Are you proficient with Illustrator, CSS, php, and Joomla! customization including the creation of custom Joomla templates and custom modules? If yes, then we welcome your bid. If not, this project is probably not for you. :)
Can you commit to a date and deliver when you say you will, regardless of local holidays, cultural observances or personal priorities? If yes, then we welcome your bid. If not, this project is not for you. :)
Can you commit to providing an email update AT LEAST ONCE EVERY DAY, regardless of THE AMOUNT progress made? (This should be easy!) If yes, then we welcome your bid. If not, this project is definitely not for you. :)
Lastly, are you an obsessive/compulsive perfectionist? Great! You may be qualified for this project! :)
In brief, we need:
- Adobe Illustrator files to be converted to a Joomla! Template
- Joomla installation and build out of the website (~5 pages)
* Two (2) pages include simple web forms
* One page includes a Simple Viewer Gallery
- Need Search Engine Friendly page names
- Search Engine Friendly Titles and Tags
- Joomla installation and build out a second website that is nearly identical to the first
*** PLEASE NOTE: Our budget cannot exceed $350 ***
Please Note: You will need Illustrator CS2 in order to access the original graphics. We want the website graphics to be created from the original *.ai files so that quality is preserved.
We need this website [url removed, login to view] converted to Joomla. Currently the website is simply a sliced up Illustrator (*.ai) file. There is essentially no real text which hurts search engine opportunities.
We will supply you with the originally Illustrator files (CS2 *.ai files) which have all of the graphics needed to create the template.
VERY IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT: We want to keep all the same copy and keep the EXACT SAME graphic design and layout. Let me be clear about this, as much as possible, we want all of the content (text, images, form elements, graphics, white space, etc.) in the exact same positions and the same spacing between everything. I realize the you can't use Myriad Pro as your font so some of the text will not look or wrap exactly in the same spot. But apart from the font, you can control the size of the font, the space between lines, and the space between other graphic elements. Therefore, we would expect that the website would be primarily a CSS layout and be tableless or near tableless. We do not want a nightmare of nested tables. Please take a close look at the current design, because we want the subtle gradient background. And we want the nice drop shadow coming off the bottom and right sides of the main body. Got it? :) We want you to do what is necessary to make all of the text REAL text except in places where it makes since to use a graphic, like the logo, or a special button, etc. See the PDF below for clarification.
The good news is that the website is pretty simple and is only five pages; Home, Services, Gallery, RFQ and Contact. The gallery uses Simple Viewer. We want to continue to use that unless you have a better suggestion. In addition to the Illustrator files we will provide you with the entire current website including the gallery content.
Once you recreate the [url removed, login to view] website we want you to create an exact duplicate website at yourvehiclegraphics.com. It will have a similar logo but with [url removed, login to view] instead of wrapyourvehicle.com. It will also have a different phone number, address and the forms will be routed to a different email address.
We will provide all of the info (Illustrator files, existing website files, information unique to the second site, server access information, etc.) once the project is awarded.
Of course, we would like the project to be completed as soon as possible. However, YOU tell us how much time you need. Be honest. Give yourself plenty of time and then please keep your commitment.
Please note that this project has been revised and relisted because the previous provider was unable to deliver the project in a timely manner. We are willing to place payment into GAF Escrow once full functionality of the deliverable is demonstrated on your server. And we will release that payment once the deliverable is installed and fully functional on our server. If you don't like these terms, then please don't bid. We can't afford another bad experience.
I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to consider our project. I realize it takes time. Sorry if i am unable to respond to everyone individually. I look forward to your bid.
