Occasionally, I have projects that need layouts or logos. I am a developer who knows the programming, but needs the help of a professional designer.
For this project, I need to redesign the homepage of this website [url removed, login to view]
I am open to any ideas that will drive traffic to the site and convert visitors into paying clients. The site needs a look & feel that will attract clients looking for upscale accommodations -- an upscale ClubMed style might be one approach.
For this project, I am only looking for a redesigned homepage and one secondary page. If this first project goes well, we can discuss a second project to implement the design site-wide.
A couple technical considerations:
* the site must be SEO & Google friendly
* the site files must be easy to update/edit
* cross-browser compatible
* standards compliant and pages must validate
* CMS features are unimportant, but I could be convinced otherwise
I am more interested in your design and portfolio, than price and speed.
In your proposal, please include:
* previous samples of work
* indicate how many mock-ups are included in your bid
* indicate whether you provide any free mock-ups before we start
* if so inclined, tell me some about what technologies you'd use, your approach, and what you'd improve
