This will be a home page. The things that would need to be on their homepage are as follows: they need a slider type banner at the top that goes all the way across. They will have pictures of their work inside of here. They need some sort of call to action button that says "Free Quote", and a place where their phone number and email can show prominently. They would like an area for a brief company intro, list of services provided, testimonial's and possibly an image from their work portfolio or at least an area or button that emphasizes it -- If this could all fit.
TEXTURES, COLORS: The type of work they do involves asphalt and dirt. Black and yellow with touches of red would work well as a color scheme like in their logo. Textures could be dirt, asphalt, yellow lines like on a road... etc -- but used very subtly!. Their logo sits on a black background so plan on making the background -- at least where the logo is - black.
Remember this is a business site. It can be fairly conservative. Even though there will be black in the design we don't want the business to have to much of a "dark" or "edgy" feel. The images in the banner will also brighten things up.
Navigation would be:
Home -- About Us -- Services -- Portfolio -- Testimonials -- Contact
OVERAL FEELING: We want the site to have a strong, well established, professional feel. We want to have subtle textures and a nice clean look. Nothing wacky or cute.
Site width - We like 960px width on the site.
