The StayToday website will have two sections: ShortStays and FeaturedStays. We need a design for the home page and another design for a ShortStay area-listing page. Wireframes for these two pages have been done and are attached. The contest winner will get the privilege of completing the rest of the site’s designs at an agreed-upon rate.
A. Home Page
. This page should be a very simplistic, clean-cut, uncluttered beautiful page.
. There should be no sidebar(s) and limited top & bottom links.
. The home page will show a map of Namibia only once the user clicks on MAP. This effect can be seen in the wireframe labeled Homepage-Map.png. Please use the attached map and create a VERY basic, slick, region-outlined map that a user can select regions on. The idea is that the map will "slide out" after a user clicks on the Map button and that the screen then auto-scroll to the map area. After selecting regions the user should be able to click "DONE" and the map will slide back and the Destination field will be populated, leaving the home page as in its original state. (ALL OF THIS IS SHOWN IN THE WIREFRAMES). For the design please show the page as it would be shown with the map clicked (as on Homepage-Map.png).
. Visually appealing
. User to click on the either the FeaturedStay banner or use the ShortStay search Box.
. Communicate professionalism
B. ShortStays Area-Listings Page
. This page should display listings as big beautiful interesting boxes.
. Sort & Filtering options
. Sidebar & additional top & bottom links
. The listing boxes should be visually appealing and all the necessary information should be clearly displayed (see wireframes)
. Beautiful uncluttered listings
. Easy intuitive sorting and filtering of listings
. User to click on an establishment box and make a booking.
