Up For Grabs
- Dreamweaver CS5
- Photoshop CS5
- Illustrator CS5
- Flash Professional CS5

- Flash Catalyst CS5
- Contribute CS5
- Acrobat 9 Pro
To win, you must submit the best redesign of the Mario's Catering homepage (no sub-pages) before the 17th of November – that's 2 weeks from today. While you don't need to keep any visual elements from the design (photos, branding), you must use all the copy and links on the existing website.
The website hasn't been redesigned since 1999 – and was probably not an example of good design or development even then! We need you to breathe new life into this outdated business with a complete redesign and rebranding of the homepage to bring it up to present day standards. Entries will be judged by the design team at Business Catalyst and several key members of the FSw team.
Our friends at Business Catalyst provide a web service that helps you build powerful Online Businesses for your clients. Because their #1 users are designers, they know a lot about what goes into good design!
To enter the competition, submit your full-resolution homepage redesign as a JPG screenshot to the FreelanceSwitch Flickr group and make sure to tag it '90sredesign' or we will not be able to find your entry. Remember, entries must be submitted before the 17th of November. Entries are open world-wide, except to Envato staff and Adobe employees.
