Hello, we have a store called 'The French Knot' which is a needlepoint & framing store located in Raleigh, NC. We currently do not have a website, so there will be no content to copy; so making up some random text to fill in the website will be fine for now.

We just need a one page design of the home page, and I will create the other pages based off of that.

We do have a logo, you can find that logo here: http://imagenerd.com/uploads/tfklogouPs6.jpg

You don't have to base your website colors off of the logo colors, because I can easily change the blue to a different color, so I am open for any ideas you may have.

If you look on Google, there are a ton of needlepoint websites which just have a terrible design. I haven't seen ONE which has a decent design; so we would like to stand out and have a quality, professional design.

I like how needlepoint.com has a nice image effect of their store, I would like something like that done with our pictures of the store, which I will give you. I don't want it as big though, I don't want that to be the main focus.

On the home page, we would like to have a section for 'About Us', so there will be no navigation for it. We would also like a small section for 'Sign up to our Newsletter' with an input box so they can enter their e-mail address.

Here is a zip file of the store pictures:

We don't want them all on the home page, because we don't want it to be too image heavy. Use one or two, or however many, and feel free to use some image effects to them so they aren't just the plain image.

--------------------------------------------------

Here is a phone number that should be displayed somewhere on the home page, maybe somewhere in the header:

919-782-2001

 

So there isn't going to be much content on any of these pages, this is just to give basic information and pictures about our store, and the main work is going to be done on the online store, which will have a big shopping cart, etc. That is going to be done using a Shopping Cart CMS, so it will be different design formats but I will skin the CMS based on the winning design.

Like, needlepoint.com, they have a basic website on the home page, and they have a complex store with a different format on the "Online Store" page. That is what we are going to do, but you are just designing the home page.

There won't be too much on it, so that is why this is only a $200 contest. Please only experienced designers enter this, we need a very professional and appealing website.

Let's be the first needlepoint website with a GREAT design!

I'm here for any questions, Good luck!
