A website design starts with planning

so please take the time to answer all of these questions in as much detail as possible.

Examples don’t have to be specific to your industry … as long as the examples convey a look and feel that you like, it will suffice. Also, the more detail the better. For example, “on site A we like the layout but don’t like the colors, on Site B we like the the overall look but we don’t like the layout” … at minimum if you could provide 1 thing you like and 1 thing you dislike about the samples, that would be great.
More would be even better.
