Sensational Fly is a new web shop committed to provide to the avid fly tyer the best fly-tying materials and supplies available on the market.
The design we are searching for must be elegant, somehow old-fashioned and must incorporate the Sensational Fly logo you find here: http://www.sensationalfly.com/logo.png (or here for an horizontal version: http://www.sensationalfly.com/logo2.png)
We dont like heavy graphic, however a discrete use of images, icons, vector graphics, web 2.0 gradients, rounded corner boxes or whatever else is welcome. We have a small budget to buy graphic elements, so look around and fell free to use watermarked elements for your design. In the event you win, we will substitute them buying the original ones.
Main text must be very readable and fonts must be standard fonts, since the site will be coded with table-less css and xhtml. Dont be afraid to use white in the template.
The design is targeted for a min resolution of 1024x768.
Two pages are required. We require a template COMPULSORY developed with Photoshop (.psd) or Fireworks (.png). The template must be layered and editable.
Its critical that the work be original and your own creation. Please conduct your due diligence as we would too. The winner will need to transfer all ownership rights to us and will not have any claim after submission. However you can use it for your own portfolio. We reserve the right to end the contest without a winner if no winning entry can be decided upon.
