How seahorsemedia started their web page design journey

Summary

This is a total redesign of an existing website called Ultimate Travel Magazine (http://www.ultimatetravelmagazine.com). As you’ll see we’ve developed a good content base, but it really needs to be spruced up and updated and we’re aiming for a whole new look and design to give it the “wow” factor it’s currently lacking, with a design that’s sophisticated, elegant, evokes luxury, and is ultimately engaging.

Company name

Ultimate Travel Magazine

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

What we need:
We need four components of our site to be designed in Photoshop - no coding necessary. Our original high res images can be downloaded as a 72 MB pdf from http://www.seahorsemedia.com.au/photography.html . The link is near the bottom of the page. Other generic non-copyright photos are fine as well, if needed.
1. The home page - which will obviously set the tone for the other three bits. Our “latest features” will form the basis of the content on the home page with thumbnails  of 100px X 75.
2. Section/Department page - this will list all the feature articles in a particluar section.
3. Feature Article Page - we'll need a headline and body copy. There will be one lead-in or main photograph, 350px X 240px, placed right at the top of the article, with a two-thirds length caption with a link to a photo gallery (as outlined below).
Somewhere on this page it would be great to have a “Fact File” box where we can put our information: “Getting There”, “Where To Stay”, “Tours”, and “More Information”. It would be good to have some icons for these items as well. This info will contain links to external sites.
4. Slideshow Photo Gallery - about 12 high res images  
What the website is about:
Ultimate Travel is a combination of real travel experiences, high quality photography, topical information and practical advice which needs to be presented in an eye-catching, contemporary format which is easy to use, with links to relevant sources of information to help the reader research an experience or destination.
Our Target Audience:
Our subscribers and readers are typically between the ages of 30 and 60 who range from middle income earners who are looking for one special trip each year, to high wealth individuals who travel several times a year, and often on business trips.
