I need a logo for a site called "Two Mice and a Strawberry." I'm also looking to integrate this logo into a Joomla template of your design. ***Please bid on either or both of the two parts listed below.***
* *Preference is given to sellers who can present a portfolio of past work, especially logos and Joomla templates.*
* ****Many bids so far have failed to indicate which of the two parts they're bidding for. Please bid on either or both of the two parts listed below.***
*Preference is given to sellers who can present a portfolio of past work, especially logos and Joomla templates.*
The two parts of this project are:
**A) Logo Design**
1. This is a logo for a web site titled "Two Mice and a Strawberry". You can see it's present form at [url removed, login to view]
2. The logo has a graphical part and a text part. The text part is the title of the site: "Two Mice and a Strawberry"
3. The graphical part is an image one black mouse, one white mouse, and one red strawberry.
4. This logo will be used on statinery, business cards, and on the web site, which will have a design similar to this: [url removed, login to view]
4. The red color should be one of the colors in this image: [url removed, login to view]
5. I'm imagining the mice somehow head-to-tail with each other, encircling the strawberry in a way that recalls the classic "yin-yang" symbol (see [url removed, login to view]), but if that doesn't work, I'm open to other suggestions.
6. The site name, and thus the logo, are based on this story: [url removed, login to view]
7. I do not have strong ideas about stylistic choices: realistic vs. stylized, detailed vs. simple, etc. I would like to be able to choose from between three and five mockups.
8. Mostly this logo will be used on light backgrounds.
Editable source files with transparent background (is this reasonable? Please tell me what you can offer. PSD, Illustrator, etc?)
B) Joomla Template Design**
This web site will need a new design. I'm currently considering the Joomla template available here: [url removed, login to view] . That template is selling now for $55, and I would need to customize it myself. If you think you can save me some money here, I'm interested.
1. I'm not especially interested in the stock photos being used on the site. If you have some stock photos that are related to graphic design (other than generic smiling business people), I might be interested in those, but otherwise I will make this work without graphics.
2. I'm not interested in the flash slideshow. I will find something else to fill that space.
3. Everything else, I'm interested in.
4. If any particular element seems difficult to mimic, please mention it in your bid. If you can offer a decent-looking replacement, that's great, and if not, I'll probably be able to live without it.
A complete Joomla template:
- compatible with Joomla 1.5.x,
- including all images, stylesheets, etc,. etc.,
- ready to install using Joomla's administrative interface,
- which has similar look, colors, and quality to the sample template mentioned above.

Hi, Thanks for your bid. Did you included an indication of WHICH of the TWO parts of the job you're bidding on? I've received 21 bids so far, and 19 of them failed to mention this point. If that's you, please review your bid and add a comment with that rather important bit of information. Otherwise, I'm assuming you haven't read the spec, and a bid that's not based on the spec is really no bid at all. Thanks!
