Hello, please take the time to read carefully all project details and checking pictures before copy/pasting your sales speech or i will ignore it....
1. I have a studio which we provide full featured web portals for our clients, i'm looking forward someone who can easily follow the provided "draw specs" as i need an additional designer for my team. The whole point is finding someone with whom i can work on a regular basis and can follow up the sketch specs and ask me for feedback during the "make it cute" process. You will rarely be having to actually create designs, but follow the design sketches i give you out and simply provide me with existent samples of components ( social icons, buttons, fonts, etc... ) to choose from and then make it look awesome. Right now the designers with whom i work, depending on the site and their inspiration mood, with the type of specs i deliver, a design doesn't take them more than 1/3 days as the sketched specs are usually very complete. Not attached to project, but once awarded, i will even send you a .PSD with some work already done so you have an even better idea of the final product i need ( Pallete, section separators, fonts and header layout already mocked up in photoshop more or less... ). Still, that is only for MORE inspirational specs, if not i would directly make the design ;)
2. We usually develop sites with a very well balanced comic/cartoonish and classy HQ themes. Looking forward a designer who actually has a very good sense of taste, can balance between these two themes and take special attention to details ( backgrounds, smoothness on different sections on same page, integration of illustrations among the whole design in a "fashion non standard style", etc... ). Following some sample sites we like for you to get the idea and get inspired ( you can always also go to inspiratefirst or similar sites for samples ;P ) : http://sirjohnaday.com/, http://www.mitchlana.com/, http://www.designbombs.com/, etc...
3. Don't copy/paste a sales speech, just make sure you read carefully what i just said, as at the end i need you to be able to take directions... and just stick me your portfolio link or even better ( will be considered ), designs you already done with the themes described and showed.
4. Check the attached sketches, give me a fair price and lets start a long term business relation ship.
Site Specs are on sketches, if you have any question, please ask before bidding. As on any design you do, i might ask you in the middle of the process some small changes, but if you check the detailed specs, you'll notice this will rarely happen, probably, after defining the main aspects ( pallete, fonts, etc ), i will rarely bother you as instead you should ask me constantly for feedback on the overall component design process you are working on and then i will let you do your stuff :) There are three sketches, but i will probably need an extra contact and profile page which honestly i was tired of writing, but when checking sketches you will see that the secondary pages are almost a re-utilization of the components on index page, so i insist, this work, if you are skilled and inspired shouldn't take you more than 1/3 days... My current designers which are used to this sketching/feedback process, usually deliver awesome sites in one day... ( They are really talented designers... )
The most challenging thing on design actually might be the header.... then we can use/integrate lots of already done out there samples of components ;) Remember, looking for a skilled designer who takes special attention on details and knows how to paste all components in a smooth/fancy way, the thing i actually lack doing, as then, its all already done out there ;)
NO HTML / CSS / ETC EXPERIENCE NEEDED, JUST CREATIVE DESIGNER WITH A BUNCH OF INSPIRATIONAL SAMPLES TO SHOW BEFORE APPROACHING EACH COMPONENT AND WHO PAYS SPECIAL ATTENTION ON DETAILS AND CAN FOLLOW SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS AND THE PROVIDED SKETCHES.
