Wantthe company logo and images of printed work to provide the main focus so want the vibrancy of color should come from the portfoliorather than in the site interface itself. This suggests more muted colors inthe interface. Forcolor, we like the blue of the logo and light browns or light shades forbackgrounds.
We wantto convey an artistic feel to reflect the fine art focus, for example usingstretcher or a wooden art frame to outline the main body of the site.
Stockphotos might be used as well. Potential sources include istockphoto.com, bigstockphoto.com,sxc.hu, and snapvillage.com
Reallylike this site and think it’s a great reference. However, we don’t like theburnt paper look. This site will be more contemporary and fine art focused.Perhaps a wooden picture frame to outline the main body area. Also like thelogo and quote request phone areas at the top with Home, About Us and Contactas minor menu items.
Theimage usage in the headers is well done and we like the multiple examples laidout in an attractive way.

- Site widthshould be around 1000 pixels (960 wide?) and most important vertical portionshould be “above the fold” within 700 pixels though it can scroll downvertically below that
- Like theidea of folksy concept for some interface elements such as tape, pushpins,post-its etc. though still want to try for differentiation from endeavorprinting
- Too much blank white spaceand spare look
- Too business-y/high tech
