We are a Tuscan Italian Restaurant. Our old site is very plain and we want to get a new look (we don't like the guy just so you know). We are looking for a front page and preference will be given to someone that creates an inner page (though it is not required).
Here is our logo and our fonts- Please make sure to use our full brand name including the catering part
Lets talk about sites that we like.
The main one we want to base our site off of is
We do not want a complete flash site however. A flash header or maybe an intro page would be fine but we need to edit the inner pages and we do not want to use a flash editor. We like the modern feel of it. We like how there are no boxs. Tying this modern feel and combining it with a Tuscan/Italian feel is the challenge.
A great Tuscan site we like is
however it is a little "classical" or "old" feeling. Lastly here is a minimialist site we like but feel free to ignore this if we are giving you to much information. PFChangs
I don't want to take up too much of your time reading but we want an area where we can show featured food items.
Here is a picture you can use for the feature but you don't have to.
We like a left hand navigation but that is not mandatory (however we will want add mouseover effects - you don't have to do or show this at all however, just keep it in mind). Sample text for the front page can be pulled from our current front page.
The colors we like are:
and of course #FFF and #000...these are rough guides however you don't have to stick to them exactly or anything at all.
Here is a sample another graphical designer did
We felt like this designer created a nice site but it was kind of average. We didn't like the squareness, especially the main food image there.
I will answer emails quickly so please ask any and all questions. If you want more info/material don't hesitate to ask.
Will not need coding, just PSD files for home page and one interior page.
