Project Description

We publish Miniguide, a print guide to Barcelona with articles, events and reviews in arts & culture, shopping, dining, clubbing, etc. We use a custom CMS but are interested in transitioning to a new, open-source platform. We have developed screen shots for what we would like to see in the new website (full screen + mobile). We have an SEO consultant with whom you would coordinate.

Content for new web:

- See [url removed, login to view]

- Articles, events and location reviews (restaurants, shops, bars, etc.)

- Integration with Google maps

- Ability to display certain content as a function of other content (e.g. display reviews of restaurants located near an event when displaying event listing, etc.)


- Open-source technologies

- Responsive design that adapts to mobile + tablet

- Emphasis on speed (fast page load, lightweight, etc.)

- HTML5 and CSS3 with graceful degradation for older browsers

- Markups W3C validate

- SEO-friendly URLs

- Incorporate Google Analytics

- Use of Web fonts

- Ability to social media share any content

- Ability to generate (or send) newsletter

- Ability to schedule posts to Facebook and Twitter

- Ability to export from database into InDesign (e.g. XML)

- Ability for users to connect with Facebook or Twitter and submit new content as well as comment on existing content

- Migration of all existing content to new site with permanent redirects

Secondary phase, addition of modules to handle:

- CRM to coordinate selling activity / contact with new potential clients and existing clients

- Accounting functions (issue and email invoices automatically to clients, track receivables, etc.)

- Extranet so clients can access invoices, update information (phone number, opening hours, etc.), etc.

Data entry into the front-end system should be as fast as possible (AngelList does a good job). Our philosophy in regards to design is minimal and would like to see this carried through into the coding.

Please indicate with your proposal:

- Which CMS platform would you use.

- Which database technology would be used. We are open to NoSQL.

- What technology you would use to implement web fonts.

- Your recommendation regarding hosting.

Thank you.
