Project Description

IMPORTANT: You must be familliar with Bones Starter Theme for WordPress which uses LESS and Sass for CSS. [url removed, login to view] it is also a mobile-first theme designed to load quickly and this is critical for my site.

Requirements:
- modify the Bones theme to match my existing site theme at [url removed, login to view] (does not have to match perfectly, this is an opportunity to improve the design)
- rename the Bones theme and its folder to "ebr" (I want the theme to be branded to my site, Electric Bike Review)
- do not add any javascripts or external tools to the theme, keep it light weight, less fancy is better, fast loading and clean!

The goal of this project is to make my website run faster and load quicker. The theme I am currently using works well and is responsive but has too many javascript libraries, extraneous CSS and other unnecessary features built in. Rather than fix the existing theme, I would like to create a similar one using Bones.

The theme does not have to match exactly, the goal is to get it looking similar and Improve the design. It doesn't need any shortcodes, rounded corners or fading features or sliders for example. Keep it super simple and light weight.

Other considerations:
- I want to put the navigation bar on the left instead of right. Also, it should extend up next to the title vs. below where it currently sits [url removed, login to view]
- The brands page at [url removed, login to view] should get pagination to make it load faster
- Each article I post has four pictures and a YouTube video, it would be nice to have a way to integrate these that looked good and scaled well. I've been avoiding lightboxes to keep from adding extra javascript, this site does a nice job loading images on the page in a sort of browser [url removed, login to view] but I don't need them to auto-scroll through. I'd just like to keep people on the page and give them a way to view the larger images without adding any plugins or a lot of extra code that could slow things down. Open to your input.
- I'm open to other improvement ideas as well, some great Bones based themes include:
-- [url removed, login to view] (I like how they set their navigation up at the top)
-- [url removed, login to view] (I like her font weights and colors, please consider when designing the theme)

This job is really part design and part coding. Please be prepared to deliver a great product that will work exceptionally well for my site. I will treat you well, pay you well and appreciate your effort.

Thanks,
Court
