We're looking for a home page and an inner page that are going to appeal to Large Corporate Business (Target, IBM etc) to take up our staff training packages.
The main focus is on something clever and original while still being a little understated. A big Web 2.0 site is not what we're after!
That said, the design should be something that excites, and is something you'd be proud to have as your own website.
The color scheme that we have in mind needs to be similar to the colors that we have at http://cfgt.com.au and we would like the logo in top right hand corner (text included) to be a part of the design. The color scheme of the site has been built around the logo, so any colors that work with that should be fine.
Please don't go too web 2.0 on it, as this is not the demographic that we're targeting
The design should be simple, with most of the attention going to gradients, designing buttons, menus and layout.
Everything should be subtle and understated and convey a sense of professionalism.
Should have standard header with student login in the top right hand corner
No sidebar for this page please.
A standard menu (part of the header) should be under the logo and login.
This is a sales page so I would like the focus to be on getting them to call.
How you get that done is up to you... let your creative juices flow!
1st Level Inner Page:
Should have the same footer and header as the home page, however this page has 2 columns with the sidebar being on the right.
This inner page will be used to provide more detailed information on a link that they have clicked on the home page.
It will also be used as the main blog page for any updates that we put on the website.
Again see http://www.open.edu.au/public/home for a website that I think gets this right in terms of functionality. Contact details should be at the top of the sidebar.
I don't want to get too heavy on the details as i'd really like you to come up with something original and edgy that represents our company, but that won't scare away the corporates that pay us!
