To the next lucky website contest holder,
Consider yourself fortunate if GDT Design chooses to participate in your design contest. I cannot say enough about GDT Design. He won an ultra competitive website challenge with SIX amazing and super creative finalists. I gave GDT copious, detailed notes, and he followed them to the letter, while continuing to produce elegant, crisp designs. He has no ego--meaning, he eagerly accepts feedback and corrections, and had no problem adapting his creative to fit my business needs. A desirable trait in such a talented person!
I have very high standards, and GDT met or exceeded them all.
GDT did a fantastic job of utilizing my logo elements and weaved them intricately throughout all the pages of my website design challenge. He also created a strong stylized aesthetic which really added character to my website. During the design process, it was clear that he did a good job reading the design brief and understood what was required of him; this meant that his initial designs were of high quality. After the job was done (he was already declared the winner of the contest), when he found out I could not afford one of the images he used, he gladly found and replaced the image with a more reasonable alternative.
GDT is a nice guy, a talented artist, and a true design partner. I look forward to working with him in the future.
How apxautoparts started their web page design journey
APX Auto Parts
This is an ecommerce website design project for an online auto parts retailer called APX. APX is an abbreviation for Auto Parts Express. Our domain name is http://www.apxautoparts.com. We just completed a very successful logo design contest and want to use this new logo as a basis for our site’s color scheme and branding. We are looking for 4 mockups: 1)home page 2)category listing page 3) product listing page and 4) a product page.
Our current line of car parts falls under the categories of brake components, fuel systems, ignition & distributors, radiators, routine maintenance parts, starters & components, steering, and suspension.
By far, the cream of the crop in our industry is http://www.autopartswarehouse.com and we want to do everything we can to emulate the success that they have had on the internet.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Guys who like to get the best deal they can on their car parts. They may be buying the part as a DIYer (do it yourself-er)or they might simply be trying to avoid getting ripped off by the dealership or repair shop.
Please review the attached word document for requirements.
I have also attached the logo in eps, jpg and psd formats.
We are not looking for you to supply any coding. All we need are layered PSDs. The resolution size should be what is typical for a Magento website or what is similar to http://www.autopartswarehouse.com.
