The start up will be offering custom web, desktop, network, and mobile applications for various common business situations. Our initial target consumer base will be existing small business and the design must be visually appealing to that audience without being overwhelming.
This phase is the home page layout and design, and will consist of the following stages:
- wireframe(if you don't know what a wireframe is don't bother bidding)
- fonts and color scheme
- psd/xcf design
- header: should contain the logo and slogan place holder and account login/logout elements
- slide show for featured items(projects,clients,products,etc)
- widgets for various elements(news items, blogs, etc) one or two square and one taller rectangle element.
The psd/xcf design should include all of the elements from the wireframe and the fonts/color scheme. This includes the logo and a generic slogan. The widgets should have a "header" or "title" bar and should have moderately rounded edges.
The most important aspect of your bid will be your previous work. I want to see previous work that demonstrates a working understanding of slick, modern(not annoying web2.0 huge fonts/bright colors), and visually appealing designs that are not overwhelming. Our main goal is to show off our products and or solutions, and your design should not take away from that.
Your bid needs to include the cost and a time estimate for each stage of this phase. If you should require any stock photos for the end design just provide me with a link to purchase them. Please also explain the basic process by which you will be choosing the font/color scheme.
Your location does not matter as long as you do excellent work. If you are a team/company please let me know the overall size of your team and how many of your developers will be working on this project.
Each stage must be approved before moving on to the next stage. I may or may not choose the wining developer or team for the additional phases depending on the quality of their work on this one. I would like to award all of the phases to the same developer(s), but I may be willing to take bids on the individual stages. If you are only bidding on one stage please explain why.
