OMG99 is an absolutely excellent team to work with. Will do so again in the future.
Tiffany did great work for us. Her designs were inspired and she was very responsive to feedback. We're exceedingly pleased with the results!
How Jimmyzig2003 started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Flight of the Gibbon
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The website treetopasia.com (re-direct -flightofthegibbon.com) is primarily geared to introduce potential customers to the highest rated eco-adventure zipline canopy tour in Southeast Asia, and one of the top 10 in the world. But equally important is CONVERTING those visitors to bookings. Our primary target is 20-35 year old. It is an International audience of active people who love adventure/outdoor activities. Both men and woman do it almost equally and children and seniors can also do it- It’s family friendly. The site serves a word-wide audience with visitors coming from just about everywhere except South America and Africa. Showing people having fun on an extreme thrilling adventure of a lifetime in a unique setting sets the tone
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We want it to be fresh, fun and exciting. It’s once in a lifetime experience that everyone will enjoy.The look and feel of the new webpage should be younger, modern and clean, but still have the element of the jungle/rainforest. It should also stand out and differentiate us from existing competitors’ website. Color usage should reflect the rainforest/jungle, eco-tourism, safety and reliability. A style sheet will be required from the winning designer.
We are primarily interested in the Banner re-design. It currently takes up too much real estate. We also are concerned about navigation. As you will see, the site serves 3 locations and visitors must be able to go to the right location easily. However, you will also see in the mobile version of the current site that sending visitors right do booking limits engagement and prohibits important selling messages.
All elements of the design must be responsive to mobile devices.
Gibbons (small apes) are a big part of the identity. We have pictures
The company is about safety first
Eco-education and conservation– the value of showing visitors the eco-system surrounding them.
The current components on the front page are as follows. Those with an * are not required and may/do rotate. None of the components except the logo must be represented and use of real estate may change.
• The logo and the tag line
• Room for announcement badges (like New Course in Angkor) in the banner
• Easy to choose from 3 locations
• Sub-navigation (see top of current site). Better usage is encouraged
• Room for main headline and visuals showing the fun and excitement of the tours
• The backdrop with the woman on the left and the gibbon on the right can change*
• Main selling points (bullets) and Book NOW button are important
• Social icons
• Customer reviews
• Gabbin with the Gibbon (blog) but not as much real estate
• Trip Advisor and other 'badges'
• As seen in (press reviews)
• Featured Trips near bottom.
• Link graphic to Segway Gibbon
• Language or country flag icons
• Search the site
• Map of locations
What to avoid
The design must be mobile responsive and designers should be aware of the importance of conversion of visitors to customers. The Home page is in many ways like a landing page -
We have a dropbox with many more photos and images that we will share with the finalists. For the opening round placeholders can be used for video/image areas. Some photos, what gibbons look like, and the logo are attached.
Please keep in mind, we are in TWO COUNTRIES: Thailand and Cambodia and in Cambodia we are in Angkor Wat Park
We are primarily interested in the Home page banner re-design. It currently takes up too much room. We also are concerned about navigation. As you will see, the site serves 3 locations and visitors must be able to go to the right location easily.
The website is tested frequently using mouse and click tracking programs to gauge conversions, so design elements will be tested and the winning designer may be asked make adjustments to the CSS based on our findings in the first 3 months after selection. Additional funds would be available for these changes.
