Website Purpose and Architecture Plan
The website that will be evaluated, proposed, and eventually reconstructed will be for southwest artist Antonio Gonzales who offers unique original southwest oil paintings, prints, and limited edition numbered giclee prints for sale. This site will represent the artist’s oil paintings which he develops and paints out of his Santa Fe, New Mexico art studio. The website will help sell additional works of art to clients throughout the world who wish to conveniently shop Antonio’s online studio from the convenience of their own homes or businesses. One of the immediate goals of the website will be to help introduce Antonio’s art work to new clients and art collectors who may not have heard of his art work outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. One long term goal is to increase sales throughout the year and to give clients a look at new art work as soon as the artist has completed new paintings.

One of the important content needs is to make available every original piece of artwork that the artist has available to his clients. Another important content need is to have available to his online shoppers fast loading images of his art work. The website should also be an elegantly designed representation of the artist’s vision which he displays through his original oil paintings. The website should also be easy to navigate through and must be able to be viewed consistently with different operating systems and browsers and should not depend on high-speed internet connections. The website will be designed and maintained by the artist but should be written and coded in an orderly manner so that another web designer could maintain and update the site by the artists instructions. The website will not have features that will require specialized or specific programming that might make the site slow to load, or increasing the complexity of the website. The website should be functional and also reflect the artist’s strict demand to quality and precision. The website should also have updated...
