Our business is seeking a new web site
We are looking for a long term web designer and programmer, who will be helping design and code the front end of the site. To do this, we are setting a small job to evaluate freelancers.
This job is a demonstration of your abilities and communications skills. We will require design of 10 MORE pages after this, and this is an audition. The total value will be over $1500. We will also require other long term design work.

This job is only for the mockup. If you have coding skills to implement the mockup, let me know in your bid so we can consider you for the next step.

Our site is an e-commerce site. We will have products displayed in tiles on the home page.

We have attached the logo (logo.gif) for our company for you to get a “feel” for the website.

First, look at sketch.jpg

Fixed-width, center-aligned
Width: 980 pixels
Height: unlimited. Initial load is 650 pixels. Infinite scroll (extends when scrolled to bottom)

Follow strictly the layout sketch (layout.jpeg). You can decide everything else not in the layout, including the font, buttons, spacing, the sizes of each page element, the size of each section and of placement and any blank spaces.
However, do not add or remove elements.

The top of every page will feature a common bar area (with a distinctive background color of green) with menu buttons, log-in, and sign up. We want a green background color.

The middle (roughly 30% from the top) will be to display product tiles of various sizes. The middle section will have a white background. Each product tile is composed of a photograph of the product, overlaid with the current price and amount sold.

See etsy.png for a similar layout.
Please see box.net.png for the “look” we want for the top bar area.

The center of the page is the product tiles. We will be using http://isotope.metafizzy.co/ or any similar tool with the same functionality. We will be implementing INFINITE SCROLL functionality (see http://isotope.metafizzy.co/demos/infinite-scroll.html).

Please design the product tiles too. Examples are in the producttiles.jpg ‘s.
Please use the phrase “Cairn Terrier” in your submission so I know you actually read the specs.

Color scheme is strictly designated in sketch. Green and white. The exact shade of green is up to you. DO NOT SUBMIT OTHER COLORS.

The evernote.com.png screenshot shows a suggestion for the type of green we like.

Skills required:
Graphic Design, Illustrator, Photoshop, User Interface / IA, Website Design
