Grabittoday.com is an ecommerce website where just one product is featured on the site for sale each day. At 12pm noon each day the product will change to a new one. Usually, products will be electrical items like TVs, ipods etc, but we also have some plans to innovate on the types of products on offer. Most days (in fact, every day) the products will be on offer at a heavy discount.
So thats what the sites about, what about the design?
The logo needs to have the words grabittoday.com. Not looking for an image to go with the design, just needs to be fun, good colours with a designers touch, and inspire people to want to 'grab it today'. You choose the colours etc, just make it look good.
As for the one page design, the site needs to very prominently feature an image of one product and its price, and the amount its discounted by if relevant. You need to look at woot.com, catchoftheday.com.au and zazz.com.au to get a feel for what these sites are like ... and then make me something better.
There needs to be features such as a clear 'buy now' button (or a Grab it Now! button) and the social feature on woot.com is a definite must. By this i mean their 'discussions on todays woot' feature, grabittoday.com needs something like that but better. It should be comments with the ability to retweet, or cotweet, or something.
There needs to be a text area where a blurb will be written about the product, and it could be a large area as it may include product specifications, so the site may have to scroll down past the fold quite a bit.
Thats its i think. There will be follow on work to the winner for design of the rest of the site (checkout pages, about us pages etc), and if you're good i have a dozen other projects you could work on.
Please monitor the comments section of this contest as if there are any changes i will announce them there. Feel free to ask me any questions you have about anything. Enjoy, and i look forward to seeing what the 99designs crowd comes up with.
