Design and build a one page website showcasing an ultra high end pair of sunglasses. This is a luxury brand and the site should reflect that. The brand's target market is men who have purchased supercars or high performance yachts and planes.
You will be in charge of designing and building the site. We're flexible on the technology for the CMS (wordpress, squarespace, custom HTML, etc are all acceptable).
There is not a lot of content, so one page is fine. We aren't launching the product publically yet, so this page is more for investors and partners than customers at this stage. We need to showcase the glasses as if the visitor to the site is a potential customer.
The site should be responsive, and look good from phones to large 5k screens.
We don't need eCommerce functionality at this point. We do need a working contact form.
I'll provide our logo, some copy, and high quality images of the glasses. We're still finalizing the design, so the images will be CGI. We can create requested images/angles of the glasses as needed.
I have some ideas and a test site we've created that I can send you via private message. This shows the glasses and the copy we'd like to use. If you are a good copywriter, we are open to tweaking the text.
We like the parallax effect, similar to what you see here: http://www.rolex.com/
The site should be optimized for speed (although we understand that quality images will take longer to download, we do want to optimize as much as possible).
You will be responsible for choosing any supporting images. We can pay for the images, but they need to be licensed appropriately.
The CGI images of the glasses take several hours each to render, so we can use lower quality images for the initial design, then after that is approved, create the high quality images for the final site.
Please include an estimate of the hours needed to complete the job.
Your portfolio will be the main determinant of who we hire, so send links to anything relevant that you want us to be sure and see. We'll be looking at the code and site speed as well as design.
Please send me any questions you have.
