Project Description:
PROJECT REQUIREMENTS:
1. We need a new Home Page!!!!!
2. We need a help with the secondary page ~ but this should be easy once the Home page is finished. This page will
have to work for all our category personas (FAMILIES, MEDICAL, EDUCATORS, COUNSELORS, HEALTH/YOGA TEACHERS
3. We need a little help with extra graphics if needed. Again, the Home page will most likely give us what we need sitewide but I'm putting this in here just in case.

...

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS:
- Clean and minimalist
- White background
- CSS based design --> overall colors, gradients, shading, borders, etc must be able to be programmed via CSS rather than using graphical images (some exceptions can be made)
- Creative look and placement of sections (endorsements, awards, tagline, company summary, newsletter signup, large footer, banner area, etc.)
- We have 3 main colors in our current company designs. You need to use these but can add additional complimentary colors as you see fit.
- Fonts used in the menu and page text must be browser based
- We have the logo, a couple basic images and mockups of what we want
- Must be a unique and modern design.

...

SKILL REQUIREMENTS:
- Overall you must understand how graphic design for websites work because of browser related issues regarding graphics, SEO, CSS, metatags and browser based fonts issues, etc.
- You must first be a highly skilled and website savvy graphics designer. Strong graphics design skills must be demonstrated.
- You must be creative and know how to use color.
- You must have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, javascript coding so that when you finish the design you are also able to assist the programmer (if necessary) with any CSS related issues. NOTE: We have a programmer that will code the site in Wordpress but we want you to be available to make changes to the design based on the coding.
- Familiarity with Wordpress is a bonus.

...

OVERALL:
- This project requires strong communication skills with the expectation of updates each step of the way.
- Links to previously completed work are necessary and will improve your chance of being selected.
- Please examine the attached file carefully.
- Submitting a landing page mock-up may improve your chances of being selected.
- Website is being developed with Wordpress
- Unlimited revisions (but we're reasonable - we just need it right)
- Files must be provided in layered .psd format
- All working files will be needed at job completion

NOTE: Please see attached file for mock-ups and more information.

FEEDBACK

Sept 08
- We must be able to see samples of your work so you must have a portfolio.
- I must emphasize that this is more of a design project than a coding project and we don't want boring or boxy. We want fresh and current design. I, myself, am a designer and a website coder familiar with actionscript, HTML, CSS, PhotoShop and Illustrator - and I'll be choosing the winning bid based on met requirements and I can tell if you actually read the entire brief. Maybe say something in your message indicating you did rather than a generic "We would be excited to work on your project."

Since this is out first project post, we realize that bidders may not be as interested but we will be putting money in the Freelancer escrow payment today or tomorrow.

Also, for what this project really needs, we are leaning towards lower priced bids. I think the higher bids are not reasonable for this project - but we all have our price dont we?? ;-) This project is really about minimalist design rather than creating a whole website with programming - since we have programmers in-house. Thx.

Wow! Thanks to so many of you who changed your bid and sent responsive notes. I can tell that many of you are truly interested in the opportunity for this project. That's great. We have a number of good quality "freelancers" who have bid. Truly, I'm not to be "cheap" but the work necessary is very limited and our in-house team will be able to help even with tweaking the PhotoShop files. So again, you won't be "worked to death" with changes once we're in the ballpark of a design that is working.

I imagine we'll be making our selection soon. THX!
