This is a new design. Because of the large differences between this and your previous client, you can't just re-use the same ideas with new words.
Design at least a home page (html) and one form for customer data input. The form will be a PHP script that will "know" whether to display the input form or to process the user input. You must write the code yourself.
Needed input includes the following:
Customer's name, address, email, and phone. Do not "scold" the user if they elect not to include some of the information.
How did the customer learn about TCG? (search engine, word-of-mouth, newspaper ad, etc.)
Has the customer ordered from other on-line food stores?
What kind of information does the customer want? (printed brochure, phone call, periodic email, etc.)
At the minimum, you must give the customer relevant feedback after he/she has submitted the form. This must be integrated with the rest of the site design, and should not be a "dead end" page. You should save the submitted information in a text file, which does not need to be linked to the Web site. You should also send a follow-up email to the customer, thanking them for their interest and promising to provide whatever information they have asked for (as read from the form).
For realism and learning, you must also include a privacy statement that tells the customer exactly what you will and will not do with the personal information that they submit. This can be on a linked page.
Turn in a printed copy of your pages (as viewed) and a printed copy of the HTML/PHP code that you write. Staple these together and write your name clearly at the top of the first page.
