Squash Design Redesign
Squash Design is a clothing company – focusing on squash players. Selling clothing is a very tactile and emotional decision, so selling clothing online is a big challenge. We must design a site that address this challenge.
Things to consider in the design:
1. The design elements should speak towards the liveliness of the line and brand. We do not want stale – static design. Please do not use out of the box templates.
2. We will have s small line – but the line will be constantly (every
3 months) changing with new products
3. We have several world class players – they must be showcased throughout the site. We have a photographer who will be providing high quality images of our players in events
4. We also like to show normal average people (our squash community) members in the apparel – playing
5. We support events through the year – this must be captured and updated easily.
6. Tons of photos, video – this needs to be easy to update
7. For your reference- current site is squashdesign.com
We are asking for your design/creativity.
1. The base build will be a clone of http://www.lodgerfootwear.com/ As a base EVERYTHING in here will be in scope – with some addition, or minor modifications.
2. Homepage – please price out including a flash home page similar to http://www.adidas.com/us/homepage.asp. We have independent bids separate for this – please make sure you create the placeholder for this.
3. Menu should js like lodger page. If we change items – it should be easy to modify this menu. Please note the tabs in the menu.
4. Departments (http://www.lodgerfootwear.com/shoes/english-classic) – note image and mouse over change. This has to be dynamic build as we add and remove items. Each department should have its own page
5. Our department (Roughly speaking)
6. Item page (http://www.lodgerfootwear.com/shoes/english-classic/derby-chocolate-suede.html); note the following

o Breadcrumb on top

7. SquashDesign Blog – we currently use wordpress – but are willing to move to anything – should have a non-basic layout; the header should match our general layout – seem seamless.
