I'm looking for someone to help me design and develop a custom Wordpress portfolio website for a high end home builder. The wordpress template should be responsive, mobile friendly and SEO optimized.
Using the description and details provided below, i'd like bidders to submit a mockup of the homepage as well as a portfolio page for their entry.
All design submissions should be simple, elegant and have nice typography. Here are a couple basic builder portfolio websites to serve as inspiration:

Portfolio (will need to have page separate page that displays all portfolio items (one pic each), where visitors can select the individual house they'd like to further explore, which is the "portfolio page". For this mockup i only need to see an individual portfolio page)
Services (will need dropdown/subcategories)
News (blog template)

- Here is a link to a folder with sample portfolio images (4 houses) that can be used for both the home page and portfolio page mockup:
• [url removed, login to view]
- I'm open to creative ideas but should include the following elements:
1. Emphasize the clients' portfolio images
- Can be done by choosing 2-3 large background images that rotate per visit (ex. [url removed, login to view])
- Or find another way to feature 3-5 portfolio items
• ex. Have a section of the home page feature select portfolio items (each with large featured images) - you can draw inspiration from the "homepage grid gallery" found in this wordpress theme as I like how a title appears upon hover - [url removed, login to view]
• ex. A nice featured slider - i like the "horizontal scroll with blog" homepage found in this wordpress theme - [url removed, login to view]
• ex. A nice featured slider - [url removed, login to view]
2. Include area for a headline (up to two sentences) - location is up to you, but near the top would be preferable
- Mockup can include something like "At Toronto custom homes we offer integrated architecture, interior and garden design services for luxurious city homes, country estates and vacation residences in Canada and abroad."
4. Horizontal optin form in the middle/bottom of the page
- ex. the optin form found on this website - [url removed, login to view]
5. Footer with widget space for about us, contact us (w/forum) and recently hastagged Instagram images (also should have links to Facebook and twitter)
- Should be consistent with design of the home page
- Choose one of the 4 houses and mockup the design
- Here i''m leaving the design open to your interpretation. The only necessity is that the pictures are emphasized and they are easy to navigate.

Please include links 1-2 websites you've built along with your submission.
