IMPORTANT NOTE: This bid is for a single first project, although we have a very large volume of work available. It is important to read the full description before bidding. Freelancers who do not read the entire description will not be considered because this position requires a unique, detail-oriented individual as specified here.
We do a large volume of slicing and we require a CSS slicer who is available every day, responds quickly, and *specializes* in CSS / XHTML only. If you do not work with CSS-slicing *full-time*, please do not bid. This is a potential for full-time work in CSS and we only consider people who work in CSS full-time, those who are reliable, 7-days a week.
CSS Design based on well-documented, layered PSD's. All supporting fonts, files, specifications are provided. The provider should know English well (we pay extra for providers who can communicate well).
All designs must be *pixel-perfect* paying close attention to margins, padding, font-sizes, leading (line-height), and other detailed elements. The CSS author must be familiar with cutting-and-pasting the screen-shots of the CSS website over the PSD, to proof and perfect the minor details of the CSS layout.
The candidate must be detail-oriented. If you do not specify that you are "detail oriented and guarantee pixel-perfect CSS layouts" in your bid, the bid will not be considered.
All code must be valid/standardized CSS/XHTML, without using tables or depricated HTML for layout. The Freelancer must be able to design 'strict', well-formed, very clean and readable CSS / XHTML.
Also have the ability to slice and export correctly / intelligently (e.g. knowing when to go to low-bit-depth GIF's v. JPG at which compression ratio, etc).
Must be an expert with DHTML to implement occasional animated components (sliding menus, etc). You should also mention this in your bid, to receive consideration.
You must be available to reply to emails or Instant Messages quickly. Our biggest complaint to-date, is the unreliable nature of providers we've worked with. Delivery time must be 1-2 days.
The price quoted is for a basic "micro site" or doorway pages. However, after this first project, we will structure a weekly price for ongoing, full-time work if this suits your interests.
