Been really loving Lynda.com, but hate their site layout. This is something pretty different than what they have, which is basically just the interface itself. I designed a concept for a splash or homepage for new customers specifically.
Check out the real pixels, and keep in mind this is a WIP and just for fun.

Very nice and cleaner than the current Lynda's site, not sure why you use orange as the color instead of yellow. I also think that you eliminate some important parts on their home page, oh yeah still WIP :)
@Bluroon Thanks! You're certainly right. Definitely leaving some stuff off. This would theoretically have a footer as well. I just hadn't designed it just yet.
I went with orange purely out of choice. The yellow they use was pretty dissatisfying to the eye in my opinion, so I opted for something different when I couldn't find a yellow that I enjoyed.
A clean, neat layout... But then the page looks very minimal for the amount of content that they have. Not sure how you planned the interactions. Clever interactions can still make this work efficiently...
@Bharat KV , Good points indeed, However, this is meant for users who are new to Lynda. The current lander is clustered and overwhelming. This serves to make the experience lightweight and engaging at first. Theoretically, after a user logs in, they would be introduced to the massive amounts of content. This page I designed is just to give them a brief and quick overview of the product/service offering. The current lander has no intro, no explanation, etc.
This is not meant to replace Lynda's design, but rather its meant to supplement it/act as a gateway.
Got it... perfecto :)
I really like the simplicity of it. Nice work!
While it is definitely aesthetically pleasing I don't know how well it would work in the real world. It seems to be missing some stuff that would actually inform the site visitor of why they are on the site.
Great idea with the search box, but what am I supposed to type in there? If I want to learn about cooking and type that in, what happens?
As mentioned the rest of the design just seems a little bare considering all of the great content Lynda has produced over the years. Very nice first, quick stab at it though!
