I am looking for someone to design a Wordpress theme for me. You will need to provide the completed PSDs to me and I will arrange the html production so there is no coding, just design.
I am looking for someone with previous WP theme design experience so please provide links to examples of your WP theme design work.
Here are some specific things I am looking for:
- The theme design will be a fairly generic layout with a standard home page, horizontal navigation in the header for pages and the usual blog style navigation on the right hand side for categories, recent posts, archives etc.
- The design should be smart and clean. I really like this style: [url removed, login to view] - simple, professional and clean.
- For visual interest the theme should use some kind of background image like the above example does. In this way I can change out the background image to theme the blog for different niche topics.
- The header will always use a standard text based title although it is OK to use any font in the design as long as it is supported by Google webfonts [url removed, login to view]
- The completed design must include the following pages:
-- Home page
-- Archives pages for category and date based archives
-- Single Post page which will be used for single posts and pages
-- Full width page (ie. no right hand nav) which can be used for single posts and pages.
-- Search Results page
- Other things to note:
-- Please incorporate the usual page and post meta data in the design.
-- Please do not include footer widget elements in the design
-- Category pages should include category descriptions in the design (ie. static copy that will appear above post listings)
-- Please include sub page level navigation elements, ie. what is displayed when someone hovers over a top level link in the pages navigation.
-- Please also think about display of images in posts and pages.
-- The design must also include consideration of all the usual in page elements such as sub headings, bullets (ordered and unordered), blockquotes, etc.
I've not run a project for a WP theme before so I've probably forgotten something. If you have any questions please hit the PMB. I'm happy to provide more details as required and would rather get it all out before the project starts. All the same, in your quote you should include contingency for several rounds of changes/tweaks.
Payment will be 100% via SL escrow.
