Tell me, what are your key website goals?
- The design should be clean and on-brand
- There should be some "sizzle", but not too much
- We want beautiful photography and a bit of animation
- We should show up #1 for our keywords on Google
Can you have it all?

Certainly Google "walks the walk" - just look at the Google homepage, which has one of the quickest page loading times on the web. But, of course, the Google homepage is incredibly sparse. Can your site really be that sparse?
