We are seeking a highly skilled creative designer who can think "out of the box" and create a work of the highest quality that is noticeably unique and captivating. Absolutely NO TEMPLATES. Furnish examples of YOUR work if you bid. Please read this entire project description before submitting your bid. We are seeking a VERY HIGH IMPACT home page. You are only creating ONE page (the Home page). The website will be for a ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING BUSINESS. The design must be original, royalty-free, copyright-free and exclusive. The design elements must be absolutely specific to an ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING BUSINESS. No generic design will be accepted. The design must be obviously specific to this business type. We require a flash header and flash effect in the Nav as follows: We want the company name AND telephone number "flying" quickly into the header area in perfect timing with a quality sound file. Also must include this slogan "Years of Experience and Integrity You Can Count On" in the header motion. We require a flash header with moving images & the company name, telephone number & slogan that is carefully coordinated with quality sound, BUT the entire effect must be quick, not longer than 5 seconds. NOTE this is not a flash intro, but rather a flash header on the page. Example are provided below. The focus the design elements of the header will be ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING BUSINESS related images showing both RESIDENTIAL and COMMERCIAL work. Any images used in the design which include pictures of people must be non-descript. In other words use pictures of people who could be anyone, like distant pictures of people. Important note: All images used in the design must be specifically relevant to the U.S.A. ONLY. Make 100% certain ALL images you use in the design meet this requirement. We also require nav with sound effect upon mouse over. Here are the required Nav buttons: Home, About Us, Services, Contact Us, Page 5, Page 6 (Buttons to display in this exact order.) Please note you are only designing the home page. Somewhere on the page (you select the best location based on your design concept) we require a feed from [url removed, login to view] and mapquest.com. See these examples for this requirement: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] Please also note in the above examples how the sound, company name, phone number, and company slogan are coordinated with the Flash/Sound/Motion effects. These elements are very critical to the design we require. Also note how each design is VERY SPECIFIC to the business type. This is CRITICAL. The above are just examples to give you some ideas of what we like. The design is 100% your responsibility. We would suggest the winning bidder initially submit concepts so that we let you know the direction to go based on your concepts. We are not designers nor are we creative people, it is 100% your responsibility to create this project. The quality of the Flash effects and uniqueness of the nav will be key to this design. The examples give above are some designs ELEMENTS we like. Here is one IMPORTANT design element we are looking for: Although the basic layout is a header at the top, with nav along the left side and or below the header, the design in this example does a very good job of disguising the "box" look so many templates have: [url removed, login to view] If you look at the design closely you will notice how the un-symmetrical images in the header gives the site a unique and non-template feel. This is the type of creativity and quality we are seeking. Site content (text) will be loaded by ourselves at a later date. NO FLASH in the content part of the site! You must use "filler" for the content part of the page but provide TWO relevant images within the content part of the page. The design layout of the page must fill up the whole screen AND resize itself to fill the page regardless of the resolution setting, without ANY left-right scroll. Design the page to fit in 800x600 AND adjust to larger/smaller resolutions so that it will ALWAYS align properly within the web browser (create it to be 770 x 570). The entire job must be sent to us so that we can edit all images and files as required. This job must be sent to us as a layered psd file as well as an html webpage. The webpage must be clean and able to function with Cold Fusion (no unnecessary tags or code). We prefer the site to be designed in Macromedia HomeSite or DreamWeaver. The design must be original, royalty-free, copyright-free and exclusive. The design you create for us must only be provided to us for our exclusive use. All the text needs to be html text. Do not turn the text into graphics because we want to be able to change it in the future. With the exception of the flash header, all the images used MUST be optimized gifs or jpegs only! You must send us all files associated with the site css, gifs, jpegs, flash, html, psd, etc. We want to make the project easy and successful for you and us.
