Ray Pittman got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Parks Superior needs a new website design
Check out Ray Pittman's Web page design contest…
This is a website revamp for a long term customer of ours. The Parks Family has been selling and servicing hearses, funeral cars, and limousines to funeral directors around the country for over 50 years. They offer a complete service department, parts department and body shop. The offer new and pre-owned vehicles and offer financing through a second business arm: Crown Financial. They want to be THE destination for funeral directors when they think of cars.
Competitor sites: http://www.heritagecoach.com/ http://www.jwfuneralcars.com/ http://www.tributeenterprises.com/ (I know you can do WAY better than these) Manufacturer sites: http://www.sscoachcompany.com/ http://www.eaglecoachcompany.com/main/index.php http://www.federalcoach.com/index.php
Overall site: rich colors, simple elegance, automotive: chrome, leather, steel. Customer likes textured background (see stewarthaasracing.com). Customer wants the site to be elegant but not TOO high scale, and not too low. Right in the middle. Site should be 960px or better wide. Logo has two colors: black and gold. Use a color pallette that will enhance the logo. Customer will be adding http://www.snapengage.com/ (note the green help button on the left). The home page should be the portal to getting the customer where they need to go: New Cars, used cars, repairs, parts. For new and used vehicles there are different types: hearses, limos, flower cars, first call vehicles, and sedans. Should be eye-catching without being TOO busy. Sign up for a mailing list, search inventory. Pay attention to the current print ads, available here: http://www.parkssuperior.com/adv_specials.htm. Once you've gotten three or better stars, start submitting the following: LISTING PAGE: The next page will be a revamp of http://www.parkssuperior.com/vehicles.htm?cond=Used (inventory listing). Give us something to make this look better. This is a data fed page. CAR DETAIL PAGE: Now revamp this page: http://www.parkssuperior.com/vehicle.htm?id=274s519t (the car detail page).

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.
Ray Pittman 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!
The job was a complex web app, including transactional and social design elements. Chris did a fantastic job; he was patient, responsive and quick. He also delivered excellent design work and we were super pleased with the entire process. I have never worked with him before, and I was pleasantly surprised at how professional and talented he is.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
