Company Details: at [url removed, login to view] we offer custom and stock auto decals. These are for any type of auto, truck, car and motorcycle etc. Our business is selling quality vinyl decals at low prices. We are now branching out onto the Internet, and wish to open up an online / retail shop. The site will be using a shopping cart backend (in this case Zen Cart). We will primarily need three (4) page templates redesigned - a Main Page template, a Product Description Page template, Sub Category Page. Our audience will be adult, age range 18 through early 40s, with the rough median age most probably being late 20s / early 30s.
Examples: There are really few online shopping sites we like. Among these are: [url removed, login to view] & [url removed, login to view] for the product info pages. We like [url removed, login to view] for the css rounded corners. These are merely very rough ideas. We're open with respect to design. This site does have a logo. However, a nice graphic in the site header that goes with the site theme (i.e. online merchandise) would be great!
Colors: No real color preferences. However for this site, we'd prefer that blue is not used, or is used minimally (just so many sites using that color primarily!). As we are selling decals for personal and professional use, we'd like that the colors NOT be overpowering. Also, we will have both male and female shoppers, so the color palette should be fairly "gender neutral" (or at the very least not be gender exclusive).
Style: We are looking for: 1) "Clean" design - one that is not overly cluttered or busy. 2) Ease of navigation for the average computer user is very important. 3) Subtlety - the design should complement, not compete with, the goods being presented. "Class" and "taste" are key here. 4) Fast-loading - the site cannot be "graphics heavy". Also, as a plus, we'd like to see a wee bit of "fun" in the design without being juvenile or kiddish.
Comments: I'm very open to ideas, suggestions, and recommendations by the designers. I'm far from being an expert in this area. I can be reached at Eggeman[at][url removed, login to view] If all goes well I will need to also have copyright work, rewrites done for SEFU's and work done to the forms (e.g. contact us, returns form, terms etc.) not part of this project would for future development. Please Put Bill in all answers to this request if you don’t you will not get the job. I need to make my request was understood before I waste my time contacting people. Since this project is medium skill requirements I do not feel it should take more then a day or two so I will not even entertain any proposals that are for longer then 7 days. This work will need to be done on your server not mine. I would like to be supplied a link so I can see its progress. Once the job has been completed you will receive full payment as I have a trust issue and will not release any money before I can preview a finished product on your server. You will NEED TO BE FAMILIAR WITH ZEN CART!!! AND IT’S TEMPLATE OVER RIDES.
