We don't want to look corporate, but we do want to look professional, but in a conversational, approachable way. We want to look distinguished and innovative.
We have a logo already designed that we'd like you to use. feel free to amend this if you wish as we're open to all design ideas.
What we need:
home page design
template for service page
(wireframe enclosed for both)
We will also have a thesis wordpress blog, so please keep this in mind with your designs. We'll take care of the building of the wordpress blog, but we'd like to be able to match the design as closely as possible to rest of the site.
We'd like you to design in photoshop and be able to convert easily into HTML and CSS. We don't want any Flash on the site.The files need to be provided in psd with layers.
We like the current design trend of using words with big font to catch attention, please incorporate this into your design.
We like a tabbed top navigation for the "services" page, but we're open to ideas!
We also like the fact that a lot of sites are using background colours again. We feel this is a major factor is displaying some personality. However, we'd like the main content areas in the "services" pages to have a white background.
Please make the site simple for users.
Please take a look at our attached documents for references of sites we like.
