I need a functional/structural clone of [url removed, login to view] (based on textpattern) for a private project.
Check the site to get an idea, as well as the [url removed, login to view] content management system on how it would be implemented, you will see that this is possible with only a minimum of actual code customisation.
So, basically, this will be a design-driven and not a development-driven job.
However, I will provide a wireframe of the start page and subpages for minor modifications to the structure.
Concerning the quality of the development work: I expect that a proper documentation, a regular project status update, and no quick and dirty "hacks" but a rock-solid and standards-conform frontend and a clean backend code will be provided.
Also, I want the design to look well. This means, in no way ripping off assets from [url removed, login to view] but create an own, unique style that should resemble [url removed, login to view] but should be slightly different (use red and black/dark grey as colors). This would also include creating a logo of the same color.
At the end of this project, I expect all assets to be delivered to me (code, psd source files, etc.)
We will agree upon a milestone/high level project plan and split up the payment according to the milestones (e.g. 20% upfront, rest in 20% splits as payment for every milestone). I also expect at least 2 review rounds for every milestone. If requests from my side are out of scope, we will treat this as a change request and negotiate additional budget needs on a per request basis.
this project will actually be the start of a long-term partnership, if everything goes as planned. i will need continuous creation of creative assets as well as site enhancements over a longer period of time (job board/classifieds, etc.)
