makeprogress got their new wordpress theme design by running a design contest:
Design MakeProgress.com, an upcoming personal development website
Check out makeprogress's WordPress theme design contest…
MakeProgress.com will be a personal development brand, designed to help people build good habits, feel organized, and achieve their goals. We currently have two apps: 1. Strides: Habit Tracker (https://www.stridesapp.com) 2. Summit: Daily Planner (http://summitdayplanner.com) We're adding both apps under the MakeProgress.com brand, as well as creating a blog, courses, and other products to help people achieve their goals.
Color: Green (#07A451) Logo: See attached (logo.png) Structure: See attached (wireframe.png) Style: Clean, modern and minimal. I'd like to make good use of white space, but include illustrations/graphics to bring in some color and visual interest, like the websites listed in the inspiration section below. NOTE: Please do not use cartoonish illustrations (large, colorful, 3D, etc). We have a very minimal style (see our apps) so we want simple, flat illustrations to go with it.
Wireframe file attached. Details: - Navigation: Logo (attached) on the left, simple text links on the right. - Intro: Big headline, a couple lines of text and email signup form with green (#07A451) button on the left, with illustration/graphic on the right to represent making progress. Could incorporate our products (Strides: Habit Tracker, Summit: Daily Planner, online courses, blog, etc). - Press logos: Same as what we use on StridesApp.com. - What's in the email course: Center-aligned text introducing it, then 7 sections, each with a headline, text, a link at the bottom, and an illustration/graphic next to it (first graphic is on the right, the next is on the left, back and forth) that represents that idea. Feel free to be creative here. For inspiration, I added generic icons for each lesson in the wireframe. - Email signup form - Testtimonials - Footer
What to avoid
Please do not use yellow. Also, please do not use cartoonish illustrations (large, colorful, 3D, etc). We have a very minimal style (see our apps) so we want simple, flat illustrations to go with it.
I'm starting with the home page, and plan to do a *1-on-1 project* with the winner for all the other page designs. Deliverable: I'd prefer a SKETCH file if possible, but a PSD is fine too. Please follow the attached wireframe's structure and content. For the illustrations that go with each email lesson, feel free to be as creative as you'd like. For inspiration, I added generic icons for each lesson in the wireframe. We won't use a floating menu bar, it will just stay in place. I'm picturing a white background so we can use the colored logo and a green signup button, but feel free to try other colors/gradients if you'd like.
