    Feedback for posted entries:

    Campolar:
    A bit more colour around the design would be good. Would prefer a bit more colour than just in the header. Maybe some around the footer. Also could you please make the logo font stand out more as bold and strong font?

    DrZapp:
    I like the colours you have used. It looks very clean and very web 2.0. Just a few changes needed. Could you please make adbrute in the logo read as AdBrute ( With capitals on the A and the B ). And also remove the little circle image. We prefer the mascot standing near the logo which you have done. But maybe try making it a bit bigger.

    Sairos:
    Great design. I am really liking that one. Only 1 change that I can see is could you please swap the mascot in the publisher box with a different web 2.0 icon?

    ChemicalDesigns:
    Not to keen on that design sorry. Its a bit to dark for my liking. We would like something with lighter shades of colour please. Also we would like a log in box in the top right hand corner please and not a search box.

    saxDesigns:
    I love the 2nd one with the 2 shaded lines. Can't see anything that needs improving. Great job.

    LipGut:
    I like this one better. Not to fond of the logo text though, its a bit too complicated and hard to read. Also could you add some web 2.0 images in the advetiser/publisher boxes. And just space them out a bit from the News bar.

    Thanks


    PS: Campolar. The annoying thing about an Advertising Network is that you need a decent amount of advertisers and publishers before you can open. So we are going to build some lists of interested and once we hit that amount open our doors. Shouldn't be to hard as we may not be as high class as Adbrite and Adsense and such. But we are providing a lot higher rates for publishers and such. ( we give them 80% of the revenue they make. Whereas Adsense only gives 40% )

    The logo text, yea i thought that didn't look nice. I'll try and add bit more of details into it. The orange and blue box for advertisers and publishers looks fine? Working on the revisions in a while...

    PS: If you'd need beta testers, do hit me up :D

    Feedback for everyone. ( sorry for the late reply. Very busy today )

    LipGut.
    The logo font is still a bit hard to read. It also does not look very professional. We would also prefer it to be AdBrute and not ADBRUTE. The design itself seems to blue. As it feels like the same blue colour used all over. Would also like to see some development in the footer area. Nothing hugely special but a bit more advanced than the current emptyness.

    UKF Kurtis.
    I like the design. Its nice and clean. Its professional and looks great. Just one thing to change. If you could put a web 2.0 image of money of some sort or something resembling revenue/profit instead of the mascot in the Publisher box please.

    Amir daman:
    I like the simplicity and cleaness of the design. However I would like to see a bit more colour used. We are fond of white's. However it would be nice to see a bit more colour in there. Also I don't really like the idea of the people swinging the pick axe's and such. If you could remove it from the blue block and replace it in the logo with the mascot that would be good. I also don't like the white swirls around the mascot. Keeping the mascot just as it is is just fine.

    Also just to keep in mind for everyone. If you could put "Featured Sites in our Network" rather than "Featured Sites" that would be great. Sorry if I specified it wrong in the wireframe/contest brief.

    Feedback for deebong:

    I love that design. Its a nice layout you have done there. The logo you have made is very nice. And the content boxes you have made look great.
    There are just 2 things that I would like changed. The login box looks like it has been cut of at the top. could you please make it stand out a bit more and make it so that the navbar isn't cutting it off.
    Also the white on the sides is a bit overwhelming. I just possibly a white that isn't so bright or doing the sides so that they don't make you stare away from the main content area would be great.

    Also we have decided to chuck into the prize pool for the winner. If they wish to use AdBrute as a publisher when we open. We will upgrade their account so that they earn 100% revenue. Nothing deducted from us at all.

    Sairos:

    Thanks for the new submission. I like the mascot down the bottom. One thing that I could suggest is that the publishers box needs to have some sort of web 2.0 icon that resembles money or revenue please. Apart from that its great.


    Its getting late here. I will provide any feedback on new designs/revisions when I wake up in the morning.

    Deebong:

    On the left and the right there are 2 white strips as the content does not fill the whole page. ( It runs through the middle ) These are a bit over powering and draw the attention. I was wondering if you could do something else with those 2 side bits so that it doesn't have that overpowering effect. Need the attention to stay on the content area.

    Hello,

    I don't know how open minded you are regarding different aproaches so you might or might not like my design :)
    It has a more creative aproach to it then the corporate feel I think you want :D.Please keep in mind that a visitor remembers better a creative design that pops out from the rest then a generic website that simply blends into the masses:cool:

    Here's my design:

    Thank you,
    AWD

    UKF Kurtis:
    Thanks it looks good. Can't see any changes that need to be made. However your design does look very similar to sairos's.

    awd:
    Sorry not what we are looking for. We want the coporate approach rather than the creative one.
