There will be two sites for this project. The site quality requirement is high. Details for each are listed below. The main colors for both sites are grey, white and black. For the drupal content/blogging site, a highlight of fuschia color (the fashion site’s most popular color) will be used.
The sites will feel luxury, high quality and fashionable. Check out the sample sites I give below and you will have a very good sense of what I am looking for.
Social media features (facebook, twitter, RSS etc.) and newsletter signups are required on both sites. Logos, biz card and favorite icon designs for both sites as well. We’ll discuss on the details.
Note that you are bidding on the creation of two websites, not on particular set of features of these websites. Any features desired for the websites are part of the project bidding and shouldn't be considered as additional charges.
1. Fashion Content/Blogging Site: e.g. [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]
A Drupal content site with photos, videos and social media functions. The sample site explains well what I am looking for. While [url removed, login to view] doesn’t have the right format for a content site, the colors and overall feel is what I am looking for.
A few more insights are:
*If you are familiar with Juicy Couture ([url removed, login to view]) kind of style (a little royal, medieval etc.) from their store designs and fashion photos, it is something I am looking for as well.
*The embroidery background pattern of [url removed, login to view] is nice and popular for fashion site as well.
*Caricature of fashion women is popular for fashion site as well, see socialdiva.com.
*See [url removed, login to view] for the curvy fonts.
2. Celebrity Site: e.g. [url removed, login to view]
This will be a flash site, basically for a model/actress, see how the sample site is show casing photos on the home page. This is exactly what I am looking for, to have big photos on the home page. Image and video viewing functions are probably the most important development part of the site. The menu links will be such as: home, about, photos, videos, blog, contact etc.
Once a provider is chosen, a protocol is desired with 5 business days (or whatever days ranged discussed). If by then we don't feel the service provider can provide something of similar quality to the sample sites, the hiring will be ended and we'll choose the next best service provider as we intend to bring the site out soon and can't afford to waste any time.
