Project Budget (USD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
We are creating a parenting blog for mothers in America. This is a Wordpress theme that is in need of creation. We have the basic template of the design, but you will need to play off of it and create the live version. It's minimal, clean, functional, and easy on the eyes. Pages and posts can look the same. We'd like to attempt get some sort of abstract graphic like 100layercake.com in the background, but shouldn't repeat (should be centered). You should be great with illustrator and graphic design for this.

2 sidebars, 1 news content area in the middle. The footer should look similar to 100layercake.com, but not too exact. The color palette is very pastel and a bit vintage looking. We have our own logo that needs to be used on the website.

Other specifications:

- Entire layout should be 1200 PX so that at least the news content area is 500 PX wide.
- Navigation bar on the header should have any option for a drop down menu. The bar itself should look like the ribbon seen in the sample mock up. Links can be easily changed in the menu in Wordpress.
- Logo should be clickable to the website index page.
- Pages/Posts should look the same.
- Footer should look like 100layercake.com and the white background should end there. Page links should be at the bottom. Should also say: "Copyright 2012 - The Mod Child. All Rights Reserved."
- The 2 sidebars have a colored background.
- Entire website should be centered.
- Font should be normal sized 12px or so.
- Commenting area on each post should look like this: http://thechalkboardmag.com/getting-started-with-cultured-foods
- Posts need to have a featured image option, and a 'read more' link after about 10 lines of text. Image should have a white frame border with a slight drop shadow.

Budget: $150.00 (we basically have the design, you just need to code it)
