For web designers: mock up my web page.
I am looking for someone to create a web mockup that graphically improves an existing web page which has a very simple look/feel. A snapshot of this web page is included. This new mockup should give the page a "professional" look/feel that is also sophisticated and modern.
The selected worker for this project may have follow-on work to work with the developers to implement the page, as well as design the remaining pages of this web app.
Attached is a snapshot of the existing implementation of a simple web page. Note there is not much in terms of the contents, it is mostly just a header, layout, footer, and some tabs. This project should take this existing page and make it look better.
The resulting mockup should be show the look/feel of the page, including colors, images, gradients, fonts, etc. The output of this project should be a graphics file (e.g., PNG, JPG, GIF, or other format of choice) that shows the single page that can be opened on Windows in Paint.
The actual implementation of this web application is not part of this project. I already have developers who can implement it. However, I need someone with an artistic eye who can lay out the look/feel of the graphics part of the page.
This web app is an enterprise web app used in-house by technical staff. Hence it must have a "professional" look/feel, but also look sophisticated and modern. It is not a consumer web app and should not have the artsy feel often seen in today's Web 2.0 pages, such as including cartoon images, etc.
Finally, I am also looking for input for anything missing. For example, if a web app should have a "Help" link, feel free to add it. Or if it should be specific horizontal size, feel free specify it.
In general, I need someone who can guide the look/feel of my web app, and this project will determine if we continue working together for the rest of my web app.
