What is your industry?

Describe the target audience for your website design

Target audience is commercial businesses that want to commission us out to develop art in brick. We work mainly with developers, business owners, architects, and builders. They are all over the United States but we do no work overseas. Many times the decision makers are middle aged males in an executive position.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your website design

1. Attention to detail. There are tiny little details in each one of our sculptures and we would like to get that across in our designs. This website really needs to be photo based.
2. Contemporary. We want to down play the historical significance of what we do and make it look really modern.
3. Creativity. We are artists and really need an art feel to this website. They have to understand that we are extremely creative and we want to push this as much as possible. They need to see this site and understand that we are very creative in everything that we do.

How is your company different from your competitors?

There are only a few companies like ours in the US. Its our ability to create anything out of brick and manipulate it into a piece of art. We are a small shop and the owner works directly on every project from design to install. Over 30 years of experience and has been a mason for almost 40 years.

What website design styles do you like?

Design as to have a strong art design to it. We need to show how creative and artsy we are. We also really need to show off the photos that you can grab from his website. This site should be heavy with these photos. We would like detailed, up close views of the photos to really show the details of what we do.

What colors do you want to see in your website design?

Fall colors are important and playing off the brick look would also be key.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your website design?

No bright, vibrant fluorescent colors.

What adjectives should best describe your website design?

Artsy. Different. We are not looking for something cookie cutter but we know for the right designer that this will be a fun and quick project.

What content must be included in the website design?

Pages: Home, Gallery, What We Do, Who We Are, Testimonials, Design Services, Contact Us. Most have quite a few photos from the current website http://imagesinbrick.com. We also have a research report so please follow those directions closely.

Do you have additional requirements or links you want to share?

We have a research report that needs to be followed closely. We spent quite a bit of time going over those details. Main website is http://imagesinbrick.com.

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
