Welcome! This is the second stage of our website development. We previously ran a very competitive and successful contest for a logo design, and now wish to incorporate it into a web page. We provide frequent and detailed feedback to all designers, and don't ever wish to waste anyone's creative skills or time.
Footballau (http://www.footballau.com)is a place holder for an Australian based news website that will containarticles, photos, blogs, results/tables/fixtures relating to both Australianand international football (soccer for those who might be confused). The sitecontent is to be generated by a team of passionate journalists that wish topresent a balance between facts and their own opinions and thoughts. The ideafor the site emerged from disappointment within most existing sites in that thecontent is poorly presented (graphically) and generally a random collection ofunrelated and poached articles/content.
Footballau wishes to create a clean, uncluttered,fresh website that incorporates our newly selected logo and color scheme.
This is our current poor excuse of a website:
Here is the logo that we selected - please note that you can crop the image, blend it into a banner, etc if you like.)
** Although, we plan to make the green darker and include a dark orange too, so please consider this in your design ***
Here are some links to other sites that we like:
** We will not accept direct copies of these sites. There are merely presented as examples of what we like.
- Single page website
- Green/Darker Green/Orange/Dark Orange/Gray Color Scheme
- Clean, uncluttered (our content will do that!), professional
- Incorporate new logo
- 'Floating' center content panel about 900px wide (not a full width style)

- Smaller tabs for table information
- Professional looking fonts
- Complementary color scheme (to our logo)
- PSD file at the end of the competition
