Northpointe Veterinary Hospital is a full service pet hospital providing complete medical and surgical care for cats and dogs. We are looking for a home page that is clean and professional, and gets across the image of competent, high tech medical care, but with a caring and compassionate feel. I am thinking of using a tag line with the new logo along the lines of "High Tech with a Soft Touch." At any rate, I want to stay away from cute, cartoonish or clipart style illustrations in this project, and set a high-quality, serious professional tone.
The winning logo design for this page can be seen at: http://99designs.com/contests/21201 While I want to keep the icon, its color can be changed, and the font and color and layouot of the text ("Northpointe Veterinary Hospital) can be changed if the designer prefers.
There is no particular color scheme required for this project.
On the Home Page we should have navigation buttons in one form or another for: Home, Meet Our Staff, Virtual Hospital Tour,Hospital Policies, Boarding, Prescription Refills, Photo Gallery and Contact Us.
On my current website, I have some text - about a paragraph or so - on the homepage which introduces the hospital. I am thinking that I should probably keep this or something similar on the new homepage, but I could be persuaded not to if your design does not accomadate the space. The current website is http://npvethospital.com. My current site, like most veterinary websites, is built on a template that looks clunky and "boxy." This is not the appearance I want with your new design.
