How Admin25 started their web page design journey

Company name

Boss Transmissions

Overview

We remanufacture automotive transmissions (all makes and models since 1996). This is different from rebuilding a transmission: we totally tear it down, replacing components, and then fully rebuild it, as opposed to replacing only what is worn out. We remanufacture and then ship out our transmissions all over the country, to be installed by the customer (or their shop) - we don't have cars in our shop, and all we do is transmission remanufacturing. In other words, we aren't your neighborhood mechanic. Our model is a bit different from others in our industry: Most charge a "core charge": a fee that is refunded when the old transmission is sent. Additionally, we understand the value of automation, and actually have an IT department and proprietary software to manage our operations. Our goal is to put the customer first and break down the "good ol' boy" system that exists in the automotive servicing industry. Important to note: We only service automatic transmissions.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are unique in that we allow the consumer to directly order from us. This allows them to bypass their shop (and the shop's markup) to save money. We also have shops and small-scale mechanics as customers as well.

Requirements

Our site needs to blend simplicity with Web 2.0 elegance. Follow modern design approaches, but don't overdo it. Our product and service should not be lost in the beauty.

Incorporate our logo (attached) - color scheme will be orange in the logo and light gray as in our logo. Subtle gradients, as seen throughout the Internet. Don't let the black background in the logo fool you - black will be the background for the header as described below, but we don't want a dark site.

Should be easily converted to CSS/HTML. Your design will be handed off to our programmer for conversion.

Dimensions: 960 pixels wide. For columns (see below) use typical grid widths - see 960.gs

File format: Photoshop. Please use layers, and use layer grouping as makes sense. (group tabs, text, etc)

Feel free to use photos or other assets, but DO NOT STEAL. You will inform us of any licensed assets used.

Please don't download a template and try to sell it back to us. That's stealing. This contest is being monitored by an experienced web developer and programmer, so you'll be found out, and reported.

Please remember our industry. We don't need a generic auto design - we're not a generic auto shop, but something different. Try to include a transmission in your design, and remember we only service automatic transmissions, so anything featuring a stick gear shift doesn't fit.

Number of pages

3

Page descriptions

1) Home page - should be a typical landing page with the following (you determine where):
1. Buy a Boss Transmission and have it shipped to your Home or your trusted Repair Facility of your choice.
2. Call 1-877-585-BOSS (2677)
3. EASY ORDER – NO HASSLE PRICE order online or over the phone.
4. We specialize in all types of automatic transmissions for cars and pickup trucks.

2) 2-column design, with a right sidebar

3) page with form elements - not plain, but consider ease of converting to CSS

Each page should have a black header bar with our logo. Each of the following pages will be shown in tabs (there are no sub-menus, so you may need to have 2 rows of tabs) -
- Home
- Price your Transmission Instantly
- Warranty Coverage - How it Works
- Shipping - How It Works
- How our Transmissions are Re-manufactured
- Product Warranty Agreement
- Terms and Conditions
- Submit your Core Pickup Form
- Submit your Warranty Activation Form
- Contact Boss Transmissions
- About Boss Transmissions

Tabs will have 3 states: current page, normal, and hover - please have one of the tabs in current state (probably the "home" tab), and one in "hover" state, and the rest in normal.

Existing website

http://www.bosstrans.com

This site is nice and simple. It's easy to navigate. What we don't like is that so much of the screen is taken up by visual elements at the top. Ideally, all the good information should require no vertical scrolling.
