We've been wholesale importing boots and clothes from Europe into Australia for several years. Currently only selling them through existing retail outlets not owned by us.
Using ZooVillage http://europe.zoovillage.com/store/default.asp as the inspiration, we're moving into selling our products online. We are teh exclusive wholesaler for several of the brands we'll be opening the store with.
Starting the online presence with only a few lines of boots we're ultimately hoping to get all of our lines of boots and clothing for both female and male markets into the store. Long term goal will be to increase the products offered by including the lines of other wholesalers.
The products available on the site come from the latest high end fashion designers in Europe, Ilse Jacobsen http://ilsejacobsen.dk/?pid=1 and d.co Copenhagen http://www.dicocopenhagen.dk/ as examples, and range from $300 t0 $600 for the boots on offer when we launch the site.
Long term our products appeal to ages from early 20's to mid 40's, people with an eye for fashion and a desire to wear the latest brands from Europe. To start with, the lines we will be selling will appeal to women aged early 20's to late 30's / early 40's. Women with a high taste in fashion and happy to spend the money to look and feel good.
Using ZooVillage, Ilse Jacobsen and d.co Copenhagen as examples we want to appear professional and stylish with the products we sell and the service we deliver.
I need a graphic that appears on the home page and also some products pages sized 940 x 340.
The graphic needs to contain a logo containing the words "Style Village" ... considering this will be incorporated within other graphics i see this being a creative text only unless it can be incorporated as a logo without detracting from main graphic.
I would like to explore the possibility of an animated GIF as long as the image quality is very high, it must look stylish and classy.
The graphic will replace the existing placeholder of the male and female on http://www.stylevillage.com.au.
The current images attached are the first line of boots. I can supply in much higher res for final graphic or before if required.
I am angling towards an animated GIF because the image appears on many pages and i would like some variety. I would expect the image to change at approximately 30 second intervals, although i rely on the designer to suggest best solution.
I need the words "Free Postage in Australia" to appear on this graphic ... it would be the last transition in the animation and would be like a ribbon, covering the bottom right hand corner at 45 degrees, not too obtrusive but big enough to be seen. Ribbon to be red and writing to be white, that's the colours of Australia Post.
