After having failed receiving an even mediocre design on getafreelancer.com and rentacoder.com and having now discovered 99designs, I am sure to find a suiting design as I can see the actual skills at work.
I do not have any specific design requirements apart from the design having to incorporate the following content on the home page:
- header with navigation (best hotels, popular hotels, new hotels, special offers, contact, forum, maps, destination guides)
- footer with navigation (contact, customer service, about, privacy, disclaimer, sitemap, ressources/partners, links to different hotel chains -> see fivestaralliance)
- main categories with sub-categories
- top destinations
- newest additions
- tag cloud
You can earn an additional bonus of 57 USD each for creating templates for the destination site (info about the area, hotel listings, temperature in this area, lates news and latest forum posts) and the property site (featuring description, pictures, amenities, room types with rack rates, map with location, download link of fact sheet and reviews, have a look here for a rough guideline: http://www.vlmuae.com/hotel/39249).
If you deliver the templates ready for phpld rather then just the the design I am willing to throw in a further bonus of 114 USD, taking the maximum award in this contest to 485 USD!
To give you a general idea of sites I like have a look at bnet.com, tablethotels.com, webhostlist.de, holidays.easyjet.com, iht.com/travel, extravigator.com, fivestaralliance.com, starwoodpro.com, travelintelligence.com and mytravelguide.com.
Tablethotels is coming very close to the ideal I am looking for, offering a striking navigation, lot's of information without seeming cluttered. The layout should have one large picture describing one hotel spanning over two columns and maybe 5 - 7 smaller thumbshots leading to other hotel descriptions.
