|TIP #1: Make it 1-page or 2-page |
Web design in Photoshop (the approach taken in all these contests) takes a lot of effort! To minimize this effort, focus the brief to just the home page or 2 pages (the homepage and 1 'interior' page).

TIP #3: Provide your logo
If you're looking for a web design, you probably already have a logo. If you do, make sure you attach it as an EPS or format with a transparent background. If you don't, run a separate logo project (see our logo contests for examples). Providing the correct logo files (e.g. EPS, PDF, PSD or PNG with transparent background) will let designers add your logo seamlessly to your web design concepts and give them freedom to manipulate the logo color or the background color of the website.

TIP #4: Invite 5 to 10 designers
This seems to be the right number of designers to invite. Three of our five example projects on the right, invited exactly 5 designers! The response rate in each case was much higher, but having 5 'core' designers from our top web designers directory will help. Note that all of these invites offered participation payments of $30 to each designer.

TIP #5: Give a wireframe or menu
While you might want a creative graphic design work done, it will help designers dramatically if you provide them with some detail on direction. Providing them with the menu (i.e. the navigation items) or a wireframe (a barebones structure of the site) the designers will have some basic direction to work with!
