Task Description
I'm starting an online magazine called LSM which allows people to shop for products featured by simply clicking on them. This magazine is targeted at teenage girls and hip twenty-something women.

Basically, it's a pretty online magazine with a twist - each post may have a bunch of products at the end of it that directs the user to the online shop which it is sold at.

For example, if I write an article about Back To School fashion, at the end of the post there will be a few recommended items (cute dresses, stationary etc) for the readers which they can click on. I'll try to illustrate my idea using visual examples.

Front Page / Shop / Editor's Letter / Contribute / Our Story

What I Need:
- a front page with a pretty menu, slideshow, newsletter sign up, categories, posts and other features

- the shop page looks like the front page but has different slideshows, categories and posts

- posts should allow me to add slideshows, videos and recommended items at the end of the post

- editor's letter just links to the editor's letter post
- contribute should have form where people can send in stories or upload pictures

To illustrate,
- Example of the website layout drawn by me:

This is a rough sketch I did on whim. I am not a designer and if you can simplify it or make it better, feel free to do so. (Feel free to make the sidebar smaller and neater.I'll probably need a small sidebar so I can place my recommended products in longer rows.)

- I love the style of this website (even though it's not a magazine):

It is sleek, easy to navigate, and has soft feminine colors. I like how uncluttered it is and hope that individual my post pages can look similar.

- Another simple website:

- Post with slideshow Example 1:

Example 2:

- Post with recommended/featured item at the bottom:

Note: It should not only shows the picture of the item, but also the name, price and brand.


I will probably need you to help me install/set up the website as I am new to this.

This is my current logo (without the LSM text):

As you can see, it is quite whimsical, playful and fun which is the overall vibe I hope to achieve.

Comments and Questions

I am happy to design this concept for you, however I can only complete it in PSD format (no coding) as I am not trained in website programming. Should I enter some designs anyway or would you prefer someone who can also launch and activate the website for you?

Hi there!

I would prefer someone who can do the programming and can launch/activate the website for me. However, if you have a really stellar design, I don''t mind paying for it and getting someone else to program the website. If you can activate the website so I don''t have to do all the technical details, chances of winning will be higher though.

Hello Toasty

Thanks for the invite. I am definetly a whimsical artist and love doing this sort of thing. But I have 2 jobs so time is a big issue. Before I accept the challenge (I mean before I start designing it) I would like to know if you want the coding done with the submission?

I can do the wireframes and background design and if you have pictures you want placed or banner text, etc., that would be no problem, but I cannot code the pages in 9 days I just dont have that kind of freedom - especially since this is a contest and there's no guarantee you will choose my design.

I can submit a general mock up design in jpeg format and if you like it enough we would go from there. If this is agreeable to you please let me know ASAP so I can start designing it

thank you for your time

What will be the name of your online Magazine?

Do you want an A4 magazine, made in Flash, you do not need programming, just put the pages, for your site?
You could easily just have a link on your site, and the Magazine would open in a Blank page. I can do that easilly, in an ellegant way, and show you online how it works.

If interested, please send me a message, and I will show you one I have.
