lindsay 4 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Help Launch new Online store specializing in Balls
Check out lindsay 4's Web page design contest…
Games & Recreational
This will be our Online Store that will be selling all kinds of balls, from Sports balls, Novelty item balls, Confectionery balls, and the likes, which will primary target Australian customers, but should be ready to serve other countries as well, including the Europe, North America, Asia, and other parts of the world. It would be highly appreciated if the Design will be a direct drop-in replacement to the default Magento template that the site currently is on. The primary site will then be: http://Balls-Direct.com.au but the same Magento instance is already available here: http://ballsdirect.com/ (the above setup will be changed after Launching) We still do not have a Logo for it, so please design a compelling one that will look simple with just a couple of colors, that will be easy for users to associate the Brand to the Company. The same logo should also look modern and somehow similar in design to the HTML5/CSS3 logo, with flat Metro effect. It should also be printable on white or black t-shirts, and so on. Please give it a little thought and try to be more Creative on this somehow :) as this will permanently represent our company in the future. Thank you so much! Edits: ------- Please add a nice array of Social Media buttons somewhere on the page. This is mostly found at the footer :) http://screencast.com/t/EplAtP7XAx Another list of sites that we like, which you can get inspirations from: http://www.gaiam.com/ http://www.mintpayments.com/
We expect the web design to be highly Sporty and having a sense of "fun" for users to be "mesmerized" (somehow) and leave a positive impression on them so they can perhaps recommend it to their friends, while they keep coming back, as well, etc... Here are some example websites we can give you, for you to somehow get inspirations from: http://www.sherrin.com.au (we like the gradient-effect of the bg:) http://www.steeden.com.au http://doghouse.agency/article/10-famous-magento-based-websites Please include a "chat box" example on the lower-right hand side, as we will add Live Support Personnels 24/7 to assist users on the website. Please have a more "organized" color scheme, so we can just use them across different pages of the site. Please feel free to include webfonts in your package, which you think will significantly boost the site's overall user-experience and have that "distinctive" look and feel of the (then) site's familiarity and ease of use (UI / UX magic --> you;). Checkout http://www.accenture.com/ and their use of a specific "signature font" across their entire site-- we would like to have that effect to some extent, but don't exaggerate it too much. Please keep the font's usage to be more "consistent" --minding to use the correct font for the right type of content: inside "paragraphs" vs a different font for headers (for example); and keep the pattern uniform across the board. Modern HTML5/iOS-type/Clean/Grouped/Metro-style "type" of a theme would be absolutely great :) So, we hope this would be a great collaboration effort between you and our team, so we can perhaps talk more about the possibility of future web-theming partnerships, among other things. ;) Please feel free to install Magento with its Sample Data on your local server so you can see the other CMS pages, including the User Info page, Product Details page, Check-out page, etc --they should have similar color coordination and font-faces, all over the site.
Homepage: - Hero banner (featured items) - Collapsible (cabinet) menu system that's Responsive and mobile-ready we currently have 6 Categories but this may grow over time, so: http://screencast.com/t/kcIdCiPNxc2 - Artistic and Functional design - Additional panel when ordering items Our mockup of this idea: https://moqups.com/mantz/IObaEPLF Further improve the design if the mockup is what you want to follow. Recommendation is to suggest and propose a better Design-solution (think: "better User-eXperience") that does not make use of two menu dropdowns. Must be a Responsive Design. Think: Mobile first. Final Output must be a Magento Theme.
What to avoid
free-for-all; just make sure to make it look professional and sporty at the same time.
