Web 2.0 colorful widget design. I'm here to provide a ton of feedback and keep you involved to help you win the contest. Looking for something different and fresh. 1st place = $100, 2nd place = $50, 3rd place = $25. Prizes could be awarded to same designer for multiple designs. Looking to choose winners quickly so quick turnaround is necessary.
The design should represent a widget look and feel. I need a few different colorful skins of the same design once complete.
The widget should catch your eye, be different and screaming to be clicked. Even sexy is not out of the question (not overt).
250x(length is optional) widget w/ 90x90 spot for avatar located top center within header graphic.
Where suitable, include the words:
... Top Spots (visibly stand out, prefer RED) → Top Graphic
... Widgets R Us Everyday → Bottom Graphic
...Color friendly. The layout should be on a "skin" basis so the user can select from multiple color schemes.
...It should have a 3D feel but not too much
...Middle content area must remain white background
...You are welcome to try themed widget skins that appeal to certain groups of people like antique cars, flowers, teddy bears, etc.
...can use suitable stock art that fits with the message
