We're want a complete redesign our corporate website. We're open to just about anything but would really like to implement a 1930's/40's Retro look. Not sure how to make that happen on a website but that's why we need you! We like to be different and whimsical but we cater to a high-end clientele that appreciates our professionalism. The site needs to make it easy for anyone who lands there to contact us immediately, join our email list or become a FB fan. Navigation must be simple and we like WP for the flexibility that widgets provide though our priorities are SEO (we've got that under control), conversion, style.
Our existing site is 980px wide to fit an ipad which is an important criteria for our owner. Main content section should be at least 485px wide. We don't mind a flash element but need to make sure it doesn't compromise SEO (in other words, the main copy on the home page needs to be text).
In the past we've featured 4 different things in our marketing - our logo (of course), our crazy owners Mike and Jeff, our distinctive truck, and Mr. Cabrillo (an animated version of our white-uniformed technician). We would welcome designs with the logo and any of the others.
I've attached a recent logo, truck and Mr. C, but don't have a good picture of M&J at the moment. Can provide one soon.
If at all possible, we'd also like to include this list of phone numbers for the cities we service if we can do it in a stylish way that displays on every page. We might have to just use a widget.
