What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Would prefer a clean and open look, with an emphasis on photos that blend humans and industry. Blue and white colour pallette. We provide technical expertise and service, and sell time like a lawyer, so incorporating a human/client element theme into the website would be nice. Info graphics would be a benefit (more below). Less is more.
Homepage - we would like a large cross page picture, preferably refreshing images, logo top left, clutter free. An info graphic showing 3 "scenes" would be so great - first scene depicting a nasty contaminated site with toxic symbols and underground fuel tanks, etc.; the second scene showing the remediation process with an excavation, pile of soil, excavator, cross section of groundwater monitoring well; and the third scene showing a cleaned up well developed property with a building, clean water table and symbolism suggesting it's "clean".
Services Page - single page with text space for a brief overview of what we do and why we do it, then list of our services. Banner to follow similar theme of homepage.
Meet The Team Page - same banner theme, with space to have each key team member profile pic and short bio; preferably with listed stats like a hockey card or something fun.
Contact Us Page - we like our current page with the graphic of BC and the little logo symbol depicting our office locations. So something similar with a banner as above would be ideal.
What to avoid
- focus on clean, clear, limited information (i.e. not a lot of text, too much info is not good)
- no black or grey backgrounds
- stay away from the "look how awesome we are!" We really want to focus on having the client see themselves in our website. At TerraWest we heavily invest in our personal relationships and getting to understand our clients. We are an unconventional consulting firm in that we do not lead with our engineering expertise, we lead with our commitment to relationship and support of the clients objectives. We do things to have fun and provide balance and a growth experience.
