This Brand is extremely image and design conscious and a successful designer will need to focus on the images provided and make them the centre of the pages submitted. Flash is not needed but not ruled out should you feel it necessary. In that regard, while we know it is not possible to showcase directly by the designer, any animations ideas, or illustrations on the design will be appreciated.
HOB Salons wants the website to be image-led, simple graphics, contemporary, not too busy looking, and straight to the point. The client likes a monochrome style, as this typically reflects the above points.
This however, does not mean that only monochrome style submissions have a chance of winning. Generally the design needs to emphasize HOB Salons position as THE top salon in the world of hairdressing.
It is wished that designers produce a front page as well as a generic sub page, from designers who enter the competition. It is HIGHLY recommended for designers to review the below listed materials, such as the sitemap and website listing document with client comments.
