Driving Transformation, Delivering Value
Desired Color Scheme:
Consistent with colors in current logo, icon, and company name
Edgy and iPhone cool, but still with a professional and un-cluttered feel
Accepted File Formats:
HTML, CSS and Photoshop including all layers
Clean, edgy, modern yet professional - "un cluttered" design with compelling, dynamic (Flash?) elements.
No traditional, boring consulting site. Think iPhone cool. Take a risk! Dare to imagine!
Compelling, edgy home page is the key priority.
Home page needs to accommodate intro/content text and some featured services, solutions and client testimonials.
You can get sense of content and find logo, icon and company name (and font) here: http://openesolutions.com
New design must integrate logo, icon, company name (in original font) and their colors. Background should be white.
Top-level pages may vary slightly from home page design. If possible, want to see submissions for home, web site design, and top-level pages.
Number and titles of menu items may change, so please keep this in mind.
Top Navigation Menu:
* Open Technologies
* Contact Us
Desired File Formats: HTML, CSS and Photoshop including all layers.
Not restrained by such things as "You can only have 2 paragraphs here otherwise the design breaks." We will also require the template in Photoshop format so we can perform changes later if necessary.
Should look good in Firefox and IE on PC and Mac.
These sites give you an idea of design creativity we like:

* http://www.pearlfisher.com (compelling entry and navigation)
