A colorful and professional website that uses the green in our logo. Some blues would be nice as well. Unique and eye catching, please! :)
We would like to play up the fact that our service is a cloud based, so maybe something with a blue sky and some fluffy clouds?
The main landing page will require all the standard web page stuff, a menu at the top along with a site map in the footer. A section to list site features and a way to easily contact us via email. We would also like to steer clients towards a product tour or screen cast.
Some site that we like:
http://www.clarizen.com/ -> nice and clean, easy to find buttons.
http://www.voxeo.com/ -> again nice and clean.
http://www.rackspacecloud.com/ -> uniqueness of the site.
I took a few minutes and cannibalized together a mock up of what was in my head before launching this contest. Use it to get an idea of what I need to be included on the main page then take the design down whatever road you want.
The winner will need to provide a layered psd file containing the design of the main landing page. I can then mock up the rest of the pages myself and send it off to be chopped into html.
