In total, we want two pages designed for this specific contest (listed below). The most important thing is getting the navigation bar and overall format correct which could lead to future business.
1) Profile Page - this is the farmer's or land owner's profile or homepage. This should highlight the user, provide pictures of their equipment and/or land, and allow them to highlight all the great things about them. We are imagining something comparable to an online dating (think Match.com) profile page. We have included some rough mockups as well as samples from other sites in the powerpoint. The biggest challenge is that we will have three types of users with slightly different profile metrics. These users are farmers, land owners, and users who both own land and are farmers.
I have mocked this up based on sample sites, but this is completely flexible. We would love a designer who can make this more creative and intuitive by applying your experience.
2) Search Page - this is where the user can search for other users through multiple filters. We are imagining the basic search function with the ability to drill down further through an advanced search. At the basic search level the user selects if they are a "famer" or "land owner," what they are looking for either a "farmer" or "landowner," how far of a mile radius they want to search and then their zip code. We are still finalizing what metrics will be included in the advanced or additional search function, but included some initial thoughts in the powerpoint.
Again, this based off of our sample sites, but encourage creativity to make this better!
(Note)There are multiple other pages that could be added after the contest is over. If we really like a design and direction we are willing to pay additional money offline to have these pages designed. There could be up to 10 pages.
