Please take a look at current website (http://www.PersicaInc.com ) .
Need it updated and completed. While you can draw inspiration from it please don't feel restrained too much by it. We are obviously not happy with the current design and looking for something better.
UPDATE: based on some entries we have received we need to be crystal clear - we do NOT want you to copy the current design. We are going through the trouble of having the site re-designed because we are obviously not thrilled or impressed with the current design. Please do something fresh.
UPDATE : In general we like less sharp borders and boundaries and more gradients, curves and smooth edges.Use of swooshes are also good. Check out for example a website we recently did http://www.solardental.com for an idea of our tastes. Please also don't just cut and paste the logo and stick it in there somewhere. If you can please be creative in how it flows into the rest of the site so it does not look blocky.
UPDATE : We LOVE transparency effects . Feel free to use on menu items. Clue . Clue :)
This will be a Wordpress Coded website so please keep that in mind in your design.
It will also be a responsive website so need a design that is amenable to looking good when coded in a responsive manner. As we get towards the final stage and if you are chosen as a finalist we will need an example of what site will be designed as when looked at through a smartphone or iPad.
There are 8 pages. A main landing page. 6 subpages under it and a final sub-page under 3 of the subpages which is the same page : a proposal submission page.
Once the main landing page is designed a template is needed for the subpages so they all follow a similar look.
