We are already planning a blog based web site - and have that well under way. However, we are looking for a beautiful "front door" page that will give the calming sense and entry to the content.
This is home landing page of the site. Please see the designs and sketches for what we're looking for.
Despite the American Shaman name, we definitely DO NOT want the website to look or feel native American or tribal. We are looking for something vibrant, clean and inviting and that plays off the wireframe design we have provided.
Color and Font: Color wise I’m drawn to violets, indigos and silver although we are open to whatever strikes the designer's fancy. But please avoid fall colors (rusts golds browns olives). We'd like the font/s to be easy to read and slightly feminine.
We have included two things as design help.
1. The background image that is a design mandatory (Rose.png). The ROSE logo shape must play a prominent role in the page layout. It can be faded way back as a background or you can change the color, or play with it in any number of ways - but the overall shape and presence must be there.
2. Also We have provided a "sketch" wireframe (Rose-with Navigation.Png) of what we are envisioning from the way the front page will look where the navigation will be on the page. Again, the font treatment, or whether you use Buttons, or however you decide to treat the navigation is up to you. But we need all of those categories present on the home page.
Please note that our vision is something very clean and simple - with not alot of "extra" stuff other than the Rose... If you're inspired to show more - please do... But our original thought was the rose, a nice font treatment and that's really it....
