As his other job was in the metal and steel industry, I took that as my inspiration and created a clean light theme accented with blue, gold and steel colored brushed metal images.
The homepage slider I used for this is a parallax jQuery slider script that allows you to have text and images move into the frame and move in dynamic ways. Instead of everything being on one image, the final image is built by the timing and directing of numerous layers of text and other images. I especially liked the look of the initial slider image. The two halves of the world map spring in from opposite sides and with an “elastic” motion come to settle in the final position.
