Wick43 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
CarComplaints.com needs new graphs & a few other pages redesigned!
Check out Wick43's Web page design contest…
We show car problem data using graphs to the general public.
Anything car, repair or mechanic related. Tires, tire tracks, wrenches, gears, oil, grease, dirt, rust etc. Don't go off the deep end with these though. These elements should be artistic & blend well with the site, nothing too obnoxious or distracting.
The primary goal of this project is an improved design for the problem graphs. These graphs are the most important aspect of CarComplaints.com & they define the site. I'm looking for a graph design that is very unique, textured with unique design elements, but without being too distracting. I don't want anything futuristic or super clean. I want textured & possibly "retro" themed. We are also looking to improve & possibly simplify the layout of each page, but keep the content elements essentially the same. I'd like the layout of each page reworked to use a wider area that matches our new website header (~1200px total). IMPORTANT: I'm not really looking for a new website header design. Redesigning the problem graphs & the page content listed below are the main focus of this contest. Hopefully that's clear. The pages are: Homepage http://www.carcomplaints.com/ - Simplify the long list of choices in the middle. The 5 main choices are "Current Defect Trends" ,"Worst Vehicles", "Best Vehicles" & "Search Complaints". Each of those could have a small "summary" area where we show some of the top choices/links with a "view more" link. - Redesign to use the wider area - Fit in better with website header Make & Model Overview: http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/ http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/Accord/ - Redesign vehicle sub-header (area just below the site header) - Redesign the "worst problems" section to fit in better - More cohesive look overall Vehicle & Category Overview (identical design elements) http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/Accord/2011/ http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/ - Redesign graphs -- THIS IS THE PRIMARY GOAL Problem Details http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/ - Redesign page, especially the top area with the statistics - Better layout/display of the individual owner comments
What to avoid
Things to avoid: Clipart. If you use any graphic elements to indicate car repair or mechanic-related aspects, they need to be done in an illustrated manner with texture & artistry. Probably no super-clean gradient "web 2.0" styles.
Please concentrate on redesigning the problem graphs in a unique & creative way. That's my main focus.
