Objectives

Develop an e-Business website to market your physical business. In addition, as a group, you will demonstrate your expertise in advanced web designing concepts covered in the Dreamweaver CS4 textbook.

Instructions

These requirements are an addition to the ones you have already received for the overall Bazaar 2009 project. Make sure you understand the requirements for BOTH.

Develop a website which has the following web pages:

1. Home Page
2. Products/Service Page with a full description of products or services including photos and price
3. “About Us” Page (description of the company and people)
4. “Contact Us” page that has maps of booth location, phone and email

The content of your business website will be up to you and you will be marked on detail and creativity. However, you must include the following elements:

1. Company logo must be on every page of your web site for branding
2. Promotions described on Home Page or Products/Services Page. At least ONE banner or popup ad on Home page
3. Shoutbox on the Home Page or Contact Us Page for contact or feedback
4. Maps of booth location must have been developed in either Visio or Inkscape and then exported as JPG or some other format (GIF, TIF, BMP, etc).

In addition, your website must be:

1. as interesting and attractive as possible
2. well organized and easy to navigate
3. error-free – (this may be the first impression your potential customers have of you and your business)
4. appropriate – think about the content of your site
5. professional – take care when deciding on the format - design, layout, colour and fonts

Make sure you fully describe and address the following issues:

1. products/services
2. prices
3. location
4. date and time of event
5. possibility of placing orders in advance of the bazaar

From a technical and web design standpoint, you must use the techniques outlined in Chapter 4 and 5 in the Dreamweaver textbook. Specifically, you must use:

  Technical Page (or Chapter)
1. External CSS stylesheets (or a combination of inline and external CSS) Chapter 4
2. CSS classes in your stylesheets p. 108
3. Advanced text formatting with CSS p. 112

5. DIV tags p. 117 and Chapter 5
6. Linking images, alternate text, gallery page Chapter 3
7. Filenames, folder structure, page titles and "good" web design habits Chapter 1-2
