I have... a website that was a) never actually finished & b) is madly (4 - 5 years) out of date.
I want... a fresh clean layout possibly with a logo change/rework since ours seems to work well on printed material but seems hard to incorporate into a web based design unless I go ultra minimalist ... which I don't (mostly) want to.
I DON'T want.... a reworked template or a clone of a site that does the same thing as I do, anyone pushes a template my way and I release the wombats !
The hard bit is probably that we are a family/noob friendly store and so want an easy to use website that does not confuse... that said I also want a constant presence of our product categories etc, in other words whilst I don't want the site to simply look like yet another e-commerce parts site ... I also do but keeping a friendly outlook, not just `here's what we sell buy it` most of our business is service/repair/custom builds etc and that needs to show up as well though component sales are becoming increasingly important.
I only currently need the design/layout and should initially be mostly boring XHTML , when the site is looking good and working correctly I will then be looking at making it a bit more dynamic with ajax for quick loads of product info etc.
I don't need any server side coding etc our current in-store POS/inventory will be feeding the website, all I need is the design, I dont want PSD files etc I would want an XHTML template that I would then break up to work with our templating system
If it makes any difference at this point our company colours are orange and black, not the `is it yellow or orange` state of our current website.
our website (no laughing please) is http://www.centurioncomputers.com.au ,
an example competitor is www dot ple dot com dot au not that I like it or anything just an example www dot mwave dot com dot au is a better looking example but still too generic for my liking.
2) payment can be made via paypal/direct deposit etc and we will need an invoice of some description, whats it worth ? I don`t know , the right design of course is priceless, a logo that we can use in our other marketing gets a free wombat thrown in.
Since I hate design/HTML layouts this would be an ongoing project even after initial site completion, I don't work for free nor do I expect anyone else to though I like to get what I pay for.
Any one interested in looking at something like this please PM me !!
