Special contest: First Prize: $305, Second Prize: $100!
We just ran a contest for a new logo design here on 99designs and we were very happy with the results.
Now, we’re running a contest for a new site design to go with our new logo! We will be awarding the stated reward to the winner, and will be awarding a $100 second place prize as well.
FindAssurance.com is a site that helps users request quotes for different types of insurance.
We want a simple, clean design that projects professionalism.
The site's design should help users feel comfortable filling out a form providing personal information in order to be contacted by an insurance salesperson.
We'd like a single common "look and feel," including click navigation (links, menu, tabs, etc.) that we can carry across different page types throughout our site.
We require two sample pages, a home page, which might include a bit of content, a few testimonials, and both click navigation and a “widget” to get to the form pages. The “widget” is a small form with a dropdown for insurance type, a zip code field, and a “Get Quote” button. It should be a very prominent element on the overall page. Take a look at one of the leading sites in this industry segment, http://www.netquote.com. It exhibits similar functionality, including an example of a "widget."
Take a look at our existing site, https://www.findassurance.com. The logo in the upper left is a required component of the new design. Only small changes including color can be made to the logo. Any of the existing forms can be used for the sample form page. Also note the [required] Verisign and TrustE icons/logos at the top, right of our site. The site is composed of just the form pages, all essentially the same, but for 5 different insurance types. We just need a single model page as an example. The form can be grabbed and changed to give it the look and feel you are designing.
Don't be afraid to ask any questions, either in comments or via a private message here.
P.S. We are offering a FIRST PRIZE *and* a SECOND PRIZE ($100) for this contest!
