Our company website that I would like to re-design is: http://www.impliweb.com
I am looking for something modern, creative, dynamic and professional.
Something that stands out while, above all else, is very easy for people to use.
My target audience are not always very computer literate so everything has to be dead easy to use, navigate and view... but i also want it to look like we are experts in our field of web design and development and can produce stunning websites and impressive effects.
A well thought out layout with big clear buttons, images and text should achieve the easy of use requirement. The layout should be clean, uncluttered, and look professional.
I like glossy web 2.0 styles (similar to apple style icons, buttons, etc) images and layout and include all the relevant social media links such as facebook, twitter, youtube, etc.
Our new website will have all of these, including a company blog.
I want on the homepage near the top (below the navigation menu) some kind of “Featured” section which scrolls or fades in and out with different images and text.
The overall design look and feel that I am looking for would be a smooth, sleek, high quality with a space/universe kinda look.
Similar to the colours and style found here: http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-vi…st=fea0b66
Don’t worry about the existing impliweb logo, in fact if you can do a new logo or anything similar or something you feel would look better with the website feel free to. Otherwise, feel free to just use the existing logo. Whatever you feel looks best.
I also like attention to detail so include any small design elements which stand out or say something different to the usual would be good – this will help in the creativity. It can be anything - for example from instead of “latest news” which everyone uses you can write “What are we up to…” - feel free to think outside the box.
I would like the navigation to be on the top of the design going horizontally across the page. When someone puts their mouse over it, it should also drop down with more buttons. I understand this will be done in coding, but just keep it in mind when designing the site.

I also want a area for a few featured smaller images (which I will update every 3 or so months) with links to other areas on the website which may interest our visitors (e.g. “Local Business Money Maker Program”, “Sell Your Products Online”, “First on Google in one Month – Case Study”, "Get a free online quote", etc)

P.S. We outsource most of our work to other web designers and coders. We are always looking for new, talented, people to join our team! One of the reasons we are doing a design contest, is to find potential new web designer(s) we could work with again in the future.
Brief history about company and this project:
Impliweb is a web design, development and SEO company based in London. We have been running for over 5 years and have been getting more and more busy with ever-increasing and demanding clients as time has gone on. This year is our busiest year yet - and as a results, our own website has been a bit neglected and hasn’t been updated in a while. But as more new potential customers are finding and visiting our website, and due to the very big plans we are bringing out in 2012 (new offices, new staff, new clients, etc) we feel now is the right time to re-design and develop our existing website from the ground up.
