I have a vBulletin website that has been upgraded on a development server to version vBulletin [url removed, login to view]
A theme has already been designed and implemented (75% complete). I am not fully satisfied with a few of the features of the design (25%). I will provide you with a login on the development server to see what I am trying to explain. The theme does not flow together as one unique design. I need someone with excellent graphic skills and vBulletin development skills to redesigned the theme in certain areas of vBulletin to look and function as one unique theme. So that the entire theme flows together as it should. Currently it looks like bits and pieces were taken from two different themes, and then put together into one theme. This is not acceptable to me. The theme should look and function as ONE unique theme. It should be amazing to look at, and unique!
This is very Important! - I need a vBulletin developer with design skills because I also need you to setup a unique and attractive user browsing experience. So that the site flows together nicely as a community site for the market. This should look and function as a complete site. vBulletin Mods can be added to increase user commitment and activity if you see them as an added value. This site should resemble the leader that it is! This is the leading site in its field of expertise. So I need the site to be productive, unique, and continue to bring back users on a daily basis. You will be responsible for creating a way to integrate this into the theme/site through design and development. You will be responsible for making this site the BEST of the BEST in its niche market, while giving it the look & feel appropriate to its target audience.
Other things to do:
- Social Site Integration to promote threads, posts, articles, blogs, etc on facebook, twitter, google+, etc
- Google Adwords Integration/Setup
- A way to increase awareness for new registration for new guests
- Increase interactivity within the site via front page and sidebar (users online, recent shares, recent likes, recent threads, advertisement, etc.)
- Improve navigation so everything is easy to find (a lot of this has been done)
- SEO where possible (tag cloud placement, etc.)
- Mobile theme to resemble color layout, look & feel.
- I have a partial jQuery menu system in place and also a slider box that needs to be changed to a different animation. I can provide you with a link to a jQuery slide box that I would prefer in place of the current one.
This development / design job could lead to lots of future work if you want it. We are getting ready to integrate an online store, and chat, along with lots of future work if everything goes as planned. I am very loyal to my developers, if we have a good working relationship and you are talented, and pay close attention to detail in providing quality work.
Please PM me with some of your design work, portfolio, etc. especially vBulletin theme work. I will not be hiring anybody without some examples of their work. I need to know you can handle a unique, beautiful, and WOW design / site. I also need to know when you can get started, and a time estimate to complete the work.
This is not a job for an amateur developer / designer. The current theme itself is already a very unique design (CSS, jQuery, etc). I am looking to expand on the current design where the other designer / developer could not accelerate.
I look forward to your PM, Bid, and working with you!
