Thanks @robst we are definately going for personality and quality graphics to stack onto the idea.
We are actually coding the begins to the web app now and will soon be posting more information and graphics including a nice video on how to use and why you should use it :)
The grey is def. dull and should probably have a subtle texture applied to it to give more depth so that is something we will continue to explore. Hoping to have updates by the end of the weekend actually! Great comments I am def. not a web designer but I am passionate about learning anything and everything related to architecture and design.
