Due Dec 7th - Escort Agency Website $800

(Admin code added by Palmer - 85066467WL481112A)

I am currently contracted to provide a website to an escort agency.

I am looking for design/css/html of the following pages

Home Page
Interior Page (Results Page)
Interior Page (Form)
Interior Page (Blank)

The website should be very classy, not cheap at all, finally provided in full css/html/graphics.

At no stage will you be required to work with photos of actual escorts. You may use some stock photography from istockphoto which we'll pay for.

For the template I would like a shiny black background with slight gradient to give a sheen effect. The company logo colours of magenta / white on black need to be maintained. The logo can be seen at http://www.lucybrookes.co.uk

I very much like the website http://www.mrandmrssmith.com - Please use this to get an idea of the kind of design I need although it is not an escort site.

Home Page
----------
This page will serve as an introduction to the agency and as a gallery for the initial 6 escorts. Each item in the gallery should have the photo, a 'more info' icon and a 'Make a booking' icon under each photo....

The top of the page should have a nice graphical flowing navigation connected to nicely blended stock photo...

Our phone number (tbc) will also need to have a prominent spot on the page.

Also at the top of the page will need to be a username / password login...

Across the bottom of the page needs to be a table of links with the following in it...

o Home
o Our Escorts
o Payment
o Make a booking
o Join our agency
o Contact us
o Privacy Policy
o Terms & Conditions
o Links

A good look at our competitors sites will give a good idea of the elements that need to go on the page.

Interior Page
------------
• This page will be the page the user reaches when they click on an escort or the more info button and will contain the following elements
o 9 photos in matrix with large selected photo above
o Profile next to the photo matrix with the following fields (This needs to be presented in a well structured table in line with the results page)
 Name
 Age
 Nationality
 Height
 Dress Size
 Bust
 Hair
 Eyes
 Orientation
 Languages
 Credit cards accepted
 Incall – Yes / No
 Outcall – Yes / No
 Rates
• 1 hour
• 1.5 hours
• 2 hours
• Additional hours
• Dinner date
• 12 hours
• 24 hours

Interior Page – Join our agency
• Nicely formatted form with introductory text above. Form needs to have the following fields
o Name:
o Escort Name:
o Phone No:
o Email Address:
o City:
o Country:
o
o Age:
o Nationality:
o Hair Colour:
o Eye Colour:
o Height:
o Dress Size:
o Bust Size:
o Do you have a website:
o Can you accept Incall's?
o
o Please describe yourself (text area)
o
o Upload a photo (Browse) - Upload button.

Interior Page blank

Our competitors sites are at:

http://www.bondandmayfair.com/home.asp
http://www.kellystreasures.co.uk/yor...s-escorts.html
www.mckenziesescorts.com/
http://www.platinumselect.com/
http://www.leeds-city-escorts.co.uk/city-escorts.php
http://www.intimate-escorts.co.uk/female_north.htm
http://www.idealescorts.co.uk/ukescorts/index.jsp

Many thanks

Jamie

Hi George,

Yeah I like it and its a great start.

The icons with the links under each photo are not quite right, we need to do something with them to make them more...i don't know...work better or something..they're just a bit weak...

The font for the heading 'Welcome to,...' and Call us, Members, etc still not quite right but not far off...

Also the font used for the paragraph and the links at the bottom isn't quiet right but apart from that its looking good...love the shiny black!

Hi George,

Sorry completely slipped my mind.

We need to make the design slightly narrower than 1024 to allow for scroll bars and stuff.

Cheers

Jamie.

Hi Vhq,

I like the design. Can you have a look at the font used on the tabs and make the tabs perhaps a little more glassy effect - looks a bit like a dull gradient...

On the logo at the top or that general area, I like the picture but feel it needs to blend in some how maybe with layers on and over it or something...

Again the font on welcome to Lucy Brookes isn't working because its a scripty font so it kind of dilutes the logo.

I really like the flowery background. Can you try it where the flowers are a bit bigger. The same design, but zoomed in a bit?

Many thanks

Jamie.

Hi Sev,

Yeah thanks. You can see by the discussions and comments the sort of thing I'm after and the bits I like and would like different.

Thanks

You've really got what i wanted with the flowery background here. I'm not keen on the oval shape around the logo but I'm sure something could be done with that easily...maybe a slightly smaller logo...

The client login label at the top could be a bit smaller but i like the font

Phone number is great

The biggest thing we need to look at is this...the design itself seems a little texty so I was thinking is there anyway we can make the text area half as wide and get a couple of the girls images up next to it...?

That would also take care of the 6 featured girls we will be putting on the front page.

Might be a plan to just replace the phone number with a rubbish one for now - I think that is one of our competitors? lol

Only other comment is where the navigation is to make it a bit glassier over the gradient somehow.

This is a very classy design and with a bit of development will look stunning.

Thanks
Jamie.

Hello Jamie,

I'll work up some other ideas for representing the logo.

I added more text due to your mention of SEO, content is key.

I'll whip up something different to the side.

It's similar but I actually changed most of the numbers

I'll get on the changes.


Thank you.

Warm regards,

Sev (:

Maybe we can make the text a bit smaller or the spacing smaller or something. We do need SEO but I can handle that pretty well. With the logo if you made it smaller and blended it against the top of table background that might work somehow - I have the logo in ai and psd if needed

J &c.

Hi,

Yes I prefer the logo much more like this.

Can you have a look at the other points I made. I think we're getting somewhere.

Thanks

Jamie.

Hi Sev,

Looking good.

Need the 'View my profile' and 'Make a booking' icons / button under each girl.

Client has looked. Also asked if we can make a new box next to login - same but that says 'Register'

Cheers

Jamie.

Hi
here is revised design. The flowery background is a raster image and if I zoom it it will look blurred.

Many thanks to everyone who made an effort. I'll be posting 2 more projects in the next 5 days.
