We are setting up an escort agency and need to establish a relationship with a graphic designer / web developer to build and brand our company and develop the first version of the site.
The project will be split into three stages with associated milestones at the completion of each:
1) Initial draft the corporate ID with logos and branding. This will require the submission of three draft logos and branding which will include banners, contact cards & website background image with recommendations of fonts etc. The final selection of corporate ID / logo must be scalable and may therefore require several different layouts of the same identity, however this does not need to be done in the draft stage.
2) Site mockup. The site will be developed with around 10 pages of content including Images, Text, Graphical Menuing system. Holder images will be provided by the supplier including, but not limited to, a "Recruiting" image with corporate branding. All images, other than the escort's themselves, will be provided by the supplier and licensed for unlimited re-use on any future marketing material. This site mockup may require iterations to perfect.
3) The final site development and publication, the site will require at this stage a feedback form for each escort with approval for publication, contact form for applications from prospective escorts and from clients and a members section authenticated with username & password to access additional escort details. Escort images will be displayed as thumbnails and zoomed on clicking. The site will also provide appropriate CSS layout / redirects to ensure the site is suitably displayed in two mobile device browsers (Android & iPhone). We intend to host the site on a Ubuntu Linux server and the supplier will provide content and support during the installation and deployment of this site. If the supplier would prefer to use .net or another Microsoft Technology please highlight this clearly in your response.
These three stages will run back to back.
Payment will be staged:
15% on completion of first milestone
30% on completion of second milestone
55% on completion of final milestone
We already have some sites that we like in mind and the winning bidder will need to be able to bring the best of these sites as inspiration towards our project. This will require someone able to do drawings of people in provocative and sexual ways without being too "In your face", so subtlety and creativity is key.
Ideally the winning bidder will also have worked in this domain before and will be able to provide references / sites that they have done in the past before the supplier selection process. They will also be proactive in developing the site content and wording, with relevant About info and page text etc. with a view to initial SEO requirements.
If this project goes well, we would be looking to establish a long term relationship with the supplier to perform long term SEO and further site development. Please highlight if you would be interested in this potential work in your response.
Thank you to everyone who has already placed a bid for this work. I will contacting my top three potential suppliers shortly to clarify their solutions and then making a selection before the end of this week. If there is anyone else wishing to place a bid on this work, I would request that, if possible, you try and submit it before the Thursday deadline as I would like to start things moving on this very quickly.
I would like to add a little additional detail to the definition of this work though to ensure it is clear what we are asking for:
The site must be designed using HTML 5 best practices and be backwardly compliant with the current release of all major browsers, we will test with Firefox, Chrome, IE, Safari and Opera. We will also test, as previously stated, with the Android Chrome browser and the iOS Safari browser. This is to say that at minimum the formatting must be done with CSS and NOT tables. The site must be compliant and functional with these browsers. For the avoidance of doubt, this acceptance testing will be performed by myself after installation on our server and before the completion of the final milestone.
The source code for all the site and scripts for building any database or installation will also be provided. This may be either open source software or custom built software. In the case of custom built software we will be provided with a license to modify and re-use this software. This is so that we may modify and change the functionality of the site at a later date either ourselves, with another third party, or by re-using the selected supplier.
Flash will not be used on the site.
If the site requires a content management system, the full code for this will also be provided inline with the above licensing requirement.
The URL for the sub categories will be path based and not completely dynamically built. This is with a view to aid SEO, For example:
* this is not implying that php must be used, this is just for example purposes.
All delivered code, scripts, markup etc. must be humanly readable and sensible using English for comments and variable names. This is that it must not be automatically generated by computer tools thus restricting future maintenance.
This site will contain adult material, although not fully nacked image of people, they are likely to be provocative, and will require the supplier to be able to work with and if required potentially supply, this type of content (Drawings perhaps in silhouet, banner images etc.). I have seen that some suppliers are from countries that have differing views on this type of content. It is the responsibility of the supplier to ensure that this will not be a problem with this prior to accepting the work.
We hope these above elaborations on the requirements do not come as a surprise and look forward to working with one of you on this project very shortly.
