We have a logo but it is not quite ready.
The challenge is to have these colors and structural design yet have the artists own art work be the main focus. The page will be the introduction that is very strong looking with my picture (to be supplied later), artist bio etc. To the left we will have a list of items that can be clicked on (that takes the viewer to another page) that has the options of abstract, figures, photos, prints, misc. and gift cards. When they click on the choice it then pulls up the many examples of art for sale in that category with the size, medium, price etc.
The home page needs to be very professional, be able to draw the visitor in and encourage them to look through the pieces of art available for sale on the site without being too pushy or salesy.
The page should also contain the usual web page elements such as contact, terms etc as well as payments icons eg -Certification (Verified by Visa, Mastercard SecurePage, etc) and a Search bar.
The sites colours should be rich and luxurious like umbers, gold, maroon, yet have a light and airy look.
Other links that need to be included somewhere on the page-
Terms and Conditions, Privacy, Return-policy, Company information
My Account: Login, Shopping-Cart, Wish-List
Order: Shipping, Methods of payment,
We do not want to limit designers too much so please just use your flair and design how you like, just try to meet the basic design specs we have written above.
Please note that because we are using Joomla, the menu links and Nav bar etc will be dynamic so please try to design with this in mind
Good Luck, we cant wait to see your designs!!
