We are a U.S. based company looking for a designer to create our website. Our business and website cover two areas.
1. We do personal photos to canvas
2. We produce canvas prints of fine art and photographs
We are looking to have a website built which covers both areas.
For Personalized Photos to Canvas:
We are looking for features similar to those found at [url removed, login to view] which has an on-line facility which allows customers to upload their photos. The photos are then quality checked to screen out those images which are to low in quality to be useable. The customer is then walked through a number of choices which brings them to a simulation of what their photo would look like on canvas in the size they selected with the depth of stretcher bars selected for the gallery wrap. Finally, the selection is dumped into a shopping cart for purchase processing. So we require something similar to this websites simulation engine and customer choice flow with a shopping cart.
Fine Art and Photographs on Canvas:
The second part of our website will be offering fine art images and photographs of various subject matters printed on canvas. It will function as above with the customer being walked through a number of choices, seeing a simulation of final product and shopping cart but we will additionally require drop down menus so the customer can search for the art or photograph they want. The drop down menus will allow the customer to search through Artists, Subject Matter, Color, Art Style and Colors. You can see this type of website design by visiting [url removed, login to view]
There are three website we like to use as models
[url removed, login to view] which has the customer choice and simulation engine for personalized photos to canvas
[url removed, login to view] which has a searchable database using drop down menus for fine art and photographs
[url removed, login to view] which has an area to show testimonials of its customers
The website will need to have all the normal additonal feature found on a fully deisgned website including but not limited to You Tube videos, face book, twitter and an open ended blog, About Us, FAQ, etc.
We are open to any suggestions in terms of functionality and design. We require periodic discussion to make sure the projcect is moving ahead as planned and to make sure you design what we want and everybody is happy in the end. The final website will maintained in house and as result the design should allow our people to change images, prices, and descriptions easily. Any quotes should include cost, milestones and time frames for completion. Quality, speed, ease of use and precise functionality is the key for us as there is no room for amateurs on this job. Please review the links referenced above to get an idea of the quality we require. We will be more than happy to help in any way we can to get the project completed without any problems.
Thank you in advance for your time. Please contact me if you have any questions.
