We're looking for a fresh, more modern look, something which isn't based around WHMCS, we're ready to do our new back end in-house, however we need a new user interface for our site, something easily expandable with plenty of customisation.
We're looking for something that appeals to professionals and also to the casual and the young users without being distasteful.
We will unfortunately require a new logo to go with this, as Mojang have recently trademarked the creeper face we currently use.
We have permission from Sphax(PureBDCraft) to use his graphics in any design needed for showcasing our products
More information is available on request, we're hoping to find a designer for repeat work, with good initiative as, unfortunately our full time staff, me included, are not very creative, I'm sure you've all seen "coder graphics" before :)
Clarification; I will be leaving it so everyone has equal chance (As a contest), I'm not going to limit my chances of something amazing coming from the talented people on here, my hope is whoever wins this we'll keep on some kind of retainer for our future designs, we have 3 other brands which we want to refresh their sites and logos, then we have control panels and similar, so we expect a mockup here, once accepted changed into a design, and we will be contacting you for our other brands (ColoBurst and a few others), and our control panel etc.
WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO DESIGN THE WHOLE SITE BEFORE BEING CHOSEN AS A WINNER, HOWEVER ONCE YOUR DESIGN IS CHOSEN, WE WILL EXPECT A SITE TO BE CREATED FROM THE CONCEPT SHOWN.
(Note; I originally thought freelancer only allowed [url removed, login to view] as a max prize! Just noticed I don't have to use their slider :$)
I'd like to add, nothing is expected from the concept, it doesn't have to be a working site, I want to see an image with the kind of design you'd make for us, that is all, then I'll accept yours and talk to you about an actual contract for the work.
It's come to my attention a lot of people are completely unable to read the big block of caps above that makes it clear, or any of the rest of the contest which says no back end is needed at all, and that we only want 3 pages in essence...
I'd also like to note, if I had the time, I'd just shop around normally, but the nice people from Mojang's solicitors have somewhat given us a deadline and I'm in the middle of overseeing a data centre build, it's not ideal, but I need the right designer.
This is the last attempt I try at clarifying what we want before I give up on [url removed, login to view]
DO NOT SPEND TOO MUCH TIME, JUST SHOW ME WHAT YOU WOULD DO FOR US THAT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE GENERIC TEMPLATES WE NORMALLY GET OFFERED!
