The name of the client is Craiglist, which was established in 1995 and was first used in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Craigslist is an American classified advertisement website with sections that include jobs, housing, for sale items, services, community service, gigs, résumés, and discussion forums. The point of contact for this website will be CEO of Craiglist Jim Buckmaster. The site host classified ads that cover practically every category you can think of, including housing, job postings, items for sale, services and personals. Users are able to view all the classified ads for free and are only required to pay if they want to post a job opportunity; all other postings are free of charge. Craiglist started as a community based website for residents of San Francisco to post any services that need help with as well personal items they wanted to sell. For 25 years, the main website has stayed in the same format and hasn’t been designed to look modern in today’s website pages. Craiglist is hoping to have a newly fresh website to have a better sectioned format and draw in a a young audience from ages 18 to 28. The content will remain the same but will have better layout choices.
