I have 3 web sites that need new homepages. I am looking for a redesign of the homepages/landing pages including headers, footers and backgrounds. One site has a homepage with most of the information already. The second has most information also. I will be working on a rough draft of the homepage for the third site. I am looking for a designer vs. a programmer (unless the programmer has design skills of course).
Site 1. [url removed, login to view]
This site has a working homepage that contains most information. I would like to incorporate a clean redesign that is professional and functional. This site has a Wordpress back end that should be able to incorporate the redesign, mainly the header and footer. Presentation is the key, whether that be text or banners for some of the information, such as the link for "Dog Trainers". I hope to get neighbors of barking dogs to click on the [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] sections and dog owners to click on the merchandise, forum(s), dog trainers, or dog owner info page.
Site 2. [url removed, login to view]
Homepage redesign. Current site contains most information. This site will be completely redesigned (not included in this project) It will be very simple. This is where I will convert visitors to customers.
Site 3. [url removed, login to view]
I am currently working on a rough draft for this homepage, that will contain the information that I would like to include.
These sites are tied together so they need to compliment one another. One is for dog owners and two are for the neighbors of barking dogs. Got Barking? is the mother site that either sends visitors to the BarkEnder sites or keeps dog owners within the Got Barking? site. [url removed, login to view] is the ecommerce site for the neighbors of barking dogs and [url removed, login to view] is the forum and organization to "End Nuisance Barking".
[url removed, login to view] is the anchor for all 3 sites. It should have a solid feel. Positive and geared towards addressing the problem of nuisance dog barking by educating dog owners on how to train their dogs and giving the neighbors of barking dogs an option.
The page will feature:
(#1)BarkEnder(.com) and it's products. Currently this takes up 1/2 the page. This can be emphasized in a smaller section. but it has to be the section that sticks out the most. This is half of my target audience and I want there to be no doubt that they are 1/2 of the issue. If they click on the link(s) it will take them to www.BarkEnder.com. This is not .org.
(#2)Got Barking? Products/Merchandise such as t-shirts and the Got Barking? Forum and Information for dog owners.
(#3)Link(Banner) to www.BarkEnder.org.
(#4)Information with Link(Banner) to "Dog Trainers" page.
(#5)Link to "Info for Dog Owners" page.
(#6)Section (Link, Banner) to PETCO. I hope to drop PETCO soon and get a major advertiser. This will be a small section for now.

Main page will feature:
(#1)BarkEnder products. Currently only 2, Code Red and Code Yellow (anonymous letters to dog owners).
(#2)Section with banner or product information for "Bark Control" products such as ultrasonic devices. Should be a banner or link to product page or advertiser web site. I currently do not have an advertiser but I would like to put up a small section or banner that says "Advertise Your Bark Control Products here".
(#3)Section with information for "Dog Owners" including link or banner to respective page.
(#4)"Contact Animal Control" section with banner or link to respective page.
(#5)Link(Banner) to www.BarkEnder.org.
(#6)Link(Banner) to www.GotBarking.com.
(#7)Link(Banner) to "Post a Video" page. Add "Coming Soon".
(#8)Link(Banner) to "Testimonial" page. Add "Coming Soon".
(#9)Link(Banner) to "About Us" page.
This is most of the information with a final draft to be submitted by me with all of the information to be included for all 3 homepage redesigns.
I am looking for professional design that presents the information in a pleasing and user friendly manner.
Visit the our sites to get an idea of this project. Please include examples of your work. I am open to suggestions, so please include links to any examples of web site designs that you recommend for these sites.
Thank you for your time in advance.
