How Pivotal started their web page design journey


We are a Real Estate Investment Consulting Firm. Our intention is to adjust our public site to be two things 1) A destination resource for investors. 2) The site needs to be much more sales oriented and be a strong lead generator. Currently the site is very word heavy. We need the pages to be more visual using more graphics and less words to illustrate who we are and what value we bring to the table as succinctly as possible. We have a partial redesign up at a private address listed below. This is your starting point. The original public site is still up and is also listed below

Partially redesigned site not complete is…final.html . important to note the only navigation links that work correctly are on the main page

Existing public site is – This site should be used for reference only the most current version is not public but can be found at the url above

fit with our current branding and simply and cleanly capture attention and

We want to maintain the existing page structure ie: logo and cloud theme. We are however open to a new tag-line. We want a visually pleasing and elegent design that utilizes whitespace. All design submissions should fit with our current color schemes and branding. We want each pages focus to be on what is important and that is lead generation.

Please let us know if you are also capable of coding and back end development work.

Don't want

We do not want techie looking designs. We do not want design that is overly busy or disruptive to a clean and elegent focus.
