First off this project is to work 1 on 1 with a freelance designer. I don't want any firms bidding or any "BIG" teams unless I work one on one with the designer.
You must be an expert in creating Wordpress Themes and designing using Web 2.0 fonts and custom buttons and graphics.
I am ready to start this project today, I will give more details of the project here below.
I have two Blogs that are fully designed and coded.
* I have ideas on improving the background colors of the themes and certain buttons and usability aspects and colors.
The Main Tasks you will do:
TECH BLOG Edits:
* Make Background Brighter (For example the background has green in it that is too bland, it should be a little brighter and more web 2.0.
* Better placement of Social Media Buttons and certain aspects of Blog Post. Better Font for titles of Blog Post and for the actual written Blog Post.
*Improve Logo & Header Design (Make more Web 2.0, Better Fonts,Brighter, More Fluid and connected, we want it to be visually striking)
*Improve Colors within Sidebar and make sidebar more engaging, again use fonts that match the revised fonts of the blog post.
*Subpages - They are Empty Right now, A couple images and graphics will suffice, mainly for the About Page and the Contact Page. So thats two pages that mainly need editing and perhaps the Advertising Page (have a graphic or two showing the size of the advertising boxes and the email contact info.
Personal Blog (On Internet Marketing) Edits:
* More Intuitive Background Combination (Right now the background colors don't match well enough for me and I think the background would be better with a lighter grey background that has texture in it.
* Blog Post (Needs different Design for the Date and the Main photo for the blog Post, it doesn't catch the eye and I feel it could be better designed.
*NAV - I feel it could look better and I have some ideas to improve it.
*Use different social plugin for the blog posts.
*Make Opt-In Form cleaner and more stand out (Should match ecover and really stand out)
*Services Page - Needs to be more Stand Out, can use Font improvements (Larger) and Larger Buttons (Each service has a graphic button next to it)
Contact Page - I really want this changed and more of a Web 2.0 Clear feel to it by using better fonts and better placement of buttons and writing. I have some examples of some better Contact Page Designs.
*Setup RSS FEEDS (Feedburner or other)
*Portfolio Page - Fix Up so it looks better.
Websites will be shown to the Winner.
Budget is around $150 total for the work, its mostly design work but it involves replacing certain aspects of the old design.
