Open to anything when it comes to color/style. We like big text/typography. Focus on easy readability and tell a clear story. We like great UI, super intuitive. "What should I do here" should be very clear.
Here are the elements we would like on the page:
Localized header - Currently, our header image updates based on your state/city. It’s important for users of the website to feel “local” when browsing. The header should continue to convey the local feel.
Horizontal navigation bar - Top navigation should be for main links (home, events, deals, search). Search should be a dropdown with simple filters to select category or new locations - possibly text field that lets you type in a category that autofills
Footer with internal links -The footer should be multi column and contain internal links to top areas and categories. It should also include a contact form with a button
Top content block - A small block should be somewhere on the page that pulls in popular content
Upcoming events/Popular events block - Similar to top content, an events block with upcoming or popular events should be on the page
New/Top deals block, same as above (popular events)
Map with pins - A map element listing out business locations should be on the page, similar to Yelp’s map feature
Social button/icon layout - Social buttons to Like/Tweet/+1 the page should be easily accessible and clickable
