Terrific design. Quick response to all requests for changes as website was developed.
I will work with this designer again to write HTML and develop additional pages.
Great work! Thanks for your help on this project!

How Mynt started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Bay Street Tickets
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The website is a resource to search and buy the best tickets to the best events. It is primarily Toronto based, with a good proportion of the business being Toronto Maple Leaf NHL hockey tickets.
Audience:1. "Corporate" - Toronto legal and financial industry professionals taking clients to professional sporting events (or concerts or theater).2. "Fans" - individuals and/or groups looking for the best ticket for that very special event.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
1: Homepage mock-up:
- professional branding
- high end brand (not into cheap seats or specials)
- the BEST tickets to the BEST events
- trusted look and feel
- display that this is the #1 resource for Toronto tickets
- display that tickets to events all over the world are available from this site
GOAL: SIGN-UP, and/or SEARCH & BUY NOW
2: Inner page searchable / sortable ticket finder mock-up:
- very easy to navigate, search and sort/filter
GOAL: SEARCH & BUY NOW
We strongly urge you to work with CLEAN designs. We want to differentiate from the other ticket websites that are (in our opinion) far TOO BUSY, CROWDED and TEXT HEAVY. Our two types of visitors should know exactly where to click and what to do once seeing your intuitive and creative design.
What to avoid
See design brief attached.
Note the comparable sites. Some use stylized pics (to avoid copyright issues ... e.g. ticketpartners blue maple leaf icon with their logo in it meant to infer the Toronto Maple Leafs NHL hockey team) instead of actual pics of venues, sports teams, players in uniforms including logos. Others blatantly rip off logos and use them everywhere.
Our positioning is somewhere in the middle. We will be using actual photos from actual seats at the Toronto venues, and include shots of players in uniforms ... but will blur the logos on their jerseys.
We will use actual names of venues, and perhaps the logos from the venues themselves (e.g. Air Canada Center and Rogers Center being the two biggest in Toronto). We will avoid putting team logos (like Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Raptors, etc.) all over the site, as it would only be a matter of time before we would be asked to adjust that. So, the solution is to use as much imagery as possible and make adjustments where required. Please let your creative juices run here ... and can adjust with blurs if required ... just don't make a mockup riddled with pro logos cuz it won't fly.
We understand the creative process, and encourage you to add your valuable talent and expertise to this project. You are welcome to submit a mock-up exactly like the rough wire frames that are included in the design brief, AND/OR you are very welcome to submit your creative interpretation of a layout that would work best for this site. Look at the competitors listed and other sites provided, or even search yourself for ticket broker websites in other regions of the world to draw additional inspiration. We don't feel that there is a slam-dunk awesome amazing website focused on the Toronto market right now --- and we want to fill that void.
We understand that the mock-ups generally are drawn from the initial logo and color scheme. You are welcome to run with what is provided ... but if you are not feeling it and think that another logo or adjustments or color scheme would work better ... then by all means go that direction. We are not attached to this logo. The name and domain will remain the same (which is Toronto focused)
We will communicate with you throughout the process, so the earlier you start and submit, the better.
