Customise a wordpress website which has been "Half-Baked"

I recently purchased the Avada template and had an internet based freelance WP guy help make my website. I think he was good at the WP stuff and what he did he did from a brief I sent him in Word.

I don't think design and layout were his strong points.

I have already used most of my budget with this fellow, and I feel like starting again locally when funds permit. But I am reaching out again to see if someone can knock this project back on it's wheels and salvage the efforts done by the first designer.

I am happy with most of the pages and content and most of the functionality that is currently there.

I just feel like the site is very plain and some of the layout does not flow.

We don't have to stick with AVADA if you have a better idea.

Pass: Hector2016

I don't like much of the design aspects. Including:

1. Use of colors

2. Font

3. Graphics

4. Layout

5. The sliders

6. I think the testimonial slider should have round images?

7. Forms

Worst Pages:

Home: This page is horrible. It does not need the big blue in the news section. This is the first thing you see!

Products: (NEW & USED) should not be woo commerce! It should instead be a much nicer showcase design of the products (machines). I get that all of the images should be the same dimensions (Products and Parts pages) I am working on this.

The information contained about the products need changing too, I have the correct specifications and an excel table with correct details (The information contained was just place holding )

Also on this page - Download brochure - Has wrong file - Make an enquiry button is a bit weird, probably don't need it

Customers page is dumb - might not need it's own heading?

Literature is pretty bad too.

Pages which are OK but might need small fixes are:


Contact - Images need to be all the same dimensions (I know I'm working on this)

& News

(Although I am open to your ideas though if you think these could be better)

I would like clean design, subtle. I am open to your thoughts and examples. I like many websites, here is one I visited recently which I liked...

The business is in the equipment manufacturing sector. Focus is Drilling, and Oil & Gas Exploration, Pipeline testing etc.

Our colours are Blue / CAT yellow / Red and Silver.

You could use the arrows and lines in my logo in a background or as a header mixed with a stock photo, washed out - The site just needs more design and even flow.

I had a designer make me some brochures which are better.

I am happy to buy relevant stock photos for you to use in sliders etc.

[login to view URL] (Although this is Portrait) I'm sure there are other good ones available.

I have some good vintage photos too.

I hope I have made sense with what I would like.
