Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Travelzoo is an online travel deal publisher.
We publish Airfare deals, Hotel Deals, Vacation packages, cruise deals and Local and entertainment deals among other deal types. We publish most of our deals on our website and mobile devices but also send out our weekly Top 20 (top 20 travel deals) via email as well as Newsflash email alerts when there is a breaking news worthy travel deal.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking to have a Newsflash (or Breaking news) image designed, to be used when we send out a " Newsflash" email alert to our audience, to advertise airfare deals to multiple regions on multiple airlines.
We send images with our emails in when we are promoting a specific hotel, or airfare to a specific destination. But when we are promoting multiple airlines and multiple destinations in one email it becomes difficult to find a singular photo to represent it all. We need a graphic that is more generic and represents " breaking travel news" for this scenario.
I have attached 2 examples of the type of email we need the graphic for.
I labeled those: Graphic_Needed_For_This_Type_of_Email-Flash
I have Also attached 2 examples for deals where we have a specific Destination or property and we run an image. I have labeled those: Photos_Used_for_Specific_Deals
The space that were working with for images is 600 x 300, i am fairly certain the graphic would need to fall with in this as well.
What we are looking for in our design:
**Something similar to the " Breaking News " Graphic the BBC uses.
This is our inspiration. I attached the graphic the BBC uses the file is called: BBC-BreakingNews
Im not sure if we will want text saying " Breaking news"
If we did incorporate any text it should say " Newsflash or Travelzoo Newsflash" Please note Travelzoo is all one word and only a Capital T.
Simple and Graphic.
- Can be simple graphic illustration or photo realistic / photo illustration. Just nothing too " dream world" looking.
Travel related in some way.
- Could incorporate all or one of these (ideas): globe, map or airplane.
Branded colors – Possibly just red's to convey “ urgency”
- I have attached our Style Guide brand colors. File is called: tzoo_styleguide_colors.pdf
