Do you have additional requirements or links you want to share?

The name of my website is www.SellPin.com. It is a way for existing Pinterest users to sell the items they own in their pins to other Pinterest users. Think of the website as the ‘Ebay of Pinterest’. The site is live and usable but it is not launched publicly – people don’t know about it – so please don’t tell people. The website is very basic right now – it has the final logo in it – but I purposely did not put any design into it – we are building the back-end of it so the functionality is there but now we need to style every page of the site. Please use the logos colors for the website (Could we do this blue: 1ca6ee (hex code)
And this green: 25b266 (hex code) – and I want the website to be colorful.
-The table Layout of every page is 1200 pixels wide so you should design your graphics with a max width of 1200 pixels wide.
-Every single page of the site inside and out has to be designed up - not just the main pages.
You will need Sign up as a new user and then hit Sell and Post a product for sale. And then you will need to click on every single button/option in the website to see how every page looks and design for that page.
Here is a summary of all of the pages in the site that needs design. I am open to totally new ideas – you do not have to keep the layout that is there. And we are not keeping any button or font or header or table that is there either – all of that must be designed new by you. Please do not re-use anything you see (except for the form fields and the home page product item boxes – but even the boxes can be redesigned by you).
Needs a new design for:
Home Page
Register Page (with help)
Product Details/Listing Page (both listing the item - and when the item is done)
My SellPin Page
My Account Page
MySellPins Page
My Messages Page
Advanced Search Page

Design a template for all SellPin Emails

In addition we need:
-A New Suggested font
-Need to update all tables with a new design (grey tables)
-All new text headers
- every part of the registration page should have help icons in it (like a ? mark icon) and we need to put graphics next to each field to help the user. (explaining every field)
- every page inside site should have graphics or images on the side or top to help improve the feel of the site. Header graphics announcing each page/images that make the site look better etc.
I like how on this website - they used bright colors and images on the left side to make the page look better – but don’t feel you have to copy this.
http://www.picturezoo.com/pages/features.htmlal... every page:
http://www.picturezoo.com/pages/about.html
http://www.picturezoo.com/pages/pricing.html

-every button that the user presses needs to have an image – and you don’t have to feel that you have to keep the same sizes as the buttons that are there –again – I don’t like what is there or the font.
-Every single screen - every single popup on the screen has to have design to it.
-We need to rethink the home page squares as well. the squares that are around each image. Do we want to keep them like they are or redesign those as well.
Also – the graphic that talks about Ebay and Amazon on the home page – has to go.

You should not think of this as only adding graphics but you should think of it as what is the best way to display the text as well.
Add Social Media Buttons (Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Google+) to the top of the website somewhere.
Please slice all of the images up at the end so that a programmer can integrate the images into the website.

I attached the final logo that I just had designed up 1 day ago here on Crowdspring. Ignore the colors in the logo - the final logo text will have those blue and green colors that I mentioned earlier in this brief.

Please please please ask me questions as you go. I will rate and offer feedback on your project several times as we go.

Brief updates

For the home page - we won't keep the 'If you can pin it on pinterest you can sell it on sellpin' graphic. So we will get rid of that graphic but we need to convey with a new graphic or set of graphics that SellPin works/integrates with Pinterest.

You list items to sell on SellPin and then you hit one button and they are posted on Pinterest where millions can see them and buy them. We need to convey that on the home page somehow.
24-May-12 7:45 p.m. GMT
I would definitely like to see the home page designed - like you all have been submitting. But I also want to see what 1 or 2 inside pages would look like. (so I can see how you design the buttons, text headers etc). You have to sign up to the site to get in there and then design a page around it - I wouldn't mind seeing the sign up pages or the actual finished product listing page (or 'SellPin Central')

Can future submissions show both the home page AND an inside page or two?

26-May-12 12:37 a.m. GMT
It is great to see the home pages - but if it is possible to submit a 2nd and 3rd image to show how you would design some of the inside pages of the site - like the product listing page, the registration page, the SellPin Central page etc. I really want to see how you would design the inside of the site as much as I want to see the home page. That is going to help me decide. You need to sign up to accomplish this.
28-May-12 8:41 p.m. GMT
The phrase 'If you can pin it on Pinterest - you can sell it on sellpin' may not be kept for the final design......it is really long. So don't feel like you have to put it in your future mockups......but I do want to see ideas on how we can sell to the new user who comes to the website that SellPin does just that (interacts with Pinterest - and is the 'ebay of pinterest' without using that long phrase....
28-May-12 11:21 p.m. GMT
Creatives - I am really liking the home page designs you are entering - but if there is a way to do an additional entry or two of what the inside of the website will look like. You could pick the registration page and the product listing page and or the 'SellPin Central' page. You have to sign up to see these pages and design them. I am looking for new design for the pages - please don't rehash what I have there now (except for button names but nothing else).
30-May-12 3:50 p.m. GMT
As I request that you also design some inside pages based on my original creative brief (SellPin Central, Registration Page, Product listing page are just some of them you could design and submit).

You need a login to the website to access these pages and design a mockup off of these pages. The login is:

I had said in my brief that I needed AI files after the project is done - and I had some creatives complain about that - - however don't let that stop you - I actually prefer PSDs (Photoshop) which maybe most of you design in...so don't let the AI thing stop you. PSDs are totally fine!



31-May-12 12:01 a.m. GMT
Some creatives have complained about the 17 pages that need to be designed (for the money I am offering). I listed 17 pages but it is not that many - the same template can be used on some of the pages over and over (with just changing the header name etc)- so it is probably closer to 10 pages that need specific design.
31-May-12 1:22 p.m. GMT
With 4 days to go - I only really love 2 designs so far so the project is still wide open. I hope that I will continue to see new entries. And as I stated before - any submission that has both the home page and some inside pages - is going to score more points with me.
