Two important aspects of the project are making certain that we have a website that is built in a search engine friendly fashion and that it is fast loading (ideally each page to load under 5 seconds).
Below are a few different sites that we like the look and feel of to get an idea of what visually is appealing to us:
* [url removed, login to view] (we like the exciting transparent header and design)
* [url removed, login to view] (we like the rotating 3D cuber and that the header stretches across the entire screen)
* [url removed, login to view] (we like the font style, size and color) we would like to see the page laid out in a few different font choices to determine which one we like the best
* [url removed, login to view] (we like the interesting background layout.)
We would like the website to be built in a search engine friendly fashion which includes search engine friendly URL web addresses, the implementation of page title, description, keywords, H1 tags, image alt tags and sitemap that can be picked up on by Google, Yahoo & Bing. In the code hierarchy we would like the main content block to be placed before the sidebar regardless of the sidebar position, so it is crawled first by search engines (this is currently how the Qualifire template was already designed).
It will also be important that the site be built with WordPress security concerns be addressed during the design of the site. A great article can be read here that talks about some great ways to make a WordPress site more secure:

Please install both Google Analytics and Google Webmaster tools onto each of the pages of the site using the Google log in information we will provide.
We would like the site to be designed on the 960 grid system such as the Qualifier template is designed in.
On our logo we would like a look similar to the flash element used on [url removed, login to view] We would like our logo to be located in the upper left hand side on all of the pages of the site.
Navigation Menu - We like the style of [url removed, login to view] (the look not the colors) & also the navigation style on the Qualifire template we sent you.
