12 designers redesign this homepage. Here’s what happened…

Every single month inside my private Community paint Pro we do a web design Challenge so what we do is we deliver a Brief to all of the members of the group And then everyone has a chance to Redesign the website and then submit Their work for a chance to win one of The top four prizes which are all cash Prizes now this is really exciting to Have a little bit of friendly Competition but even more exciting is The opportunity to see how all of these Different designers approach the exact Same project and if you are doing these It's a really great opportunity to Reassess your work and see what you did Compared to what the other designers did And then see why you did or didn't win So in this video I'm going to share with You the top four winners from this Design competition where we redesign the Website for 360 Realty and Property Management now it's important to Understand that that we are not Affiliated with this company or website In any way this is purely for training Purposes but you can see that their Website is fairly outdated and so I was Really excited to see the submission That came in and how all of the Designers inside paint Pro approached This redesign so the first one that I Want to start with is the second place Submission and I'm going to put the

Names of these designers all down in the Description so you can check them out And follow them on social media but this Second place submission was submitted by Michael youngsma and Michael does an Incredible job in fact he's won several Of our competitions but you can see in This redesign he really cleaned things Up and did a fantastic job now from your First impression if it's the same as Mine things are very clean the spacing Is great A lot of good white space it Just feels very professional but a few Things that really stuck out to me Starting at the top is the way that he Utilized this yellow color which was one Of the brand colors delivered in the Brief how he utilized this as a text Underline to highlight specific parts of The headers now this is a great way to Draw people's attention but also it's a Great way to make it feel like the text Is broken up and it's not as difficult To consume as if it was just a big block Of words and so I really loved how I Utilized that color and also he's got a Lot of really unique Design Elements First off are these rounded Corners now You're going to see as I scroll down on Almost all of the blocks and images he's Got just one corner that is rounded and I thought this was a really unique way To give it a totally custom feel and it Didn't take a whole lot to do this all

You had to do was adjust the corner Radius on each of these blocks and so You can see here that he Incorporated Four of these together you can also see Here in the get started form he's Rounding these corners and on all the Other blocks down here in the Testimonials you can see it as well now I think he did a really great job Choosing fonts I do think that this font Is is really fun it feels unique but it Still feels professional the other Design element that I really enjoyed Were the points on the calls to actions You can see here that rather than just Having a plain rectangle shape for the Buttons he's got this little pointer Down here that points at the specific Icons which people can choose from Depending on the service they're looking For and down here on the submission Button he's got this Arrow so this is a Really great example of a winning Submission if I go back and compare this To the old website it is a night and day Difference with how trustworthy the site Feels and overall I think Michael did a Fantastic job All right so now moving on to our third Place winner which was Cara hand Cara is An extremely talented designer within Our group and I really enjoyed her Submission I think it was a really kind Of unique and quirky take on this but it

Actually works really really well so you Can see here that she elected to go with Things Center aligned and I love that She took both of the brand colors and Basically separated the two different Services that 360 offers so you can see Here leasing is in yellow and property Management is in blue now the reason I Think this really worked is the forms Are actually complex because you have a Different form for each of these Individual Services and so she used the Colored tabs here at the top to Determine which service you were Interested in and which form you Received and so I love that she Basically color coded this and made it Really simple for you to understand I do Think that this is a really really fun Take on this now she does have a lot of Images kind of here on the side that I Think just support the whole message While not taking up too much space base Down here we've got a couple of faces And down here as well with the reviews That just make you feel like hey this is Trustworthy other people are using this It does add some social proof and then We've got our footer down here now again I loved Kara's work and we were happy to Have her as one of our winners a few Small critiques that I would make in This that were probably just slight Reasons why this wasn't a first or

Second place winner is the center Aligned feels a little bit odd because You have these kind of hanging single Words down here at the bottom So Houston's number one Leasing and Property management company now I do Understand that care was limited because We give the copy for these challenges And so there wasn't really anything she Could do about that but certainly we'd Want to adjust things like that and then Down here as well I would allow the Width to be slightly larger on this sub Paragraph so you don't have these few Dangling words at the bottom Now scrolling down she did use a lot of These gradients where it goes white to Blue and this does work but I do feel Like background gradients like this that Only utilize two colors are slightly Outdated she probably could have Adjusted this to maybe have like a mesh Gradient where there are a few different Colors those are definitely more in Right now but overall a fantastic job The one other thing that I would mention Is the Box Shadows on all these Different elements just seem a little Bit harsh and they look to me like They're just a standard black color I Think she could have increased the blur On these and maybe given them a slight Blue tint this would definitely have Helped things just feel a little bit

More like they belong but overall care a Fantastic job we're thrilled to have you As one of our winners alright so next is Our honorable mention or our fourth Place winner and this was designed by Alexandros dimiropolos and I hope that I Am pronouncing that correctly but Alexandros did an awesome job I would Say that this design is is a lot closer To the original than the others in terms Of style I do think this is a slightly Older feel but it might fit perfectly For this industry and so I don't think That there's anything wrong with that I I do like that because he elected to use This background image he has these Background colors to make sure that There's some good contrast with the Headers I do think that's really Important one thing that was missed on This is having a clear call to action in The hero section now I do recognize that A lot of times this get started might Pop up within like above the fold but There still is a lot of scrolling to get Down to these forms So those are things that you want to Consider when designing out websites as You go down again utilizing a lot of These background images but I think that The layout is really clean we've got our Paragraphs here which is using kind of This highlight that's one thing that I Always love is breaking up content by

Using colors emojis images or just Paragraph breaks these are all great Ways to make sure that people are more Engaged and more willing to read your Copy but as we go down again we've got a Lot of social proof now the same thing That I'm noticing as I notice in Kara's Design is the Shadows just seem kind of Harsh and like they don't belong a lot Of times it's easy for us to create Background shadows and just use like a Black or a gray but you'll be shocked at How more Custom and and clean it feels it just Feels like it fits if you add a slight Bit of color probably the brand colors Of the website to that background Shadow And then just make them not so harsh you Don't have to have incredibly harsh Shadows for people to be able to Distinguish the elements so that's one Thing that I would recommend and then Just not over using these background Images too much You'll notice in different examples like The first one that we went over of Michael's he's using a background image But he has it fading out in the left Here just to make sure that it's not Overwhelming you want to make sure that There's some really clear contrast so People don't have to look really hard to Read the words because there's a kind of An overwhelming background image behind

It so that's one thing that you want to Keep in mind but overall I really love This design it was our fourth place Winner it won fifty dollars which is Fantastic and definitely congratulations To all the winners so far all right so Now I want to go on to our first place Winner and this was Mike triff he won First place he got our largest cash Prize and there's no question why he won Because this design is ultra clean it Looks super professional and if you were Just to compare the hero section from The original you can see how much of an Improvement it was from the old website To what Mike came up with and so looking At things right off the bat I really Love the hero section A lot has Accomplished here from a little bit of Social proof we've got our made in Texas Icon we've got a couple images and then Really good hierarchy between the font Sizes and the call to action button you Know exactly what you're supposed to Read first what you're supposed to read Second and then the call to action Button is large and it's telling you Where this is going to take you once you Click this it's going to bring you down To the form which does take up a lot of Space and so I do agree with the Decision to have a button that slides You down there now that is one thing That some of the past submissions were

Missing is a good call to action in the Hero section So I think Mike nailed it on this he's Also got another call to action up here In the top corner so I really love what He did with the form very similar to What Kara did even though it's not Color-coded it is really clear what You're what you're using this form for Right either a tenant or an owner you've Got the form here with the property type And then you've got your form submission And then I do like the image here that I Use next to the get started it's almost Like they're utilizing this image to say Hey here's here's what you're going to Look like you're going to be happy Moving in in your property so really Great job as we scroll down we've got Our review sections and I do love that He used this slightly different blue Color rather than using a really Stark Box Shadow I do think that this works Really well and then we've got another Call to action just a thin call to Action with a face here again just makes It feel really welcoming and then we've Got a section down here at the bottom That just says contact us with our Information so I do feel like oftentimes I lean more towards these really clean White space websites but that's not Necessarily why Mike won because I do Love all the other styles that were

Submitted but once something that Mike Did really well was just keeping things Really clean clear and professional Which I think in this type of Industry With Realty and Property Management That's really important people don't Want anything that's too crazy or out of The norm they want something that looks Clean succinct and professional and I Think that was definitely accomplished Here the other thing that I think was Done really nicely is there is a lot of White space but he utilized this really Light blue color he basically took the Dark brand color and lightened it up Probably the opacity is all he utilized But then it gives him the ability to Kind of break up different sections and Make it easier to consume the entire Landing page so overall fantastic job With this winning submission awesome job Mike so those are the top four Submissions and I would love for you to Dive into all the other submissions from This month's design challenge you can Drop in the comments down below letting Me know which one you think was the Winner and also if you'd like to provide Any feedback from these individuals now Now if you would like to join our next Design competition you can go to Paintpro.com to join and then once You're a member you can join as many as You want and you can win as many times
