About Your Company
gen2's Mission is to provide solutions that evolve. We are passionate about solving problems, and creating quality, affordable products for today's workspaces. Our main client is the furniture Dealer, the one who sells to the end-user. Although the end user of the furntiure also matters to us, we should focus on the Dealers.
We offer various product lines centered around Office Furniture. For 50 years, we have prided ourselves on offering quality products designed for flexibility, simple installation, and affordability.
Our complete product line includes workstations, desks,
benching, tables, floor to ceiling panel applications, storage and modern accessories. gen2 office furniture also offers more finish options (for color/texture of paint, furntiture, wood, etc.) than most providers.
We have always been committed to reducing waste by
increasing product life cycles and keeping it out of landfills with our buy-back programs. We also utilize environmentally friendly manufacturing processes using water based adhesives and powder coat paints. Our steel and aluminum components are all recyclable.

Measures of Success
Increase traffic, visibility, and usefulness. Right now we hide our website, we don't want to link to our gen2 site, and we want something that we are proud of. Something we get good feedback from. Something to re-enegrize our marketing.
Top 3 Things
Fresh & Modern, True Value & Quality, Great Service
The vision for the site is something that matches our new, upgraded branding guidelines & materials (see additional info below).
Looking for a light grey or white background, something minimal where colors stand out as accents or through images/media of our furniture (products). Would like to see something akin to a "line break" between sections on the page - see how Steelcase Office Furniture has a light, neutral color behind each white background section as you scroll.
The "g" in gen2 is always lower-case. We are looking for a new look as we've completely refreshed our brand. Please use the files attached to build the design. The company has provided brochures, logos, and more.
All of the following items are included and should be used: Branding Guidelines Document, Approved Color Scheme, Font, Logo, and Geometric Element used in Print Brochures. Site Map is also here - it includes the updated pages that will be on the new website.
Additional Print Brochures & Marketing is also available here.
Note that designs not using the branded elements (logo, color scheme) may not be considered.
