I need to apply/design a custom template to a joomla site. I am using joomla because it is free, powerful and fairly easy to use as a CMS. However I have specific colors and style from my client so I need to customize the joomla site and not look for one of the many already designed templates on the web.
I have not even setup the joomla site yet but will do so. If you want to offer to do the site and design and you are good at it then feel free to make an offer for that as well and be specific about what you will offer for that price.Please only professionals and someone who can respond to me fairly quickly and not one or two days later. This project is important and needs to be done quickly not months from now.
So here is the overall picture of the design. This is for a dermatologist (skin) doctor’s office, she has an existing website now but the logo and overall design of the office has changed since that website was done. She wants something that matches the 4 primary colors of her office and logo; Garnet Red, gray, logo blue and black.
She wants the background of the site to have the gray color of her office, it’s a darker gray but not extremely dark either. It would be nice with a combination of a very cool and professional pattern in the lower half of the background or something very nice so it’s not just the gray color alone.
The body of the site would be white background with dark gray (almost black) text.
She wants the color of all the headers tags (H1, H2 etc.)(copied from her current site) to be a copper color. I don’t know if copper can be replicated in color but she wants whatever is as close to a copper color (ask me for a sample of copper if you need it to see the color).
The menu’s would be simple, as follows:
• Procedural Dermatology
• What's New
• Contact Us
She wants the color red/garnet of her office to be on the site as well (maybe the header, or whatever you suggest)
The red will be a little hard to integrate since the logo of the site is a blue..I will leave that up to you to come up with ideas.
The main colors of the site are the logo blue, the gray, the copper and the white background of the body/text. (I have attached some office pictures for you to view. They are not great but they show the main idea of the look of the office.
So those are the colors for the site itself. This is why I need a custom design modification for the joomla page.
Now for the layout of the site I have a good idea of what the home page should look like, I can draw it on a paper and scan it to you if he needs. I like simple, clean, professional sites that don’t have a lot of distractions.
If you can design something that will just blow peoples minds then it would be great and make me want to work with you for many projects coming up.
She will also send me pictures of what she wants to use for the site, she does not want any stock photography, she has her pictures.
She may want a flash header, but I am suggesting against it as it won’t match what she wants to design..unless we can add a very simple flash animation to the logo or somewhere else maybe?
They also want a mobile version of the site similar to this site: http://www.cheftianexpressmiami.com/ (the mobile version of it, she likes that simple style and only wants two pages on the mobile site not all of them, if possible.)
Please ask me any questions prior to bidding and you have to show me examples of work you have done before and have at least 6 reviews on freelancer.

More specifically, if you can modify this exact template to the colors that i want it would work wonderful (modify css and images). I would also need to design the icons for the menu that fits the industry.
