Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Design an amigaworld.net theme contest
   posted by DaveyD on 20-Oct-2005 9:33:51 (3544 reads)
Are you a budding artist? Have you got design skills? Think you can make aw.net look better? Then enter the 'Design an amigaworld.net theme contest'.

The 5 best designs selected by the amigaworld.net staff will go into a poll for website members to vote for their favorite. The winning design selected by website members will become the default theme for amigaworld.net. Runners up designs will also be added to the themes dropdown menu on the left.


Everyone will be fully credited for the designs we use and their name will appear at the bottom of the website i.e. "Theme designed by X".

We dont have much to offer the winner, but we can offer you free hosting with a web address on Amigaworld's server plus an amigaworld.net mousemat.

Upload your designs to our OS4 Gallery in the 'Amigaworld.net Site Design Ideas' section.

That's a great idea.

Maybe also people without "Design skills" could give suggestions about what they would like and what they don't ?

- One of my favourite would be a "more accessible and visible" Search button...

- Then it may look nice (but not necessary at all) if the event section could be sorted depending of where you live (stored in a cookie set in User Profile)... If you live in UK, then events in UK will appear first followed by the rest of Europe, then US, etc. for example...

I agree, the "Search" button should be next to the "Home" or "User account" button on the top of the page.
Or, at last, on top of the "Extras" list.

Ther is nothing more frustrating than searching for th search engine of a web site !!

The fact you need to search at all suggests something is wrong with the interface

They are themes remember, so you can choose whatever one you prefer.


@BigBentheAussie
Closing date is whenever theres enough entries, at least 5, ideally 10

Thanks

I'll probably get flamed for this but I have to say I think that amigaworld.net is probably the best looking website in the amiga scene.

Meanwhile, amiga.com is the UGLIEST website design I've ever seen. Maybe amigaworld staff should be working on the amiga.com site. Heck, am I the only one who thinks this?

I'm personally against that competition, simply because I think that AW.net looks good and elegant
already. Adding more eye-candy will just add clutter and there's no good reason to remove any of
the already existing stuff,

I don`t see the point of redesigning already the BEST looking amiga site. It would be more smart to spend designing energy on creating normal designs for the WORST looking "site" E V E R - amiga.com... I trying to contact [several times] amiga.com "stuff" offering my redesign of amiga.com for FREE [!] - and nobody answered... Ehh.... :(

p.s. last night we installed on real ppc amiga MorphOS - well - that is what I call - design. Pity there is only OS on that CD without any other demo, program or game, but for what I saw - I was amazed that artist who did design for MOS - did it perfectly. Also - MorphOS main site was [is] the most professional looking around. Pity amiga.com "people" will never grow up...
