This contest is for a vBulletin skin, much like you see here at Sitepoint.com/forums. This community will be dedicated to discussing the shoe brand (http://www.ilovecode.com/images/clients/c1.gif) which you can see the shoes and their feel at their website http://www.ilovecode.com/images/clients/c2.gifÂ
The colors they use are very bright and colorful. I have composed a sampling of the colors for you to choose from. Obviously you can pick what you want as the main colors and use whatever as accessories. Click the link below to see the sample/
An example of a theme they really like is at:
The layout for the theme will be similar to the one mentioned above. They will need a sidebar somewhere for auctions ads similar to how you see there. The right side would be the best or you can choose to place it at the top. I also need a banner for adsense so please factor that into your design.
I would like you to create just the home page mockup and I can take the rest from there. Please make sure you include the appropriate icons in your mockup.
I haven't decided on a fixed or fluid width but feel free to pick your poison. I am hoping this contest will be very straightforward as there are only so many things you can do. Feel free to play with rounded or rectangular corners. I look forward to seeing your creativity! Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
I was asked in the comments if there was a logo and this was my response:
There is no logo, so you can take whatever liberty you want with the domain in the image below. I'm not asking for a logo but please use the domain below and whatever text and colors you feel is appropriate to match your skin.
