We are seeking a new design for our website homepage and content pages. We would like something that is not a simple rehashing of our existing site.
The new design should be clean and uncluttered, and simple to navigate, but should not be not overly sparse. We prefer a horizontal nav bar header/footer layout over a vertical sidebar layout. It is important that the new design look very professional and modern without appearing too dry or corporate.
One of our most important features is simplicity, so the website design should convey a sense of visual simplicity. Please review our current website at http://www.interbill.com to get an idea of the relative volume and depth of content we currently provide, but do not feel as though you must reproduce the exact same number of navigational elements.
We are looking to simplify and improve upon what we have, and we are open to concepts that reorganize and/or optimize how we present everything, in fact we would like to reduce the number of main navigation items down to something like 5 or 6.
We do not want any kind of drop-down menu system.
The homepage should drive users to take a free test drive of our product.
There should be a space on the homepage for various insignia such as the verisign seal and TRUSTe seal, as well as the various social networking sites, such as linked in, facebook, twitter. These items should be located somewhere at the bottom of the page.
Please do not attempt to match our logo font in the headings or other text in the design. Avoid using all-caps, small-caps or fonts with serifs.
