Project Description

Do you agree with the following quote?


“I regard web design as just the next evolution in design. Sure there are new challenges and media limitations in web design but the solution is to apply good design principles using the customer's requirements and working around the limitations and where necessary pushing the limitations in order to get the right design.”

If you do work by those principles, you may be the webdesigner I am looking for!

As a Fashion Designer, currently living in Belgium, I am in great need for an attractive and efficient online portfolio to expand my job opportunities, particularly abroad.

I have worked extensively on the concept, the graphics and the contents of my website, in order to be fully prepared when hiring a web designer to program it. I also managed to raise a relatively comfortable budget.

The website I designed has a complex navigation system. It is mainly an online portfolio, which I wish to upgrade into an innovative interactive website (I already have a domain).

At this point, it is not necessary to describe the whole concept in detail, I will just give you some basics, and examples, so you can give me an estimation of your fee.

BASIC DESCRIPTION

The whole navigation system is based on zooming. When you click on a link/image, you zoom in or out on it. This is the main animation which has to be developed to run smoothly.
Examples:
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
(NB: I do not require any 3D effects)

Graphics (frames, fonts etc) involved in the zooming are all AI CS3 vector files, designed with gradients, and TTF (my own font). I wish to later include raster images as backgrounds. Therefore, a CMS system would be ideal, allowing me to change the background images, and add/change/remove links, as my portfolio is a work in progress.

I have prepared an intro which would also be based on zoom effects, this time exclusively with raster images.

The remaining animation work will be in details such as lighting effects on links, cursor effects, preloader….
Examples of the type/amount of extra interactive animation I would like in the background, on links [url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]

Attached, you have the sitemap, so you can see the current number of pages involved.

Questions/concerns

Have you already worked with artists on their websites/portfolios?
I have developed a precise concept and graphics, I would like to know about your working method/fee in such a case. I have determined which effects and design I want, but as I am not a webdesigner, I do not know much about programming.

What I am sure of, is that the webdesigner I would need has to be on the cutting edge of programming and webdesign, and have all the new technologies programs, and skills integrated. Indeed, I need someone who would be able to program the following websites, if all graphics, concepts and explanations were provided:
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]


As a Fashion/Graphic designer, I wish to remain in control of the layout/style, but it goes without saying that I would really appreciate a webdesigner’s point of view. Which means that I would like you to tell me if an idea doesn’t work, if it’s boring/overused or if you have an idea how we could improve it. All modifications on the graphics/new graphics etc will be my job. So you shouldn’t have to work on graphics at all, just programming and animation, and advising me.

OBLIGATORY
-Fullscreen website
-CMS (for Portfolio and background images)
-SEO (if website is Flash based)
-make images/fonts same size for all screen resolutions-site must fill whole screen

-back buttons, bookmark precise content of page, and scrolling MUST WORK
-has to work the same with every browser
-Itinerarary

-buttons/links must be highly sensitive
-sound effects & song on background

TO BE DISCUSSED LATER ON
-option for browser window=necessary?
-site map=necessary?
-preloader=necessary?
-skip intro= necessary?
-nr of visits (for me)
-guestbook/forum
-font color changeable via CMS=possible?
-Music on/off?

You must of course also have a great command of the English language (or French), or communication will not be possible between us!

Your availability is essential, as I would like to have my website completed before 2010, so if you are fully booked, or going on holidays, respecting this deadline won’t be possible.

I hope this brief explanation was explicit enough for you to be able to give me a price range, and I will be looking forward to your reaction!

Kind regards
