One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - JamesNH
James was fantastic to work with. He truly internalized our design briefing including the personalities of our founding team and how we wanted to weave aspects of our culture and DNA through the logo. He took the time to think up fresh, incredibly creative design concepts. Throughout he was responsive to feedback and fun to work with. I'd highly recommend James for future projects.

How Pauljmoney started their web page design journey

Company name

Abstract Expressionism Art Gallery

Overview

My client is an artist who wishes to sell his paintings and other pieces of art online. After discussing his needs we have agreed to use the Virtuemart shopping cart on the Joomla platform. It is important to express the quality of the artist in the design and have a very professional feel. When someone enters the web site we want them to get the feeling of a high class museum, like quality art work.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Art Lovers, Art Collectors

Requirements

We would like basic design of the web page to have the look of a museum of very fine art. We want a classical looking place with the colors only (not the actual images) like the uploaded picture. Notice the contrast of dark ambers medium venetian red and bright yellows. We also like the interior design and strong images like the attached museum photo with the marble and ceiling.

Number of pages

1

Page descriptions

We have a logo but it is not quite ready.

The challenge is to have these colors and structural design yet have the artists own art work be the main focus. The page will be the introduction that is very strong looking with my picture (to be supplied later), artist bio etc. To the left we will have a list of items that can be clicked on (that takes the viewer to another page) that has the options of abstract, figures, photos, prints, misc. and gift cards. When they click on the choice it then pulls up the many examples of art for sale in that category with the size, medium, price etc.

The home page needs to be very professional, be able to draw the visitor in and encourage them to look through the pieces of art available for sale on the site without being too pushy or salesy.

The page should also contain the usual web page elements such as contact, terms etc as well as payments icons eg -Certification (Verified by Visa, Mastercard SecurePage, etc) and a Search bar.

The sites colours should be rich and luxurious like umbers, gold, maroon, yet have a light and airy look.

Other links that need to be included somewhere on the page-

Terms and Conditions, Privacy, Return-policy, Company information

My Account: Login, Shopping-Cart, Wish-List

Order: Shipping, Methods of payment,

We do not want to limit designers too much so please just use your flair and design how you like, just try to meet the basic design specs we have written above.

Please note that because we are using Joomla, the menu links and Nav bar etc will be dynamic so please try to design with this in mind

Good Luck, we cant wait to see your designs!!

Example websites

The following sites are liked for various reasons:
http://www.furthur.net/ - rich bold colours without being too overwhelming

The following sites are disliked:

http://michaellewandowski.tripod.com/ - too dark gloomy and looks unprofessional

http://www.gallery-worldwide.com/ The whole thing looks “wordy” The merry go round of revolving pictures is childish , It is not simple looking and lacks bold strong colors

http://www.lagassegallery.com/ Nice, simple easy to looks at easy to navigate. Some of the fonts is boring and small the colors of the back ground are too white and pale. It is good to high-lite the painting but the whole think looks a bit sterile
