The company is a global subsea contractor, as such this should be a fresh design for an International audience (with a North American focusâ€”will only be developed in one language-English).
Our World is Under the Sea
Desired Color Scheme:
Has to work with the red and blue in the logo
Business Professional, Clean, Modern
Accepted File Formats:
Layered Formats (.psd or .tiff)
We are looking for a modern and innovative design with a somewhat conservative slant. A clean and professional design, but nothing really "Web 2.0" in terms of style. This B-to-B organization services very large subsea and energy companies and it's target audience is mostly "C" level so the design should first appeal to executive level folks and be easy to read and have an obvious navigation structure.

The content (this is just placeholder copy) is as follows:
Gulmar Offshore specializes in subsea services: engineering, construction, geophysical and geotechnical surveys, pipeline stabilization, pipeline maintenance and repair, cable installation, pipeline and cable trenching, offshore maintenance and commissioning services.

Our group owns four DP vessels, â€œFalconâ€, â€œEagleâ€, â€œCondorâ€ and â€œBadaroâ€, and are in the process of acquiring 4 new vessels.
We'd like to see examples with a graphic area at the top of the site (may ultimately be Flash) that contains a photo, either this or a stock image of a ship that has a bit more interest or one that is related to subsea construction, shoot, maybe even deep sea-life...
Also, sections on the page containing:

This is just the beginning if we find the right person, the winner of this contest is likely to be asked to design more work. This client has contracted us to produce several things (we currently have a contest for a brochure cover running right now as well) in addition to the entirely new website.
Good Luck and feel free to ask any questions or let us know if more information is needed. Thanks!!
