Adaptive and fluid design
I have approached the design of the website using the "mobile-first" mentality. This way the design started for the mobile devices and the content was tailored for these needs. Using a defined custom grid system, the scaling process went smooth and all the elements found their right place.
The homepage had to a accommodate brand elements and answer the main 3 questions you have when you open a new website: where am I, what can I do here and how to do it. This is why I created a custom gradient overlay from the 3 base colors of the brand, to be used on all the brand pictures used on the website or on social media.
The hero text will explain what can you do here and the custom search box, above the fold, will show you how to do it. Also it incorporates logos from partner websites and the big credit card logos in the footer, for security and social proof.
The results page contains all the elements you need to customize the perfect flight: filters, an overview of your search, the possibility to change it with just one click, a total number of the results so you can have a sense of orientation while searching through the list, the 3 type of recommended results: cheapest, fastest and best.
An opportunity to get a better deal if there is one on an adjacent date and the sorted list of all the results.
