MC Design got their new web page design by running a design contest:
2008 Redesign For Parts Distributor Website
Check out MC Design's Web page design contest…
We need a website design for an automotive/industrial parts and fasteners distributor – we are talking nuts, bolts, screws, washers, etc – so we’re not looking for a ‘car’ theme by any means. We want a clean, professional, web 2.0 design for the main page of their online store.
What's your vision?
A client of ours needs a completely updated design for their outdated website. We are looking to convey: professional, reputable, web 2.0 company that you can feel confident doing business with on the web. I’m looking for extreme user-friendliness, cutting-edge, super clean and slick, without being ‘over-the-top’. It should make a person say “wow” when they open the page, while having subtle variations of layers and colors – plastic, gradients, subtle shadowing are all acceptable – no high-gloss or high-contrast. The design will need to incorporate a menu system to accommodate 18 product categories, and an area highlighting a select number of items available for sale on the website. The client also has an Amazon store, so this site should outshine that one in sophistication. See the section below for a complete list of required items for the layout.
The following items are required in the layout: - Quick Search Box- The following text must be included: Company Name: Parts Place, Distributor of Automotive and Industrial Parts, “Fitting Your Needs Since 1980”, Automotive - Industrial, Over 14,000 Items in Stock, Low Prices, Same Day Shipping, 100% Customer Satisfaction, No Minimum Order, Free Shipping on Orders $80.00 & Above - Navigation menu containing:All Products, 3M Automotive Products, Abrasives & Shop Supplies, Assortments & Storage Cabinetry, Automotive Clips & Fasteners, Bolts & Cap Screws, Chemicals, Lubricants & Paints, Chrome Fasteners, Cutting Tools, Electrical Products, Fleet Repair & Maintenance, Hex Nuts & Washers, Hoses Tubing & Fittings, Metric Standard Hardware, Permatex, Automotive Products, Screws (Machine & Sheet Metal), Stainless & Non-Ferrous, Tire & Wheel Products - High Profile Links to:Special Services, New Items, Internet Specials, Customer Login, Download Catalogs, Quick Order Pad, View Cart, “Check out our all new 2008 CD Catalog!”, Subscribe to our company newsletter - Highlight Products AreaAutomotive Clips & Fasteners, Bolts & Cap Screws, Chrome Fasteners, Stainless & Non-Ferrous - Logos for the following:Comodo Trust Certificate, VISA / Mastercard, PayPal Checkout, UPS, FedEx, Better Business Bureau Seal, Amazon.com - Layout must include spaces for: Company Address, Phone/Fax/TollFree/Email, Terms & Conditions - Deliverable in PSD or similar format - Any specialized fonts used must be either specified or supplied with deliverable
