How fujiarts started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are the largest online dealer of antique Japanese woodblock prints in the world and have customers all across the globe. We offer a wide range of prints to appeal to any price point - from $50 to $5,000 - and offer prices below what buyers will find in retail galleries. We sell to dealers, gallery owners, collectors, scholars, and hobbyists. We want to continue to target a worldly, international and domestic art buyer with a slick sophisticated website.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We're not looking for any huge overhaul, but the website was designed almost 10 years ago. So, we're looking to update and freshen the look of the website and bring it into a more modern and contemporary look.
The green has become part of our brand, but we'd like to greatly de-emphasize it while not abandoning the association that customers have with the color. It is important to maintain the consistency of our known brand.
We're looking to have a graphic, clean, and familiar webpage for our customers. We have many older customers and we don't want for them to be lost by the change.
We like the rotating item in the "featured items" area and would like to maintain something like that. The size could change, or not, position could change, or not. We feel that the rotational system seems a bit antiquated and there might be a different way of providing that movement.
The goal of the updated home page will be generally the same as our current page. We would like to see attractive display of our products to draw customers in, clear navigation, and a welcoming place for those unfamiliar with our products. We are generally happy with the elements we've included on our current front page, but would like to see more updated ways for them to be included and displayed.
What to avoid
We are satisfied with the infrastructure and programming on the website and simply plan on laying a new look over the existing programming. We have a perl programmed, tables based website and our new design should work within those parameters.
