I became a member of Cendant's Creative Development Group to develop the user interface and supporting graphics for "NetMarket Tomorrow," an advanced CD-ROM like travel web site showing what Cendant's NetMarket could be like in the year 1999. The Chairman of Cendant, Walter Forbes, demonstrated the site at various financial seminars to promote Cendant's cutting edge role in web commerce.

The prototype uses Netscape 4.0 layers to provide a rich multimedia experience complete with floating content pages, floating tool modules, and easy to use drag and drop shopping. All elements have subtle 3D beveling and drop shadows to create a believable layered desktop environment.

Designed all graphical elements of a sophisticated CD-ROM like travel web site taking advantage of Netscape layers

This image shows the main travel desktop which serves as the backdrop of all travel content pages. A navigation bar at the top of the screen shows user's current location and gives access to drop down menus for quick navigation. Browser controls are located immediately below the bar on the right hand side of the screen. Ad banners scroll and animate in a constantly changing cutout in the desktop.
Here a vacation package is featured providing the user with background information, video, and Quicktime VR. The user can return to the travel home page by simply clicking on the 'X' to close the current content page.
Adding a vacation package to your planner is as easy as dragging and dropping a suitcase. Users can then customize car rental, flight, or accomodations with one click.
User modules float above the content pages and dock conveniently out of the way on the sides of the screen. Here the shopping cart module is parked in the upper left hand corner of the screen while the calendar and passport modules are open in the middle. The passport module which manages the user's account is shown with a help slider activated. At the top of the screen, a module manager has been extended which lets the user turn modules on and off.
