How Codeable LLC started their web page design journey

Company name

Codeable

Overview

This website is for a software start-up called Codeable. The focus of the company is on building fun and useful iPhone applications, as well as providing custom iPhone development services. The site will be launching along with an upcoming iPhone app which allows users to find concerts in their area. As such, the website should provide information about this new app, as well as market the company as a custom iPhone development shop.

NO CODING REQUIRED! Only require PSD of logo and website!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The design should appeal to iPhone users who are interested in purchasing an app, as well someone looking for an outside shop to develop a custom iPhone app for them.

The logo design should be simple and outside-the-norm. Use of contrasting colors is a plus.

Requirements

Hi everyone! I'm looking for a website design that is styled heavily on 50s/60s design elements. As you might imagine, this wouldn't fit the typical "Web 2.0" cookie-cutter mold. This means no gradients, rounded buttons, and badges. Sorry! What I'm really looking for is creative use of colors and design elements influenced by the following:

50s/60s Paperback Book Covers - Contrasting (sometimes clashing) colors, interesting sans-serif typefaces

http://images.google.com/images?hl=…book+cover

Pop Art - Striking colors, simple patterns

The site should include links to a Blog and Contact page, as well as a link to purchase the iPhone app on the App Store. All other ad-copy can be place holders.

Please also include a section containing screenshots of the app! These can be thumbnails, as I will probably have some javascript similar to 99designs which will display a larger screenshot when hovering over the thumbnail.

My hope is that the design can reflect a sense of style without being too serious about itself!

I'm looking forward to seeing what sorts of creative designs everyone comes up with! I will be actively providing feedback throughout the contest so please feel free to reach out.

UPDATE: I have added an attachment containing ad-copy that I would like integrated into the design. Again, don't feel like you have to use all the information in the attached file. The must-haves are the navigation links, link to purchase the app, and features list of the app.

UPDATE 2:
Here are some reference websites:

http://www.bestialdesign.com/ - I like the color scheme and the type face on this design. I do not like that it is left-justified. I'd rather the content section be centered on the page.

http://acrossamerica.robweychert.com/ - I like the contrasting red white and blue in this design. However my website doesn't require a right or left nav, just a header with nav links and a main body section.

http://www.booreiland.nl/ - I like the contrasting colors and patterned background. I would rather have a design that is centered rather than left-justified.

http://jussioksanen.com/ - I like the multi-colored background in this design.
