What would you like to call it???
« on: January 02, 2012, 06:15:31 PM »
We are working with our developer to create a treasury section of the shop.  I know that Etsy and Artfire both have similar features and they are enjoyed...and now that we have more and more members, there is more and more amazing treasures to chose from. 
Here is the deal, we don't want to call it treasury and are kind of stumped on other names.  Help us out by tossing in ideas and eventually we will set up a poll (with a prize!) for naming the new feature.  Keep in mind that we don't want to use an name that is used for similar features from other sites and we are not looking for "cutsy" names.  We are trying to push the fact that our work is art and we want to reflect that on the site...so let's hear what you got!

If we're pushing the art angle, why not "gallery" or some take on that?

My first thought was also "The Gallery". Maybe the Treasure Trove?

Just a couple of guideline thoughts. One it doesn't need to have the site name in it as they are already there. Two length is a concern one or two words. Keeping simplicity in mind. Cutesy is nice but we need to keep the customer in mind as they are the ones this is directed to. So they need to understand what they are clicking and what they will find so to speak. For Example Treasury I think is a horrible name, the only reason I think anyone knows about it is because of Etsy. Collections however I think is perfect but it is already used by artfire and many other sites. So we don't want to use that. Gallery I do like but not sure if it really represents a sales area, to me a gallery is sort of like a photo gallery like Flickr, but that is my first thoughts, not necessarily right. Just throwing it out there. Kimberly and I have known about this for months and have been bashing our head trying to think of a good name. Obviously we needed help LOL that is why we came to the experts.

Ok, how about these suggestions...Creations, Galleria, or Emporium.  I think Galleria is better than gallery since it represents more like a store front, gallery is more like display, does that make sense?  I do like Emporium too, meaning market. Creations maybe not so much but its an idea..LOL  Hope this helps a little more with ideas...I love using a Thesaurus, that's how I get my best ideas from...same but not the same...

I like the idea of Gallery. 

More ideas:
Exhibition
Art Expo
Expo
Series
Selections
Medley
potpourri or sampler   (these sound less arty)
