For my Vector-based redesign, I did two different options – one traditional and the other more modern.
First the Traditional one:
The Home page, showcasing a prominent photograph (I found this photo on the web as the original site is written in Flash, preventing me from using their assets in my redesign. Of course, a photograph from the studio would be in place here.)
The Logo, Header and Navigation are all in one across the top.
Contact page, using the same interface, but substituting a map and contact form for the photograph.
In both cases, a very pale version of the logo image is just visible in the background, to give a little texture to the pages.
… and for the Modern interface:
The Home page is simple and sleek, with lots of white space around the assets.
I chose to place the navigation vertically on the right, which may present problems in Dreamweaver, but I wanted elipses to reflect the camera lens in the logo and I’m an artist, so there you go…
For the Contact page, I again used a map and contact form, keeping with the sleek, white look.
