I thought SEEK.com.au could use a refresh…so I just went ahead and designed/built it…
disclaimer: this is a front-end prototype only and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles I would imagine the final product would have. Oh, and I only tested in Chrome – Firefox screws up some of the animations (which I could fix but whatever…just use Chrome).
There are a bunch of cool features including:
- Seamless user flow from initial search right through to application – all on one “page.
- Animating search box.
- When you search, the circle search box animates into a rounded rectangle…pretty cool.
- And back again when you click on the logo.
- More search options slide down/up.
- Fast, easy and more engaging than the current live version of the SEEK advanced search option.
- Search results more options (the pink plus in the bottom right hand corner) – just looks nice.
- Streamlined application through lightbox.
There are heaps of elements I would build in on top of what’s already there…and, of course, I would make it work smoothly in Firefox, IE and all the other browsers.
In all, about 25 hours design and 40 hours development produced this new SEEK demo site.
