How Do We Want the Gallery to "Look"?

Miscellaneous ideas to start with...

What would the home page of the Gallery "look" like?

  • check models such as search and advanced search
  • basically an app store
  • showing different categories of what's to offer
  • maybe rotating the offerings
  • not more than 10 or 15 items up front
  • a few things highlighted up front
  • a link to a resources page that's a link farm
  • some resources stables links on the front page, with a rotator
  • short rows of thumbnails
  • icons at sides of thumbnails for info at one side, and BRIEF text at bottom
  • make it clear that there is not a *paying* store (ideas on how to differentiate?)

What would the category search results page "look" like"

  • short rows of thumbnails with clear focus up front
  • icons at sides of thumbnails for info at one side, and BRIEF text at bottom

Subpages for individual entries

Work to Set Up the Gallery

  • what are our options for hosting environment, with regard to supported languages, tools, and databases supported?
  • do a quick C/B analysis of using different kinds of tools
  • perhaps grab a pre-built store template, with easy UI design, and that works with the hosting environment we'll use
  • better scope the work effort required; check with potential people who could do it.
  • project management piece is important

Work to Set Up the Entries

  • explore the work-flow efficiencies
  • using a CMS that we could log into

Work to Maintain

Describing the Gallery

An "About" page (or section) should include:

  • the purpose
  • the involvement in building it
  • ways to participate if not via the site

A "How to Use" page (or section) should include:

  • disclaimer wrt regulatory (may help but not a guarantee)
  • and follow these guidelines

A "Come visit" blurb to post on other sites:

  • enticing & welcoming short bit about what's in the gallery
