This will not be a full website. Instead it will be a landing page for my latest book, Positive Impact. The next step will be for a redesign of my website, so please do not draw examples from my existing design elements. The winner of this contest will have a foot in the door when it comes to proceeding with a full website design that draws similar elements from this landing page.
I would like to have a unique design (this means no templates please), that showcases my book. The elements on the webpage will be as follows: (in no particular order)
- Space for 8-10 testimonials by people who’ve read the book and have something to say
- A small paragraph “About the author” with the following text: "Michael R. Virardi is specializing in the training and development of individuals and organizations. His energy, enthusiasm and knowledge have made him one of the most sought out speakers at company events, training sessions and conferences. He is the author of the best-selling book: “Positive Impact! 26 Simple Ways to boost your business and your life”; an approved lecturer for the Human Resource Development Authority of Cyprus (HRDA) and a Visiting Professor to various Universities in Cyprus."
- Video with speech of Michael introducing the book
- Download the book sample for free
- Bonus feature, if you buy the book you get a bonus CD (or download the 20 minute video) on the 11+1 secrets to increase your sales.
- Logos and slogans such as Volkswagen, Audi, Interlaw, Bank of Cyprus, Le Meridien, MetLife Alico, Aker, that represent some of Michael's existing clients and create trust with the viewer.
- Michael's contact information
- Link to http://www.michaelvirardi.com website
- Links to social media pages
- A sign-up for a newsletter
- Ability to either buy the book online or from an online retailer such as Kindle. This is yet to be determined, but the appropriate placement for this content should be present.
I would like to see elements of the existing book cover utilized in the presentation of the landing page. Please do not use flash and I would like to keep it as simple as possible. I know that there aren't too many existing graphic elements for you to draw inspiration on, but I'm hoping that you will develop some visuals for this design that reflect the positive, energetic attitude that describes me.
