Ok so we have a website in the works that uses a magento platform for the shopping software.
We had a logo created here by someone on freelancer however it was not what we were looking for. We paid her and she went missing all of a sudden without completing the job so we are back looking for someone else.
I dont know if I can add a url here but if you look at [url removed, login to view] you will see the logo. The person before did a poor job in my opinion as it looks very unprofessional and slopped together.
THE LOGO DETAILS
What we want for the logo is the " W " to look as if is made out of water and the " F " look like its made out of fire. The flame guy looks great but would be even better if it had a more realistic texture to it to match the textures of the rest of the logo. We think it would be better without the pool of water underneath unless you feel you can improve it then that would be great. We would need the logo in several formats and sizes which will be given to you. We do have the PSD files from what she created if they would be helpful but a friend of our who has Photoshop said there was water marks that he tried to clean up but was hard to do so it looks like she may have also used some copy written material so we would prefer someone to start from scratch but use this as a guide. The background must be transparent in png and gif files and maybe some extra jpeg files to go with it.
THE BACKGROUND DETAILS
The background you see on the site is just something we pulled off the net to see what the site looks like with a background and does not belong to us so its not what we want to use. Our theme of the site is a half water half fire style theme to fit our branding. We would like someone who can creatively create a background using water and fire that will really make the site stand out. Personally I picture kind of a left side water and right side flames and they collide in the center with smoke coming out. Not to sure how it would look on the site though as we really want to try and keep it as clean looking as possible but with some kick to it so we need someone creative. And the file size needs to be kept really small to prevent load loading problems.
We would like a couple emblems for things such as "Free Shipping" "Ships in 24 hours" "1 year limited warranty" and "30day money back guarantee". Really need these emblems to have the wetflame feel to them and blend with the sites looks.
THE THEME FILES
This part should be very simple. We have the psd files for the theme so if you look at the website you will see the blue bars on the menus and footer of the page. These files are pulled from our theme and we need the colors of these bars to be altered to the wetflame theme so they all work together to give that feel of fire and water. The can remain solid with granite style unless you can do better but the color to work well with whatever background you come up with. Since we have the psd files it should be a simple re-rendering of colors and would work just fine.
Please do NOT overbid. We are working with a very limited budget and we have already been screwed over once by someone on here so our original budget for this has already been depleted so now we are dipping into other budgets to get this done.
The only real thing your creating from scratch is a background. Everything else has psd files or examples so this job is not as big as it looks so again please keep bids reasonable or they will be ignored!
NO MILESTONES WILL BE PAID UNTIL AT LEAST ONE ASPECT OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS IS COMPLETED
FOR INSTANCE WE CAN START WITH LOGO ONCE WE AGREE ON THE DESIGN OF THE LOGO WE CAN DO A MILESTONE AND MOVE ON TO BACKGROUND!
apparently a user by the name of ArtBrito is saying that you will not get paid... this is not the case AT ALL! This user slopped together some work that looked like garbage and I told him that wasnt even close to what we were looking for and ArtBrito said he wanted a milestone payment before revising what he had done. I said to ArtBrito that if he finishes at least one aspect of the project I would be happy to give him a milestone but I was not going to pay him for doing nothing we asked. He had the logo designed before he even bothered to message me and ask me what it is we were looking for and his logo was nothing like what we discussed in the description of the project. please ignore his rants as i have filed his comments as abuse.
