Project description

This effort is limited to the header portion of the pages at Thosbaker.com. Preserve the logo. Ignore the top nav. Live chat is moving anyway so ignore that as well. It will have to work with the rest of the site, and the footer, so nothing too outrageous will work. Update: feel free to use the nav bar in your design - please don't change the navigation language, but the space is open for reuse/redesign. For example, your design might put the search bar at the end of the top navigation. If you want to be bolder, you could try something with the logo. But do bear in mind the conservative, no-frills, nature of the current design, the fact that the products are all higher end, and that the audience is 40+, highly educated, primarily coastal US, and primarily female.

  • Hi Thosbaker, I read your brief but I just really don't understand what your wanting here. Please can you explain better on what your wanting here. So I can get started on making you a great design. Thanks, Squewheet

      |--| Sure, right now, above the nav bar (outdoor living, game room, great room, etc.) we have the thosbaker logo, cart(), request a catalog, 877-855-1900, register, and so on. Assume the page remains the same from the nav bar on down, and that everything above the nav bar can change. I'm just looking for ideas that might make the page more interesting -- the header portion of the page above the nav bar. Let me provide a little more background: We get a lot of phone orders -- a lot. That's because the products are often expensive and sometimes fairly complex (it's non-trivial to buy and install an outdoor gas fire pit, for example). The phone number, therefore, is more important than it might be on other ecommerce sites. We want to encourage people to call. Further, our catalogs have driven most of our revenue over the years and remain a key component of the business. How do we make that, like the phone number, appear less like an afterthought and more like a secondary call to action? One option leaves everything alone and just moves the thosbaker logo to the center. Okay, maybe that's a winner. Got another idea?

  • Dear CH, Thank you very much for your feedback on my previous design. I have uploaded my updated designs. Please check my new designs and give me your valuable comments. #9 I have made this design with web 2.0 standard and also I have made change on the footer also for merge the header. Kind Regards,
  • Update: We love what we're seeing so far so much that we'd like to extend the parameters a bit. While not changing the words on the top nav, you may include the top navigation space in your design. In other words, you might, for example, want to put the search box on the same line as the top nav bar. Does that change your design ideas?
  • Dear CH, I have uploaded my design for the new header, please look at my design #2 New Header design for your home page. #3 New Header with menu dropdown view design. and give me your valuable comment about the design. It will be helpful to improve the design. Kind Regards,
