Looking for a clean, simple web 2.0 look and feel. Would like to see use of colors that complement our logo and lots of white/open space so the site is very easy to grok and doesn’t feel cluttered.
Wiireframe is available here:
Wireframe is meant to be very rough – for overall content/layout guidance only. All colors, typeface/font, etc., are fair game.
Logo is here:
Logo colors should not be altered/changed.
Rapid feedback will be provided. Had a great experience with previous contests.
Design should very clean, simple, web 2.0 style, but still trustworthy and authoritative (i.e. not too juvenile, hokey, cheesy or flashy).
Page has 3 main sections:
-Search and Compare
-Browse All Hotels
Site must be VERY easy to look at / read / absorb info, and clear what each section means, etc.
** Please think hard about ways to use icons, images, etc. for division of space, sections, etc., to create more visual impact and to make the data on the page VERY easy to comprehend. **
Stylistically, these are some look and feel we like – fun and lighthearted web 2.0, but still trustworthy and authoritative:
