AMD Industries, Inc. (http://www.amdindustriesinc.com) is an acid mine water purification company. Our clients are coalmines and Departments of Environmental Protection - read more about our industry in the brief. The clients we cater to are mostly male professionals, who need to comply with DEP regulations.
We do NOT have an existing website. We want a simple design homepage. The site should be HTML Coded. We do not envision having a lot of copy; we definitely would like to include graphic images that shows clean water. We want a classy, and simple modern site. The logo was designed on this site and can be referenced by contest number 12570. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRICE IS FOR ALL PAGES – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CREATE 5 SEPARATE PAGES AS THE FOUR SUBPAGES WOULD BE VERY SIMILAR IN DESIGN TO THE HOMEPAGE.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are in the process of creating a new look and feel for our company, AMD Industries, Inc. We recently had a new logo created (via 99designs) and now in the process of creating our stationary and business cards. The next and probably most important step is the website. This is going to be the main source of driving NEW business.
SITE MUST BE HTML CODED- Item 1...We want to utilize our company logo's color as the color scheme on the site.- Item 2...Would love to have a flash element embedded on the front page.- Item 3...We want images on each page that represents our industry which is basically purifying the acid in drainage water in the coal mines.- Item 4...We want simple and clean lines - nothing to "out there"- Item 5...Very simple - not a lot of copy on the front page - we want the message to be clear, yet simple.- Item 6...Site should be masculine - as the owners and majority of clients are male.- Item 7...The site needs to have the front page and 4 sub pages. They are About Us (bio of owners); What we do (2 paragraphs of our strategic services - this page could also have a list of more tactical items; Our clients and case studies (should include both client URLs and pictures) and ten contact page. I want to have both the contact and home buttons either on the top of bottom of each page.- Item 8...For the front page - this is where we need to make a great first impression - something very simple, yet impactful. We are open to any ideas, but tend to like to keep the copy simple.- Item 9...The visual element of what our company does is strong. Acid mine drainage (AMD) occurs at about 70% of the world’s mine sites. It is a naturally occurring process that leads to the contamination of water and occurs when water and oxygen react with exposed sulphide minerals in waste rock, tailings, rock cuts and underground workings, picking up heavy metals such as copper, zinc, cadmium, nickel, cobalt and arsenic. The result is a cocktail of heavy metals dissolved in weak acidic water which is toxic to the environment.Because acid mine drainage can create an environmental liability that remains long after a mine has ceased operations, it is fully regulated in most jurisdictions and must be treated. Environmental regulations around the world make the treatment of contaminated water and its sources the mining industry’s single greatest liability. A water concept would be ideal!
- Item 1...A lot of room for copy on the front page.- Item 2...Anything looking dated or cartoony or feminine.- Item 3...Soft colors are a NO.
