We want to revamp our current website. The site is 10 years old and while the content is still a good fit (with changes to navigation and flow), the design is quite outdated. We tout ourselves as a technology company and need a website that reflects that. We only need a home page design for now.

In terms of layout, I would like to see top navigation with dropdown headers (understand this is only design, but please show how that might look). I want the top area to be graphical, below have a paragraph about Lanvera and below that, show three push-marketing elements to drive clicks.

Please no images with people. We want icons/graphics only. Colors do not have to match our logo and I want to focus on light grey and blues with pops of color. Our website examples will show you the direction to go there.

Because we want this site to be "technology" focused, we need the design to be clean lines and minimal. I want it to be very clear where the user is to click on for any given item.

The MAJOR item that should be included in this project is some sort of design theme that we can spread across the entire site such as a custom title font or design element like a curve that will go on every page in different areas to create a cohesive theme.

Main menu is: Home, Company, Services, Why Lanvera, Partners, News

We will need a layered PSD file. Can use stock icons/graphics.

Number of pages


Page descriptions

We need a design for homepage only.

Main menu: Home, Company, Services, Why Lanvera, Partners, News

Show dropdown for Services: Print & Mail, Electronic Delivery, Client Portal

I'd like Client Portal with a Username/Password login box on the top right.

There needs to be a graphical element to this page, but no pictures. This can be accomplished using lines/curves/icons/graphics. I would like the graphics to pop using color while the rest of the palate stays neutral.

Existing website

This is a complete overhaul of the current design and navigation flow, so I really don't like anything about it.

Example websites
• Icons on home page – Benefitfocus, Shop, Enroll, Manage, Exchange – these icons are the same size and design type, but have different colors, which brings a more sophisticated and modern feel to the site.
• Font color / style
• Gradient treatment behind content blocks
• Home page has a linear feel, as in you read top to bottom vs. having elements in various places on the home page and having to search for content.
• Four squares at bottom of home page – Request Demo, Featured Webinar, etc – like the graphics in each vs. icons
• We love the APPS section. On the “index” page of this section, we get to read about the various secondary navigation elements before we navigate to that page. This looks clean and buttoned up.
• Within section pages, we like the repeated “Key Benefits” and “More Information” boxes.

Don’t like:
• Large area at top of home page for content. This pushes the bottom content down too far.
• Dropdown on the main navigation – too much information for drop down
• We would like to keep secondary navigation visible while on each page. T his site looses the navigation once you click on a secondary page.
• Background treatment on purple top bar. This looks custom-designed and high-tech.
• Icons inside the stopwatch on home page
• Background treatment on colored blocks on home page.
• Grey background behind site. Fade treatment.
• Left navigation

Don’t like:
• Font
• Left navigation treatment – too simple / low tech
• Light colors / grey
• Splashes of color in the right places – under product line names/logos
• Font size / font type
• Background graphics – square graphic that is presented throughout the site
• Content blocks on interior pages – consistent on every page, while content changes based on page navigated to.
• Header / small paragraphs per page. Less content, more high level information with headers

Don’t like:
• Flash element on top of each page and home page
• Home page has too much content / too busy
• Clean lines
• Colored icons
• Small fonts
• Small illustrative graphics that represent content elements
• Gradient on content block backgrounds

Don’t Like:
• Large graphic at top of home page. We want to maximize space for content and do not want to take up valuable real estate with graphics.
• Home page is too busy / too many content elements
