Our current site has not been updated in quite some time. We'd like a brand new, fresh look to the site. (http://www.solarpower.org)
We plan on updating the content on a daily basis with informative articles and news regarding solar power. The site we envision would look similar to a blog where we'd show the latest XXX articles on the home page, and an easy way to get to the archive of older articles.
We want to develop a warm and welcoming site to consumers who want to get informed on everything about solar power. We'd also like an easy way for users to locate solar installers by typing in a zip code and choosing a project type (residential/commercial) similar to what is on the site now.
All new look, feel, design, logo, taglines is fair game and desired. We would like a comp for the home page as well as a comp for an article page. We need the site to be cross-browser and cross-platform compatible. Due to this, we'd like no flash, would need to use standard fonts that work across browsers, and would like to avoid special effects on text, etc. (shadows for example).
