The Scrappy Apple website is meant to sell products, show project ideas (gallery) and general contact and about us information. So, there will be 2 directions people can go on the website: (1) purchasing products or (2) viewing project ideas, hopefully directing them to purchase the products from Scrappy Apple.
The 2 pages we'll need designed are the home page and the product listing.
The home page will have a selection of featured project ideas and sale and/or featured products. There should also be a partial listing of categories. The home page should also have a set of scrolling images (likely built with http://flex.madebymufffin.com/). It should also have a mention of the "Scrappy Apple Guarantee" and all or a portion of "The staff at Scrappy Apple try their best to make certain the quality and speed at which you get your order, yet errors can take place. If the value of the error is less than $5.00, a credit will be issued to your account. If the value is more than $5, we will do our best to replace the damaged or missing product."
The product listing will be a fairly simple product listing with one possible additional element: a clothes line. One idea is to have the products hanging from a clothes line. This idea could also be used in the header of the site. Products will be separated into categories and sub categories, so there needs to be space for category listing and also a search. Each product will have a name, photo, description and the possibility of a couple other fields, like part number or similar, although only the name and an photo will be displayed on the product listing. There should also be room to display the products currently in the cart. Pages similar to the product listing will also be used for the gallery/project ideas pages.
The following should also be included in the design of all pages:
- a login form
- search box
- category listing
The design can include elements that are similar to a scrapbooking project, but at the same time this can't cause the website to be hard to use as a website.
