Very intelligent approach to the layout and graphics. It was obvious he did research into our industry, and chose relevant images. The first home page info graphic didn't work for us, and he happily provided another option based on our feedback. I highly recommend! We have moved into design phase for the whole website, with Gendesign.

How charS started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are an online typing program for K12 schools. The target audience for our site is Teachers, Tech Coordinators, Principals, etc. we want the site to be eye catching and look fun and bright. Adults buy our program but the students who use our program range from 5-17 years old.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We would like a flat artwork, simple color pallate but color pop, design with plenty of white space. Scrolling home page with features and bright and fun animations
example sites we like just for inspiration - please do not be limited to these: we like color and pops of color but not too much color. Any imagery (typing hands etc) needs to be of younger students.
We need one main home page introducing produce that scrolls and a subpage template that fits the theme of the scrolling home page that scrolls into 3-5 product features with cool artwork associated with each feature, Typing Agent is used around the US (and the World) so a US map that has a fun way to show where the schools and districts are that love typing agent (mostly in the US) and A fun way to show teacher testimonials. We could also incorporate the school district logos in the design that are our customers in this area but do not have to. We will need a footer as well with misc links. Important Buttons on Home Page: Get Started For Free - one in the main area of the page and another on the upper right long with a Login button on the upper right.

What to avoid
No blue space theme with stars
We want bright and cheery not dark and foreboding
Not too busy
We do have colors that we are using inside the application that you may want to incorporate into the design (although not required)
The button (accent) color inside program is: #20d5e8
We also use a green #12d461
We also will be introducing our Secret Agent Owl Character who will be part of our fun new logo. If you would like to incorporate him into the design somehow and have fun with him, please do! We can provide artwork for him.
