Our goal with this design was to create a user interface that is not only contemporary and professional, but also easy to navigate and explore. Instead of using dull bulleted lists and blobs of text to communicate Clarity Web Hosting's message, our designer has created a dynamic layout that feels uncluttered while also providing an informational resource for their clients.
For this mock up we opted for a simple scheme of blues and oranges. However, colour is very flexible and Geek Power would be happy to try some other colour schemes too. Colour can very drastically change the mood of a design, so we advise to consider it.
We have selected a grounded and simple sans-serif typeface for all the type on the design for a terse look. This font is web safe and will render correctly across all browsers and platforms.
The Desktop version of the design is optimized for viewing on a laptop or a monitor.
jQuery is the perfect way to communicate the services available to Clarity Web Hosting's clientele, while adding subtle movement to the design.
The top of the website is optimized for ease of usability. This is where the main navigation, including the drop down menu functionality (more on this below), is located to create a navigational hub for the whole site.
With an advanced CSS drop down menu, all of the content on the website is available to the user in just one click. This creates a very smooth navigation experience.
One of the most important functions of the home page is to direct the user where to go. This is why much of this design is dedicated to this purpose. Actionable Items in the form of content boxes, a contact form and the jQuery rotator help to inform the user and entice them to explore the site further to create conversions.
