We require an uncoded template using an existing logo.
Design should be clean and fast loading when coded up.
Prize of $500 + $250 for coding.
logo at http://www.bassabids.com
Desired Color Scheme:
Accepted File Formats:
Bassabids is a site that will run auctions in which the winner will be the lowest unique bid.
The logo is located at the bassabids site.
BTW Bassa means low in Italian.
The bids on the auctions will be done through SMS messages on a cell/mobile phone, or for people in different countries where SMS isn't setup for bassabids through the site using PayPal. To make a bid using a mobile phone you simply text "ipod 10" to 606060 (this is not our number) to place a bid of 10 cents for the ipod on auction.
The goods to be auctioned will be thing likes cars (mini cooper or similar), Plasma TV's, Hifi's and Ipods.
The auctions will run continuously, i.e. once a winner is announced a new auction is created.
I would like the home page to have a listing of auctions which then link on to more detail. Each auction listing on the front page should have a small photo, number of bids received, number required before a winner is announced, or the date when the auction is over. Each of these should also click through to a page with larger photos, product detail and auction details.
I would like the design to be clean and focused, i.e. people are there to drool over products so they will bid on auctions not click on adwords or anything like that.
Usability will play a big part in deciding the winner, so no 7pt. text etc.. Also please keep in mind that this site will be also be rebranded, so keep the functional parts, i.e. the listings, etc., simple and colour neutral.
Menu items are:
How to Play
Things like Terms & Condition's, Affiliates, etc. should be at the bottom of the page.
The prize is $500, then another $250 to code it, but winning the design does not mean you will get the template coding job as well. I may make the coding another competition for ease of modification, size and rendering speed.
In case it matters for the design, the site must be coded totally in CSS/XHTML, along google website building guidelines.
