The Detective Sites
A small company that builds and maintains niche websites/tools that provide answers to technical questions.
This will be for a new series of websites that share a common logo with variant accent color for each site.
This series of websites will be targeting a world-wide non-technical audience seeking answers to technical issues and questions. Average ages of similar sites are in the 16 to 40 range, but do see older. More often male then female.
We want a clean and professional looking template that will be used for the parent site and all associated sites. Each site will share the same logo (see attached) with a different accent color that needs to be carried into the template.
