We are mainly interested in optimizing several key pages to make the whole experience easier for a potential customer and also for our current members to reach the sections they want and then present them information in a clean and easy to read manner without any extra clutter.
We're great about giving feedback so if you start with rough mock-ups, we'll let you know if you're heading in the right direction. Also, please ask us any questions along the way - we're happy to help make sure this is a good experience for everyone.
There are approximately 4 or 5 primary pages - the initial landing page, become a member page, the search page, the actual search result page, and the form page. Off of those 4-5 pages, there are a couple of pages that are the same just a different header.
Please use the following file as rough guide as to the features/functions we are looking to have on each page and a very general idea for layout - However, we will leave it to your design sense how to best incorporate and illustrate the elements both in terms of design and spatially.

Lastly, we are going to use the same site, but with a hawaiian theme for a product designed specifically for Maui and the other islands called The Shaka Card - We will be posting a contest to skin this re-design with the hawaiian them and would strong preference to the winning designer of this contest to earn another $250 for that as well (total potential earnings $1000 - $750 from this contest plus $250 from that one).
