NOTE: This is purely a design, front-end UI project, all server-side programming and database functionality is being created by our development team.
We have immediate need for a Template/UI designer to create a mock-up and then a CSS/XHTML Template for our new prototype Web Site. The design needs to be clean, simple, easy to use, have web 2.0 aesthetics with a look and feel that will appeal to the Japanese doujin market.
I need the designer to be-able to communicated with me in English on IM and email. It would be fantastic to have a designer who has had experience in the area of Japanese Manga and Anime.
* Creative and Innovative
* Strong Photoshop/Design (Web Design / UI)
* Strong XHTML + CSS
I need the graphic design and Web Site template made for a Japanese Doujin self publishing digital marketplace/community. The server side code and database is being created separately so this is simply the Graphics and front-endUI (XHTML, CSS and a little JS). Here is a list of the fundamental requirements:
1. - 2 Initial main graphical design mock-up's produced to allow a choice on how to progress. (Once a choice has been made Step 2 will need to be completed)
The design needs to be original and we will retain full copyright. We would like to also have the source PSD/AI files etc along with any other project assets.
This is a prototype site, there will be a fairly tight deadline for the deliverables, there maybe other work on this project when the service is expanded into full production. We also have other projects so there will be the opportunity to work with us in the future on Japanese and English Web Sites/App's.
Full details of design requirements and basic mock-up conceptual layouts will be provided to qualified bidders after a signed NDA.
Example Sites (for reference)
* [url removed, login to view] (some similar social functionality and a nice clean site)
* [url removed, login to view] (Japanese user video site, we like the simple minimal aspect, the hand drawn style of the graphics appeals to doujin)
