I have a website that was recently converted from Joomla to Wordpress. I need someone to create the template for the Wordpress site that is a new design and nothing like the old Joomla template. Once approved and installed, the menus and modules will need to be configured.
A sample of what I'm envisioning is attached. It is a collection of elements that we like from three different cookie cutter templates from themeforest put together into one (I understand that some design elements may not work under one template, but this is close to what I'd like to see. If you can create this or something similar to this - and do it on an extremely low budget, then you are our designer.
The template must be optimized for speed, so no unneeded CSS, theme switching codes or other unneeded clutter. We are switching from our slow Joomla system and template because we want the Wordpress benefits of speed and SEO.
The designer will be allowed to place a "Designed by" credit and link on the bottom which will remain there for the duration of the template's use and you can supply us with a banner that we will rotate on the site for one year (we had 2 million unique views last year on the Joomla site). This should help compensate for a low quote.
This is strictly a budget project, although consider that the lowest bid may not necessarily win. Samples of previous work (which show template speed and unique design) are encouraged.
Thank you for your consideration and time.
