How Lynette Turner started their web page design journey

Summary

Calling all Designers. Maat Professional Services is launching another contest and we want you! We are in need of a website home page and one sub-page design for the Element Hotel Suites brand.
Your mission if you so choose: to think like an end user looking to book a room at the Element Hotel Suites. You’re on the site – what do you need it to look like? What sort of “cool” things do you want to see on the site? What would make you say “cool site – looks like an awesome place to stay”. And, I wonder who designed their site because it’s AWESOME?? ;-)

Company name

Element Hotel Suites

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Element Hotel Suites is the first in a series of small boutique suites available for long and short term stays. The Element Hotel Suites offers trendy open-concept studio suites.

This is Phase 1 of the site since we have a Nov 30 target launch date. So, we need to site to be easy to develop.

Out of the starting gate:

You can get the logo at: http://sites.google.com/site/maatpr…ervices/We need a PSD file with all layers of the design available

These are sites we like:
http://www.thedrakehotel.ca/
http://www.starwoodhotels.com/whotels/index.html
http://www.theritzlondon.com/
http://www.apple.com : We like how they used icons above the links
http://enhancedlabs.com/: we like the (do I dare to say it…) Web 2.0 look – the clean bold lines and how the colors move from grey to orange to white
