Growing Green Communities (growing-green-communities.com) is a building (house) envelope materials producer (we make bricks and panels for the walls of housings and buildings). We have 2 main products (bricks and panels) but our bricks are the focus for the time being.
To start, I need a website design.
Once I have a design I like, I will select a winner of this competition who will get the contract for doing the remainder of the work base on their design and their quoted price.
To be clear, this first phase is just for a design and is a fixed price of $250 Cdn. The winner of the competition will be determined base on the quality of the design (flow, images, layout, etc.) and what you quote for the price to complete the site.
I have additional steps in mind for the future including a specialized ordering tool but those will be part of future projects.
We already have a logo (see our website, higher resolution available if required).
Our target audience is both end consumers (people wanting a home built) and companies that build homes.
If you're going to use a CMS then I don't want it super complicated to make changes to the template. I can code in HTML/PHP/MySQL in my sleep (I've been doing it for 25 years) but I don't want to have to figure out the internals of a CMS. In fact, long before CMSs were common I started using page_top.inc and page_bot.inc files so I could change the site design in 1 place and update the entire site. (I'm not suggesting you have to use that method, just giving an example of my personal experience)
Other than a page for the description of the product (including eventually documentation about the product) I'll need a home page, an about us page, contact us page, and galleries that will be implemented over time for both of our products and that will include both videos and pictures.
I don't currently have a lot of photos for you to work with so use public domain/open source images.
As mentioned, the initial design is a fixed price competition for $250 Cdn. In your competition submission please include details (including the price) for the entire project. The site should be able to function on any domain so I can test it on one of my domains that isn't active and then move it to the live domain later. You won't be given FTP access to my site so you will need to create it on your own server or take a screen capture for me to see your design and then zip/tar it up to send it to me.
Lastly, if I like your design (or a part of it) but you are not the ultimate winner, my past approach has been to negotiate a price for the use of the part of your design I like and then provide that to the winner to incorporate into their overall design. So there is a potential for 0 - 3 additional amounts that I may pay to contributors.
