Fontes.gerards got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Rural Villas needs a new website design
Check out Fontes.gerards's Web page design contest…
Travel & Hotel
We use our website to advertise a series of villas we sell across the island of Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands. The villas are all high-end, well decorated villas with a distinct rustic/rural style, yet include modern amenities. Our target audience are middle/upper class tourists in Europe (primarily Spain, England, and Germany) who want to take a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle that traditional sun and beach vacations provide.
The design should be simple and elegant, and help focus the attention to the pictures of the villas. Wherever possible, please use the images that we have on the current site to help us get a feel of how they would look on your design. In terms of color, we'd like to go with either a dark background (black or darker brown), or a clear background (white/off white) - the main idea is still to focus attention on the pictures, so please base your color selection on that.
Landing page: Landing page that the user sees when arriving at the site. Should include a large image at the center (slideshow) and some basic information on the islands below, as well as a feed on the latest blog posts (see http://themeforest.net/item/salutation-wordpress-buddypress-theme/full_screen_preview/548199 for inspiration - nav bar should stand out more). Navigation bar at the top of the site to showcase the various pages within (Home, Our Villas, Lanzarote, Blog). The nav bar should be thin and unobtrusive - during implementation we want the nav bar to be able to move with the user - so it has to be thin! Villas page: This page will have to feature 3 main sections: images (front and center), description (below the images), and the booking calendar (on either side of the picture/description). The best example of the layout we are looking for would be either Jetsetter.com or AirBnB.com. The description section needs to include some tabs as in the jetsetter site for Description, Attractions, and Map. Note: We have 15 unique villas, so the name of the villa has to be prominent within the page. We are working on being more "social" so please find creative ways to include the Facebook and Twitter like buttons in the design of the Villa pages
What to avoid
Bright colors and too modern of a design. Please think about the sense of quality and exclusivity we are trying to convey for our villas and design accordingly.
Please try to keep the design clean and simple - we're not going for a fancy look, but rather simple and elegant!
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.
Fontes.gerards collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
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.
