Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is your average American adult; although we do have customers in their early twenties to elderly folks in their sixties and seventies. Our target audience are computer literate to the point where they can order tobacco online and navigate through a website.
We require that our design incorporate our logo (attached) and resemble our sketch concept. Remember, this is a Native American company, so do not use imagery that would take away from that. The imagery should be pretty easy to grasp based on the sketched concept. Here are some sites that we based our conceptual sketch off of (and that we really like; hint hint): http://www.arvorecer.com.br/, http://www.playintraffik.com/.
Here are some technical requirements:
- Conform to a 960 width for the container, however make it so the design seems to blend nicely on the left and right if the browser is wider than the container.
- We like tan colors and mountain colors, as laid out in the conceptual sketch.
- We will need a main page and a secondary page; the secondary page header area should be half the size of the main pages so it can act as a secondary page. The secondary page will not have any sidebars on the left or right, so make it so it can contain content such as: account management area, product view, FAQ page, etc... The designer of the winning design will be contracted for further work on the design so he/she can be paid to do changes and accommodations.
