We like web 2.0 design. We've included examples of the header, it is flexible. We want to keep it balanced. Want a classy look. Must appeal to the masses, all ages. No wrenches or simple, overused auto repair symbols.
We're pretty much open to any design, with or without logos, you don't have to follow any of the examples we've given. We want to show that we are trusted, established, great place for finding an auto repair professional.
1. I included the US map outline, it was an idea of ours, if someone can make it ROCK we could use it.
2. A small logo is optional, would prefer distinctive lettering and possibly swoops/slashes/etc. An abstract mark would be ok as long as it is unique and powerful.
3. The car logo I included is something we like a little. It conveys excellence. We want to convey that our site is better than the rest but we're not in love with the logo. And it doesn't have to have a car in the logo.
Symbol in logo is optional, using the map outline is optional. Making AutoRepairUS rock all by itself with design is ok too.
We are using a two tone blue theme with white background. 200 x 90 max.
