I'm building a project website and now we came to the question what to place on the home page (the landing page, the page you get when you click Home or the logo).
We've all kind of information (results, project description, links, photos) at the other menu items, but no inspiration for our Home page. The site will be rather static so no news items you see often at the Home page.
Anyone some good ideas? Or otherwise links to good examples?
Thanks in advance.
For inspiration, here's a nice set of examples at Six Revisions. The home page should tell the first-time visitor the one thing/few things your company/project is all about and lead them to the various ways they can interact.
The home page should include eye-catching graphics that make the users want to explore more, a short introduction, and you can add links/visuals to other pages/sections of your website - depending which sections you want to feature best. Depending on the type of website you are building, make sure the contact info is proeminent/available, a shopping cart button, featured products, make sure the features that places you ahead of your comeptition are visible, etc
