The project is the development of a product presentation and sales website. We sells high design products that we create and produce ourselves. The website will also be very design oriented. We have not come to a decision on the CMS we will be using but the two we are considering are WordPress or Expression Engine. We have a great deal of experience with WordPress and web development in general. The site is a combination of product pages, blog pages and a small shopping cart. Most of the design for these pages are complete.
There are between 10 and 14 xhtml/css pages that will need to be coded. Because our site will be user account oriented where will be some php work done on the back-end. The will make use AJAX and sIFR extensively. Additionally several custom plugin will probably need to made for this project.
Finally we will have a simple shopping cart back-end on this site. It will either be Paypal or Miva Merchant driven and again well designed.
This is the first in 3 stages of the site we have planned so it can end up being a long term project.
The location of the developers not of importance to us, the quality and efficiency of the code and architecture is most important.
