This is the first of several very-similar projects, so we are seeking an ongoing relationship with a capable and talented designer, with good work ethics, good communications and a strong sense for aesthetics.
We are building a celebrity fansite, in WordPress (WP). The site is already up using a simple theme, and here is what we need:
#1) Create Wordpress theme:
Create custom graphics for the theme, using mostly pics that we provide, but possibly pics that you find on the web of that celeb. (such as in Google image search). Any pics that you find - write down the reference so that we can credit them with copyrights.
This is mostly a graphics job - the theme should look GOOD - very inviting to visitors. Technically speaking - there is not much to do here - just a simple WP theme with one right-side menu, enabling us to use it for Google AdWords (we have an adwords plugin) and/or for providing links to pages in a certain category only.
This last note means: Let's say we have pages categorized in CategA, CategB and CategC - we would like to be able to show in the right sidebar only links from the relevant category - CategA sites will show links from CategA, etc.
But that's all. Except for graphics which should be high-qual, everything else is simple (no need to code forums, shopping carts etc.)
#2) Create 2D ebook cover graphics:
Beside the site design - create a 2D png pic that could serve as the title page of an eBook we are writing.
Provide a copy of the pic with a different eBook name.
(So that's two pics - same graphics with different text)
#3) Create 3D ebook cover graphics:
Simple - just create 3D cover graphics from the pics created in #2 (again - the graphics will be the same - except for the ebook name)
That's all. And again - This is the first of several very-similar projects, so we are seeking an ongoing relationship with a capable and talented designer, with good work ethics, good communications and a strong sense for aesthetics.
If you are a firm (not an individual) please state whether you will be able to promise us that future projects will be performed with the same team as this one - we want to prevent cases where we do a great project now, but receive a bad team for future projects.
Showing examples/portfolios of quality site designs and/or ebook graphics is a PLUS.
*** ALSO - we will soon have a few projects for creating YouTube videos - If you have Video creation skills (creating slideshows and making a vid from them) and send us examples, that would be a definite PLUS. ***
Feel free to blast me with any questions you might have.
It seems that I wasn't clear about a few points:
1) Wordpress Template: Basically what we need is design (graphics) work, for a WP theme.
There is NO NEED to create any of the following: CMS, Squeeze page, Download page, ThankYou page, integration with PayPal etc.
2) eBook graphics: I attached examples of what I mean in "2D Graphics" and "3D GRaphics", etc.. Please look at these. Basically "2D" is just a picture which I can use as the 1st page of my ebook. "3D" is an "ebook cover" picture, based on the 2D image. See examples.
