What I need accomplished:
I need a Flash website containing the basic pages - Introduction, Our story, Videos, Trusted Vendors and Contact. This is merely the foundation of a growing website as we figure out what exactly we need and/or want. I currently have Flash 8 so the site needs to be created in Flash 8 (not CS3).
The main web page will remain the same with only certain fields changing as buttons are clicked. As the uploaded image displays, the color strip will change colors depending on the page showing and the image of the couple will change to 'Our Story', a Video or other... The shown 'swirls' will be animated upon button clicks (I've already done this animation) and/or they will change opacity or disappear altogether. Our logo near the daisy in the bottom left needs to have an introductory animation. I would like the 'Registration circle' behind the lotus flower to show a countdown with the countdown shadow rotating just before the lotus flower 'grows' out to a static image. I would like this same animation for the 'pre-loading' of the website as in the % loaded feature when visitors hit the site initially.
What I already have versus what the provider will build:
I am currently building the layout of the website in a layered Photoshop file. All or most graphics will be designed. I will do my best to label each layer as to dictate which layer goes with which web page. I simply need the Flash mechanics placed behind the graphics. I am also creating motion graphics (swirls) in .flv format that we wish to make use of when buttons are clicked and the pages change from one to the next.
Other context/requirements that providers should know:
Our business is all about motion (videos) so the designer must know how to deal with videos and the site needs to reflect motion. Currently, there will only be one demo video to be displayed however the Video page will need to be set up so that we can add videos at a later date.
The site needs to consider future growth (continued development) and the site should be built for SEO. We are now offering each of our brides a custom personalized wedding website as part of our services, therefore depending on how well communication moves between us and the provider, continued Flash web design will result.
