What we want is a clean, professional and yet elegant looking website.
Here is the logo to the website: http://www.extrode.com-a.googlepage…n_site.png
Do the best you can matching the color scheme to the logo.
Aside from just designing the site you are to also engineer the menu system.
Here is the current menu system:
As you can see the menu system must be well designed. We should be easily able to add/remove/edit main and sub menu items. And still keep the design consistent.
Here is a great site for that example http://wordpress.org/
Notice how the design of the site is clean and professional. The menu system is well designed as well. Hence the main menu is at the top and then once I select "about" it dives into another page that has the submenu on the left. It doesn't have to be this way as long as it is consistent and flows well with the rest of the site.
Also notice that "home" page has a different look and feel than the rest of the pages. It's not a splash page but it rather welcoming.
I would like to see a design of the home page and one of the submenu item pages. Also, providing a sample of the contact page will be great as well. That way I can get a feel for the form design. Also, if you can provide us with a search box, that'll be even better! :)
You must also provide all slices to the design. Therefore, they can be easily programmed against.
