Project Description

**I need to design a drupal based blog which discusses online casinos in Italian language. Work includes graphical design, Drupal customization and installation and any other PHP work involved in the process.**


## Deliverables

**I need to design a drupal based blog which discusses online casinos in Italian language. Work includes graphical design, Drupal customization and installation and any other PHP work involved in the process.**

## Bidder professional requirements:

1. Proven website design experience, preferably with portals. Gaming / Gambling portals design experience is a huge advantage.
2. Experience with drupal customization and setup.


## Website Structure

Site will be comprised of the following elements:


* Homepage: Contains the following elements:
1. **Header.**
2. **Welcome message (a 30 word website description & welcome paragraph).**
3. **3 Casino review box which contain a medium size software lobby thumbnail + 50 word description. (see [url removed, login to view]'s homepage for an example)**
4. **5 Blog post abstracts: first 30-50 words of the most recent blog posts.**
5. **Up to 4 120x600, 125x125, 468x60 or 250x250 banners can be used as space fillers on the sides or in the middle of the page; It's the designer's decision.**
6. **Footer.
**
* ****Header**:
A compact graphical horizontal banner which sends out a ?€œgambling portal?€ message (80 pixel tall max). Below the graphical banner is a horizontal menu bar with links to inner category pages. (look at [[url removed, login to view]][1]'s header as an example). Menu bar links are indentical on all webpages and should be editable from the Drupal interface.**
* ****Footer:** An external small HTML file, embedded into each page with SSI or other technique. Will be edited by me later (and will contain several text links and copyright messages. See [url removed, login to view]'s footer as an example).**
* **Post page. Contains the blog post's text + header + footer + banner space filler if necessary. Also contains breadcrumbs.**
* **Category page: Contains a list of all blog posts which belong to a specific category (?€œcasino games?€, ?€œcasino strategy?€ etc). A graphical element (e.g. 125x125 or 120x90 banner) should symbolize the category's meaning, e.g. a roulette table photo for the ?€œcasino games?€ category.**


## **Design note and examples**

**Blog design should convey gambling, mainly in the header. White background for all posts is preferable but not mandatory.**

**Positive design examples:**

* **[[url removed, login to view]][2] ? clean design, basic elements included. Header needs a bit heavier graphics.**
* **[[url removed, login to view]][1] ?€" slightly heavy design but conveys gambling very well. Color scheme should be different, but header has good structure.**
* **[[url removed, login to view]][3] - good , clean design. Small but distinguishable header.**

**Negative examples: [[url removed, login to view]][4] ?€" dark design, too heavy.**


## **Additional Site Features**

**Search box that enables searching within blog posts**

## **CMS Setup**

1. **CMS should allow editing & managing of the following elements:**
* **blog posts.**
* **Categories (+ graphical element as discussed in section 5 of Website Elements).**
2. **SEO friendly URLs. CRITICAL. (url format: [url removed, login to view])**


## **Work order and schedule:**

1. **JPG or GIF file with homepage design will be sent for approval.**
2. **Once approved, CMS customization process will begin.**
3. **Once bidder is selected, project should be completed within 7 business days.**
