One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - GDT Design
To the next lucky website contest holder, Consider yourself fortunate if GDT Design chooses to participate in your design contest. I cannot say enough about GDT Design. He won an ultra competitive website challenge with SIX amazing and super creative finalists. I gave GDT copious, detailed notes, and he followed them to the letter, while continuing to produce elegant, crisp designs. He has no ego--meaning, he eagerly accepts feedback and corrections, and had no problem adapting his creative to fit my business needs. A desirable trait in such a talented person! I have very high standards, and GDT met or exceeded them all. GDT did a fantastic job of utilizing my logo elements and weaved them intricately throughout all the pages of my website design challenge. He also created a strong stylized aesthetic which really added character to my website. During the design process, it was clear that he did a good job reading the design brief and understood what was required of him; this meant that his initial designs were of high quality. After the job was done (he was already declared the winner of the contest), when he found out I could not afford one of the images he used, he gladly found and replaced the image with a more reasonable alternative. GDT is a nice guy, a talented artist, and a true design partner. I look forward to working with him in the future. Sincerely, Bernard Lee

I’m looking to have a homepage and header designed for the site http://www.namecake.com
It is currently a domain selling site, but this is ALL changing.
What I’m looking to do is replace the homepage with a news aggregation service for Domains, SEO and Internet Marketing.

I do quite like the logo – but if you have any ideas I’m open to seeing them.
I would be looking for the current slogan to change to:
News Slices for Domains, SEO and Internet Marketing

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - With your designs - there is no need to mention the Namecake.com Brokerage service - this Front Page is JUST about the NEWS AGGREGATION Service - not about our domain business.
The design must be classy, easy to read, professional and (not to busy)

The areas the aggregation service will follow are:

Domain Names
SEO / SEM / Internet Marketing
Affiliate News / Internet Business

As i mentioned above please see the attachment for the full spec (Don't worry it's not too long.)
