Our existing website uses tables very heavily and we want to update the site with the use of CSS. I have all the site graphics that I would use, so I really only need the design.
Here are two sites that I really like the look and feel of:
1.) [url removed, login to view]
2.) [url removed, login to view]
Desired portions of site:
These sites both have floating pods for navigation links, which is an appealing characteristic of what we are searching for. I want the site to be flexible and have a few variations of the layout so that I can choose whether or not to show a flash video at the top (I would do this, but would need a placeholder) whereas other pages may only require a title.
Please take a few minutes to browse these two sites as I would like to avoid confusion or extensive repeated discussions of design requirements, when there are samples at these two sites. You can see our color scheme on [url removed, login to view] (current site) (Blue, Black, Grey).
I would like to have the delivered by April 2, 2007 and have a firm budget of $250 USD.
Please include samples of "relevant" work you have done. Only designers who have experience with CSS will be considered - We don't want to be a guinea pig project.
Menus for navigation must not use FLASH at all.
Payment will be as follows:
* Down payment - upon selection of vendor (place 50% into escrow)
* Delivery payment - once I have files and can ensure ease of integration with my web content - I will use it on one sample page of our site to ensure the requirements have been met (I don't want to find out after looking at a beautiful sample that a non-standard technique was used and we be stuck with a site that is difficult to use)
The need to insert flash on a page is not limited to flash only, but could include a graphic file as well for the header image.
