Website page design (1 page) for Find My Pet, a website that will provide free classified listings for lost and found pets and also pets up for adoption.
Find My Pet
What I want designed
Website page design for the (soon tobe released) Find My Pet website; page design required for:
- Homepage (should include search bar, latest listings, login functionality, place for leaderboard banner ad)The website design needs toincorporate the new Find My Pet logo (winner of contest http://99designs.com/contests/20656) and must be clean, professional but still“fun” (and definitely NOT “cutesie”); should appeal to all pet owners of course :) the homepage in particular should enticepeople to place a free listing (either lost, found, adopt) , or search existinglistings (either lost, found, adopt).
Note: I will be powering the siteusing WordPress (when built) and I have purchased a classifieds listing themeto provide the desired functionality. This theme can be viewed here: http://wpclassipress.com/demo/ - I personally hate the design and hencerunning this competiton……. however this may assist with describing some of thefeatures / functionality likely to be used.
NOTE: If you are a WordPress theme guru(who could then convert my theme to look like the winning design then also letme know!!). This will be a different contest and not part of this however.
Why I want it Designed
I really want a great website designhere – the vast majority of pet related websites are dated, have had limited orno professional design adopted and quite frankly are terrible to look at!
