Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Gobblers.com.sg is a brand new daily deal site similar to the Groupon model but focusing strongly on the best daily food deals. We will also offer entertainment and unique deals but food is the main focus.
Groupon is the most obvious but we do NOT want it to look similar. We only want to retain the technical functions of this site. The aesthetic must be totally unique.
Blackboardeats.com is something we like a lot, but would need our site to be more simple that theirs. But the quality of that design is great.
deal.com.sg is a our direct competitor and they have a great looking site. We really want to BEAT the looks of that website.
The Main page must be simple and intuitive. We are following the Groupon format technically so all the technical functions of Groupon must be present ie Buy Now, Timer tab, picture of the featured restaurant or food deal, description of the food deal.
The BIG CHALLENGE, what we need is to create a completely unique look and feel, whilst retaining the simple functionality of the Groupon site.
Key Differentiator for us is that we are exclusively food based.
Use of texture, color and creative but simple layout is most important.
We are also running right now a logo design project also here on 99designs so please feel free to participate in both. Obviously we will have to marry the logo with the website.
Competition in this segment is going to get fierce so we need to stand out visually whilst remaining simple and retaining the core group buy functionality.
