Craigslist Sydney Project Description We are a web design agency seeking to outsource a web design project to a cutting edge designer to create a professional custom Wordpress theme for a leadership and management development consultancy. The successful bidder will undertake the development of the template only, not the site build or adding content site build-out. The project is a complete redesign of an older, existing static html site including a move to Wordpress as the platform. The theme you produce will be used for static pages and as a CMS - no blog. Above all we are seeking a design that is minimal, cutting edge, elegant, professional and that will truly stand out as unique. There may also need to be a static, non Wordpress part of the site, which needs to look the same as the Wordpress part of the site. So you will develop static XHTML/CSS page templates created from the WP theme you develop. That simply means some stripping out the Worpdress theme code (Wordpress PHP loop code etc) to produce a static XHTML/CSS web page template replica of the WP theme.
