Matt90079 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Bring this wordpress theme to life for a friendly, award winning Aussie accounting firm
Check out Matt90079's Web page design contest…
Accounting & Financial
Australian accounting firm that specialises in helping property investors save tax and make better investment decisions. Target audience, small businesses whose owners invest (or want to) invest in real estate, as well as property developers and builders. A lot of the company's clients are aged between 30 - 40 years old. Also want to appeal to people from Mainland China who want to invest in the Australian real estate market
We will be using a Wordpress Template as a design framework (see first website below in next section). So what we want from you is: * Careful, tasteful choice, manipulation and use of stock images. * Creative use of colours in block layouts, fonts and other design elements * Good use of the font-awesome icon set if you decide to use icons ( you can use custom icons too) - but please note USD 100 the budget for stock images etc in the attached document. * Looking for excellent UX design - high contrast for key headlines. Contrasting font styles for adjacent text blocks e.g. Text above and below buttons should be in contrasting styles. VERY IMPORTANT: we have not seen one accounting website that we like so far. Most seem to be very boring. We particularly dislike the standard type of imagery - plastic looking stock photo models in suits shaking hands over glass tables. We are looking for some character / personality / warmth and realism - something that really makes the website stand out and look different from competitors. I spent a bit of time looking through istockphoto for images. I have created a small collection of images that seem OK and could work with the right treatment. I can't say these are fabulous, but they are a little bit different perhaps. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL COMPELLED TO USE THEM. I welcome better ideas. Also note that even though I have chosen lots of piggy bank pictures, you do not have to use this theme, it is definitely not a requirement.

I have set up the copy for 4 pages in mobile width PSD Files. For the services page, I have just included the copy in a word document. 5 pages are as follows 1) Home Page (PSD with copy and rough layout attached); 2) Property Tax Specialist Service Page (PSD with copy and rough layout attached); 3) Better Books Plus Service Page (PSD with copy and rough layout attached); 4) Self Managed Super Fund (PSD with copy and rough layout attached); 5) Services Page (use copy from Word Document) Please use the selected wordpress template as a guide, looking particularly at some of the layout options in the classic concepts section. For the Ipad and Desktop versions of the first 4 pages, we need a hero image in the first section.
What to avoid
Make sure that where text is overlaid on images, the text will be easy to read without any distraction from underlying images. Remember that some clients will be using poor quality screens and may not have good eyesight. As we said earlier avoid the standard boring business website clichés - plastic looking stock photo models in suits shaking hands over glass tables etc. Most of our clients don't wear suits.

5 pages might seem like a lot but 4 of these pages are all quite similar. (Home Page, Property Tax Accounting Specialists and Better Books Plus and Self Managed Super) From your designs of these 4 pages I am looking to create a general master template that I can apply to several more pages not included in this project. *Very important* We are following a Mobile first approach to building the site. So we are looking for 3 layouts for each page 375px, 768px and 1200px. Keep the 375 px view minimal with regards images but add images to the 768px and 1200px views. 30% of customers will view the site on a phone in portrait layout, another 30% will see the site on an tablet / ipad in portrait layout. The percentage of users looking at the site on a desktop is shrinking all the time. While we want the desktop layout to look great too, we will be paying just as much attention to the tablet and phone layouts. Last time I ran a 99 Designs contest, some designers presented just one page as a concept initially. If you do that, please don't present the home page as it is very short. I would rather see the page for Property Tax Accounting, as this will be a master template for other pages. Please do not just present a desktop view as an initial concept as it is the least important view. Need to see 375px and 768px view too. Please see attached MS Word document Additional Notes.docx
