Can you incorporate simplicity, elegance AND personality into an arresting blog design with lasting power?
We need someone to redesign the blog at: http://www.entrepreneurslife.com/
The author has already had someone playing with the structure to get the basic layout (structure only, not look/feel) the way they’d like, so, you are really working from this: http://www.entrepreneurslife.com/_s…/blogtest/
No coding is needed, just the layered PSD file.
The only elements of the original design that must remain are a) some use of the panther, b) the structural elements of the sidebar, and c) PERSONALITY --- the author is insanely passionate about entrepreneurship, writes and speaks with personality and attitude ... the design needs to reflect that ... not bland, nameless, faceless, corporate boredom.
You are free to be creative as you like, with just a few elements in mind.
The author wants the image of the panther integrated in the site --- think of it as a sort of personal totem. He likes simplicity and elegance ... NOT bling for bling’s sake ... combined with some drama. Think old film noir movies filmed in black and white and the oft-quoted (for a reason) Apple site.
Images of the panther and photo of the author can be found at http://www.cageserver.com/for99designs/
We'll provide a killer reference to the winner, and feedback to anyone who takes the time to submit a design.
