How pgrand started their web page design journey

Company name

Perfectly Grand

Overview

Perfectly Grand is the #1 online retailer for piano accessories such as: piano lamps, piano covers, piano benches, piano bench cushions, etc. and has been in business since '96 (when we were a catalog company). We are consistently on page 1 of Google for our keyword search terms. We're family based and have been involved in the piano business since '86.

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

Our audience is sophisticated, cultured, but also practical. They are primarily piano owners, piano players, parents of child piano players, piano teachers, people in charge of pianos at churches, schools, colleges, musicians etc.

They are interested in music - and are looking for accessories for instruments they care about - these instruments usually represent a significant investment or sentimental attachment.

Their income level is anywhere from middle class to wealthy.

Requirements

While the overall job is for 5 pages (Homepage, Category, Information/Content, Product; Cart) THE DESIGN CONTEST WILL BE BASED ON THE HOMEPAGE DESIGN ONLY.

Work on the remaining 4 pages is to ONLY BE DONE by the designer that wins the Homepage design. Additional instructions for the remaining pages will be provided (several pages will be based on a template). Also, there will be additional page(s)/work available outside of the contest to the winning contractor.

The new design should portray culture, inspire confidence, practicality. Stay from scrolled fonts - remember - cultured, not pretentious.

We like the color scheme of black, golds (yellows), blues, browns

We want to use our logo but you may change the size, color and manipulate the style - (image attached). Maybe embed it with a grand piano, or... - be creative.
