Please submit your designs as soon as you can. We may need you to make some minor changes to your design so it is compatible with the CoreCommerce shopping cart system. If you submit your designs too late, there may not be enough time to make the changes we need and your design may be eliminated.
This will be an e-commerce website. The design will be for the homepage/template area of the site.
- Please use the provided main logo in the design. We have provided several different options for the logo.
- This will be a fixed width design, make the width 960px, but do not go over that number.
- The site will be a two column layout, with the sidebar on the left at a width of no greater than 250px.
- For product images etc use the provided images, DO NOT use stock imagery for the products.
- Clean (Not cluttered.)
- See http://luxurybamboobedding.com/ for Inspiration ONLY. DO NOT COPY THE THIS SITE EXACTLY. Any submissions that too closely resemble this example will be eliminated because this site is meant to GUIDE your design, not define it.

ITEMS IN THE LEFT SIDEBAR

- The banner image will be a slideshow, please include the standard slideshow elements that come with the Nivo slider like previous and next buttons, or numbers.
- We really like the "You are going to Love…" section on the http://luxurybamboobedding.com/ homepage. Please include something like this in our design. Ipsum text is ok in this section at this time.
- The footer section needs to contain at a minimum the same links as our header and our copyright information.
DO NOT DO
