We're picturing a fixed-width (for 1024 sized screens) layout, with a header area at the top for logo, banner image, and horizontal menu. Two columns for Content + Sidebar under that, with a full-width footer at the bottom. That's just our initial idea - if you come up with something better, we're open to it.
We'll need something visually appealing, with a well-organised layout to display our information/content.
Main navigation bar will have:
- Our Coffee
- Our Customers
- The Team
- Contact Us
The sidebar will include a Facebook badge, e-newsletter subscription fields (name and email address), and possibly our twitter feed showing the latest 2-3 tweets.
We'll include a testimonial, and a section for locating a store that sells the coffee.
We may also want promotional banners/buttons to facilitate special events marketing.
The content column should have the page heading, followed by text including bullet points, links, and floating images.
The footer should include some links and a copyright notice.
Whilst we like the rich, dark feel of many coffee sites, we have a preference for our text to be black on a white background.
The menu will have a few top-level items, with dropdown options available. Your entry should show what an expanded dropdown looks like.
