We have recently developed a new website - http://www.milenoaustralia.com.au/t…index.php/ - which has a fairly minimalist design look and feel. However, what we have left until last is the design of key banners for the landing page. By banners I am referring to the main slider panel, and 3 sub banners directly below. We require for each of these banners to be created. This artwork we hope will bring the landing page to life and ultimately captivate the visitor.
The current banners were included to fill the void and are in no way an indication of a required direction.
Importantly, we'd like there to be a connecting style between all banners, whether it is through the design features, fonts, etc.
In terms of banner sizing, I'm not exactly sure of the px dimensions, however, perhaps it is possible to determine from the existing site images?
Below is some further direction on the design requirements of each banner.
1. Main slider banner - for this initial phase we are seeking to create 1 slider panel only which will be static for the moment. Our core product focus is faucet mixers (otherwise know as taps mixers - the current banner has a line drawing of an existing mixer tap that is supplied). One limitation is the lack of lifestyle photography for use, which may require greater focus on illustration or other creative works. If you choose to source graphics for inclusion, it is important they fit within the brand focus - aspirational, quality, contemporary. Given the strong link between faucets and water, this is a possible theme to embody - water, its freshness and purity.
Lastly the main panel will feature some text which needs to be place within the artwork, for example "Incredible performance, superior design - introducing San Luis collection"
2. Sub banners - there are 3 sub banners on the landing page below the main slider panel.
i) The first to focus on a 'new product' and will have this as the key heading. The artwork is will include the product image and some text.
ii) Sub banner 2 will have the main heading 'Water conservation'. This banner artwork is to embody the environment and saving of water.
iii) Third banner is to focus on product warranty. It must have headline text '10 Year Warranty'. Within the artwork we'd like to include a warranty illustration like the current one (must be changed) with '10 years' featured.
With all sub banners there is to be a small button in the right bottom corner which is effectively a 'learn more' link - on click it will jump to the relevant page. At current there is a small arrow button, however, feel free to adjust this.
To assist with understanding the design direction, look and feel we require, below we have listed a number of sites we like and in particular their landing page artwork.
Feel free to shoot through any queries.
