Online Jewelry Store UI/DB Design
May 4, 2008 10:17 AM

I'm soliciting bids for a complete online store design for a sole proprietor jewelry business. The proprietor is looking to expand from her well-established Albuquerque Old Town storefront business into online sales.

The end customer very much likes Coldwater Creek's design and UI.


- "Mac-like" UI design (rounded corners, simplicity, navigability)

- Nearly identical experience in FF/IE.

- Tabbed main jewelry "families".

- In each "family" tab, tiled jewelry thumbnails that, when clicked, expand into the main window with details like length, weight, materials, multiple views of the piece.

- Ability to add to cart either from thumbnail view or detail view.

- Search function that permits searching on any of the details (like "length between X and Y" or materials).

- Checkout that provides thumbnail view of what you're purchasing, line price, gift options, shipping options (CWC's design for this is excellent).

- Database frontend that permits easy stock management and uploading of new pieces.

- Database design that scales.

- Modular, well-commented code that's maintainable: while I can't write this myself, I expect to be maintaining it on a continuing basis, and I want it to be heavily documented and cleanly coded.

The site will be hosted on Dreamhost using a MySQL database.

I'm a newbie at this kind of thing, so please contact me with any questions I didn't answer or basic facts I neglected to include.

payscale: Market, DOE
