How Washers, Inc. started their web page design journey

Summary

****FINAL UPDATE BEFORE END**** I really feel terrible that I have not been able to provide the feedback that I was able to at the beginning of the contest. I'm going to provide some final hints to developers....
1. Graphical elements - Must make us say "Wow..." We need the design to be attractive. Incorporate the graphics, don't just place them.
2. Make it functional. Think as if you were our customer. We don't need all the text on the front page, subpages will provide details... tease me...
3. Professional but still Web 2.0ish... Icons are great, I really like the small ones, but they may not be necessary. Maybe as a rollover or next to text items...
4. Don't waste space, but don't crowd. Too much white space can be bad, but I don't want to feel overwhelmed.

There are some AMAZING designs on here and we are really struggling with this decision. It will take us some time to decide. There is STILL TIME LEFT!! WE HAVE NOT PICKED A WINNER!!

Good luck!!!

On the main page, I need an area for news, a link for our services, an introduction section, etc.

We had such great success here with our logo that we are looking to complete our design for our web page as well. We are a small industrial cage and rack washer company that services large pharmaceutical research facilities and hospitals. We work on very expensive, high-end machinery. We maintain, repair, and inspect the machinery and train the facility personnel on operations and maintenance.

READ OUR BRIEF! THERE ARE MANY DETAILS!! Let us know if you need more!

Company name

Washers, Inc.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

After a wonderful experience having our logo designed on 99designs.com, we’ve come back to have our website layout completed by the amazing and talented artists on this site. We are very excited and very serious about selecting our layout from 99designs.com! So much so that we’ve opted to guarantee our contest! Everyone at this site understands that only one person will win the contest, but our pledge to you is that if you take the time to design a mock-up, we will provide feedback. Our goal is to provide 100% feedback on our contest. We will be involved and provide detailed feedback to ALL designers!

We are a small industrial cage and rack washing machine repair company that services high-end machines for pharmaceutical research facilities and hospitals. While we are a small business, we need a professional website that will serve as the first impression for many potential clients.

To get an idea of our industry, please visit the following manufacturers:

http://www.steris.com/
http://www.lynxpg.com/home.aspx

One thing that I will admit off the bat is that we know NOTHING of web design and the intricacies of design. We’re relying on the experts to provide the beautiful designs that we see in the contests on 99designs.com!

The prize of $1200 is for the graphic design. We have specific requirements for the slicing and production of the website that may be beyond the range of many of the graphic designers here. A winning designer that has the skills required to take the .psd to a full operating site (to our specifications) will receive an additional $500!! (You will be required to show proof of talent in the form of completed sites)

Please read the following (it’s long) and let us know if you need additional details!! We stay involved and will provide feedback and guidance for all designs!

Here are the requirements:
- We have attatched our logo in .eps format. While the colors of our logo are set, please feel free to use complimentary colors and your artistic license to create a creative and original design.
- http://www.washersinc.com/99Designs…o_CMYK.eps
- http://www.washersinc.com/99Designs…go_PMS.eps
- We have uploaded some images to give you something to work with in terms of design elements.  We're still looking for more, but this will at least give you a start!  http://www.washersinc.com/99Designs…Photos.zip
- Click here for a document with some guidance on the subpages, which may help you design the homepage!Menu Bar - Horizontal

IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE DESIGN, PLEASE LEAVE US A MESSAGE OR PM US! We will provide guidance throughout the competition. If there are suggestions on how to better design the site, please let us know!! Oh, and I've contacted 99designs.com and I intend to make this a guaranteed contest!

Wants

- 1024 by 768
- A main area for an introduction for our company, an area for recent news, an area that describes our services to link to other pages. We're open to suggestions for other items on the homepage, so please experiment!
- Use the colors from our logo, but also experiment with complimentary colors. We deal with water, so blues and greys are great.
- Web 2.0 style, but with a professional feel.
- Utilize icons in the design (Main Text Area). I use and like the look of Mac style software. Design me a site with a Mac influence.
- Utilize stock icons, pictures, etc. Ideas include anything medical research related (microscope, DNA, lab coat, white rats, etc), wrenches, water, blueprints, electrical diagrams, etc.
- CREATIVITY!!

Don't want

- Designs that remind me of 1999. Stay away from all text. I understand we don't have any pictures, but boring designs will not win.
- Confusing designs.
