How Chris ORorke started their web page design journey
Guaranteed Tip Sheet
Horse racing handicapper wanting to share my winning picks with the public. My tip sheets will come with a money back guarantee. If you don't make some money, why should we?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Horse racing enthusiasts to the occasional bettor. Mostly male, ages 18-70. Do not discount female readers.
I'm looking for a one-page design template. The homepage design is the most important and should really catch the reader's eye and come across as very professional and easy to follow. The biggest thing we want to convey is our money back guarantee. We already have a logo from a previous contest. I like two different versions of the logo. You are welcome to choose either one based on the style of your design. Please incorporate the colors from the logo in the overall design.
In terms of design, I really like the simple, yet elegant look of a site like http://www.getfirefox.com. It shouldn't be overly crowded, just the basics to get the job done.
In terms of functionality, this is an e-commerce site which sells horse racing tip sheets for multiple racetracks per day. Users have the option of creating an account so there should be login/signup areas within the design. I'd like a place to showcase previous winning days with amounts, etc. There should be a way to download a SAMPLE tip sheet and then listings for our current products.
IMPORTANT: I also need a MOBILE version of this design created for tipsheet.mobi. I'd like a graphic and link showcasing our mobile version of the site somewhere near the top of the page. The mobile version should be very basic and fit on a iPhone, etc.
