We are a startup company based in NY that is launching an online marketplace for "sneakerheads"
Twenty-something adults & sneaker enthusiasts, hiphop fans
We're looking for a somewhat minimal (white background) but elegant homepage design - similar to http://www.etsy.com. We don't want it to look to cluttered and also the sneaker listings need to be the focus of the page.
1) main logo should say "getsneaks"
2) we're going to want a header with "Buy" "Sell" "Community" "Blog" and "Follow us on twitter" buttons, as well as a search bar. Have "Register | Sign in" buttons seperately from the other buttons.
3) Please have a header near the top with "Your online marketplace to buy and sell sneakers"
4) we'd also like a small banner saying:
We just opened! 1st month special: no fees at all
List items for free, and no sales fees either! Until January 21, 2009.
5) We'd like sample sneaker listings as the body of the page - in two categories.. one for "Featured kicks" with 6-8 products below it (make this like the Handpicked items category on etsy.com homepage) and another category for "Recently Listed Items"
6) We'd also like a small box somewhere where users can sign up for an e-mail newsletter like on etsy.com. And another small box with Facebook, Twitter buttons
If all goes well, we'd like you to do our product page too!! (which we'll pay extra for)
