Freelance Web Designer
We are City Discovery, a 40 people internet company spread between France, U.S. and the Philippines. What we do is quite simple : we find activities everywhere in the world for tourists to enjoy more their vacations. It could be skip the line tickets for the Eiffel Tower, or some Air Balloon tour in Spain.
Think about us like a booking.com for tours, in a smaller scale.
We have been around for 10 years and now we have around 7000 products in more than 600 cities. It’s a lot to manage, with a lot of design constraints. And now it’s time for us to simplify our website.
We are making a complete makeover of the website little by little. We do a lot of experiments, testing different UX. But we are lacking a consistent graphic identity.
We need to have defined some key pages ( home page, product page ) and a styleguide for us to be able to move forward.
The styleguide would encompass :
- Margins, paddings
- Form elements
You’ll be working closely with our product team ( Wlad and Julien, they are nice guys I’ve heard ).

Hipmunk for the clean design and the tone globally
