emptyspaceads.com needs a new design for its homepage. It's a relatively simple site with limited content. We need something that's simple, clean and professional. We generally prefer a "white based" design (eg, apple's site has a lot of white and light colors).
EmptySpaceAds is creating a tool to help website owners monetize their empty space (margins) by serving ads. The ads only show up when the user clicks on an ad. We have a current design with content up at http://www.emptyspaceads.com, but we're looking for something better.
LOGO: We like the logo, but we don't feel bound to it. Do not feel that you have to design around the logo or the current colors. We are open to designs with different logos.
