How posterframes started their web page design journey
We are a poster frame company looking to launch a new website geared specifically towards selling puzzle frames.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We would like the website to have a fun, creative feel, but not too kids oriented. We are still selling our product to adults. The website is going to be targeted to users 18+ that can make online purchases via Paypal or Credit Card.
Most people who will be searching for puzzle frames have just finished putting their puzzle together, and are excited to go online and look for a puzzle frame to complete their masterpiece. We would like the website design to be clean, fun, and easy to use.
One thing we need to stress is that we are not selling puzzles. We are only selling the puzzle frames and accessories (puzzle glue, etc). You may still incorporate puzzle elements into the design (buttons, logo, etc), but don't go too crazy with it.
Number of pages
The one page we are looking to get designed is the homepage. We need a header (logo, contact information, and a place for shopping cart information such as number of items, subtotal, and shipping costs), a nav menu, and footer. The page should be no more than 1000px wide. We would also like a 3rd column on the right side (similar to our example website) where we could add additional information, specials, etc, but that can also be removed on other pages and not look bad.
http://www.posterframedepot.com - This is our current poster frame website. Our puzzle frame site will still have the frame profiles you see on that site, so you may use them in your design. The puzzle frame site will be similar to this one, except all the products will be geared towards puzzles. You may use some content from this site (such as the navigation menu items) to help you with your design.
