30 Minute Redesign: eCustom Solutions

Week 16: eCustom


In the space of 5 minutes I can identify some of the key strengths and weaknesses of this design, and sketch out a mockup.


  • The design is clean and professional
  • Coherent color-scheme
  • Legible text and menu


  • There is nothing terribly unique about the design, it’s a little generic
  • There is a lack of imagery
  • The layout feels a little rigid and square
  • The typography is a little small, making it harder to read

My Redesign

As always, I was limited by the 30 minute time-frame, but I tried to improve upon several of eCustom’s features, adding a few design flourishes and a clearer layout that promoted content over wasted space:


  • Create a more lively color-scheme
  • Improve the typography, and add a new logo design
  • Give the layout more padding and white space
  • Integrated imagery into the design

Comparing the 2 Designs:

Here is a quick comparison between the original design and my 30 minute redesign. Sure, my design could be more polished, but I believe that a lot of the basic elements have been improved upon, creating a more pleasant browsing experience.

    Pretty nice design

  2. Hahaha, it looks so much better!

    If you could fire me off the .psd for the new version of my site shown here I’d be so grateful!

  3. By the way Tom, thanks, and what is your policy regarding included images?

    I plan on integrating the forthcoming psd design with one I’ve sort of worked out on my own.

    And thanks again!

  4. This redesign is a major improvement over the current site as it looks a lot more professional and nicer to look at. If i still had my old site up, I would probably submit it and see how much you could improve it in 30 minutes.

  5. Oliver, you’re so correct.

    I can code a design given to me no problem, but I have troubles designing them you know?

    I agree, it’s a huge improvement, and I definitely have some plans for functionality with this design already.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! :)

    Damon: I’ve emailed you the .psd file.

    This redesign has really simple changes but improves the site considerably. This is a lot more visually appealing to those visiting the site and encourages them to stay for longer and potentially bringing in more business. A really nice design.
