This is Cameron from Hawaii. I contacted you earlier. Anyway, I'll give you a summary of what we are looking for. Last time we agreed on $400 for the services.
I belong to a singing group called A TOUCH OF GOLD. We sing Motown songs from the 50's, 60's, 70's, to now. We are a unique group to Hawaii, being that we are one of the only few that offer this type of entertainment. We are looking to create a FLASH site which will help display our talents and information to potential customers. We are looking for a simple, yet eligant look, that matches our name "A Touch of Gold." (Not necessarily Gold in color, but the eligance of the name) I am open to your ideas of what the site could look like. I trust your creativity, and know you will find a perfect "look" for us.
Here is a part of the old post from the last project I posted. These were the pages I was planning on having in our site.
**Please read through**
So my bidding has ended, and you are among one of my top choices. I have been impressed with your past jobs, and think your portfolio matches what I want. I also want to take this opportunity to further in detail explain what I am looking for, before I make my FINAL decision. Please let me know if you are able to fulfill my request.
1. I am looking for something classy, and simple. We are called “A Touch of Gold”, and therefore want to incorporate the feeling of the name. The purpose of this website is to not only show people who we are, but to CONVINCE them to WANT to hire us for future gigs. The look of the site is important.
2. The following pages are what I have in mind:
Simple with a nice background graphic explaining the first paragraph. Maybe a side note thing like on this page [url removed, login to view] to go to the next paragraph.
b) The Show
Same as the homepage, a simple layout, with possible side note things like above . This page will give the customer a feel of how our show will go, and also inform them of prior types of parties we have entertained for.
c) About Us
First it will have a paragraph about our group, with a picture. Under that we would have a side note thing like above, which says “The Singers”. That will lead to another page (just like the one above does) to one with our names, and an individual bio of each member.
d) Upcoming Events
We are looking for a calendar type thing, that we would be able to update, so as to inform fans of upcoming performances open to the public. We would need to update this page, so it has to be something easy for us.
Just testimonials of past customers. Not sure if this is something we would be able to update as well (or be able to ADD more testimonials as they come.)
A gallery where we can have pictures of our shows. Something where we can always add more pics to it. Also, maybe some video clips of us performing.
I am hoping to have a quick flash intro to the site. Something similar to this [url removed, login to view] And maybe something like this [url removed, login to view] (I like the shimmering look of the opaque going through some of the squares. It matches a sequins jacket look, like what we wear.) Of course, with a different Motown song. Flashes of different photos of us, going to the beat of the song. This will probably be the last thing to work on.
Here is the final thing. I just found out that our group will be taking NEW pictures in about two weeks. So I was hoping to use these new pictures for the website. In other words, this project wouldn’t be able to start until then. Sorry.
Please let me know if this is something possible. Like I mentioned, I am happy with your work, and would be VERY HAPPY if you could be my webpage designer. I am eagerly awaiting your reply.
I have some pictures to give you an idea of who we are. I will also include some pics of our uniform, and signs, that you can possibly use in the site...if you want. Let me know how you want me to send them to you.
This project has a $400 budget. I appreciate your time and dedication. Can't wait to hear from you Zaki. If we can work this project out, to be completed in about a week, that would be great. I will be leaving on a trip at the end of next week. Thanks again.
