Andrew Connell got their new web page design by running a design contest:
New website design wanted for Andrew Connell
Check out Andrew Connell's Web page design contest…
Primarily a blog for technical (coding, development, etc.) and brochure for my consulting & speaking services. I plan to migrate the existing site over to a new platform (OrchardCMS / www.orchardproject.net) and the design needs to work within the context of this.
I really like the new metro / modern / Microsoft Design... there is a specific theme for Orchard already out there (linked below) that is along the lines of what I'm looking for, but I definitely want it to look unique (but not crazy): http://gallery.orchardproject.net/List/Themes/Orchard.Theme.TheMetroTheme The AC script-style logo on my existing site will remain... I have an EPS that I've attached. I also want to include the MVP logo on the left side of my site (there's a vertical & horizontal version I have copies of). These two logos would be on all pages along with the typical social icons. I also want to leverage the same color scheme of my current site, primarily the dark blue with orange accents, but mostly a white background vs. what I currently have. Also, I need styles for H1-H4 and hyperlinks as well as callouts (blockquotes). Note the metro design linked above has the three columns in the footer... I'd like that included as well. Finally, I want to retain the "Translate this page" control that's in the top-right of my site in the sidebar of the design along with a search control, and tag cloud.
Homepage - Not like what I currently have which is static. I'd like to have the standard primary navigation, logo, a brief static message and a rollup of recent blog posts, events where I'll be, search box, etc. Content Rollup Page: For instance when you go to a page like this, you see a list of items: http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/archive/2013/01.aspx Article Page: Used to view specific content pages. http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/archive/2013/01/16/my-experience-migrating-to-office-365.aspx
What to avoid
A busy design like what I currently have... there's too much on my site.. I want to focus more on the content than I am doing right now. Horizontal scrolling!
Desire a responsive UI that scales well... no horizontal margins but looks great at the popular browser resolutions. My audience is more technical.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at €549.

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.
Andrew Connell 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.
