How cruisedirect started their web page design journey

Company name

cruisedirector.com

Overview

We are a travel company that is launching a meta-search site, à la kayak.com, however our focus is solely on cruises.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Cruisers of all ages and genders.

Requirements

We already have the main templates for the site, but we want to completely re-skin everything and to make the pages wider. We don't need you to move things around on the page. We just need you to punch things up a bit.

One thing we are really interested in doing is incorporating social media "share" buttons and other elements that will help us promote our deals more (like a place to advertise our newsletter, or contests, giveaways, etc.) That's one of the reasons why we're expanding the site width.

DO NOT design around our logo. We will most likely be changing it.

Please feel free to be creative. Don't feel locked in by the color scheme that we have on the site right now. We're open to new suggestions for that. As long as what you design is fun, simple, and modern looking, it's all good.

The kind of design work that we're looking for is clean, crisp, yet whimsical (with a relaxed attitude that will appeal to travelers). Think Apple-esque, but with a little more color.

Number of pages

2

Page descriptions

There are two main pages that we need, homepage & results page (see powerpoint for details)

You will note in the powerpoint that it says "Wider Format" on some of the slides. We want to expand the current width of our site to something close to 940 pixels. Please keep this in mind while you're designing.

You'll also notice that on the slide which depicts the results page, there are pictures in the results, unlike what is currently on our site. We want our new format to have those pictures, so please design with them in mind.

Other elements that we will need designed later on down the road after we've gotten the main 2 pages set (also in the PPT):
-a couple of different pricing grids
-a price graph
-a modify search popover
-a login/sign up popover
-profile popover
-an interstitial
-graphical treatment for headers/footers/buttons in the shopping cart

Existing website

cruisedirector.com

Example websites

The very last slide in the power point is a VERY ROUGH mockup that includes some elements of other sites that we like. The elements came from:

groupon.com
mailchimp.com
zagg.com
