We need a landing page that consumers will visit before reaching the main site. This landing page will lead to our 'Create an Account' page on http://www.gowallet.com. We'll select three designs (from three separate designers) and award $300 each.
You may use the current site as a reference and starting point, but these are the elements we do not like and want changed for our landing page:
-look and feel is too childish/immature. We'd like a landing page that looks more professional and respectable. Although our site is not necessarily a financial or bank site, we are similar. We are storing consumers gift cards and their values. We want consumers to think the site is secure and trustworthy, like a bank site. In addition, we are a tech savvy, forward thinking company. We don't want to look too traditional. We'd also like the site to look innovative and and somewhat "tech" feeling.
-we want colors that are more deep and vibrant, no pastels like the current site. BUT, we do not want the page to look dark or uninviting.
-since the landing page leads to the 'Create an Account' page, we want most advertising on the landing page and want a prominent "Sign Up" button that really pops. The concept of this site is very new to consumers, so we need more area to describe the product and its benefits.
