We need the main home page designed. This is the first page all users will see.
Since we are building all the internal workings of our site at out end and following a certain theme throughout, we can accept any design from you as long as it follows relatively/approximately similar color palette. We are also ok with changing the header and footer to some degree as long as it has some space to implement sub menu items, if that is something you would like to do for your design. But if you can pull off a great looking design while keeping the same header and footer and just playing around in the mid area, that is going to help us a lot. One thing not mentioned in the screenshot is that creating the first survey is actually free, so if you like, a "Free" badge may be used. The logo you currently see is just a dummy logo and will be replaced once we have a logo, but in any case, the logo will have a similar color theme.
Essentially, we want a straightforward messaging on the home page explaining what we do and how we're better (we allow for automatic periodically inviting of user's contacts to the survey), some simple diagram may be nice but its mostly up to the designer if they feel it fits. We want the user to instantly know what SurveyTool.com is, its benefits n persuade them to click the "Create Your First Survey" button. We want the whole page to look very modern and web2.0.
