    Dear Sir, I just saw your message. Time has almost ran out. Is it possible to get some more time? I can change the menu items but the images I need some time to think. Please give me a chance if you think that I have the potential. Thank you.

      The images are not a perfect cut. Had to do it very quickly :)..

      OK here's the update, I've used three types of fonts on the design. Only one is available in google fonts. As for the rest I'm searching for fonts that would give a similar look. One other question, when you say original images you do mean images available in google or are you willing purchase them from a stock images site? Thank you. The fingers are still crossed. :)

      Sorry - your entry has an image from entry #26 and I can not condone using others images (However this may be just a coincedence from image searches). On the bright side there is a certain nostalgic look to your entry - I would hope for a more brighter feelwith seperate social buttons and 5 menu buttons and a search box - or 6 menu buttons :) Thanks for your entry

      I am sorry but it doesnt do it for me - I need fun, themed colour and some wow factor - I do appreciate the intricacies of your centre design - it would suit another type of site I am sure - good graphic work - Maybe try again for this one Thanks :) Kev

      The full red one looks best - how about changing the clock on the left out for somthing a bit more fun / retro and making a 6 item menu rmove the 'products' and add 'Hallmarks' and 'Categories' and 'FAQ' also the pics will need to be a bit more defined and higher in quality etc. - Your a great Contester and I thank you so much for showing me your work :) - Good Luck

      Not quite enough brightness / fun / bold/ wow factor for the Free Classifieds site - But you are quite unique and creative - Well done :)

      I actually like your design and the sparkle to the gold - but I think its too dark for this site and more suited to a jewellers - Great work - dont be discouraged - I really did like the artistic nature of it :)

      Yes Contest will run till the finish - and i will award the winner as soon as possible - I am impressed with the participation and wish they had a 1st 2nd and 3rd ability - But I will be noting the top 5 and giving plenty of opportunity for bid for future design work.

    1/ Ok I am looking for something that will stand out and be synonymous with the site (yes everyone wants that).
    2/ When a web user finds the site they should feel happy to be at it - so maybe something to make them smile whilst not offending, retro and vintage are probably the bigger areas, so that’s worth considering.
    3/ the whole 820px wide by 190px High rectangle can be used - it will be bordered, rounded and drop shadowed by css for compatible browsers.
    4/ The site can be made to match colours etc. - so consider that colours and backgrounds can be changed
    5/ I am thinking maybe a combination of retro/vintage (for the content) and modern (to show tech savvy) but really there are no constraints.
    6/ I will be happy to give credit on the site for the banner/logo/menu in the 'about us' page soon to be added - I will mention that you won the competition here and your contact details or link.
    7/ I appreciate everyone’s effort - and wish you all well in the contest.

    I would love to see maybe 2 or 3 seperate Graphics in the banner (1 or 2 which maybe could be vintage or antique themed images) and (1 x retro themed image) The Business Name is Vintage Antique Retro Collectables - The site url is www.VintageAntiqueRetro.com - There is NO need to have 'Antique store' written in the header, so remember this is a Free Classifieds website not a store. :)

    Oh I forgot to mention in the main description that I will need the individual components and the main completed graphic in a layered PSD/PSP file if you are the winner - so please consider putting elements in layers when you do them - to save the need of re-doing it later. Also the fonts will need to be web based probably from Google Fonts - as all text will be HTML snd CSS

    A flat jpeg will just not be good enough. I have mentioned this for those who are not professional graphic artists etc. No offence meant.

    Just some ideas for starters - Ideas that are here are good, but i need some diversity - what about some retro/vintage signs, or lighted signs or vintage cars or a happy vintage face. Just let your imagination go a little and remember the target market is Australia first and later the US and much later the UK & EU.

    Thanks Kev

      So do you like it to be completely removed or replaced? Thank you.

      I think some how it needs to be removed and replaced - but maybe not at the same size - I kind of need that wow factor to the whole header - whilst the site name etc look elegant on the left - maybe something bright on the right - use you artistic talent to just do the best you think it should look if it was your site and you wanted it to eventually be as big as the major players - with 100,000s of items and vistors. :) Thanks for your efforts - Kev

      as per website http://www.VintageAntiqueRetro.com
      Background = 820px wide by 190px High
      Header Banner = 766px wide x 80px high
      Buttons can be what ever fits and looks cool for an Antique Vintage site
      Logo will need to be able to fit somewhere (intitially logo/site name will be text based) and is not part of this contest

      Thanks - Kev
