Our Target Audience:
- Management/Sales/Finance professionals

Purpose of the site:
This is a pre-sales site that will educate customers about Chinese learning courses/softwares. We want them to learn about the benefits of learning Chinese, and show them some of the top courses/softwares.
Here are examples of courses/merchants that will be featured on the site:
- Rocket Chinese http://www.rocketlanguages.com/chinese/

We need a creative design which depicts the purpose of site and appeals to prospective customers mainly travelers and professionals. We want a Web 2.0 design that is clean and easy to navigate.
We would like the background similar to the below listed site; in Red and Black combination but the pattern should be either Chinese characters or something else that represents Chinese language: http://www.thehumanaught.com/blog/g…m-back-up/
