vitamins-for-hair-growth

The image above was used for the receding hairline treatment page that covers the main FDA hair loss approved products on the market such as the Lasercomb, Propecia, and Rogaine.  This image is very simple and safe to use for content based material.

For the saw palmetto hair loss page on Phime’s website, this image was used because it has a more character like feel to ease the subjects content about hair loss. The vitamins on their list included: Biotin for hair growth, MSM for hair growth, Omega-3, and Saw Palmetto for hair loss. These natural remedies for hair growth are considered completely natural and organic. Other natural hair growth remedies may include hair masks and rinses, juicing, and scalp massages.

Job Board Site Design

One of the biggest challenges for finding the right colors and graphics for this job near me 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 Jobs Hiring Near Me, 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 travel jobs, such as flight attendants and cruise ship jobs, we wanted to have a traveling job image that shows a neutral view of travel. The image fit perfectly at TravelingJobsNow.com. 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.

Rental Cars Near Me Site Design

car-rentals-in-miami

car-rentals-in-los-angeles

car-rentals-in-orlando

The first graphic was used for the car rentals Las Vegas 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 car rentals Miami 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 car rentals Los Angeles 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 car rentals Orlando page and was a good choice to show some the large buildings that can be found in the metro part of the city

rental-cars-near-me-graphic

car-rental-in-san-francisco

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 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 car rentals San Francisco 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.
