Contest Brief

Looking for a custom WordPress travel blog. My site is located at http://www.passportdave.com. I have previously used pre-built WordPress travel blog templates but have not been satisfied with them. There is simply not enough selection out there for this genre.

Looking for a custom WordPress travel blog. My site is located at http://www.passportdave.com. I have previously used pre-built WordPress travel blog templates but have not been satisfied with them. There is simply not enough selection out there for this genre.

WHAT IS [url removed, login to view]
This is a project that I am starting to travel the world long term and document all my adventures along the way. I will be starting out in SouthEast Asia at the start of the new year with the goal of visiting every country on the planet over the next decade.

DESIGN?
I like lighter colored designs. Minimalism is great but only to the point where it can retain the functionality and information of any mainstream travel blog. One travel blog that I really enjoy is www.wanderingearl.com. Other than that, I will leave the creative genius to the designers.

Along with the design, I would also like a logo created that will not only be used on the WordPress site but that will also be used to stamp my personal photographs and videos.


RECAP
Good solid travel blog design for WordPress with logo included. Nothing too cheesy and easy to navigate for any users that come across it. Will leave the particulars up to the designers. Must also include clear English instructions on how to install the theme and make use of it. The winning project will become my property and is not to be used elsewhere except for screenshots in your portfolio. Any and all images included must be free to use and/or your creation as I do not want any copyright issues.

BONUS
If your entry is chosen and is exceptionally good ("blows my mind") I will be willing to submit a $100 bonus on top of the contest funds.

    If you have already been removed from the running, I have left you a private message. I have narrowed it down to 6 results. The following entries are what I have rated to be the best of the best: #22, #20, #14, #8, #4, #3. This is much more difficult than I thought it would be. Will try to have a winner notified shortly.

      I am looking for an actual WordPress site that can be integrated immediately. I am sorry but I cannot award the contest prize for anything less. If you can find someone willing to work with you, that would be your best option.

    Thank you for acknowleding you will make your final decision in two weeks six days. We panick sometimes since some contest holders have selected before the end of the contest. Thank you

      I feel the same way wingedove. A contest is a contest and if you don't specify the true length of the contest up front it can be detrimental to both the freelancer and the contest holder.

      I definitely enjoy your design. Good color scheme, good layout, good content. The top is awfully basic as you have already stated. Other than that, I would like to see some follow up pages or possibly a live preview to get a better feel for your design. A bit basic on the homepage but that may totally work for this design I would just need to see a bit more. Pretty solid design though. Good job.

      thanks for the feedback , this is all i wanted .will work on the design and try to establish an enhanced version of this .

      also , i will continue with a live site , once you approve a design , dont worry about wordpress ,. can implement any design on wordpress , so that should not be a concern

      I was unsure of the quality of work I would receive at first which is why I was skeptical to guarantee it. After seeing some freelancers here in action though I will most definitely guarantee the contest. Good luck.

    You are ambitious!
    I was daydreaming about something similar but it involved coffee tours and working my way through them.
    Anyway, I'll get cracking on a "mind blowing" design to post. In any event I hope you great success (even if it does come with a jealous glare). Josh

    hello David,
    I am interested in doing this project for you. I do understand that this will be a travel blog and it is kept in contest. Please do provide more information about your project requirement i mean the travel website will provide only informational data or there will be booking and other functionalities.
    If i provide you only the design of home page will that do ?

    Please try to understand it is very hard to work and if you need complete website then it is not possible but if you just need an idea then i can provide you that.
    here are some of my travel website that i done
    www.tripsontrips.com
    www.pathwaytoasia.com
    www.elandtravels.com

    I am ready to discuss this project and once you clear the doubts then only i will submit my entry.

    Best Wishes

      Yes, I am looking for an entire theme for WordPress. It will simply be informational with photos and stories and a few extra wordpress gadgets that I can add later on. I understand it is a large undertaking for the award listed so please only submit an entry if you deem it to be worth the prize money.
