An intelligent, well thought out update/re-design for our current website (built using Squarespace 5) with a better looking, punchy, cleaner redesign - using a squarespace 6 backbone. We are a UK based not-for-profit organisation, working off the grid, in Nepal and Ghana. Competent bids between 250<450 USD are preferred. Considerable additional work is available for the right candidate.
We need a simple but powerful interface that we can use and update ourselves, regularly - after the redesign - despite not being web programmers. We built the original site using SP5, and understand how it works. We can migrate all the existing content from SP5 to SP6 automatically - but SP6 is a more powerful tool, allowing much improved look and feel. We can provide new content & media as needed.
An experienced web-design background, a solid understanding of how to convey a clear message, a very good working knowledge of SP6 and custom CSS are all essential, as well as some expertise in SEO to help us improve incoming traffic. We'll want to see the best examples of your recent design work - showing sites which successfully deliver a clear narrative.
An interest in development work, education, working off the grid, and adventure is a bonus, though not essential. We seek talented, inspiring people and aim to form on-going relationships, as we launch several new and exciting sites through winter 2013/2014. We're also building the first community owned rural ISP in a remote part of the Himalayas currently, so there is scope for further involvement with our organisation on many levels.
We look forward to working with you.
