How rich1231 started their web page design journey
Lumitunes.co.uk is a Magento based e-commerce site selling hi-tech goods to a discerning audience in a highly competitive environment. Currently the inventory is relatively narrow selling lighting products, audio equipment and iphone/ipad accessories but there is significant scope for this to expand into a number of related markets
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our customer base specifically is 18-40 year old men and women who are relatively large spenders on technical products/gadgets. They could be looking for anything from a simple telephone/tablet accessory to a whole home multiroom audio system.
The first page of the store should be eyecatching, simply laid out, fun and professional. We don’t like designs which look like linear grid based stores. We don’t want to look like every other magento store essentially but we still want to look like a store! The corporate colours come from the logo which black background with a white and orange logo. This should be seen as the restricted colour palette with few deviations.
Number of pages
We are looking for a home page design, a product listing design and a product detail design all of which should be cohesive with each other and contribute to a flowing design that should not look templated yet should be able to be coded relatively easily within the Magento framework. The landing page need not be the first page of the shop but there needs to be cohesion between the site home and the shop home in terms of design.
