We have already created a mockup for our home page in PowerPoint (attached). So we know what we want the page to look like in terms of the elements and their layout on the page. We just need a graphic designer to translate it into an illustrator file which looks polished and professional and can be given to a Wordpress developer. This project is only the graphic design piece, NOT the Wordpress piece. The designer should follow the layout as shown but can apply at little creativity to each individual element. Please see below and the attached PDF.
We will eventually implement this in Wordpress, so please be aware to make your design easily implementable.
Thoughts on specific elements:
1. Logo needs to be left as is.
2. We’d like a nice implementation concept for the top level nav. The “How” link will have a dropdown sub menu which will drop down and lie horizontally below the current horizontal nav bar. You need to design this whole thing.
3. The “Order Now” link needs to stand out.
4. The whole header can either float in white or have a colored background – use your own artistic sense. Regardless of the header treatment, the user needs to be able to recognize the “why”, “how”, “pricing”, “order now”, and “sign in” links as links and not just text.
5. The “Easy Steps” graphic should be redesigned, but what you see represents the spirit of what we want. It needs to be simple and bold.
6. The “Keep the Memories” graphic does not need to be redesigned, and the size must remain the same as on our current website.
7. The “Get Estimate Now” button needs to be attention-getting. We want to attract people to it and encourage them to click on it.
8. The fonts need to be consistent across the page. We believe that the standard fonts in Wordpress are boring. We like how this page looks in terms of font, although we don’t need this exact font. www.aboutourwork.com
We will not be looking at bids over $350. We believe this is a small project.
