You'll find graphic examples we like in the 'Website Storyboard' file.
Every page will keep the same header and navigation layout.
There are four page layouts required (see attached 'Website Storyboard' PDF):
2) Category page
3) Ride page
4) Content page
Homepage - This will be used as the virtual traffic cop to direct people to where they want to go. The first headline and paragraph will be written to briefly explain what Big Surf is. The seasonal area will be changed based on any current promotions. The Facebook feed will be what Facebook provides in the current site (http://www.bigsurfwaterpark.com). The three boxes at the bottom should be teasers of each subject. They should have representory images.
Category page - This is a page that should be similar to http://www.bigsurfwaterpark.com/groups.cfm. The Headline 2 will be the title of the page and the paragraph below will briefly explain the page. This explanation will need to be accompanied by an image. Each of the boxes below will also include brief explanation and will direct people to the appropriate page using the content page layout.
Ride page - Based somewhat off http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/ this page will host the information for each of the rides/attractions at the park see list of attractions in storyboard). The list of attractions should be along the top of the primary content area. Each tab should represent an attraction. The area below that will incorporate a picture of the attraction as the background and include a picture/video box that is controlled by the thumbnails below. Below the images, is the attraction information. Below that are three boxes that include information about attraction restrictions, any required equipment e.g. life jackets or tubes, and general stats about the attraction e.g. 375-thousand gallons of water... See http://www.bigsurfwaterpark.com/Wave-Pool.cfm for example of the three boxes.
Content page - This page is for everything else. It needs to be a two-column layout.
Please use the storyboard as your guide and art-board. It was designed based on the needs of our visitors and our business goals. You're the expert in giving it visual life. We are looking to add depth and fun-ness to the layout. Typography is also fair-game as you see fit.
While creating this design, please keep in mind the site needs to load as fas as possible.
If a persona, or multiple personas, is helpful please let me know and I will provide one privately.
