    Arrow >>>Designers Only<<<100MB Free E-mail Site>>>

    Hi,

    Iam working on a site mailUS.us which would provide a 100% AD free e-mail service with the 100 MB e-mail storage space per account, full backup and plenty of other latest features.

    So, I'd need an excellent design with attractive slogan/caption for the login page that would reflect the essence of the domain name mailUS.US

    The winner gets $30.00 payable via paypal.

    Example sites:
    http://www.dj.org/
    http://www.wazup.com/
    http://www.kukamail.com/

    Reasonable enough, huh ?

    I'm not sure which board you are checking (if not both), so I'll submit the design here as well.

    Hello

    mhq, magnet -> Well, that's the amount I thought i could offer and that's the reason I ended my offer with "Reasonable enough, huh ?".

    But, in case you folks thing I need to shell out more, well...it depends on the design. But please do let me know.

    xestanz, as PWH_anthony pointed out the "us" in "MailUS" is an objective form of the pronoun "we". btw, I really liked your design ..especially the color combinations...but as I've mentioned may be it needs some "American" touch ...just like idoogleceo did..with catchy slogans...

    idoogleceo : You've did what I exactly had in mind ...and it's really neat but..but may be we could have a classy look like..xestanz did..

    btw, I've posted the same ad even on sitepoint

    http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...threadid=68243

    So, guys..keep them coming and let me know if you think you could pull up a better design than the ones xestanz/idoogleceo did ...even if you want me to increase the $$

    Thanks for all the responses.

    hehe thanks .

    Also, idoogleceo you have a great design.

    Well, may be 50 if it's really good..

    idoogleceo's design at http://www.avidnewmedia.com/clientsp/mailusscreen.gif is much more classier looking in my humble opinion.

    xestanz's design is also nice, but the medium gray colored fonts WILL NOT show up *vividly* on the monitors of visitors who have a brightness setting higher than average.

    hope that helps you to decide when it comes to making improvements.

    I will try and make some better modifications. I do have to ask however, what is your definition of "classy?" The only reason I ask, is because I'm not sure if I'm on the same page.

    Well, may be 50 if it's really good..
    I can certainly understand your situation, and I'm more than willing to help as much as I can. However, we (AvidNewMedia) usually never submit our best work to contests. This is usually due to the uncertainty of contests, and the fact that our average client project ranges anywhere from $800 to $8000, and although we do our best for every client, regardless of price quote, it's going to be a little difficult to constitute doing one of our best designs for $50.00 or even $60.00, when we would normally charge our clients our normal fees.

    Like I said, however, I will submit something that may be a little closer to your specifications. However, I hope that you can understand my situations as well, in regards to submitting our "best" work.

    I went a bit out of control with the orange...but if you like the design, I can change the colors around for you ;-)

    Hmm I just saw that you wanted an American theme...I'll play with the colors for a more patriotic appearance in the morning.

    hey folks...by the way you all are missing one important point..It's going to be a 100 MB/user ...nothing more and nothing less...that should also be shown creatively on the temp...
    thx.

    hmmn..good...but to be honest...well, may be the colors do not go well...what ya think ?
    -thx

  35. #35
    They clash with the white background but that can be changed. Also, the red and blue parts are very easy to change, so if you want me to vary them, just ask.

  36. #36
    Hmmn..still I like the first one :-) though that's not Americanised...
    Hey btw is it possible to have a blend of Liberty and American flag with memorable twins behind...Iam willing to raise my bid if Iam asking too much...
    Just a thought...
    Thanks.

    Hello Folks,

    Thank you for the entries. Now I think Iam decided but I think it's kind of strange to ask.
    I do not even know if that would be legitimate enough to do..Any how, here I go :

    I liked the way BrianF and xestanz did the designs but and I especially liked the way Brian made the writeups and the captioning. I'd like to go with the first design that I've received but need Brian's help with that.

    Brian --> In case I buy the template (http://www.design.subtheory.net/templates/mail.htm) from Xestanz, would you please help do the captioning stuff on it as well as use a picture of Uncle Sam with the laptop/notebook instead of the lady along with using a very light shades of blue and red for the American flag on the background that is already present.

    xestanz --> Is it OK with you ?

    Please let me know.
    Thanks.
