This image is very simple and safe to use for content based material. We viewed some material from Harvard Health to get a better idea of the content that would be on this project.

For the Saw Palmetto for Hair Loss, Regrowth & Reviews page on Phime.org’s website, this image was used because it has a more character like feel to ease the subjects content about hair loss. The 5 Best Supplements & Vitamins for Hair Growth page included: Biotin for hair growth, MSM for hair growth, Omega-3, and Saw Palmetto for hair loss. These homemade tips for hair growth can be found on the 7 Best Natural Hair Growth Remedies page. Other natural hair growth remedies may include hair masks and rinses, juicing, and scalp massages. As a segue, the hair loss & regrowth products and treatments on Phime.org also featured a top hair loss shampoo that required an images to be compressed and re-sized for a Woocommerce page. A shampoo for hair growth needs to be perfectly balanced for hair loss patients that are seeking a natural hair regrowth shampoo made up of organic vitamins, minerals and plant cells. Their Best Hair Loss, Growth & Thickening Shampoo page exhibits that these shampoo products have had promising results for thickening and regrowing hair. This shampoo is called Nizoral and contains a special ant-fungal ingredients that has been shown to increase the diameter of hair follicles and reduces overall hair loss.

Job Board Site Design

One of the biggest challenges for finding the right job board colors and graphics for Jobs – Jobs Hiring near Me – USA site was to analyze other major job boards. For example, Indeed.com uses a plain white background and a clean blue logo. The simplicity of the site allows job seekers to focus on the job listings instead of a site with a “busy” layout which distracts the job seeker from the job listings. The url for the job postings are generally a royal blue which is a similar concept to Google, which uses blue links in their search engine results. Therefore, the click-through rate will be much higher for job seekers since web users are used to clicking blue links. For the project site JobsHiring NearMe.com, we followed the same concept with a clean responsive logo showing “real-life” workers and a plain white background. For the JobsHiringNearMe.net link, we stuck with a blue hyperlink to encourage job seekers to click local job postings from surrounding employers. Overall, the job search engine design was a success by keeping the site clean and seamless. In addition, we also used a responsive image on a similar travel job search site. For jobs that require travel, such as flight attendants and cruise ship jobs, we wanted to have a traveling job image that shows a neutral view of travel on the homepage of TravelingJobsNow.com. The image fit perfectly on the main traveling jobs page at Jobs – Traveling Jobs – USA site. The trick for picking a good travel image for this job search site is finding a graphic that does not take away from the hypertext of the job listings. It is important the job content has the center of attention for job seeker user experience. Lastly, we added an image for another small project for LPNJobsOhio.net. This is just a basic clip art style graphic related to licensed practical nursing. For the LPN Jobs Ohio – (Licensed Practical Nurse Jobs Hiring) site, we wanted to keep the theme and style flat and simple but yet centered around a lpn/nursing job search site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rental Cars Near Me Site Design

The first graphic was used for the Las Vegas Rental Car – Rentalcarsnear.me page on the top destination project for RentalCarsnear.Me which is a car rentals near me resource. A clean stock image was needed to represent the infamous Las Vegas sign that has been used as a landmark for tourism.

The second graphic is another stock photo of the Miami skyline which is a great symbol for the city along with the beaches. The image was placed on the Miami Rental Car – Rentalcarsnear.me page that was a great fit to compliment the content which described the attributes of the southern tropical city.

The third image was again a stock image that exhibits the skyline of downtown Los Angeles. The image was used on the Los Angeles Rental Car – Rentalcarsnear.me page and was clean graphic which used the tall palm next to the skyline to show the landmarks of LA.

The last image is another stock image that show the skyline of Orlando. Although we could have used a graphic to display one of the major theme parks in Orlando, we wanted to gear the image toward the architecture of downtown Orlando. This image was placed on the Orlando Rental Car – Rentalcarsnear.me page and was a good choice to show some the large buildings that can be found in the metro part of the city.

One of the recent project we had for 2016 was a site built for customers finding the best deals on nearby car rentals. We wanted to keep a basic logo for the site since car rentals are a streamlined industry. Using a graphic that is too cartoonist could give the site a non-professional feel and look. Therefore, on the Car Rental Tips & FAQ’s – Rentalcarsnear.me page , we used a very clean, yet defined car rental logo image.

Our last request for RentalCarsNear.me was another destination page for their featured rental cars series. The city we had to find a graphic for was fun to research since the iconic Golden Gate bridge is a landmark for San Francisco CA. Therefore, on the San Francisco Rental Car – Rentalcarsnear.me page we decided to choose a classic graphic of the Golden Gate bridge. Using the historic and monumental bridge connects visitors with true feel of the city. Although San Francisco has numerous skyline views we could choose, our design using the iconic red bridge really enhanced the architecture of the rental car page.
