Wordpress site design - coded
Check out mcjessica's Web page design contest…
I'm looking for an eye-catching, professional, and fully coded design for my museum's main website. Our intent is to run the whole website in Wordpress for the CMS features. Minimal graphics, more focus on html//css.
Byron Museum of History
What's your vision?
I’m looking for an attractive and professional redesign of my museum's website (http:///www.byronmuseum.com). I am wanting to use Wordpress as my whole website to take advantage of the cms features; one element will include a blog, but the other pages will just be pages. The design should be delivered in HTML/CSS. Ideally, the design would be submitted as 2 "templates" - 1 for the front page of the site, and a 2nd, more standard design for all secondary pages (which I will then use for the rest of the site). The redesign should be either 1 or 2 columns with a header and a footer. I tend to prefer dropdown navigations such as what is seen here: www.byronmuseum.org or http://colocomm.com/. If not using a dropdown, the main objective is that the navigation should be extremely clear and easy for folks to navigate. This is a small town in the midwest, and the people here tend to be quite conservative and not yet very tech-savvy. So, no need to be too fancy - just clean & clear. Header:The header would ideally incorporate our logo, which can be found at http://byronmuseum.com/logo/ Feel free to modify the colours of the logo to fit in with the design. There are also a number of images from our town (Byron) which could be used either as part of the header or within the site itself. They are in my Flickr album at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mcjessica/sets/72157602696072398/ Feel free to use any of the images in our gallery in the header or in your design. Navigational LinksSame as at byronmuseum.org. Main BodyWill consist of 1 or 2 columns. I do not like really narrow body areas. It doesn't necessarily need to be a fixed width design, but I like to see the widest body area that is possible within the modern constraints of accessibility. If using 2 columns, the narrower column (or sidebar) would include a number of Wordpress widgets including google calendar events, flickr photo badges, etc. "Body" ColumnWill accommodate all the existing content and will adapt to the width of your browser FooterSimple - just the copyright, address of the museum, link to webmaster. Thanks in advance and good luck!
- Clean, clear design that won't look too "techy" for people in a small town, but will look professional - Very readable content + obvious navigational elements - "Clean" Html/CSS so I could easily go in later and change small features of the design if necessary - :Look & Feel consistent with our new logo (located at http://byronmuseum.com/logo/
- Excessive graphics - some are okay, but I want my page to be more focused on CSS and text - Narrow body - Too small text

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.
mcjessica 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.
