://b-l.me/2 ) - main focus is the image - social sharing option - attractive layout of additional information eg caption, location, tags etc.- all options on the reference page need to be kept eg, request quote, add to lightbox etc. If you have time, I would also be interested in seeing mock-ups of the following pages: http://www.burrard-lucas.com/gallery/portfolios/burrard-lucas_portfolio.html http://blog.burrard-lucas.com/2011/06/komodo-dragons/
What to avoid
Avoid: - A navigation layout that doesn't have room to grow in the future (I plan to add more sections to the site soon). - Vibrant colors that detract from or clash with the photos.
I want the theme to be clean, profesional, cool and masculin. I am known for my innovative approach to photography and I would like my website to convey/compliment this.

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Will Burrard-Lucas 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
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
