I need a custom design created for a site I am working on. The site will have 2 layers of links. There will be 8-10 main links and then each one of those pages could have up to 5 links pertaining to that page. Those pages also may not have any extra links, so the design will have to look good with or without the second level of links.
The current header of the site is just the site name. This should be made to look good in your design. There is no current logo, if you would like to create one for the page, that is fine, but it is not required.
There should be a footer. This does not need to have much there. I will mainly just be adding text links and copyright info here.
There will be a login/logout link that will need to be included on the site as well. This can be in the main level of links or in a different spot on the page. That is up to you, but it must be obvious, easy to find, and look good with the design.
With my site, users get points for doing different tasks. So near the top of the page there needs to be a space for "Points: 1000000000".
There is also a link that will show up randomly on the site that says "Click here for free points". That can be a graphic or just a spot for text. but it will only be on the site for a short period of time and at random times, so the site needs to look good with or without it.
Users are also required to enter captchas one the site every hour. So every hour that the user is on the site a captcha will show up that the user must enter. This must show on every page.
With the design there should be a large blank area for content. This will change for each page and does not need to be designed by you. I will create each of the pages content through html/css.
The design needs to have a static width and a variable height. I currently have the width at 1000px, but it is up to you, as long as it is not too small to fit all the content and not too large where it won't fit on most computer screens.
I would like to receive a layered psd file that I can edit as needed. You do not have to do any slicing of the psd file or do any coding. I am just looking for a 1 page design, that will look good with or without the options I listed above.
All colors and design are up to you. I don't have anything specific in mind. But I would like it to be smooth and professional looking.
My budget for this is about $30. This should not take long for a good designer to create. Any bids much higher that this will be removed.
Please send me a pm with any questions and what your idea for the project is. I will then send you a link to the current site. It is very rough and still being built, but it will give you an idea of what I need.
In your pm, please do not post a lot of links to your past work, or mention irrelevant info about yourself. (I really don't care if you can do php, html, etc. when I am only looking for a design). I often get pms that are pages long, I will not respond to those.
Before choosing a winning bid, I would like to see a mock-up of what you're thinking. This can be extremely rough, I am not looking to steal your design, I am just wanting proof that you understand the project.
When creating the mock-up just your "First Link | Second Link" etc. for the links or use what is currently on the site with space to add a couple more.
