Recruitment for the advertising industry
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Black and white, with a different large image on each page (select stock photography - not too dark!), and a quote overlayed on each image which is connected to the main body content (all copy supplied).
Needs to be responsive so works across large to small desktops (ignore mobile for now - this will be totally separate).
I had some initial designs completed then realised that I had overlooked the issue of background image resizing. And then also that I am truly a lousy designer. Please DO NOT copy my design 'style'. Instead refer to the reference site I gave 'diehlgroup.com'.
I am including my attempt as it contains all the content I want to use, so it is a useful wireframe.
I was hopelessly heavy handed, too dark, old fashioned font choice, poor image choice, etc... basically I can't design.
Note that I am also going to commission a new logo, as a separate project.
full wireframes provided
What to avoid
lots of different colours (max 1 colour in addition to b/w)
heaps of additional content, not included in the wireframes
It's a 4 page website. I haven't included a contact us page yet, but it will need one. Just a simple message box. However I feel like basic contact details should be visible on all pages: phone number and email address.
