Hammer Nutrition is an Australian company providing nutritional fuels & supplements intended for endurance athletes. Our current website is looking very dated.
We’d like a new site design to reflect the high quality of our products & service. It should be clean & professional. Our current site is here: http://www.hammernutrition.com.au.
We cater to athletes doing endurance type events, including triathlons, marathons, and endurance cyclist/Mountain Bikers.
The majority of our customers are non professional athletes, as opposed to professional athletes.
They tend to purchase our products for major events, and for the months of training leading up to the event.
We’re picturing a fixed width, two column layout, optimized for 1024 sized screens.
We’d like a header area at the top containing our logo & a banner image, with a horizontal menu under that. The footer should contain a copyright notice, sitemap link & some page links.
That's just our initial idea - if you come up with something better, we're open to it.
We’d like a sidebar, which we intend to hold some product thumbnails, Facebook & Twitter icons, newsletter signup form, Sponsored Athlete graphic, and useful links.
You might consider having a two-column sidebar, with a merged area at the top for the newsletter form & social icons.
We need to have some focus on the newsletter signup form, as one goal is to grow our subscriber base. So please make that element attractive.
We'll need something visually appealing, with a well-organised layout to display our information/content.
Colours should be consistent with the current logo – we’re keen for a clean type of design.
Main navigation bar will have: Home, Why Hammer, Products, Blog, Info Centre, About Us, Contact. Please show one item with dropdown links visible.
The content column should have the page heading, followed by text including bullet points, links, and floating images.
The design should be for our homepage. We would like the header, sidebar, and footer to be consistent between all pages.
The homepage should have three major elements in the homepage column. Firstly, we would like a box for static content. This will contain a welcome heading and a paragraph or two of text. You can float an image in here if you wish.
Next is a product showcase. This should be a scrolling line of product images. Example, showcase here: http://www.australianwardrobedesign.com.au
Third we would show our two latest blog posts. Example: http://www.marinellisauce.com/blog/
Posts would include a heading, an image, two or so paragraphs, and a link to read more.
Our existing site is at http://www.hammernutrition.com.au
We'll keep our existing logo, and theme the site to suit this design.
