Okie, so here's what we've got: a meeting with the client, who gave us decent information just 'enough' to make a website which 'suits their needs and tastes' (no offense heh :p), then some researching on-and-off-line, we've come up with some general ideas on how the site should be wireframed and agreed on some of the form and functionality matters.
Followings are the first sketches:
The Artist Cafe' should be done following the idea of 'defile fashion bars and lounge" website, created by lumen studio [www.lumenstudio.net], illustrated in the book 'web design: studio - icons' (Ed Julius Wiedemann), p. 116, that uses a banner (or menu?) with shadows of different people in different poses... Anyway, we'll try to create s menu of the similar kind, which will show the artists' shadows (probably taken by us), where we can view anyone's profile by clicking on his or her shadow.
The Gellery section contains, of course, products created by the studio, together with their descriptions, this normally requires a database of php-sql or flash-xml, yet since our client doesnt specifically require it, we might as well do it on pure html. Though, we'll probably consider database processing in view of the need for 'professional' and 'easy to update' website... :)
That's all for now. Any suggestion / objection / adjustment that needs to be dealt with should be carried out asap. We've got time constrain on this! :)
