GroundStyle.com is an online clothing retailer, in need of a new fresh killer design for the onlineshop http://www.groundstyle.com.
page width must be designed in 955 pixels width.
We have three categories, mens, womens and accessories.
Furthermore, e.g. mens can be divded into two categories, being fashion clothing and streetwear/hip-hop clothing. We like the product navigation to be in top of page, with fold-down/mouse over menu.
The shop is and will be based on oscommerce. In the current live store you can see the elements we currently have, which will also need to be included in the new design. You can of course re-design and rearrange as you like. (please do)
We need the following page redesigned initially
index page/front page:
further in the process we need the basic pages as described in brief..
Our logo can be downloaded here:
UDPATE TO ALL DESIGNERS:
thanks so much for the work you have done so far.
Contest extended and now GUARENTEED!
We are entering the last days of the competition, and have the following inputs to the designers who have shown us interesting work/ideas so far, as well as any new designers willing to participate..
For your design, please consider making your layout suggestion using pictures already found on our website http://www.groundstyle.com
We like to have category navigation in the header. Navigation should be very simple/Easy and intuitive.
We prefer not to have top-pro model pictures (Stock photos) used, as we will not be able to renew this so often, as we will with actual product pictures from our shop
Remember the focus of the design must be to SELL PRODUCTS.. please think this into the design..
We like if possible, to have newsletter signup in top of page.. (not absolute requirement)
Search field should be in top of page..easy to find for customers...
For inspiration you can also take a look at these html pages we have designed at a earlier stage..(mostly created to test new top navigation...)
Furthermore, if you look at http://www.shakk.dk to product listings and product info, we consider to use this kind of picture sizes to improove focus on the products..
Based on a PM from a designer, here is the meaning of the RATINGS we give designs:
1 star - Wrong direction, start over again with something completely different. Please also read the summary, probably the design does not quite meet the requirements in the sumary/brief.
2 star - some elements I like
3 star - getting closer but need revisions or a different take on your design
4 star - design is being considered
5 star - made the final cut! Amoungst the top of the class.
If we rate the design 1 star, please read the summary and brief again, and then submit your design.
