How shawn_ca started their web page design journey

Company name

Daily Variance

Overview

I am an author who specializes in writing poker books. My goal is to build a publishing company that sells poker books, poker ebooks, and poker software.

I like a sleek vibrant theme but at the same time, have a personal touch with my readers through a blog. This is really important. A sample of a blog style that I like is http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The target audience is mostly poker players. Some visit the site to learn about books and poker software. Some visit the site to read my blog. Some visit our forums. I want to create a community where my readers can discuss any topics.

One important note is to not make cheesy poker site designs. I do not want that. I want a design that reflects a professional publishing company.

Requirements

I want an e-commerce design.

You don't need to provide the code (PHP, but will expect basic HTML of the design). I will get a developer to take care of it.

I want the site to have a professional feel. I also want a clean design.

I want it to have a look of an online publishing store.

I want to have a shopping cart since it is an online store.

I like having a red and black theme.

I want to have a forum.

I want a blog network where I can blog and my visitors can create blogs too if they like.

I want a newsletter subscriber option. As well as links to Facebook, RSS feed, and Twitter.

I want a menu composed of blog, forum, books, poker tools, videos, and about us. Basically, I want to sell books/software.

I will likely add more categories down the future so keep in that mind.

I want to have a small box on the main page where I can put a short video or some type of flash animation.

I want to have the word support and a 1-800-357-6075 at the top.

I want to have a place for the "Live Support" icon at the top.

One important note is do not make cheesy poker site designs. I do not want that. I want a design that reflects a professional publishing company.

Attached is the .psd logo file. You may change the font or color so that it fits your overall design for the website.
