I am currently having a team take care of the frontend/backend development of a new site. They wanted to try a 'basic' header/footer, but I think it's too basic and that we can show something more memorable. I'd prefer the concentrate on finishing up the rest of the site instead of focusing their time on redoing the header/footer.
You can see the green header/footer as it currently will look when it's done by going to [url removed, login to view]
I am looking for someone who is creative who will make the header and footer look a little more interesting. Perhaps some animated smoke? Perhaps some hi-res leaves? Plant roots? Seeds? Smoke? Marijuana seedlings? Hashish? This is a cannabis website, so please keep that in mind when brainstorming on how to make the above URL header/footer leave a lasting impression on visitors. I want people to look at the header/footer and say, "Wow that looks really cool!"
Perhaps you can use part of the current logo that can be found by going to s-t-o-n-e-r-s dot o-r-g (without dashes), I have the original artwork. The current logo is a cartoon version of myself holding a glass bong.
To reiterate, you can see the way the header/footer will look when it's finished by going to: [url removed, login to view] - I would like for you to be creative and make the header/footer more appealing, eye catching, and memorable.
The header/footer should not die when older browsers view it. It would be best to avoid Flash in case some users are using an Iphone or other browser without flash enabled. Unless there is a way to use something in the event flash is disabled. I am not a designer so I want you to use your talent in helping me have a cool header/footer.
After selecting a bid, I would prefer a mockup or graphical representation of what you plan to do, before I escrow the payment. This can be negotiated, but I would feel more comfortable having an idea of what the finished product will look like before putting the escrow into place.
Please bid fairly - You can have the best feedback but if I can't afford you it will do neither of us any good.
