XMMedia got their new web page design by running a design contest:
New website design for Auto Value Parts Stores
Check out XMMedia's Web page design contest…
We sell auto parts and accessories throughout Alberta, at more than 11 stores. The average customers are males, 18-50.
Our company colours are the yellow (#fff200) and blue (#2e3192) from the logo, although these don't need to be the primary colours of the website. The design should be less based on actual cars, but still having an automotive feel. Some other keywords: retail, local, 100% Alberta owned, clean, professional, we have the experience, retail, fresh. Photos of the stores can be incorporated if it fits. We will be building the site as a responsive site, so any design adjustments/ideas you have to help this process are greatly appreciated. Logo: the company has a number of versions of their logo, all of which are attached. You're free to use any of them, but here is the order of our preference: (1) stacked, words only (stacked-words_only.eps), (2) logo with blue bkg (logo.eps), (3) horizontal, words only (horizontal-words_only.eps). Feel free to use different versions of the logo throughout the design (ie, you don't have to stick to 1 logo everywhere). Alberta Owned & Operated Logo: it'd be great to incorporate this icon/logo in the design. It may also be possible to either change the colours or come up with something similar (wording with province of Alberta outline).
We are looking for the design that we can use for all the pages of the website. The content of the new site will be similar to what's current on the website. We want a site where it's easy to find the locations and general product information (what we sell), although we won't be integrating a full catalogue (other than a link to the full catalogue). The main navigation should include (or something close to these): - Locations - Auto Parts - Services - Promotions / News - Accounts - Employment - About Us The home page can include a short list of products (ie, accessories, brakes, seals & bearings, shop supplies, belts & hoses, tools), a place for a current promotion/news, obviously link to find a location, and any other ideas you have.
What to avoid
Avoid actual photos of vehicles. Instead use themes from vehicles, such as tire treads, grills, etc.
A photoshop file is probably the best for us, although we can also work with other formats as well. Design for a width between 1140 and 1280px wide. We will be using a grid and the latest HTML5 and CSS3 features, so feel free to provide ideas that could fit within these requirements. It'd probably be best to design the home page, but if you have any ideas as to how the other pages will fit within the design, feel free to submit your ideas as they will increase your chances of winning. Thanks for all your ideas. We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
