This is been 2 years in development as I'm a graphic designer/ multimedia artist by trade. This project requires a consortium of people; a web developer that can produce Responsive web site to suit most common platforms; PC, Tablet & mobile and to put together a CMS so I can use the database for product availability to the end user, set up news letters to customers, regional postage costs based on location. Initially, UK sales only however what we agree to build must have scope to include further integration to accommodate progression as the business grows. ie more product ranges & overseas sales.
As a further example I only have T-shirts screen printed for now, but as time rolls on I'll move onto hoodies, caps, anything else I see fit to sell, so this needs to be factored into. I have minimum to medium level of HTML experience and can do some work myself, however when it come to hard coding... well, this is where you come in!
I have designed the look and feel of the website, but I'm open to change if it requires it. I appreciate that responsive designs change as it down sizes due to the end users platform. Overall I'm flexible with my design / layout. Simple drop down of products on index page, leading to a displayed large thumbnail of each T-shirts available approx 12 for now. Clicking on a T-shirt takes the end user to a more detailed page of that product with medium sized images that can be enlarged and panned upon mouse enter. To the right of the product a description and below the text is a list of available sizes in that design based on what the DB is currently holding. A list of Twitter, Pininterest, FB & G+ links so end user can publish that product accordingly on social media sites. I need to be able to manually enter stock as there will be foot sales too so DB needs to reflect this in realtime. Any sizes not in the DB needs to be greyed out & an email link in place for a request of that particular design and size.
There's a bit more, however you get the general idea what I'm after. Mainly a nice fluid working shop that utilizes all the end users inputs and recorded on the DB. Login account required for end users to they can track and see current and past orders. After we agree on a design, I can supply all the sliced images to whatever px x px you need, again... I'm just an artist, not a coder! I want to keep a hand in this as much as my skill set allows to lower the final cost of a fully working e-commerce website.
Oh, and one more thing. My range of clothing is unique. It's not shallow or cheesy designs or thoughts but the concept is offensive and rude! Not talking naked bodyparts and massive text swearing but a more suggesive way of thinking so if you're easily offended you might want to reconsider applying for this tender!
