I need a very stylish, clean, modern, and colorful website consisting of a few web pages for brillyant.com (see "facebook.com/BeBrillyant"). A great focus will be placed on the site's appearance/visual appeal. I really like vibrant colors such as those used in the origami birds in the footer of the freelancer.com website.
I prefer the site to be coded in C#/ASP.NET/MySQL. However, I am open to other options. The site will contain:
- SEO code.
- A large product showcase that will rotate 3-5 PNG images. This images slideshow will be based on HTML5, jquery, modernizr, or similar. It will not contain Flash, Silverlight or other content that is dependent on browser plugins.
- A smaller showcase that will feature and allow playing of product promotional or how-to videos. These videos will bein 16:9 aspect ratio and must be able to play directly in the browser. When I create them I will make them compliant to HTML5 specs.
- A section showing a list of the most recent press releases, with links to each individual press release. I should be able to copy/paste in the press releases by utilizing some sort of secure admin interface. Simple editing of these press releases will require simple formatting options such as placing images and text with selections for font, font-size, font-style (italics/bold).
- A Downloads page where I can configure links to my products.

As visual appearance is one of the most important factors with this site, any submitted bids must provide a visual mock-up, image(s), or other form of sample!
BONUS: In separate projects I will also need:
- A new logo (large size PSD, 144 dpi), keeping with the "Brillyant sun / be brillyant" theme
- PNG graphics for the image slideshow / showcase
(These two items are NOT included in your bid)
