We want the site to accomplish two goals: 1) A lead generator for clients seeking service professional provider referrals; and
2) A destination resource for potential Network Partner service providers.
What we do as a company is work with entrepreneurs and managers to determine what service providers they need and then match them with people in our network or search for the right provider for them. Its a matching process and is a unique way to get a referral for hiring non-employees. (Employers often use search firms and their is no search firm like ours.)
Please let us know if you are available for addition design work and are capable of coding and back end development work.
6degreesCONNECT.com Six Degrees Connect Tagline - referral match
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
For this contest, we ask that designer submit a home page and a secondary page. The pages should start all over with the new logo, tagline use. I will email language for the pages as requested. I will also email logo files.
Here is a list of vertical links and horozontal links. Please see equibrandconsulting.com to get an idea of the use of these links.
Home Page -Should have a branding effect and a terrific description of our company.

• We want to completely revamp the look with our new logo and tagline "referral match."
• We want a visually pleasing and elegant design that utilizes whitespace. Very clean.
• We really like the idea of using the gray circular watermark that shows up on 99designs when you search "six degrees" but is not contained on the logo files. It is a light gray circular design around the whole logo and softens the look.
• Use black and gray with a gradation of blues or grays. Other colors can be integrated but should not feel too busy or campy.
• We are located in Austin TX home of the longhorns. A second color could be Texas orange for links and such and also a pic of Austin would be great.
• Really like the site: equibrandconsulting.com for the structure but made into our own. They are a marketing consulting firm. We like a designer look and feel - really simple but our own.
• Our brand is professional, sharp with a unique flair
• If you decide to do the second page on who we are - please provide a better layout for the pictures which is really bad on the current site.
• Every page should have a button for Request a Referral and Join Our Network
