We have a CMS and want to roll out a new homepage for our internet directories.
NOTE: We don't want huge design changes; rather, small tweaks to make the directores to appear polished and more professional.
We want to keep the layout the same and don't want to make large coding changes, so stick to the "rough layout", add buttons on the side perhaps? "About", "Submit" "Contact Us".
We don't want to have Twitter feeds, because we're going to run a lot of directories like this and we can't keep different Twitter accounts for all.
This is a GENERAL design, we can roll out to other websites.
WE can change the background images and the icon images easily, so ignore those.
You'll see on the sides (left and right) of the directory that it's very empty, we want to fill this space and give the front end of our CMS a finishing touch.
It's missing just that "something" to make them professional and trustworthy.
