I am a student/artist who wishes to get my work online in a portfolio to be used as both a gallery of my work and a future tool for getting work as a designer. Note: I am currently a consultant serving as a Project Manager for custom software development, so I expect to be a reasonable and knowledgable customer. The platform on which the site is hosted is Linux running PHP. I wish to store all my project information in an XML file for ease of maintenance (sample attached and commented). This XML file is to be parsed on the server to display filtered/sorted results to the user. I have the layout of the XML file created though you will need to fill in additional test data. I am open to changing the structure of the XML if you feel it will be easier to maintain. The XML contains all the information on assignments, projects as well as filenames representing the thumbnails and full-size images of my work to be used on the website. I also wish to utilize CSS extensively for maximum design flexibility in order for me to easily change the design of my site in the future. Refer to [url removed, login to view] as an example of the flexibility I am looking for. The initial design is extremely plain (black text, white background, etc.). I will do my own designing later utilizing the extensive CSS hooks you provide. I can provide a sample XML file and screen mock-ups to use during development though as mentioned you will need to enhance the XML with dummy data and create dummy images. You vendor will be responsible for all the scripting to adequately parse the XML file in order to display the filtered and sorted results. You will also be responsible for hooking up CSS to allow the desired customization. I wish for this site to work well for the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and Safari. Since there is not anything too dynamic on here, I expect this shouldn't be a problem. Attached is a Word document with more detailed requirements as well as the shell of the XML file to be used.
