Thank you for the interest in our project. It's different from most.
We do not need a complete website redesign. Instead, we're looking for a designer who can take a pre-existing website template and dream up the least amount of modification which can create the maximum visual impact.
Changes need to improve the plain, vanilla template design so that it better reflects the naturalistic, artisanal nature of the client company, incorporating stylized accents and applying a pre-determined color palette (see attached).
Texas Tropical, an independent exotic plant nursery, wants to engage with American gardeners interested in education on exotic plants and purchasing quality products. The small business has established a brand identity and including a logo (see attached). An off-the-shelf template was selected for use with Magento shopping cart and now needs customization to the look-and-feel to better communicate the values and tone of the company, prior to execution of national online marketing plan.
