An exceptionally talented designer - and a pleasure to work with.
How Salim R started their web page design journey
Hadiya is the Arabic word for Gift. Our company has the ambition to become the reference online gift store in France and in Europe for modern Muslim families. The three axes of our development are: promotion of generosity, unique buying experience, and top customer service level. The concept is declined into a range of products that include traditional gifts and more innovative packages that include personalized gifts and gift boxes. Gifts are so important to share love and respect, we have to encourage people to offer gifts to all close-bys and relatives !
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Hadiya targets the whole Muslim community in France and in Europe but consumers are more likely to be in the 20-40 age group. Teenagers and elderly people will be targeted as secondary consumer niches. We want something fresh and attractive !
We are looking for an original, elegant and user-friendly design. The two key directions for work are
-GIFT STORE: use ribbons, gift boxes, hearts or whatever icons and self-meaning drawings
-BEDOUIN STYLE : we have thought about drawing dunes in the top and bottom banners, and use pictures and symbols that remind of deserts and nomadic life for the background (shaded profiles of camels, palm trees and Bedouins –use oriental fonts )
We know it is not that easy to combine both but we trust your imagination and talent guys ! Reference colors are Green, gold and white (same as logo), but deviations are accepted for both colors and theme if it looks great!
See wireframe attached. We want 3 pages on the basis of the model provided (or any better proposal !). 1st attachment presents the general layout and numbers the specific elements for which we expect a separate design (29 elements). The capital letters give an idea of the different font styles we want to use. The main example we have used is the e-store http://bit.ly/eRK6rP from which we want to borrow the top dynamic menu bar (number 2a, 2b and 2c) and the central banner concept. We like the user-friendliness of http://bit.ly/mjo27 and the background of http://bit.ly/2lMhKJ. 2nd attachment shows some poor attempt of ours to anticipate final look.
Number of pages
For 1st page, please provide the design for the full bar #2 and for the boxes that appear when you point on the category (text in the left, product image in the right, box screen-wide). As for the central banner please use a combo of some of the pictures attached for your proposal.
The top, bottom and side banners (1a to 1d) should be integrated into a single background with a shaded drawing of Bedouin style such as attachment 3. Please integrate the logo attached in this background. The e-boutique is then integrated in the middle of this background to fit all screen configurations. For all boxes numbered we expect an original shape, frame & background colors+ full set of original icons.
Finally please use a specific font and if possible an Arabic font that would match it. Of course these requirements are meant as guidelines, and designs with different but original approaches will be taken into account as well! But final award will be conditional upon delivery of all individual elements requested (we'll proceed step by step to achieve the result)
Note that we are looking for design only, as we will implement the HTML/CSS ourselves. Enjoy guys!!
