This is the 2nd time I'm running this contest. The1st time was for 2 pages & I didn't receive enough submissions for the 2nd page so I ended the contest. This time this contest is only for the homepage. I will run an additional contest for the "itinerary" page once this one is complete.
HOMEPAGE - Should be beautiful and simple, with gorgeous photos. The attached wireframe isn't engraved in stone. I'm happy to entertain other ideas, (one idea is having the entire page be thumbnail sized pics).
Here are a few HP elements I haven't flushed out on the wireframe.
The wireframe is what it would look like if you're not logged in. If you're logged in a few more elements pop up.
- Login button: would probably be the "profile page" button once logged in. When a user hovers over the login button it populates into his profile page, saved itineraries, dashboard, nook it bookmark, etc.
- Add a company button: Only accessible when logged in. This is the button that allows users to upload a restaurant, excursion, hotel (to include AirBnB type listings), etc. Similar to how you would upload a company to Yelp.
- Photos on the homepage will all be clickable. These are mostly all user generated as well and dynamic. When a user clicks on a photo it will take you to the details of that photo, i.e. exact location, how to get there and booking options if applicable. This is the other part of the site I haven't elaborated on yet. IF a user simply hovers over the pic for an extended amount of time (say 2 seconds), but doesn't click, the image will illuminate bigger and turn while doing so (similar to the Shazam app's "Pulse" section).
