We are looking to have a redesign of the homepage on our popular financial site: OilPrice.com. The current version can be found here: http://www.oilprice.com
I have attached a document with full details of our requirements. Could ALL designers please read this as the description here – really doesn’t tell you much and if you are to compete you will need to read the word doc.
I am open to anything at present. But it MUST show our news articles in an easy to read and uncluttered way and also promote our paid financial service and the articles and reports that are generated from this.
Investment newsletter buyers
Penny stock investors
Energy Markets investors & Employees.
Gold, silver, precious metals
Basically anyone in Finance and Investing – from small investors to hedge funds.
Also anyone with an interest in the oil, natural gas and Alternative energy industries.
Please see attached doc for full details.

2) Promote our paid service next to the regular news – we will have daily content to add from our paid service.
3) Ads to promote our widgets and RSS feed

Please See attached Spec - All details are there.
http://www.economist.com – Very nice clean layout – the ads above the logo seem to work quite well.
http://www.energy-business-review.com/ - The two columns work really well for news stories. And the right hand side looks quite nice – but this section will need to be more obvious. Maybe have a small logo / picture, something.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ - nice layout – I like how they have the Matt and Alex columns – maybe something similar – or maybe not.
http://mikechamberslive.com/ - Nice use of space for the articles on the left hand side. Lots of info without looking too cluttered.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/ - Nice layout and use of space – very professional looking.
http://www.moneyandmarkets.com/ - Nice use of the picture and sign up box.
http://www.efinancialnews.com/ - Nice Layout of the top part.
http://www.ft.com/uk/markets - like the position of sign in and subscribe, etc... It also has quite a nice layout.
