1) Project Details:
5 HTML/CSS pages designed and coded for a new extreme sports website. The site will be a cross between wikipedia (i.e., user edited) and an existing concept of mine, the tricktionary
(i.e., a trick dictionary). The new site will cover all extreme sports, not just skateboarding.
I will supply detailed wireframes for all templates.
The site should be a blend of "web 2.0" styles (clean and neat with use of rounded edges, reflections and gradients where appropriate) and the "grungry" look of extreme sports magazines. I'm keen to make sure the site is as user friendly and readable as possible, while still carrying across the visual cues of the extreme sports culture.
In addition to the 5 templates (which will be very similar, by the way), the design also calls for some icon creation to represent the different categories of tricks - 9 for skateboarding, which is what we'll start with before considering other areas.
Once your designs have been approved by me I'd also like them to be coded using valid and semantic cross blowser compatible XHTML and CSS.
Up to $500 - state your price.
3) Payment method/details
To be agreed. In principle I'm willing to pay in installments once we reach certain milestones, e.g., deposit > design concepts > completed design > completed code > code tested and bugs fixed.
4) Additional Information
Some design work has already been carried out, in terms of generating concepts for the pages, and some of the icons are more or less completed.
It'd really help if you are familiar with the culture of the different extreme sports, or even practice them yourself.
I'm dealing with the databases and server side stuff on my own. However, there is a high chance that if the working relationship between us is good I'll also ask you to design and code the CMS that users will access to add to and edit the site.
In fact, I have many potential projects in the pipeline and the ideal situation as far as I'm concerned is to have one designer who I know and trust that will work on all my projects for me in the future as well.
