I know that this question might be tossed out, and I apologies for that, but here goes nothing:
I work at a small call center in Sweden as a IT-technician. Since we´re so small we cant afford to hire any designer, and so it´s up to my department to design something good looking.
The website we have at the moment is.. lacking, in lack of better words. It was designed by one of the technicians that was with the company from the start, and, needless to say, he is proud of his work.
So, my question to you is: what would be the best approach to change our current website into something good looking and user-friendly?
The most important points would be:
- Structure; personally, I want a simple wireframed design with simple colours, similar to this: http://www.subtraction.com/, but that might not go with either the others at my department, or with the brand of the company itself.
- Colours, this speaks for itself, I think.
Our current website is this: http://www.k2c.se/.
(If this is too over-arching to answer, then this is my question:
What principles, or guidelines, should I go for, considering the colour of our current logo and brand (Purple/white on black), when designing the website of my company (in the telecom-business)? Colours, structures, other (good looking) sites in the same business?
