**This porject will consist of a maximum of 10 pages.**
This is a web site design project in a very competitive market filled with high quality visual design and user-friendly navigation.
We are looking for design proposals for our web site. Visual appeal and overall style are the deliverables. Specifically, we are looking for design direction for colour schemes, fonts, and overall look and feel of the site. Photographs and images will play an important part in the design, to showcase and highlight our tile products in an artistic and attention grabbing way.
We do not currently have a website and the technical structure and elements of the web design will finalized at a future date. Since the site map has not been finalized, we are looking to receive design submissions for a few pages to get a feel for the proposed design. We would like to see homepage concepts as well as a few inside pages (mockups of About, News, and the Catalogue page). We are very open to creative ideas, but above all else it is important that the site is clean, easy to navigate, and visually appealing.
The current colours in the logo are flexible and we are open to designs with the logo either in different colours or in a single tone. The logo itself however, is to remain as is.
Here are a few of the sites that we have reviewed.
Petra Antiqua: http://www.petraantiqua.com/eng/
This was the stand out design winner in our market analysis. The photos do highlight tile, but do so in a very abstract way. These are not the common living room or kitchen layouts. The keys for us were to splash visual appeal and spark some curiosity. A 'what is that?' feeling coerces the viewer to click and find out more.
Walker Zanger: http://www.walkerzanger.com/
This is an attractive site, noted here for some design strength.
Pental Granite & Marble: http://www.pentalonline.com/
This is a competitor in a local market.
Emser Tile: http://www.emser.com/
Also note the high functionality; the menu structure is presented on the top level page. Two clicks only to get into a detailed product page.
Armstrong Flooring: http://www.armstrong.com/flooring/products/laminate
This is my choice for stand out catalogue functionality. I consider this a technical design goal. This links drill down 'two clicks deep' in their site.
Providing quality materials that give inspiration to great design.
First impressions on our website should be
Classy, artistic, intriguing, elegant
Additional comments for the designers
Our site needs to be well received by people that live and breath good design. Get creative please, we would like to make a splash with this.
