I am looking to completely change an existing website with a new look/design. I need an experienced web designer/graphic artist that can create a professional looking website. I would like to see if I can incorporate some of the color scheme of the old site – but nothing else. I want a completely new look & template.
I need the following:
1. Two HTML pages:
Page 1: is the index page (which will have ONE extra design element on it)
Page 2: should be identical to the Page 1 HTML page, so that I can use it for the other pages on the site (simply minus the extra element)
2. Two contact forms (one simple, one for sending detailed info)
3. One “free report box” in sidebar, integrating Aweber autoresponder code I'll give you.
4. Social media links: Facebook, RSS, Twitter buttons integrated into top right of site
5. Blog (no installation necessary – just quote a price to match colors and header to it). Must know Thesis.
Tools & specifications to be used:
1. CSS coding fully documented /*inside the CSS file*/
3. Photoshop - PSD's
4. SEO tags (include placeholder tags in HTML for me to drop in titles, descrp, keywords)
5. must be W3C Compliant, compatible across all browsers.
There will be a members area, however I am using Amember for the member content protection, so you don't need to address that. It's done.
For my blog element, I use Thesis and have a developers license. If you would like to price your bid to include a basic color / header design that incorporates my site colors, feel free. Please price it separately. If you don't know Thesis, no worries. I have a Thesis/Word Press designer I already use, who can do it.
At the conclusion of the project, I will need ALL source files.
Please provide me a list of at least 5 recent web design projects you completed. Please be sure to explain what you did and what tools you used.
Ways to make sure I don't consider you:
Submit yourself for this project without a bid.
Send me a generic post/bid that doesn't address any of my requirements.
Fail to put “health and wellness website” in your bid post (so I know you read this)
Please read the entire document again to make sure you understand my requirements. Please bid for the ENTIRE job.
Time frame: I want to launch on April 1st. I need a written guarantee that the site will be completed by March 28th. NO exception. Don't bid if you're too busy to take this on.
Whoever is awarded this project, payment will be made at the conclusion. I will not make partial payments nor escrow any funds until the project is complete. No exceptions.
I've been on this site for many years, and I just lost my regular web designer to a move/new job, so I am looking for a long term relationship, with the possibility of future work, if it goes well.
I am a communicator, and you must be too. Not staying in touch with me, and your progress, is NOT OK. Must be available on Skype, daily. I won't be in constant contact, but I do want to know I CAN contact you, if need be.
Please see attached document for exact specifications to help you bid accurately.
Again this is for:
TWO HTML pages utilizing web design and Photoshop skills.
Two contact forms
One “free report” box integrated with Aweber on a sidebar
And a separate matching blog theme quote.
** You are providing me with HTML pages. I will be dropping in all content and uploading to my site. PLEASE MAKE SURE to include in your bid, 1 hour's worth of time to help me test/tweak the site once I've got it all uploaded.
Thanks for taking the time to read!
