How dara2806 started their web page design journey

Summary

This is a local government site that is needed to help keep the local business community informed and connected - we need a design that is very clean, simple, web 2.0 style, but still trustworthy and authoritative. Layered PSDs only. No code.

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

A:: BACKGROUND
=========================
1/ A logo and some published material already exists for the project but we need a website.

2/ The website will be using our content management system as the backend which requires some design considerations.

3/ Some samples of EXISTING sites based on our content management system are as follows:
- http://www.mitchellbusiness.com.au/…Splash.asp
- http://www.bizmaroondah.com.au/Pub/pSplash.asp
- http://www.manninghambusiness.com.a…pStart.asp
- http://smartplaycg.intuitus-x.com/Pub/pStart.asp

4/ A sample of the logo & printed styles can be downloaded from:
http://www.intuitus-x.com/my/banyul…090220.zip

5/ The parent site is available at:
http://www.banyule.vic.gov.au

6/ The new website should have a similar header to the Banyule parent website (i.e. rectangular format with a photo and the logo). Although the colours should reflect the parent site, how they are used can be different (e.g. the background of the logo may have a red background - see corporate style manual in the attached documents).

B:: STRUCTURE/STYLE FOR NEW SITE
===========================
1/ The website should be pretty easy to follow and should use a top/horizontal main menu system (similar to http://www.manninghambusiness.com.au).

2/ The menu system will have the option of multiple submenus (ie, line, drop down, popout, etc)

3/ The menu structure for the site is listed below:

5/ The main entry page of the site (what we call the "splash" page) needs to display the following items:
- Photo of the Week (+ link to photo competition page)
- Scrolling news items
- A listing of current events
- A simple poll

Please refer to the simple wireframe (dr-20090220-BanyuleWireframe.png) provided in the download package above
