Modified site layout
I’ve eased up on the color. Using close to the same color in the banner and text box stroke to give a good separation.
I’ll have to put it up in a browser to see if it is still readable.
Basic site structure:
Banner image with shop name and wheel
Buttons under the banner link to class descriptions, our calendar, special events page, fiber links and about us
The first text box is just a quick intro to the store.
The two wheels are links to child pages (tools and fiber)
I’m not sure about the color in the Visit US box, I want to give folks the hours and contact information, but don’t want it to overshadow the stock.
Driving directions gives them three ways, the image is optimized for Medium Quality, it will scale up a ways before pixelating. It is also a link to Mapquest driving directions. And of course the directions in the text.
Wheel images are optimized for the web.
I’ll work on the css to give each box a class that lets it scale down from a desktop to a phone view.
I will use CSS to tmake the buttons turn to a menu.
