This contest is for a Website template design (no code) for $500.00. Coding skills will have no impact on the decision making for the contest winner. All I care about is getting a really nice template design. The winner will also be offered more work in the future to maintain and enhance the website. If the winner of the contest has the skills to code, I will offer the winner another $250.00 to code the template after this contest is over. That is a total of $750.00 in potential prize money.

Koch Solutions, Inc. is a boutique consulting firm that specializes in providing quality and cost-effective professional IT consulting services. We cater mainly to large corporations and therefore the identity must look professional. But we dont want an identity that looks too "techie" or boring. We are looking for a contemporary professional look that is a little on the hip side.

The template will have 4 pages:
Home
Services
Careers
Contacts

These 4 pages make up the menu. When designing the menu, please keep in mind that there may be a couple more links added to the menu sometime in the future.

For the contest, I only need the Home page and Contact page for review. Initially, you can just submit a Home page; once the Home page is nailed down, you can submit the Contact page. The winner of the contest will design the Services and Careers pages. I imagine these pages to be only slight variations of the Home page.

You are the creative and talented designers, so I will not provide any specific requirements other than the template design should work well with our logo and be easy to navigate. The resolution can be 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. I wont tell you what to design but Ive provided some website designs that I like:

This is my second contest at Sitepoint. Here is a link to my first contest which was for an Identity package:

In my first contest, I gave feedback every 24 hours. I tried to be honest with my feedback and not waste anyones time. I also didnt tell anyone how to do their job. I plan to do the same in this contest.

Below is the link to the logo from my first contest that I would like to be used in the template.

Payment will be through Paypal. Other methods of payment may be possible.

All work submitted for this contest must be original. You may use photos from http://www.istockphoto.com which I will pay for if I like them. Upon payment of the winning design, all rights to the winning design will be transferred to Koch Solutions, Inc.

I reserve the right to end the contest early if a suitable design is submitted before the deadline. I also reserve the right to extend the contest for another week but I really want to finish this contest by November 17th.

Additional Info Added on Nov. 7, 2006:

As I have said before, I dont want to curtail your creativity by giving you too much direction. But some of you have been asking for a more focused description. I thought I had given enough detail in my description at the beginning of the contest. But many of you were submitting entries with elements that we did not even think about. The elements looked great in the design but they would not work for our business at this time. We had to decide what elements we could use and which ones we could not.

After much discussion, my partner and I agreed on what elements were needed to be on the Home page, what elements were optional, and what elements we did not want on the page at all. For example, weve seen many entries with a Latest News section and they look really great on the page. But we dont do anything that is really news-worthy. We dont run entire projects. We usually provide a special skill to a big project for a big company. If Koch Solutions, Inc. makes the news, it probably means I got arrested. Yikes!

Elements on the Home Page:

Necessary

o Logo only the size of the logo can be altered. Dont alter the colors.
o Tag line: Cost-Effective Professional IT Consulting Services
o 1st Heading: Welcome to Koch Solutions, Inc.

- Associated Text: "Koch Solutions, Inc. is a leading solutions provider that
specializes in providing quality and cost-effective professional IT consulting
services."

o 2nd Heading: Why choose Koch Solutions, Inc.?

- Associated Text: "Koch Solutions, Inc. offers a full range of IT consulting and
professional staffing services. We provide reliable and cost-effective solutions by

o A small portion of the Services page
o A small portion of the Careers page

Do Not Want

o Search box
o News section (Latest News, Latest Headlines, etc.)
o Customer Feedback section
o Investors section
o Clients section
o Partners section
o List of Job opportunities
o List of Services that we provide

About Images on the Home page:

I like any photo or illustration that conveys the right message about us and adds a little eye candy to the design of the page. My partner likes the man and the woman type of photo that conveys professionalism. He prefers close-up shots of the man and woman.
