What we need most of all is a striking page which looks amazing, as it will represent the best of what we can deliver (including the best that 99 Designs can deliver, as you will be our designers in our business model!).
This web site http://menwithpens.ca/ sums up our expectation of style and sophistication with a wordpress blog! The graphic design is clean and different - highly original. There is great use of light and shade and plenty of white space in the areas that matter. I like the 3D effect how the page seems lifted.
Digital Domination should will be similar in format and layout with the header, then menu, then a slidedeck of some kind, then blogs on the left and widget bars on the right where the main content will be. You will need to come up with an original background image that flows well through the page, similar to the menwithpens web site.
Our logo represents our colour scheme which doesn't neccessarily have to be used throughout, but should be present to some extent. You have license to alter the logo if it will add to the effect of the site (similar to the pen going through the S). Our logo also represents links in a chain, which is apt for web linking or linking marketing strategies - so be creative with that if you like.
