Step 5 - DESIGN

Do you have any specific design styles, colors or fonts in mind for your website?


Do you require Flash or any other animation? Please be specific as to the nature and purpose of the animation.


This is very important: please give us some URLs of sites that you like or want to model your site after. You can point out specific parts or aspects of the sites if you don't like the whole thing.
