Require a 'family' of developments covering Logo, eBay listing template, eBay Shop and website. From a design perspective, I require clean and professional looking pages with a 'graphic design' look and feel - something that looks better and different from all the other cloned websites out there. 'wow factor' (good design, not over used Flash or animated Gifs!)
eBay Listing Template & Shop
In addition to a very slick looking listing template, I require well-structured and good quality hand-coded HTML with comments. In my experience, eBay listing templates are ok but don't help much with regard to producing nice looking content within the listing. I would be interested in suggestions that help me efficiently produce excellent looking contents to an eBay listing, not just the template framework. However, even if that solution is just a few good examples, that will be fine. Not much needs to be said about the eBay shop but it needs to be in the same family design/theme as the listing and the website.
Will be e-commerce ready, shopping cart, credit card payments, and possibly a function to automatically update stock levels using some kind of data transfer from a warehouse. The backend can consist of a mySQL database and a password protected /Admin page for view/add/edit/delete functions. Not looking for one of the same old boring oz-commerse based websites. I don't mind if oz-commerce exists under the covers but the developer must be able to do a good job of covering it up!
Obviously, more detail is required and I will provide this. At this time I am looking for designers/developers who can show me an excellent and real portfolio together with reasonable outline quotes. During the design stage of the Logo/listing/shop/website, I would expect to see drafts available for viewing and the developer should feel happy to accept my feedback and factor that back into the design until I am happy with it.
