we have a small website, containing a total of 4 (four) pages. We would like this site to be redesigned; this briefing contains information of what we have in mind.
We suggest that you CAREFULLY READ ALL INFORMATION provided on this page before bidding.
We will start off with a short description of our group of people:
Every year in december a festival takes place in the Netherlands. The festival is focused on children but is also widely celebrated by elder people.
The festival is about a very old man ("Sinterklaas") who gives presents to children and is based on an ancient Christian story. To take care of this job the old man is accompanied by several helpers ("Zwarte Pieten").
In december, when temperature over here is very low, not much work takes place and we dress up like the old man ("Sinterklaas") and his helpers ("zwarte pieten"). Other people then invite us to celebrate the festival with them.
Our website is made for that service. Besides the front page there is a small agenda on it, some photographs of us dressed up, and a page with information how to contact us.
The website we now use is old and needs a total makeover. The project includes both designing and creating. The old website is located here: hulpsinterklaas[dot]com.
The new website will contain the following pages: Home, Contact, Agenda, Foto's. It is a static website, but we change the text on it from time to time, so the text parts should not be made using Flash.
The festival is a nice and funny happening, and that's what the site should look like.
Less then 100% is not good enough; no unfixed stuff and so on. Deliver a good working and pleasantly looking website, and we will deliver you more work.
We will select the winning bidder by how you reply to the "guidelines for bidding" section below.
Guidelines for the design (technical):
- it should be a basic frame with changing content. Little changes to the frame for each page would be nice.
- the frame should be centered and between 800 and 1024 px wide max.
- scrolling up and down is O.K., but not sideways
- do not use pop ups
- The page should be made in HTML/CSS and Flash (optional). Flash is fine, but only for links and animations; parts with text should be easily changable and thus in HTML.
Guidelines for the design (optical):
- the website must be easy to use: links to subpages should be well visible.
- the background color will be WHITE
- the design should be "funky", but not too much
- some keywords regarding the design: playing, artfull, fresh,
- some websites we think are nice: [url removed, login to view] (the artwork; the site itself is a little to unclear)
- you can make a new logo: the letters are HULPSINTERKLAAS (or HULP SINSTERKLAAS). You can use either small letters or capitals, whatever you think suits better
- there is a zipfolder with pictures you can use; changing the sizes, combining pictures etc. is fine. Cutting out the dolls from the rest of the photographs would be nice.
- photopage should be static with the photographs on it: no thumbnails or other animated stuff, just the photos on it.
- you can make your own artwork. Use pictures from the internet to inspire you, but do not copy them.
- let us know you read this carefully, mention the following in your pm: iunderstandthe importance of reading
What we DO NOT want you to do:
- anything regarding search engine optimalisation
- change anything in the agenda; we keep this HTML-based and without any automisation
- change the processes: visitors just see our email address and telephone number. We want no other methods to contact us, and no forms or what so ever.
- use any other pictures then the ones provided by us; it would be great if you create animations for the website, but do not copy anything from the internet.
- change the format of the photographs on the photopage
Guidelines for bidding (provide us the following information):
- examples of what you have done/ a portfolio
- your schedule: when will you start and finish the project
- your price
- which techniques you will use: Flash, CSS, HTML, etc.
- a small example or picture of how your design will look like.
Some general directions:
- keep us updated about your progress daily; we prefer you to upload your work to a server, so we can easily view it
WHEN YOU ARE THE WINNING BIDDER, WE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A ZIP FOLDER CONTAINING BETTER QUALITY PICTURES YOU CAN USE, TEXT FILES AND SOME PHOTOS WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE ON OUR SITE.
We need somebody creative: show us your creativity when bidding!
