Our company is an IT solutions firm providing consulting services, contract IT professionals. We work primarily as a defense contractor with the US Department of Defense. It is important that all designs portray a professional, clean image. We do not want pictures of servers or other random IT related equipment on the page. We are not fond of pictures of people working in an office either.
Essentially we need an overall site concept and aesthetic designed which takes into account our existing logo, color scheme, and business card designs (provided below). Our current "place holder" web site can be viewed at http://www.vykincorp.com. Please DO NOT use this page as an example of what we want. We put this together ourselves and we are not designers.
Please provide a design for the home page including an editable css based navigation system including at least the following: contact, about us, careers, news. Please incorporate a footer that allows for navigation as well as copyright etc.
Please provide a design that will act as a template for all other pages within the site (we will integrate them later). This page can be very similar to homepage design but we would like to have something on each page that indicates where the user is within the web site (not bread crumbs...use your imagination and we will provide feedback).
Submission must be coded in valid XHTML and CSS , and render perfectly in IE6, IE7, FF2, FF1.5, and Safari. Winner will submit all necessary files ( .html, .css, and images) including orginal .psd/png files with layers intact.
