We are a start up internet marketing company/ consultancy. We offer a variety of internet marketing advice specifically to small businesses. We look to work with people like ourselves, a small business looking to develop. We have clients such as life coaches, personal trainers, solopreneurs, through to hairdressers, accountants, financial advisors, galleries, clothing websites. We're looking to provide a service to the "small guy" and give them a competitive edge at a reasonable price. We take what we do very seriously, we're not cheap, but we offer value for money.
The main goals of the business are to offer a very straight forward, practical, relevant and personable approach to our clients internet marketing needs. Many of our clients have little knowledge or have been given bad knowledge about internet marketing. We're looking to come from an angle of being someone they can trust to provide a service they can easily understand, learn from and gain value from for their business. In essence, to almost hold their hand along the way, a "friend with knowledge."

Each relationship with our clients is a personable experience. We tend to be on the phone a lot speaking with our clients rather than hiding behind emails or "systems." In essence, we want a very personable feel to come across to our clients. We don't want to appear corporate at all, but we do want to look professional.
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.
