classictravel got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Luxury Travel Responsive Website Redesign
Check out classictravel's Web page design contest…
Travel & Hotel
Classic Travel Services is a luxury travel agency based in New York City. Through our website we provide a curated list of the most exclusive hotels in the world that customers can book online. We also offer added amenities at most hotels either through our Virtuoso affiliation or through specially negotiated Classic Travel rates. Our audience is affluent and care about luxury travel and service over price.
We need a new fully-responsive site as our current site is 6 or so years old and not mobile-friendly. We want to have a white background that should be clean, crisp and visually appealing. We plan to use large hotel image sliders that are full width, but would scale for mobile devices. Hotel search is key to what we do and should be featured prominently. We have started to prepare a design brief that will be provided.
Further information will be provided as needed. Obviously the home page is the BIG first step in this process. We created a wireframe and a design document for this (see the "Notes" section below). DO NOT feel bound by our design doc! We're not designers, so we're relying on your guidance and personal style. We also do not want to look identical to our competitors! Usability is key, as is mobile. Booking a hotel is what we want every visitor to the site to do! (1) Home page: please refer to our design spec for more details (2) Hotel Search: We like the layout of the page at Virtuoso.com that was linked previously. (3) Individual hotel page: We like the layout of the Mr & Mrs Smith hotel landing pages (see link above) (4) Specialty Travel: you can see this on our current site at http://www.classictravel.com/Specialty - we need a complete redesign here. (5) Guides: City guides that will need to be redone. You can see the current ones at http://www.classictravel.com/Browse/
What to avoid
We have a home page wireframe at: https://classictravel.mybalsamiq.com/projects/siteredesign/Home%20Page We have started a design document available at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tBLDEcdqqeWO_Iq0D1UBq0ybwOxEjWDUf9P2oiQ27ik/edit?usp=sharing We will be continuing to work on these documents as the contest progresses, but we hope they provide enough information to get a good start on the home page design!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Web page design starts at $599.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their web page design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
classictravel collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
