Your Irvine Chiropractor
Chiropractor from Irvine, California.
Like clean, Web 2.0 with gradients, bold heavy Helvetica fonts, no-reflection.
Warm colors - we don't want a clinical, sterile doctor site. Pictures of families and people enjoying activities and life are important.
1. Generate leads for people that are looking for a Chiropractor and want to call or schedule a visit.
2. Be an online brochure to answer questions and interest people.
3. Below the main header, we want to list Common Conditions like the list here: http://doctorken.com/problems.html and a place for some testimonials.
4. We don't have a logo, so you can just use some Web 2.0 font, or create something if you wish.
I have attached a wireframe for the basic layout.
Also, please look at these examples for websites we like:
We really like how the images "pop" out of these sites. We love the use of a big image that uses gradients and colored brushes on top or around the picture to make room for the "call to action" (like "Call Us Now For an Appointment". Then use faded gradients around the image to integrate the heading and form for them to fill out. The images fill out the space. They are big.
If you read the following articles on "polish", "quality" and "negative space", we will love your design:
And Using negative space (see their demo):
Functionally, this is everything the home page needs (refer to the wireframe)
1. Logo, Phone #, and space for 3 - 5 pages in the top navigation.
2. Beautiful picture w/ call to action and an arrow or something subtle to point to the form on the right. The image should be large and fill the space. I DO NOT just want a picture in a rectangular box. I want the picture to either "pop out" of the box, or to fade into the top or body and work with the text around it.
3. a form containing a header, smaller description, name, phone, email, submit button and privacy statement on the right hand side.
4. Under that, a place for the main blog, extra content and a sidebar.
I can't say it enough - imagery and polish, imagery and polish. I want it to look like it was created in 2010.
Common Complaints From Completed Projects.
1. Don't make the top of the page vibrant with color, and then forget about the rest of it and make it different greys.
2. The image should use gradients, brushes, fades to integrate it behind the form. It should also "pop out" of the box if possible.
3. Don't go too crazy with boxes. I dont want box with an image, with a box for a form, a box for a phone, a box for each heading, etc. You can achieve much of the same effect just using spacing correctly
