National litigation support company needs a new corporate website. Functional with a slight flair to stand out.
Desired Color Scheme:
blues, greys, whites
Fresh, clean. I'd love to see examples of your standard corporate templates as well as newer 2.0 styles that stand out.
Accepted File Formats:
All: 5 PSDs(cut/layered), 5 HTML pages, 1 CSS file
We're looking to get out of our old, generic website and into something new, fresh and functional. We'd prefer to stay in conformity with our logo color set, but will consider other design options as well. Please refer to the example websites as examples of designs that we like, however, please incorporate your own elements as you see fit. We're not looking for a clone site, just a website that stands out and is functional. Get creative!
