How Shirley Taylor started their web page design journey

Summary

I need you to design my home page so it looks fun, fresh and modern, and completely different to my company website. I'm a communication trainer, and a writer of books on communication skills - so perhaps you can bear this in mind for the overall look and feel. I'm really wanting a web 2.0 makeover!! Hope you can help me!

Company name

Shirley Taylor

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

I’m a corporate trainer, and I head my own company, ST Training Solutions Pte Ld. I am also an author of several books. My company website http://www.shirleytaylortraining.com gives full details of the work of my company, which is to organise and run public workshops and my annual conference ASSAP. The company website works very well and I’m very happy with it and don’t want any immediate changes there.

However, I also have a personal website, http://www.shirleytaylor.com, which is completely separate. In fact, http://www.shirleytaylor.com existed long before http://www.shirleytaylortraining.com. This is looking rather old now, and I need improvements making to make it easier for people to find different sections.

I'm wanting to give my personal website a completely new look. My ST logo will remain of course, and I’d like to keep the colours in keeping with the general theme of golds/oranges/reds, but apart from that I’m very open to a complete change in concept and look. I want my personal website to be very different from my company website.

The main thing about my website is to give information – it will be a source of reference for people wanting to find out more about me, my books, about effective communication, e-mail writing and business writing skills – which is basically what I do in my training. All my books are on communication, e-mailing and business writing too.

Here are the main headings for the menu bar:

- About Shirley
- Shirley’s Books
- Shirley’s Workshops
- Articles
- A-Z of Bloopers
- Photo Gallery
- Useful Links
- Contact

I don’t mind the concept of some icons on the front (like the ones currently along the bottom) but they must be much more funky and modern. They should be:

- Shirley’s Books
- Shirley’s Workshops
- ST Training Solutions (this will link to my company website)
- Newsletter

I will be getting some new photos done, but for now you can use the current one on the home page as the main one of me.

So, there you have it. I’m really hoping for some very creative, fun designs, something very novel and very different.

Wants

- Colour scheme must be in keeping with reds/golds/oranges, apart from that I'm very open to any concept.
- Creative, modern.

Don't want

Boring corporate stuff.
