This website is a magento platform and needs to be simplified.
Here is an example of the look and feel I want to create. http://www.increasemyt.com
Though this is not an ecommerce site I like the simplicity and want to go in this direction while keeping much of the same functionality of current site (while removing our current sidebar menu)
I'd like something similar to this only with an optin/newsletter sign up field STARTING above the fold similar to how you see it on our current site http://www.biopulsenutrition.com - only with a phone number field added in.
The image on the home page would be part static and part banner slider. This means for the exmple site above, the image of the guy exposing his undershirt would be one of our product images, with a small amount of verbiage.. The content to the right of the guy, would always stay the same and it would be a png so that the text would lay over the product banner that slid in to place on the left, thus making it look like one finished banner. As multiple banners slide in to palce the image on the right stay put.
HEADER BUTTONS WILL INCLUDE:
Social medial icons will be represented
Paypal icon will be represented
Magento Shopping cart link will be represented similar to existing site http://www.biopulsenutrition.com
Magento account options will be represented in smaller links:
Our Phone number muct be on the home page simialr to our example site, http://www.incrreasemyt.com (only bigger and more inviting)
The product button would link to the individual product pages and will be a drop down which must be stylized
The 4 round buttons in the lower right would link to individual categories: Pre-Workout, Fat Loss, Daily Health, Health Foods
Under the fold of the home page would be our featured products followed by articles (with pics) for SEO, similar to what you see on increasemyt.com - but I am open to other ideas..
Category page- list view of products with image on right, short discription, more info button, buy now button
Examples of category list view I like
Must have clear separation between each product. Easy on the eyes.
A side column will be represented for regular magento shopping cart features Newsletter sign up, last product viewed, suggested products, etc)
Needs to be a totally stunning product page with clear layout Something similar to our existing page with similar tabs, only much better: http://www.biopulsenutrition.com/in…s-201.html
