This design is bolder than the first two. the main page shows an old-fashioned camera and a screen. At the moment the screen shows a picture of a lady wearing a scarf, but when I start working in flash, I will make the screen show lots of different pictures.
The buttons look like reels to maintain the theme.
I made the logo in photoshop, using a picture that I took of a scarf on a foam hatstand.
This the about page for design 2. The background is similar to the homepage, grass/garden. the logo is the same and so are the buttons(except that they have been moved a bit). The idea behind this picture is to show that the scarves are so soft, one could even use it to cover a newborn baby. I have created the scarf in photoshop, but would obviousely use a Mook scarf in the actual webdesign.
The idea behind this design is to create a nice, fresh, airy effect. For the background I used a picture of my own garden. I attached a washing line to two trees. The scarves I made in photoshop using the warp tool. If I chose to use this design, I would obiviousely use pictures of Mook scarves,or create the scarves like I have done above, but using Mook fabric patterns.
At a later stage in flash, I will make the scarves move gently, as if they were blowing in the wind. This will show that the scarves are lightweight and therefore comfortable to wear.
I have made three different logo’s and at this moment I think the one I preffer is the one where the letters are cut out to reveal the trees in the background.
I am still planning to add some birds on the washing line, who will chirp when the mouse hovers over them.
I have also included a picture of grass and trees that I found on the net, but have decided not to use it as the proportions are wrong and the colours look fake. Instead I have worked with the picture of my backgarden.
Continuing with the same basic lay-out as the home page, I have designed two further pages for design 1: the contact page and the events page.
Again, as mentionned next to the homepage, i would spend more time cutting out the leaves properly if I were to chose to use this design.
The contact page has the same logo and buttons as the homepage to keep the consistancy throughout the webdesign.
For the event page I have again used the same logo and buttons but I moved around the buttons and tried changing the size of the logo.
The information I have used is random for the moment but it gives a clear idea of what the page would look like when completed.
The above three are identical images except the background. The frame in the centre only shows one picture at the moment, but it will be a flashbanner, showing pictures of different ladies of different cultures and religions wearing scarves.
I have changed the size of the logo in one of them just to experiment and see which when is better.
At this stage i have only used the multiply function in photoshop to get rid of the white areas around the images, for example around the leaves but it is not perfect and if I decide to go ahead with this design, i will spend more time in photoshop properly cutting out the images before placing them on the background.
