How uma midwest started their web page design journey
We are a global mining company primarily focused on Natural Stone, mainly granite and marble mining in India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam etc. We are among the top 3 companies in Natural Stone mining in India. We have won the best mine award for the year 2009 on a national level and are also a recognized 'star export house'. Now we have diversified into exploration and mining of Coal. We have Coal mines in Mozambique which contain a mix of thermal and coking coal. Our current website is http://www.midwestgranite.com which has only information about our natural stone operations. We would like to change the skin of this website and focus on the Coal operations and have minimum information on our natural stone business. We plan to go for an IPO in March 2011 on ASX exchange, Australia hence would like a very professional looking website.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience are global investors, but mainly the Australian investors both high net worth individuals and also institutional investors including large Australian securities firms like Patersons, JW Were Gold Man Sachs, Bell Potter Securities, RBS Morgans, Wilson HTM, etc..The idea is to remember that the company is going to go for an IPO hence a vast range of investors would be looking at the site before investing.
I have attached some pictures to this profile. A professional looking website is the highest priority and it should not be too busy, i.e. not too many things happening. Websites of other Coal Companies are listed below in the order of our liking, the best one being Riversdale mining.
Please make the website on these lines and also try and use the colors on our logo as the company logo is not going to change. I have uploaded the logo design, for getting the exact corporate color, the exact green color, please use the RBG color code RED-58%, GREEN-158% and BLUE-156%. Do not use any funny colors or cartoons. Should be a more 'Professional Corporate looking' Website.
