Description

We are looking for a banner image for our home page.

Dimensions: 940 x 245

Our target audience is executives of large energy consuming organizations. Our typically client is 50 years old and up and usually male. We need a some what conservative image that gives the impression that we are reliable, trusting, and professional.

We want to include the following text on the banner:

"Mercatus Energy Advisors is the leading, independent, energy hedging and risk management advisory firm. We serve as a trusted advisor to businesses and governments across the globe."

We also would like to include a abstract type image on the banner. We do not want something energy related necessarily, just something that is unique yet professional.

We also tend to like lighter backgrounds with contrasting font and image colors but we are open to any ideas.

We like our current home page image but would like something a little more unique and of higher quality.

Please visit our website to get an idea of our colors:

I have attached a copy of our current banner image to get an idea of what we are looking for.
