I need a web designer to design and implement a very professional website.
The site is for a start up company looking to establish an online presence.
The website should be to the highest standards of design excellence. To bid on this project, please ensure you have at lease 3 more other websites you've designed in the past, where i can review the quality of your work.
There is minimal programming requirement needed. The only programming needed will be in the implementation of a file upload functionality on one of the pages, as well as having a search functionality on the site.
On the home page, there will be some sort of flash animation/ image slide show to bring the site to life in a professional manner
It is VERY important that once the website is delivered, it is deployed in such a way that it can be managed via a CMS tool, so future changes to the site can be made by admin staff of the Company. I.e. the designer will be needed to set up the CMS functionality and show me how to use it (after the site is ready).
> An example of a site in mind is: [url removed, login to view] however,
> what i want needs to be 10x better from a design perspective. It should be more aloong the lines of [url removed, login to view] or any other more professionally designed site.
I need a designer who is very creative, so by accepting this project, you will probably come back to me with a few page designs/styles/ideas to approve (creativity), and once this is done, we can get down to the pages. The total number of pages will be less than 20. Most of the pages will be static HTML pages, the exceptions are the search functionality and the "job oppourtunities" page where file upload (CV) functinality is needed.
I will supply most of the content for the site e.g. Logo, text, and images, however i will neeed the designer to be able to "sharpen up" images (perhaps in photoshop) where necessary.
It is imoprtant that the site is an HTML site, and not a flash site however there will be some flash animation on the home page as i've already alluded to. In terms of colour shemes, it should be along the lines of the logo (which i will provide) colours, but i will make a call on this once you've presented to me you design ideas.
In terms of timescales, i'd like the site to be ready 4 weeks from the day the projected is accepted (so plenty of time).
To recap, the most important element of this project is the DESIGN, DESIGN EXCELLENCE (though there is a need for minimal programming for the search functionality and CV upload section)... the successful bidder will have a track record of this and might be an expert with design tools such as photoshop etc.
I look forward to hearing from you.
