How dprosser 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 an ecommerce online wine shop that is looking to make wine shipping online easy and fun. We also offer wine clubs, Wine Accessories, and More. Our target audience is basically anyone interested in wine 25-50 years old.
I would like to site to be very social friendly IE Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest etc.
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 already have a home page design that we will supply the hosted link to although we are not 100% satisfied with it and are looking for other ideas looks and feel. We have a general idea of what we need to have on the homepage and where we would like certain things to be.
We would like to avoid the color red for the header and really only use it for call to action buttons. We seem to like color "427BA4" its like a slate blue.
We would like this to be ipad/tablet friendly
Redesign of homepage.
We are looking for a redesign of our homepage that represents the elegance and beauty of wine. On the other hand wine can be extremely confusing and difficult to understand and navigate, so our main "search wine by" features should be a great focus. In addition two huge revenue streams will be our wine club and our accessories portion of the site so these should also be represented loud and clear.
We would also like the homepage to be as social as possible to the up and coming generations with email sign up, instragram feed and facebook.
In addition we plan on making many videos for our wines and accessories and posting them through you tube so we are open to the idea of having "featured videos" on the home page as well
What to avoid
please try and only use the color red for "submit" "add to cart" features we would like to limit the amount of red.
I am a protectionist when it comes to alignment, i just want to make sure every think feels symmetrical.
Please review the homepage1.jpg I included also see the functionaility of the live site.
