MikeKennedy got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Design a beautiful, contemporary, minimalist website for artists
Check out MikeKennedy's Web page design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
The Better Artist is a blog that teaches people how to draw. (We don't have a website for this brand yet.) In time, we will also teach people how to paint. But initially, the focus is in on drawing.
The style needs to be modern, minimalist and elegant. The visitors to this site are artists so they have a keen eye for details. The site needs to be beautiful and artistic, but not at the expense of readability! We want the site to communicate very clearly, so we need a clear UI, with easy-to-read fonts. The colours need to be subtle and tasteful. (Nothing garish or too bold!)
We need a homepage with a big full-width featured image that shows an artist at work. Remember, we are focussing on drawing first. In time we will also teach people to paint. The feel of the home page should be aspirational and warm. We need some 'tiles' on the page that we can link to, for our youtube channel and to certain content that we'll choose in future.
What to avoid
We don't want dropdown menus, the nav menu should just be homepage, about us, contact . The nav menu should be integrated to the full width image. (We don't want it to stand alone at the top of the page and appear separate to the feature image.) No overpowering or garish colours. It needs to be tasteful, and subdued. We don't want much detail on the pages, but what's there needs to be beautiful and contemporary. We don't need social icons anywhere.
1) Please use a full-width image at the top of the homepage. 2) We don't want a sidebar on the site. 3) We'd like the final design delivered as a layered PSD file. If you need more details please just let me know.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
MikeKennedy collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
