We are developing a real estate site focused on data. The site will help the end user looking for a new house or flat to learn as much as possible about the municipality, neighborhood and address.
There is a lot of data and the challenge is to display it in way that it is easy for the user to find and understand this information.
We are looking for a designer which takes the lead in defining the concept of the new site. This professional shall be ready to dig into the details and try to understand the numbers and data we want to display as it is impossible to find a good design when the designer does not care about the meaning of the data.
We want an implicit style guide (which element has which font and color), there shall also be consistency in navigational elements.
We want an optimal mix of graphics and color to help the user understand the elements easily.
We have sections like:
points of interests
travel distances to next center
weather and sun exposure
For the points of interests there will be a page with a map. However on the main page we want to give a summary of the distances, direction and slope of some selected pois (like school, supermarket or bus stop). Attached some drafts in tabular format. We think this can be refined and made clearer, so that the end user quickly sees whether the distance is long or short or whether it is a short distance but a steep walk.
