Our site is brand new and is currently under development (though a very basic version of the site with a “stock” template is currently up and running). As part of the development process, we are launching a complete redesign of the site.
The first step of our site redesign is to build a page template that displays all mall locations for a particular store in a particular state. So if you wanted to see a list of all of the Sunglass Hut stores in California malls, this page should give you everything you need to know and more.
Please see the attached mock-up (PDF) to see what content we are looking to show for this page.
We are looking for someone to review the different content sections and create a template that we can use across the site that incorporates all of this content in a user-friendly, visually appealing way. We are open to suggestions on how best to do this.
Please don't pay much attention to the formatting of the boxes/outlines as they are just there to separate the content. We want any designer looking at this to think about how best to separate this data (e.g. it may be boxes but it may be lines or shading or something else).
The most important thing is that we don't want it to just look like a bunch of monotone, boring text. Because we have the same categories of info on every page, it is a good opportunity to lay everything out in an interesting way. Generally, we believe that our mock-up (as well as the current version of our website) has too much white space, so we’d appreciate the design of this page template to have more visual cues to separate out the different bits of content.
For the header section, please note that the layout is just our best guess. Of course, we do want to incorporate all of the elements that are currently in place (i.e. logo, tagline, 728 x 90 ad unit, navigation bar, breadcrumbs), but these can be rearranged as you see fit.
Regarding the logo, we do have a current version on our site, but please ignore it completely. We plan on designing the logo around the web site rather than the other way around. We are not asking you to create a logo for this project. Instead, you can use a placeholder with just the basic text of the company name and the tagline, and then we will later create a custom logo that matches your site design.
If you can add a Facebook icon in the header, please do so (if you think it improves the overall design).
For the content section, we do want to incorporate each particular piece that is present (and with the same text), and we do want to keep the same basic structure and flow. However, you should consider everything else to be up to your imagination: colors, shading, fonts, sizing, framing, icons, etc. The 728x90 ad block on the bottom of the page should might need to be centered in the page in order to fit—feel free to move this around.
For the footer section, we’d like to include the elements shown, but you can organize them however you see fit.
Any extra design elements that you think would be visually appealing are welcome. We left the design pretty bare-bones, so feel free to add design flair as you see fit. We just don’t want things to be too busy/messy though, since the information itself is what matters most.
