Design brief

Brief Summary

We are the largest job site in the Middle East. We got our start 8 years ago when the internet wasn’t much more than an idea around here. Based in Dubai, we now have offices around the Middle East and North Africa. In terms of technology, we have a great “back-end,” but our front-end needs a serious facelift – and that’s where you can help.

Brand Name

http://www.bayt.com

Description

We have done a lot of thinking and benchmarking internally, and our staff has come up with a preliminary design. What we really want is a fresh perspective from people disconnected from our day-to-day operations and thinking. We are firm believers in the power of tapping distributed knowledge – so that’s where you come in.

We are like most companies in search of design ideas: we know what we think we want and we know what elements we must include, but we are always open to ideas that we haven’t already considered.

Who we are: we are an 8 year old start-up. We like to call ourselves a perpetual start-up since it keeps us on our toes. We are entering a new phase of explicit innovation and this make-over is a key part of that. The average age of our 250+ staff is under 30. We are young, dynamic, intensely multi-cultural and forward-thinking.

Essentially, what we want is a killer design that is usable, unified, useful and forward-thinking. Arrangement, layout, design…these are up to you.

Keep in mind that we are trilingual in English, Arabic and French. Submit English-only designs and we’ll do the translation, but any images and content should be sensitive/mindful of this region – so no bikini-clad jobseekers please. In fact, we prefer no faces at all.

Important point: this is a high-traffic site so it needs to be light and agile, so no big images and flash.

Wants
