Designers have creative license based on our Link3 logo (attached). The color scheme should be based on the logo..
We want our site to be minimalistic but this does not mean we want large amounts of blank, white spaces. We think minimalistic can and should be colorful and friendly.
More importantly than anything however, users must think, "this looks cool -definitely something I want to try." As such, we want you to be innovative in your designs.
We don't mind if you include extra to what we require as per the page details section, but it must work. Designs must feel cohesive and well conceived. We also don't want anything cluttered. A cluttered website is less usable and, usability is everything!
Most importantly, we want a couple of rotating pictures on the main page to address the following:
Our business surrounds Health Care, Financials, Government, International privacy, security and so on. The pictures should be related to these industries but still focus on the fact that we are a software company, i.e. the pictures should not give users an impression that we are a hospital or bank.
We want our customers to know that we provide Software as a Service (SaaS). So if the pictures, or one of the rotating pictures could show the "Cloud Computing" concept, that would definitely be a big plus to the design.
