LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

Site has been running for about 5 years, and started out as a really small pet project and a free open source template. After some minor SEO and web design of my own, the site has consistently grown in visitor counts. We'd like to change the site to be more user interactive with user driven/moderated content. Revenue is currently very small through advertisement.

The current site is at www.chicagoprixfixe.com, ugly I know.

HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:

web design, css coding, and possibly logo design. Backend will be developed by me.

I would prefer the use of a layout system like 960.gs, and for the most part, tables should not be used for layout purposes. Tables can be used for widgets, but not for layouts.

if you would like to include "fancier" javascript type effects, that is fine, and I can do the coding for them if you do the graphics/css etc.

You can look at the current site interaction model to get a sense of how the pages work together. For the most part it's pretty simple and the main design elements are:

- summary view of specials per day, category, location

- detailed view of a restaurant and all its deals

I will also need a standard form layout.

One element that is not included in the design currently is that I would like users to be able to "verify" a deal, and favorite a deal, and show %s like retailmenot.com

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:

Currently, the audience is the average consumer who is looking for a dining deal in Chicago. We may expand the audience to include restauranteurs who would like to self-advertise.

WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:

Some similar sites that I like are groupon.com and retailmenot.com. smalltabs.com also isn't bad.

We are definitely going for nice clean layout (yes, I know everyone is.)

If you can incorporate "chicago" colors (the chicago flag), that's cool, if not, no big deal either.
