MyPartyLink.com is U.S. based service website for the party and event planning industry. Members will be able to advertise their services, and visitors will be able to find what they’re looking for whether it’s a performer or a caterer, for their event. A member may be an individual professional, a group of professionals, or a business.
The different sections we need designed are:
The home page lists Featured Professionals (with Photo), with a link to their respective Profile Page.
There should be a field to search by keyword and a field to search by location.
The home page also should incorporate a prominent 'About' or 'News' section, as well as advertising banners.
Listings (http://staging.mypartylink.com/home/Entertainment-Or-Talent/Magic-and-Hypnosis/Intimacy-Level/All or http://staging.mypartylink.com/home…-Type/All)
Clicking on the service categories will get the user to a page listing all available service providers.
Profiles (http://staging.mypartylink.com/home/Equipment/Type/Jump-House--Or--Bounce-House/Kids-%26-Co-2E/details or http://staging.mypartylink.com/home…h/details)
The Profile page for each provider should include
- 'Book Now | Rate | Recommend' Buttons
- Contact Info
- Short Bio
- Website Links
- a Photo Gallery and a Video Gallery (if available).
We imagine the photo and video galleries could be accessed by a tab, but are open to any suggestions which will keep the profile page clean, simple, and intuitive.
One of the challenges the site faces is the number of categories, sub-categories, sub-sub-categories... "Entertainment -> Music -> Performer Division -> Solo Musician -> Guitar". We are looking for an ideal way to intuitively present these choices to the user.
Here is a link to a previous design attempt, which we find highly unattractive: http://www.phpweb3.net/. It might help though to better understand the purpose of the site.
We will do all of the coding ourselves and will need the original PSD files including all layers and fonts used.
