It was time to take our design to the next level and provide our users with an on-site experience that was unmatched.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) October 25, 2010
Sharperoo, the easy way to find reliable home improvement contractors, today announced the launch of an open contest to redesign Sharperoo.com.
"With our momentum continuing to accelerate at a rapid pace, we all felt like it was time to take our design to the next level and provide our users with an on-site experience that was unmatched," said Rabih Helou, General Manager of Sharperoo. "We felt like we would be doing a disservice to our users if we were to limit ourselves to a small handful of designers so that's why we've decided to launch a competition that's open to the world."
Contestants are asked to review a design brief that outlines the requirements for a redesigned home page as well as a contractor profile page that will be used by over 1.5 million licensed contractors throughout the United States. Submissions will be made over the next week, during which time, the Sharperoo marketing team will be interacting with contestants to help them refine their submissions.
Contestants are competing for a cash prize as well as the opportunity to add a visible, investment-backed start-up to their portfolio. The competition is hosted on 99designs and is available at: http://99designs.com/web-design/contests/take-visible-social-media-start-up-next-level-55904
