a-mer11 got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Need a wonderful web design
Check out a-mer11's Web page design contest…
The web site will be an online representation of our natural stone trading firm Amer Stones based in Ankara, Turkey. The site will provide information about the company, as well as will include a catalog of our current offerings of natural stone including marble in blocks, slabs, and tiles. The target audience is manufacturing companies, construction companies, stone resellers to end customers. This specific project only focuses on the most important pages of the site including the home page, the catalog page that contains product listings, and detailed product page.
www.amerstones.com - this is just a temporary landing page.
It is very important for the design to accommodate both major media types: personal computers and smart phones. Note that we do not want a separate design for mobile, but we want a flexible design that will work both equally well for laptops and phones. To achieve this goal, we will prefer a parallax-like web design, in which content is organized vertically, and is centered horizontally on the page. We do not require the parallax effect per se, but we like mobile-friendly page layout that normally comes with such effect. For examples of web sites that are vertically organized, see http://www.awwwards.com/websites/parallax/ Even though we look for a design that will work for both desktop and mobile, we are open to consider certain design elements such as menu, to be separately designed for desktop and mobile. You are free to propose your visual theme, but it will need to provide a good representation for our business and merchandise online. The natural stone we trade is used in upscale development projects such as five star hotels and resorts, private residences, and business centers. A sense of quality, luxurious treatment, and attention to detail are often a major part of the theme of such projects, and we want the web site design to reproduce these for our visitors. For your reference and inspiration, we have included images of some of the construction projects our customers have completed using our stone. Additionally we wiill ask you to use our logo, which is attached to this application (amerstones-logo.jpg), and can also be seen on our currently landing page at www.amerstones.com. Finally, we ask you to refrain from using proprietary fonts that may not be available on all platforms. You are free to use Google Fonts (http://www.google.com/fonts), or any other fonts that do not require a paid license. For example, we like the font from: http://www.google.com/hangouts/
We have attached the drawings of page layouts, which should give a good idea of what needs to be on each page. Page descriptions follow. Home page Home page layout is attached in amerstones-home.pdf. Functionality, from top to bottom: * A header with the logo, the menu, and the language selector. The header needs to be the same for all pages. Note that we included separate shots for mobile with a different menu. * A slideshow of large banners that will be configurable by our site administrator. We have attached sampled images (slideshow-banner-1.jpg, slideshow-banner-2.jpg) that we may choose to use for banners. Please don’t design the contents of the banner, but use one of the images we attached in your design. * Featured products section where products can be scrolled using side arrows on desktop, and with a sliding gesture on mobile. * Brand messages, each with its icon like on ditto.com (on their home page, see the block with “free shipping”, “free returns”, etc. Please make sure you design icon for brand messages. The brand messages are: Quality products. We carefully control each step of stone production: block quality, stone selection, perfect slab thickness, uniform epoxy coating, equable polishing. We also pay a lot of attention to stone packaging. Expert services. Need to select blocks or slabs or control loading in a factory/quarry/port? You can separately order our expert services. Our professionals will visit the location you specify, will perform expert evaluation and stone selection or other help you need, and will provide you with a full technical report about the product and status of the product loading. Engineering services. We will perform stone installation and all measurements at your construction site within Turkey or abroad. * A footer that will be shared by all pages. Catalog page Catalog page lists all products we offer. The layout is attached in amerstones-catalog.pdf. Functionality (from top to bottom): * Header (same as on home page) * Products organized in a grid. This page needs to be very clean, for inspiration see antolini.com. In your designs, please use the attached sample images of products (catalog-product-1.jpg, catalog-product-2.jpg, catalog-product-3.jpg). * Pagination bar * Footer (same as on home page) Product page Product page contains details about a specific product. A product page opens when a user clicks a product in a catalog page. The layout is attached in amerstones-product.pdf. Functionality (from top to bottom): * Header * Stone close up view. Please use the attached image (product-closeup.jpg) in your design. * Stone description section. Please use the following texts in your design: Blocks and slabs vary in appearance and dimension. As this is natural stone, all pictures are a rough guide. . * Three more images of the product. Use attached images in your design: product-extra-1.jpg, product-extra-2.jpg, product-extra-3.jpg. * Technical parameters of the stone. Use the information in the attached file product-specs.txt in your design. * Footer
What to avoid
It is important to attain a balance between visuals and utility, so please refrain from leaning too much to one side or the other. We want our web site to be beautiful, but visuals should not be in the way of a visitor looking to find a specific stone. And, conversely, the site should not be excessively utilitarian.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at $799.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
a-mer11 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
