I'd like if you can design something as sharp and professional as they do.

9. The content area of the mockup should be approximately 960px wide. The total width of the mockup should be 1200px.

10. Do NOT every use font sizes smaller than 16px or line-heights smaller than 135. We want to make it easy for visitors to read without having to squint.

********** FILE FORMAT *******
Regardless of what drawing program you use (Photoshop or Fireworks) I MUST be able to open and edit the file, its layers and elements in Fireworks CS5. Additionally, the layer names MUST be descriptive and in the same vertical order that they appear down the mockup. Here's a sample of how the layers were organized for another mockup:

******** SUMMARY *******
I need you to create a CLIENT-READY mockup. You're the artist so feel free to be creative but make sure the final product is consistent with all of today's web design best practices. It should be as complete as possible. Use your imagination. Suggest ideas you feel will be effective. Design a site you'd be proud to call your own. Again, if you do a good job, I'll have many more projects for you.

*******  FOOTNOTE ********
Upon project completion, if you post anything about this website mockup to your Odesk and/or personal design portfolio, that’s fine with us. But you MUST refrain from mentioning the specific business name. But you can mention that is was a "website design for [insert industry here]".
