We want to say that CouponCyborg.com is going to change the entire online coupon niche but we can't, at least not yet and not without a good design. Help us get our feet off the ground!
As the majority of online shoppers are not sophisticated internet users, your design needs to be easy to use. Easy to use means that when your average internet surfer lands on Couponcyborg.com, it should be immediately apparent that this is a coupon website.
We need you to design two pages - a home page and a merchant page.
The merchant page is more important than the home page. You should first submit a design for the merchant page. You will only need to design the home page if your merchant page is chosen as the winner. The home page shares many elements with the homepage so completing the merchant page is equivalent to 80% of the project.
A typical competitor merchant page and home page looks like:
To illustrate the elements that are MANDATORY in your design, I've updated a mock template of our website here:
Both the merchant and the homepage share these elements:
2. Search box
3. Navigation menu (A,B,C,D,E,F...X,Y,Z)
Logo - You can design a logo that matches the theme of your design if you so desire. As this is mainly a template design contest, you do not necessarily have to submit a logo.
Merchant page must include:
1. Merchant snapshot/logo
2. Links to Other Stores
3. Offer Details + Coupon Code
4. Popular products offered from store with product image and name
Home page must include
1. Featured Stores
2. Latest 25 Coupons with these columns: Offer Details, Coupon Code, Stores
Design is entirely up to you but the above elements must be included.
