**I appreciate all of the submissions, they are looking great. I am giving feedback and eliminating items as I go to give a clear example of the ones that are in the running.**
The focus of this site is all on the art. I am working on creating a minimal design with just enough elements to feature the art. In lieu of your typical shopping cart, I am creating a gallery style site with buy it now buttons that load a slick ajax interface for checkout offerred by e-junkie.
My vision for the site is an IKEA catalog page, highlighting the art in a gallery and pseudo living room, office, etc. as well as a large image gallery.
Due to this minimal design focused on all art, I need a logo that is memorable and creates a call for action. Buy Tampa Bay Art is the site and the idea. I plan to use the logo in print marketing and possibly clothing to spread the message.
There is a page up right now, but PLEASE DON'T go by it. I have played with multiple designs, layouts, colors, etc and have not been satisfied.
Sorry for the low contest amount, but this is more of a hobby. I will be charging a commission of 10%, but 3% goes to transaction fees. I'll be doing all site design, data entry, marketing on my own with the help of my wonderful fiancee and I'll still be in the red for quite some time....
