Basically I am giving the designers a wild card on this one, any colors are fine as well as really any design. I like the lighter non over powering colors, so nothing totally black. I would like to have a logo that stands out and is memorable.
I also have a few sites that I like and am going to reference here.
First on my list. I love the host gator site expect for the fact that it is way to cluttered. There is just so much going on that it is to overwhelming. I want my customers to have a welcoming homey experience. Make them feel like we are going to take care of them how grandma would have taken care of them when they were children.
Next, I also like the liquidweb site due to it being pretty simple and informative. Although I do not like the clutter again, its just overwhelming for someone who does not know what they are looking at and last but not least.
We like the simple setup and design of this site as well and its organization of the content via tables.
We also are not looking for a cartoon style site, something more real... with real pictures would be great. I like to see lots of servers and routing equipment and data center style gear.
If you have any other questions please let us know, we would be more than happy to answer them for you.
