Dear Lang-8 Users and friends!
Want to help shape the future of Lang-8?
We are holding a "new design" contest, where YOU will have the chance to completely revamp the look and feel of Lang-8.
What should I design?
For this contest, all you have to do is design the Lang-8 top page (the page you see before you log-in).
$50 to the top page that is selected
(The person that is chosen will be asked to continue working on the rest of the Lang-8 pages (including buttons, icons, etc) and will receive payment of $300-$500, USD.
Everyone who applies will get their names credited under the "special thanks" page.
Submitting your Design
Time Limit: August 12, 2008, 24:00pm Japanese time.

We will publication the file on Lang-8 "Design Contest"group

Design Details & Rules:
(1) The width should be between 900px-930px
(2) The current alignment of the Lang-8 website is located to the left, but the new design should be aligned to the center.

-Lang-8 Logo (please design a new logo)
-Language select interface
-Help link / button
-navigation (home, entries, member, tag, Q&A)
-Something to introduce Lang-8 concepts (this is important, and if there is something with a world map, that's best)
-Something that introduces Lang-8 services (correcting sentences, tag function (coming soon!), Q&A (this is coming soon too) and there is the possibility of adding new functions, so please design this area so it's flexible and allows for more options later on).
