How aburns started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is essentially an online brochure for a new business, a two person sales consultancy. It will function as sales collateral as we engage with potential customers for our services. The place where they 'check us out'.
Our target audience is the vast array of companies who sell products and services to oil and gas companies in Canada. Could be anything from the most technical widget supply company, to a merchant bank. We can work with just about anyone.

Business & Consulting
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
The copy for the website is attached, as are images for the 'home' page and 3 inside pages. I need a design that wraps around and supports the photography and copy.
Please think 'warm' color palette-wise. Soft corners; I hate to see so-called design that is just assemblages of rectangles. As you can see from the photography, we are attempting to portray ourselves as we are: approachable and warm.
Probably it makes more sense to design this as a single page, ‘scrolling’ site, to make it more mobile friendly. Basically it’s a four-pager; home, services, how, and contact.
What I specifically need is:
> WordPress web site design creative. WordPress final files to be handed off to my website hosting firm in Calgary.
> design of a logo/word mark around the name, Tribal or Tribal Group. If I need to set up a separate brief for that I can. What I am hoping for is a modern interpretation of 'Tribal'. We're not a bamboo furniture store, so we don't want head-dresses.:) A group of figurines in a circle? Something like that.
>design of a business card for Tribal principals Jeannine and Ashley (see contact page), featuring the above mentioned logo.
Beyond this, I trust the copy I have attached, with the associated images, will give you what you need to 'get it'. Please note there are two images for the 'contact' page
What to avoid
Ugly WordPress sites developed by people who just color and move blocks around. No offense, but I am looking for a designer, someone I can actually talk to.
As an aside, and beyond this starter project, I would like through this engagement to hopefully form a relationship / alliance with a design firm. I have to be able to build a lot of creative for clients, from new websites to PowerPoint but whereas I can write copy, I have no design skills or relationships locally with a design firm anymore (they closed shop).When I did this type of business before over 6 years, I had to build literally dozens of sites and all manner of collateral for my clients with my then design firm partner.
I have worked in the agency business so I have an eye for good design and I really appreciate it. Can you design to the level of the site I mentioned? Then please let's connect, do one good piece together then start collaborating on other projects.
