Ive included the wireframe of our website so you can get an idea of set up and sizes of banners and buttons. Main page will have the six buttons. as you can see they are listed as dog shop, cat shop ect. so what youve suggested with each animal in a cart will work with the button concept we have for our site. I too was thinking having a different color for each category.
For the buttons they need motion when scrolled over. So provide a second image. Either slight color change or invert the image or give it a movement.
(eg when scrolled over image lightens in color, or changes oposite color, or a smile apears on image like on our logo) see what you think.
Images to be of domestic looking pets.
I dont like to give you too much detail as i can send you in different directions to what ideas you might have. I want your input and ideas.
I prefer you ask me what i think of the concepts that you have come up with.
I have put down for 2 x 8 hour days work, let me know how you go. if need more time or less let me know.
Lets start with one catergory banner and button to get the style and look, and we can then implement it to the other catergories.
Keep me informed with what way your headed so were on the same page.
Let me know if you require any other details. eg colors or animal types.
The colors for the main logo will be blue and the magenta.
