Thanks for your reply. I have looked at you work on here and on your website and I think you may be able to help us.
I am not a great web designer, I dont know exactly the look i am looking for, but I will know when I see it, it is right.
The existing site is [url removed, login to view] (this link goes outside [url removed, login to view]) and the new design we have put together is. Since putting together the code for the new design, I had read lots of bad things about drop down menus. Also on the new design i have not been able to fit in the advertisments that are on the current live site.
We are looking for a professional looking, easy to use, tourism website which also considers the local aspect of the resort - that fits in all of the stuff I have put on the new design. I like the new design, but I seem to be the only one that does.
We have over 300 domains for different greek resorts, so the basic design must be scaleable in the fact some resorts are party young persons resorts, and some a quiet places to relax.
We are currently writing new code to allow people to register in a facebook style - they will create a profile here - [url removed, login to view] (this link goes outside [url removed, login to view]) (stalis is another site of ours) and upload pictures and create a business profile and ecommerce sites.
I dont want it to look like thomas cook, or olympic as this is more than a holiday sales website, it is an information center, and sales center for the resorts.
We have a requirement to redevelope our sites. Our sites can be found at [url removed, login to view], and I have started to look at the redsign of the sites and have come up with something like this - [url removed, login to view]
The important things we are looking for is thee whole look and feel to be CSS bases and pass the W3C vaidation checkers. We also require it to work without the compatibility button on IE 8. We need the site to work in all browers including IE, FF and CROME.
All of the graphics used in the site except the photos and weather icons must be new, as we have taken them from other sites.
We require the footer to stick to the bottom of the page regardless of the size of the page. if the page is small we still want the page to stick to the bottom of the screen. We also require a FAT footer style footer to get all of the informaiton in there we need.
The CSS drop down is taken from another site, we can keep the coe but this the drop down to function differently. We are happy with 7 or 8 top level menus, but it must completly fill the width of the page. If you hover over services at the moment, you will see it does not fit the whole screen. The currentl drop down CSS does not allow for different font sizes in the top menu and the drop boxes. We need the drop to have slightly smaller font than the main menu.
We need the layout to be more clean and chrip than it currently is, but to accommodate all of the informaiton at the moment. We need the new front page to be in medretraian style summer holiday, but not be to over the top, just look like a professional holiday company
If you would like this job we must be able to see examples of your graphic work, and css work.
