I am looking to redesign the homepage of my website.
When I first started I only had 2-3 products and they were listed on the homepage. I have a few more products now and it doesn't suit the website to have them all on the homepage. I also have numerous more products about to come online and want to have a link on the homepage to a specific products page, rather than have a huge list going down the homepage.
I have a rough idea of what I want the homepage to look like and I have provided a basic excel spreadsheet showing this. It shows basic layout, tabs I'd like giving visitors easy links to specific pages. I have provided the text I'd like in certain areas too....so I can get an idea of it how it would look...it's not too much so was hoping you could place that text where shown.
I want it to be clear and concise and not filled with too much information. It should also be easy for them to navigate through to whatever section of the site they desire.
What to avoid
Unsual fonts which are hard to read. I like clear concise text. No really bright colours in the fore or background. I generally prefer dark/earthy colours. Whilst being open to a more creative look, I would also like the homepage to look professional...(i guess that's obvious).
I'm intent on changing the site, so will almost definitely be going with someones design. Appreciate your help.
