We need a very clean, simple, Web 2.0 style site for our startup currently named DataSolutions.
The primary design color is orange. The current icon we have for internal use is attached below. We want an orange that relates to the icon but is aesthetically pleasing(unlike the icon). We do not want gradients, it needs to be very clean and simple. You can choose one or more colors for the design that complement the orange you use. I don't care what the color/s are as long as the people can tell that the orange is our "official" color and the other color/s are pleasing to the eye.
I have attached a wireframe below that will give you an idea of the format of how the design should look. Our inspiration for the wireframe was http://www.37signals.com(1st) and http://www.pownce.com(2nd). We love 37signals because they do not provide too much text that people won't read anyway. All of the information about their company and products is big and easy to read. We like the idea of the banner that spans the entire width of the page just much like the yellow banner at 37signals, but don't feel limited to using that element if you don't want to.Â I also love the color scheme of http://www.ellislabs.com.Â They do a great job of bringing a lot of color to the page without being overbearing and still looking professional.
I will note that the the wireframe lines are there so you can see the format, not because we want the lines there. The width should be around 840px.
**DO NOT USE THE ICON IN THE DESIGN**
