Hi there. I'm looking for a TOP designer who can pull off great design with great "tricks".. I'm looking for examples of YOUR work (not templates!) I have seen too many templates - and when more than one bidder submits the same template as their own work - that's a good clue! :0) 1. I have a corporate website with 20+ pages.. That's easy to understand. 2. The site is hosted at a place where there is no database/sql services.. so you have to be creative. 3. Also the site pulls from other sites so they have to blend in to the corporate site somehow.. For example, we have a support ticket system hosted on another site but that has to be fitted to the corporate site and still hosted on its own domain. Same with 5 other sites.. All hosted on their own domain names but fitted with the new corporate look to look like it belongs.. 4. I'm not looking for a template or a boring design.. I need someone who can show me their tricks.. I'm looking for a designer who has very cool design sense and tricks up their sleeves (but still keep the corporate professionalism).. :0) That's hard to do (you must show examples on the bid) 5. What I would like is this: ----> First, we brainstorm together design ideas and trick ideas for the site and that's a "bid" amount and release amount for your time.. Tricks mean stuff like special effects, graphics that move when scrolled over, clever menu tricks, clever graphics, rollover effects... ---->Second, we'll start the design process and get that approved.. ---->Third, we'll code it and test the site out fully. One of the pages requires that you pull the API from the shopping cart that we use. The shopping cart will need to be fitted to the new site. Then, at the end of every month - we'll have a "maintenance" agreement where you add, subtract, create new graphics and tricks for the site as we find out what works and what does not. Maintenance is for 6 months.
1. I'll release funds on the brainstorming and tricks session that we do.. That should take a week. 2. I'll release the final funds after step 3 is complete.. I'm very generous. 3. I'll need a "maintenance" bid as well. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows? (depending on the nature? of the deliverables):
a)? For web sites or? other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software? installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
