Project ProposalFUZIONClothing BoutiqueWebsiteTyler Boddy1

Project IntroductionDesigner: Tyler BoddyClient: Sean Bowman and Peter Robinson ofFuzion Clothing Boutique3120 State St # ASanta Barbara, CA 93105Origin of Website AssignmentI introduced the idea of creating a website for two business partners who arealso friends of mine who recently opened a new clothing store, Fuzion, locatedin Santa Barbara. I explained how it would be beneficial for me as a student towork with a functional business when designing a website. And, since I createda logo for the clients business recently which the clients liked and used, I feltthey would be satisfied with my future designs. Since I am a novice webdesigner, at most, I offered to create the site for free as long as additional feesneeded such as web hosting and photographic services where paid for. Wediscussed the complexity, size, and potential of the site I was capable ofcreating. I explained the assignment description to the clients and therequirements of the site. I explained the time needed to create the site, whichwill be complete by December 10th 2007.The clients and I discussed what kind of site in which they envisioned, andwhat they would like to see on the store’s webpage. The client’s main Goal fora webpage would be to encourage users to visit the client’s store location andpurchase product. The website will function as a form of advertisementthrough search engine optimization as well as providing the URL on businesscards and future advertisements.I asked the clients to research websites and collect ideas for layouts that wecould look at together. I also asked the clients to gather store info such as; alist of products and brand names carried by the clients business, hours ofoperation, and other vital information I will need to structure the majority ofthe content of the site. We planned on meeting again soon to make somesketches and exchange ideas. The clients agreed to my terms and were morethan happy to meet with my needs, such as gathering store information, andpaying necessary fees needed in order to host the website and gather images.Client’s goals and needs for site:To promote a larger client base by advertising the website on promotionalhandouts, newsprint adds, links in other websites, and business cards andutilize search engine optimization. The website will also act as an outlet forretail company promoters to view an overview of the client’s shop and becomeinterested in selling product at the client’s business. Because of the popularity2

of online shopping, the website will encourage users to visit the client’slocation of business and buy product from the client. Therefore, the websitewill provide minimal links to retail supplier’s online shopping sites.Target audience:The target audience will be mostly young adults both male and female andextend to middle age adults. The target audience will be located in the US andfocused within California and surrounding states. The audience should beinterested in fashion and “street” style.Expectations of Audience:The expectation of the audience will be to become interested in visiting thestore location and purchasing product from the client’s business. Theexpectation of retail supplier audience will be to become interested in sellingproduct at store location.Project DescriptionI, the consultant, will provide the Client with a standard operational website.This site will include the following elements and content; Five pages including homepage An average of two graphics per page An average of three rollovers per page Links to desired sites (up to 5 per page) Search engine optimization One special feature i.e. multimedia such as flash or videoRequirements of the client include; All photographs used in site Continual cost of hosting services All textual content Current list of products carried, and clients current contact informationSite ContentHomepage Menu bar Banner Links to sub pages; 1.clothes & accessories, 2.
