Hi my name is Shaun, I am the CEO of eVarc LLC. We are currently having a site built that will be along the same lines as ebay. The style in witch items are sold is completely different. Anyway I am having a problem with my programmers.
I would like our site to stand apart for other auction sites. I would like to use some cool new features via CSS but my programmers have asked for some examples. Could someone please show me some effects that would be good for an ebay type website.
You shouldn’t want "cool new features" just for the sake of it. You have to know what you want in a way.
Why don’t you start by looking at competitor’s sites?
We already have the basic design done I just want to spice it up a bit. I asked the Programmers to use CSS to do so and they said they would need examples of what I want as CSS can be used for almost anything.
They have given us screen shots. The website is going to be done in PHP and Ajax. They are now in the process of making the screen shots into HTML and everything just feels to boring to me. I want to add some cool little effects to help spice things up.
Well there really is no substitute for originality :/
That said, can I suggest you browse through some of the css galleries out there (screenalicious.com, bestwebgallery,com are two of my favs but I’m sure there are plenty of others)? They’re usually good for some inspiration.
