For now we just want a HOMEPAGE. Once we have selected a WINNER, we will ask the WINNER to DESIGN at least THREE MORE pages.
The main goal for the Homepage is to build a great first impression, establish us as a stylish and quality brand. And make visitors want to find out more about our products by clicking to inside pages.
Below are the design elements, sections, links and icons that we need on the homepage.
A. Main Navigation
(1) Collection - design a drop down menu for sub-categories which includes images and description)
(2) Where to Buy
(3) About Us
(4) Contact Us
B. Secondary Navigation
(2) Shopping Cart (this will only show if logged in, so please account for its placement and spacing)
*Note for A & B - Header should be "dockable". So even though the Homepage may not need the header to shrink and dock because the page is not long, please include a design to show how the Main and Secondary navs will shrink and dock if the user scrolls down the page.
C. Search field or box - we want the search box to have a cool and interesting design.
D. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Contact Us icons - either as part of header or floating tabs on the side, or if you have other interesting ideas.
E. *(Optional) Featured Collections or Products - We don't want the Homepage to look like an online store, so this may not be a good idea. But if you can create a design to show 3-4 Featured Collections on the Homepage, and not make it look like a regular online store, then please include it in your design.
F. Footer - should have the following elements:
(1) About Us - brief description that can be truncated, with ...read more that will link to the actual About Us page.
(2) Collection - show all of the sub-categories
(3) Information Center - show the following links
- About Us
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Terms & Conditions
- Shipping & Returns
(4) Our Address
11015 Main Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(5) Newsletter Subscribe - do a cool looking field with a cool button or icon.
