I'm currently starting up a small travel tour company for active vacation tours in Sweden focusing on bike tours, running tours and skiing tours. I need help setting up a website for this new bussiness.
Project hard facts:
Website to be in English only
Checkfront to be used for booking with stripe as payment gateway
Wordpress to be used as main system
Pictures and videos will be provided by me and my photograph.
Webhosting, domain name, checkfront account and stripe will be set up by me
X theme ([url removed, login to view]) preferably to be used (I own a copy)
Project summary, more details below:
1. Web Design of a Wordpress site (preferably with X theme which I own a copy of) containing:
2. Implementation of customized Checkfront
3. Logo design.
More details for each of above steps:
1 and 2. Webdesign and Checkfront implementation
Wordpress should be used and I prefer it's designed with X theme but that's not mandatory. What is preferred is that it will be easy to maintain and add changes to the templates, which makes the X theme excellent.
The site should have Checkfront as backed for bookings and for you it's necessary to be able to customize checkfront so it will harmonize with the design of the site. I.e. you should have skills to use the Checkfront API
Pages that I need
a) A front page - including photo slider with overlay texts to promote selected tours, a grid or a list with photos and short description of the tours (will be about 12-15 tours and should include a more info button plus information from checkfront is tour is available or sold out), a close to fullsize video as splash screen, a grid with bulletpoints (short selling arguments), a grid with sponsor logos, a short description of the company.
b) Template for tours - should be easy to add new tours and archive tours. The template should include photo slider, tour header (text only), sliding quotes area (comments from previously customers), Expandable day to day information about the tour (The template should be able to handle up to 15 days but 8 days is a normal tour. Each day should include a text area, which hotel we will stay at, special daily activity, daily distance / hours on the bike/running), Grid or list of facts (dates, price, tour type, max attendances, tour length, average distance per day, typical weather conditions, what to bring, if possible to rent bikes/equipment, whats included in the price (like hotel, food activities), whats not included, where trip starts/ends, closest airport, train station or buss station), integration with checkfront (i.e. a book now button plus if available or sold out)
c) a template to be used for pages like about us, FAQ, etc
3 Logo design.
I've got a draft but I'm not 100% confident with it, but it can be used as an idea. The logo should use preferably two colors and need to made so it will be say to print on clothes and other stuff. Photoshop/Illustrator files and high res jpg should be provided. More information about the message I want to provide with the logo will be given to the person who will be assigned for the project.
The mission here is to rewrite my material into "marketing language" and to write short selling points for the front page. The material is about 50 A4 pages.
