Design - New website design wanted for ProTelescope.com -- with more work for the winner
Organization name ProTelescope.com -- with more work for the winner Description of the organization and its target audience IMPORTANT NOTE: As of July 1, 2012: Our area in Washington DC, USA experience massive thunderstorms on Friday night. About 1 million homes and business in our area have no electricity due to trees falling everywhere. We have no power in either of our two offices, and I personally have no power at home. This may cause a delay in providing you with feedback as we are limited to working from libraries, Starbucks and other public places that have power and internet. Thanks, Andrew We operate ProTelescope.com. Our main products are, of course, telescopes used for stargazing and astronomy. We carry "manually" controlled telescopes, as well as fully automatic computer controlled telescopes, some of which have on-board GPS systems. Most of our telescopes are for night-use, but some are really primarily for day-use as spotting scopes and for viewing wildlife and scenery. Our customers are mostly (a) beginners and (b) gift givers. Beginners like our site because we offer complete telescope packages at low prices. We also offer fairly extensive explanatory materials on what are good telescopes to buy. The bulk of our gift business happens in the Christmas season. Many of our customers are women buying telescope gifts for their boyfriends / husbands. We also have many customers buying telescopes for their children or grandchildren -- school age through university. We also have adult buying gift givers -- buying telescopes as presents for employees/bosses and friends/colleagues Industry Retail Existing website to reference ProTelescope.com Number of pages needed 2 Page descriptions Design two pages: the home page and product detail page for a newly envisioned ProTelescope.com website. We expect to engage the winner to produce layouts for 2-5 additional pages and possibly additional graphics and design work. We have attached a very detailed design brief, as well as detailed wireframes showing a proposed outline for our new site. We also have supplied some photography, logo, artwork and buttons. Style/theme ideas for the website None specified. What to avoid We are unlikely to approve a black or dark themed website. But you're the design expert, not us! Inspirational websites www.glowuniverse.com This is our own website. So we like much of the layout and functionality. We also think there are lots of sophisticated design elements that give the site real professional polish. We have more inspiring sites in our design brief. Notes Please review our design brief and materials. We've included our "wireframes" as a Powerpoint document (how it was created) and as a JPG graphic.
