Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Male & Female American Adults ages 20-50

This population will include:
- Young adults looking to get married
- Adults struggling in their marriage
- Parents of children & teens
- Women struggling with eating disorders

Requirements

I need something classy and with a pop! NO FLASH. The site must be mobile-friendly.

I want some eye-candy! Professional but something that makes people go, "now this is a legit shrink!"

I need something simple, Zen-like and clean.
It's gotta look professional but fresh.

Think about the feeling after you brush your teeth - it's fresh, it's clean and it leaves you feeling healthier.

Color schemes that I think would work best include:
Green
Brown
Light blue
Gray
Orange

Make good use of white space.

Stay away from black backgrounds. Remember, think FRESH!

In fact, go brush your teeth and feel the freshness if you're looking for some design inspiration for my site.

Number of pages

4

Page descriptions

NOTE: I will upload my LOGO in a couple of days.

Page #1: Home Page
Things or boxes that must be on the homepage:
- a newsletter sign-up box to receive a free eBook.
- Speaking schedule box (similar to http://www.michaelhyatt.com
- Social media buttons.
- hand writing (similar to http://globetrooper.com)
Two things the handwriting should highlight include:
A. Schedule an appointment (counseling)
B. Book Cesar (speaking)

- The main area where pictures change (similar to http://globetrooper.com)
- I am BIG into social media so your design has got to make room for it on the home page. Including twitter feed, Facebook followers, YouTube channel video, linkedin, and a blog feed box.

- I also like that some of the pages offer opportunities to do polls.
- It must also have a box or something that says, "Get to know Cesar" <-- which will be my "About Me" page eventually.

Page #2: Counseling
The counseling page must be able to highlight 3 things:
- Forms
- Individual Services
- Couples Counseling
- Eating Disorders

Page #3: Speaking
Speaking pages must highlight 4 things:
- Book Cesar <-- form
- Meeting Planners <- a convenient place to download things like my one-page bio, photos, introductions, etc

- Counseling Workshops <-- a convenient place listing workshops.

- Church & Ministry <- an informational page.

Existing website

My Current Site: http://www.CesarGamez.com

We started doing a website but I don't like the direction it's going. I trust 99designs.com so I'd like to give you guys my business.

What I liked...
1. Prominent place for logo & contact info.
2. I like three areas of focus at the top.
3. I also like the area to highlight 5 things but it's not necessary of you do a good job distributing things on the website.

I don't like the gray on the site and RED is too much of an aggressive color.

Example websites

First site I like: http://globetrooper.com

What I like from this site that I gotta have!
1. hand writing. I think it's trendy and I think it makes it look good.
Two things the handwriting should highlight include:
A. Schedule an appointment (counseling)
B. Book Cesar (speaking)

2. The main area where pictures change. I want that.
3. I am BIG into social media so your design has got to make room for it on the home page. Including twitter feed, Facebook followers, YouTube channel video, linkedin, and a blog feed box.
4. I also like that some of the pages offer opportunities to do polls.

BTW, my blog is http://www.FamilyInsights.net
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second site I like: http://michaelhyatt.com
I know it's wordpress.

What I like about it and what I need to have on my site:
1. The "click here" in the corner, but I think that's more coding than graphic design. However, keep in mind that I want that.

2. Speaking schedule box.

3. Social media buttons.

What I don't like about Michael's website is that it's too gray. Makes me think of death. Not good for a counselor.
