Mattchiste got their new web page design by running a design contest:
homeautomationguru.com needs a new website design
Check out Mattchiste's Web page design contest…
I'm starting a blog called homeautomationguru.com and am looking for a logo and web site design. It will cover home automation technologies as well as other home hacks.
I don't yet have a logo but it seems with this site you can't do both at the same time, so i thought I'd start with a generic, simple web site design and see where that goes. I like the idea of going with a greenish color theme because this will be a a home-related blog focusing on green energy in addition to automation and home hacks, but don't have anything solid in mind at this point. The biggest thing is a list of articles with a side bar that allows for the use of ads in addition to standard WordPress sections like a tag cloud and category list.
This will be a WordPress blog and initially won't require many pages like a home page or product section, but the design should include the ability to apply a top-level navigation. So while a complete Wordpress theme for the HTML markup would be nice, I can convert any static HTML to Wordpress so that's not a requirement. The site will be ad-supported so should include a section in the side bar for Amazon Affiliate links. So just a simple header with first- and second-level nav links (which won't initially be used) with a side column that includes placeholders for Amazon ads plus a clean listing of a series of blog posts would be great. Picking a random site that I've seen recently, I think I'm looking for something like this: http://kingdomrushtd.wikia.com/wiki/Wiki_Content It's got a section at the top for categories, then a section for ads, then a main body with a sidebar that also includes an ad box with other clearly defined areas for the "real" content that I'll be producing.
What to avoid
Nothing comes to mind; we're starting with a blank slate here so I'm hoping to see some neat, clean designs as the foundation for the site. I'm including a screen shot of what i did by converting my existing site/logo (blog.integryst.com) to the new brand, but it's looks very amateur-ish at this point. I have to imagine anything you could produce would be better than that!
