I have already one mock-up of one web-based application.
It is quite good - but my team wants to see other options as well.
I will hire 2 coders on this bid to make each of them 3 other mock-ups.
Those are mock-ups only, in jpeg. Whatever mock-up I select will be then translated in HTML, as per another bid.
The purpose of this bid is not to fine-tune, having a perfect model. It is only brainstorming on potential graphic models. The cost covers only the design of the mock-ups, not additional fine-tuning work. But I expect quality, original mock-ups - I shall reject any amateur work.
Be wild, original, think out-of-the-box, make 3 mock-ups of very different designs.
It is likely that I will select the winner of the mock-up for more design work.
I have set a deadline of 5 days, and the following milestones:
- In 48 hours after acceptance: first mock-up - if the work is really too amateur, I shall reject it.
- 48 hours after submission of the 1st mock-up: the 2 last ones.
- then one day for the 2 or 3 comments I may have.
I therefore recommend that you do not take this job if you are already over-busy.
It is a business application, however the audience will be 20+ years, people used to Facebook and other social sites. Therefore it has to be a right balance between flashy and serious.
