What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Looking for homepage, article content page and brand detailed page
Primary goal is the try to get a people to request our magazine and provide a roadmap the help them navigate the other parts of our website such as ‘Before You Shop”,“When You Shop”, “After You Buy”, “TradeCertified”, “Comparisons”
On each page, they must be some "trigger" or icon to encourage people to click to get a copy of our magazine (Just a click a way). We have hundreds of pages of content, so the design needs to be clean and straightforward. Example an be found here: http://www.spasearch.org/shell.php
We have pages where a user can learn more about the brand. you can see an example at the following address. Please use the same information shown, but the design can be changed substantially.
WELCOME DESIGNERS. I am looking for a website that is very straightforward and easy to navigate. Very clean links, significant white space, but packs a punch beyond the 1st page. This site has more than 500 pages of content so the navigation needs to be great. The user always needs to know where they are on the site. Our current site is fantastic for SEO, but is terrible to navigate and extremely outdated.
Overall I want the new site to more closely reflect the design and layout of our magazines. You can see a digtial edition here. http://tinyurl.com/6wm34j
To obtain the address of email/mailing address of a person to get a trial issue of our spasearch magazine. Significant focus particularly on the homepage
To provide useful resources and tips for families to evaluate the merits of hot tub ownership. I would like the site to have different sections (Like our magazine) to present buyers with more information about buying a hot tub
‘Before You Shop”
“When You Shop”
“After You Buy”
This is a magazine based content site that accepts advertising. Layout needs to support multiple ads on the page that are complimentary to the design. I will leave the size, number and locationS up to the designer.
