Professionally-designed version of my quick & dirty mock up. (something MUCH more polished, stylish, & professional, please :-).
You can see the basic color scheme in the mock up and I'd like to keep that the same. I also would like to keep the two column layout.
You might want to play with the grey gradient center background to see if you can come up with something a little better. Also, a frame around the video player might work… (or not??)
In the final wining design I would like for the header graphic and the big green button to be left blank with no text so that I can easily change it as I need to.
Please ask LOTS of questions! I will be personally monitoring this contest VERY closely, and I promise prompt, thoughtful feedback for each design submitted!
