How pb_designs started their web page design journey

Summary

I require a clean and professional look for a new recruitment company. It should be visually interesting without looking too busy. No coding required. Final design should be delivered as either a photoshop file or a fireworks file. Site should be suitable for someone with a 800x600 screen (I suggest 770px wide), but any form of artwork to the sides to give it a bit of width on larger screen sizes will earn you bonus points :)

Company name

Resource Plus

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

http://www.resourceplus.co.uk

I require a 1 page design for the front page of Resource Plus that can be used as template for the rest of the pages on the site.  Ultimately the menu bar will be text driven, so please ensure that I can convert your menu into a CSS driven menu.  Basically, ensure you use a standard web font (Trebuchet is my fav!).  This is the same for the body text.  Menu can be horizontal or vertical.  Please try and sprinkle some additional colour into the site alongside the main colours of blue and grey (from the logo).  Orange works quite effectively as a complimentary colour, but I'll let you decide.  It's important that the site looks fresh, and blue is the main colour.

The site must have additional imagry (stock photos for example) to help it come to life.  Please make note of my comments in the "what I don't want" section about these photos - it's important it doesn't come across too corporatey, too city based, or American (as this is an English company).

Resource Plus is a new business, offering recruitment and selection services to small to medium size companies in the Thames Valley in the UK. We are offering clients a tailored service to match their needs.
It’s really about saving on recruitment costs for the clients by directly advertising on their behalf and taking all the administrative work as well as interviewing and shortlisting. So a bit like working as the recruiter for the company.
The website should convey a personal and customer focused look without appearing as a one man show.

It's important that the website does not look American, as this is a locally based English company in the English countryside (but please do not try to convey the countryside!)

Wants

Example of sites I like:

http://www.nextaff.com
The shade of the orange is good and the combination with the dark blue seems quite effective.  Also I quite like the site design and the choice of photos. I want to convey the fact that we are an active company that delivers results. At the same time the image should be of dependability. A semi relaxed look to the web page.

If you click on to their processes section, the way they have used graphics to illustrate it is quite attractive.

Don't want

The website should not look overly corporate.  Please be very careful when using stock photos that they do not portray the image of a suit in a large office in London.  It's important that this company does not come across as a big city company, as they are based in the countryside.

Please feel free to use stock imagery, but be careful which ones.
