Brief Overview
Who we are: We're a small group of engineering professionals in Houston that specialize in technology oil and gas. We started our own company so that we could work on projects that excite us as well as enjoy a level of independence not possible working for big employers. What we do: Electronics, Software, and Automation. Electronics - We design embedded (custom) electronics for speciality oil and gas applications. Software - We create software for embedded devices and desktop applications. Automation - We use National Instruments products to automate drilling rigs. We're a member of the National Instruments Alliance Partner program.
Brand Name

Erdos Miller

Target Audience
We're targeting Oil and Gas business in the Houston area. We enjoy working face to face with our clients and Houston's Oil&G industry is massive. We've primarily worked with small businesses (1-20Million/year). Our primary target is business to business sales. We're targeting companies that deploy or are looking to deploy electronics/software based products that do not have strong in-house engineering teams.
Requirements
We're looking for a word-press theme that captures who we are; that we're passionate about what we do; and that we do it well. Ideally we'd like to have a template that can handle the home page, a list page (for clients and videos) and an article page for case histories and articles. We'd like the home page to be simple, but give an accurate picture of what we do. (We like the homepage of: http://www.airbnb.com/) We don't want a blog-based theme. Site Content (that we're going to add): - Case Studies - Descriptions of the projects we worked on and how we achieved clients goals. - General Information - Location, contact, capabilities. - Tutorials/Screencasts - We're going to do a series of tutorials on how to build custom electronics and software going over the basics of getting started. - Client List - At this point we're not going to be using blogging/twitter. Our current website: http://www.erdosmiller.com/ I've uploaded our logo files, business cards and some stock images we have the rights to.
Coding
The winning design will be coded by a 99designs coding partner.

      Hi All,

      Thanks for all of the amazing submissions so far. I've been unavailable for the last couple of days as we've been moving our offices and have not been able to review new designs and reply to messages. I have therefore extended the contest for an extra two days to be fair to all of the new submissions. Everyone will receive final feedback within 24 hours. This will be the last extension.

      Hi All!

      Thansk for all of the submissions so far! We're really enjoying all of them.

      A couple things:

      We're a small group of professionals in Houston and we want to appear that way. We don't want to look like an energy giant, we want to look like an approachable firm.

      We'd love to see some darker designs coming in. We don't want you to feel limited by the stock images and logos we've put up so far.

      Thanks for all of the submissions! Keep up the good work!

      Regards,
      Ken
