We summarized the following:

User Objectives

1. The main purpose of the website is to for promulgation; namely, the website should be informative and attractive for potential customers


2. The general feeling of the website should be elegant and clean

3. The website will propagate an idea that nail style shows one’s life style: a fancy nail style can change your daily life Design objectives.

Design Objectives

1. There will be separate pages for each services while putting most emphasis on nail art, a home page, a special offer page and a setting page


2. Many information will be put on the homepage: store intro, menu, promoting video, services summary, contact info. We need to make sure to organize them well so that all these information do not seem overwhelming


3. We’re thinking about putting workers’ certificates in the detailed page of each service to increase credibility
