Project Description

Hello -

I need someone to create an online, interactive custom card design tool. The tool will allow people to create their own designs for a card including background, text, and images. The feature requirements for the card front and back are listed below, along with examples of similar websites.

Background selectable from an existing list or uploaded image
Add text fields with editable size, color, and placement
Add one text date (ie 03/18/2009) and one text cost (ie $10) field which each have editable size, color, and placement
Uploadable image(s) with adjustable size and placement

The back will be split up in a grid.
The number of grid boxes is selectable (1 to ~32) and automatically scale to fit the space
Each box has 1 image, either selected from pre-determined list, or uploaded, which has editable size and can be left or right aligned (within the grid)
Each box has three (optional) text fields, which automatically wrap within the blank space

Adminstrative backend:
Simple method of uploading new background images. Should be simple but does not have to be pretty.

Can be Flash or Javascript/AJAX based
Ties into existing PHP infrastructure
Final result is saved as high-resolution (~300 pixels/inch) JPG or high-resolution PDF
Cross-browser compatible

Interface requirements:
Drag-and-drop layout functionality
"what you see is what you get" design
Warning when closing or navigating away from page


Similar to:
[url removed, login to view]
Aspects that are good:
Smooth interface
"what you see is what you get" design
Text editor is good and shows fonts/colors as they are changed
Elements are directly movable and resizable with mouse
Text elements can still be changed after they are added
This is a good model to follow for the front of the card
We do not need ability to add unlimited text / images, a pre-set number is fine
Do not need checkout integrated
Do not need customization of existing templates

[url removed, login to view]
(click on "Advanced Editing - only $[url removed, login to view]!")
Aspects that are good:
Pre-set number of text fields
Allows resizing and movement of text, uploading images, etc
This is a possible model to follow for the back of the card

[url removed, login to view];cid=1509&track=pd
Aspects that are good:
Easy resize, movement of elements
Size panel allows easy size, font, and color adjustment of elements


You must be serious and professional, with good frequent communication and the ability to clearly understand english requirements. We will need to have very frequent updates along the way to make sure design decisions are made correctly. I am available 16 hours each day to answer questions you may have.

I would like the project to be completed within 6 weeks time. Upon awarding the project to you, please submit a timeline of milestones and project plan that you plan to follow.

Please supply your quote, time estimate, and links to any projects you have done that are similar or related.

Thank you
