Amazing designer. Great skills and super easy to work with. After he won our contest we created a new 1:1 job to build more inner pages. Now we have about 10 pages designed in total from him and we are very happy. Thanks a lot for the great work.

How christopher.g.freeman started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We offer an Escape Room experience. Teams of 2-6 people are locked into a room and have 1 hour to solve the various puzzles and clues to escape.
Our target audience is tourists looking for an activity to solve, and also local people looking for something novel. Couples of all ages, late teens and 20-somethings. We are not marketing it for children or young teenagers.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Games & Recreational
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Professional, we want it to be slick, a bit mysterious. It's a timed escape so theme could include clocks, locks, keys, doors, codes. We don't want to lock too much into a specific era, as we may have rooms of different themes. Having said that it's okay to have archetypal imagery which could include old fashioned clocks and keys that look cool.
A modern style.
Simple, easy to navigate
Iconography should be simple with clean lines
Home page - menu at the top with Home, Book Now, The Escape Rooms, About Us, Bookings, Opening Hours, FAQs, Contact us
The front Page is a scroller with sections including The Escape Rooms, About us, Opening Hours, and FAQs on front page. The Escape Room sections will need enough text for an enticing blurb of 1 paragraph about the room, and a book now button.
The FAQ while on the front page would be at the bottom so you can scroll to the bottom to read them but they may be the longest section.
Page 2 would be Bookings. This would have to utilise Bookeo: http://www.bookeo.com/
Bookeo is a third party app that is simply embedded into the web page. Bookeo allows some control over the colours but not too much over style. An example of Bookeo in use is here. http://www.rushescapegame.com.au/bookings/ As you can see it supports responsive design.
The third page would be a contact us. This would include a map. The reason we wanted this on it's own page is we don't want any form entry functionality on the landing page as it would interfere with the front page design. The bookings page and contact us are a bit more functional/practical so they can afford to sacrifice style for functionality.
What to avoid
With this mysterious theme there might be a tempation to go dark and gothic like https://www.traptmelbourne.com.au/ We don't want the dark/gargoyle look.
However we would hope the mysterious could be a bit "lighter" eg a bit more mysterious/curious rather than mysterious/scary.
We have a logo already, so we want that incorporated in.
The 3d one with the key primarily, but depending on the design you come up with, the 2d black and white flattened out logo may work better or as well as. I've attached both. The 2D one has AI, EPS and PNG formats
