I'm looking for something in cartoon / comic / caricature - not goofy, style.
See sample images that demonstrate the style from a different designer below (please do not copy but use for motivation).
As you can see the style is almost a mix of Barbie with Apple's iPod ads. Keep in mind, this site is for adults nail and hair salon.
Main color is pink. Accents of brown, white, black (whatever else looks nice).
Company name is: Fixx
Tagline: Nail and Hair Boutique
Logo does not exist but will set up a new contest to design it after website design is complete (or work with winner to design at additional cost).
Price list for Salon is at:
Just to give you an idea on the services they provide.
Home Page will contain welcome text, about 2 paragraphs, and for other pages, the welcome text will be replace with a inside the page scroller that contians relvent information to that page. (e.g. http://www.ristorantebellavita.com - see how design stays when you move from page to page, only the text inside changes and if it overflows, scrolls with-in the design are used). I expect the design to work that way.
Dimensions of main presentation window are: 860px x 560px (width can be smaller but height I'd prefer to keep at around that)
Keep in mind that background is also needed.
Consider colors and copy color for readability (looks nice, fits the theme, but is readable).
Pages / sections (for the nav): home, services, testimonials, contact us
* would be great if mouse overs on buttons are provided
I want address and phone number to stand out (on every page) - keep in mind, you are designing one template that is going to be used on all pages / sections.
Winner might also be asked to create branding images for other pages / sections (for an additional cost).
Final design needs to be in fully layered PSD, with mouse overs for nav (and possibly the characters - slight movement of head or hand or something to make it more interactive since site will be done in HTML, NOT Flash).
I'll add / remove details as I see some submissions.
