This project is for the design and development of a photo blog with a few additional pages/functional areas and some simple integration with 3rd party sites like flickr.com.
The blog built using the wordpress platform which will serve as an ongoing text and image documentation of my photo shoots. In blog posts, I will embed some preview images and a link to the images on flickr.com. Aside from the basic blog, which will serve as the home page, I will need:
- Portfolio gallery ï¿½ can be a flash pop up window that appears above the blog (would love if we could fade out the actual blog site when this window is open or some similar smooth transition between the two.) The gallery will be my portfolio items, in categories. I would like the galleries and images within them to be driven by a CMS. Presentation of my images in an isolated, professional setting at the optimal resolution is essential.
- About page ï¿½ can be in the same window as the blog, just a new HTML page. Some static images and text. Possibly simple integration with a flickr gallery that would open in a new window.
- Contact page ï¿½ can be in the same window as the blog, just a new HTML page with a simple form on it (thank you page will also need to be created)
Ideally, I would like to work with someone that has experience working with professional photographers, but this is not required. What is required is a strong portfolio with clean, high end designs. No templates.
The design that I want is VERY simple and minimalist. It will be all white, with a single, basic font (possibly Ariel) for all text and even the logo, which will be all text and up to you to ï¿½designï¿½. I attached my business card, which will be the basis for the design. For the logo, think ï¿½American Apparelï¿½.
I'd like a basic mock up prior to selecting a provider.
Feel free to contact me with relevant questions and mock ups.
