Merchant Zoo website needs clean, simple home page design based on existing logo and header tabs (these will be included along with content).
Merchant Zoo has two main sections (Merchants and Affiliates). The home page is where the user needs to clearly understand that they need to choose either the Affiliate section or the Merchant section to find out more information. We want this choice to be an obvious, no-brainer, no-thought-required reaction, and we want that to be clear without really reading so much, which means the graphical elements must suggest that distinction without really having to “say?? it. In other words, we want it to be a simple choice, kind of like when you go to a public bathroom and you see two doors: one for men and one for women. You make your choice and go through the correct door. We want it to be that simple.
We will also need:
-Design for two buttons, one for “Sign Up?? and one for “Login??. We want these buttons to be the obvious place to click --- no thought required (see content for placement).
-For the secondary pages on the site, we will need a basic design that includes the same logo/header tabs on the home page, but with a left-side navigation bar as well. This will be a consistent navigation bar on all the other pages of the site and should be able to accomodate about 6-10 plain text links. We are looking for an easy-to-read navigation, so include a few options of text size/color relative to the color of the background graphic. Don't forget to include hover and visited options on the links.
-On top of all this, we will need a background color that "frames" the site in a centered, fixed width of 800 pixels. It can be a solid color or whatever, as long as it looks clean and professional.
-We will supply logo/header tabs, as well as home page content.
