PLEASE READ ENTIRE BID REQUEST BEFORE BIDDING! We are a small web design company based in the U.S. that has too many projects than it can handle right now, so we are looking to outsource a lot of our projects. SO, YOU MUST BE WILLING TO DO REPEAT BUSINESS! We need someone working on this project who can both design AND code. We are hoping that, if you do quality work for this job, we will be able to provide you with a steady flow of projects in the future. We are looking for someone who is: 1.) Highly skilled in technical aspects of coding. 2.) Creative and can produce visually stunning web sites. 3.) Punctual, and can complete a job with high quality work in a short period of time. 4.) Able to communicate quickly and effectively with our company. We need a logo and a website designed for a web and graphic design company: "Sure Site Design." Our color palette is: blue, silver/gray, white, and MAYBE orange. The logo should include text, as well as graphics that will come to stand as a symbol of the company. The website should include the following pages: 1.) "Home" page 2.) Portfolio Gallery 3.) "About Us" page 4.) "Services" page 5.) "Contact Us" page, with contact form and newsletter subscription. The website needs to be visually stunning and very professional. It should incorporate the logo and reinforce the company brand. We would like to see any ideas for incorporating FLASH into the site, as we think this would add to the overall visual appeal of the site. Please keep in mind that, if your bid is accepted, there is a HUGE opportunity for future design and coding work with our company. We have many potential clients right now, and a highly skilled sales staff. Please include mockups and ideas for the project in your bid. NO TEMPLATE WORK! All designs must be your original work, and of the highest quality. Thanks for looking, and good luck with your bids! Best, iDesign

We need to be able to easily update the site with new video clips, text, and photos.
