T-Bone did a fantastic job for my web design contest. I required 4 pages and for each of them, the designer put in a meticulous level of work to provide multiple variations and ideas. Really original concepts with very polished layouts. Congratulations again T-Bone on winning, richly deserved. Highly recommended for other contest holders :)

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I have gone through a couple of designs and have not found what I feels best conveys what we do, and that we are the best at it. I'm looking for something clean, yet colorful. Easy navigation and an area to showcase current offerings, news, specials, etc. I would prefer something that can be coded fluid. I like rounded corners and subtle shading. Most of all, this design needs to present us as a professional business but on the cutting edge of design.
