(Admin code added by Palmer - TY0552418)
Hello. This is my second template contest!!!
This contest is for the design of an on-line shop
for games (PC,XboX, Play Station, etc). This shop will
feature a full shopping cart, with the ability to use credit
cards (Visa, MasterCard, VeriSign SSL, etc). Everything
in the site will be loaded from a database.
I will program the html code
. I just need the whole template
with its images in photoshop (PSD) files. I will translate your
buttons and everything into greek (with my own fonts if this
is necessary), so I must have the layered PSD files.
This contest is for two (2) template pages – The "first page" and
the "product page".
Of course the top / left / right / bottom menus will be the same
in every page.
All we need is a proposal about how we should position the
various boxes of information in these pages.
Sites we like
we like this amazon-style look. It's very intuitive.
Site we DON'T like
This site is packed with information... while www.play.com
clean and professional.
Mood or tone?
Professional on-line shop, dynamic, fast loading.
My client likes round edges
!!! (3D kind style, like the
top menu buttons in www.play.com
). He really wants round edges!!!
: variation of orange!
He likes almost all the colours used in www.play.com.
White background preferably.
- fully Layered Photoshop .PSD files
- small sized version (.GIF) of the above PSD files.
(I can get those from photoshop of course)
- colour codes for everything in the site
(I can also get those from photoshop myself)
1. All the buttons must be easy for me to change. A simple text
layer in photoshop, so that I can use my Greek fonts (with the same
layer effects you have used!) for the greek version.
2. The shopping cart will be visible in every page under the
left or right menu (you can see this in www.play.com
press buy on a couple of products).
3. The "Shopping cart" button, must be slightly different from the
4. We also need all the buttons for the ordering process, after
the user presses "check out" in the shopping cart:
Remove (...product from shopping cart)
Update (...quantities in shopping cart)
Back to the shop
Next page -> (with an arrow)
<- Previous page (with an arrow)
Submit order ---> (With an arrow. Final button that completes the
ordering procedure. It must be different from the others!)
5. A login box ("username", "password" and "submit"-button) must be
present in the template...
6. Verisign, Visa and MasterCard logos must appear somewhere to denote
that they are supported/accepted by the online shop.
vs fixed width
design ??? I'm not sure! The
client gets to choose the one he likes.
8. Company name
: unknown !!! He has not decided yet. I will
provide you with this information as soon as I have it, but don't
take it into account now.
For the time being, I can only provide a stupid, bad (GIF) version
of the company's old logo. This logo will change, but you can use
this one for your proposals:
9. Please use real descriptions and photos of products in you the samples.
The client must be able to understand how the site will be.
10. Product categories are: "GAMES", "CONSOLES", "HARDWARE PARTS"
GAME sub-categories are: "PC", "XBOX", "PS2", "GAMECUBE", "GAMEBOY ADVANCED"
11. We must have ALL rights to the design when the contest is over
but the designer may use the template in his portfolio!
Please, tell me if you need any more information from
us. I can provide you with anything you need. I will
post DETAILED feedback
on EVERY submission.
