I need either a company or a programmer with graphic design prowess to design a website for my company. We are a small business that services repairs industrial cage & rack washing machines for large pharmaceutical research companies and hospitals. I recently fired a local web design firm based on their lack of capabilities and timeliness. Our company has a June 1st launch date for our redesign and I need a logo within two weeks. I understand the web design will take longer, especially with what I'm looking for.
Graphic designer with experience in Photoshop and Illustrator. Final logo in various formats to be used in web design, embroidery for clothing, and printed materials. Designer must have experience with logos and be able to provide examples of previous work. Stationary, business cards, and envelope designs included.
Front End (Public)
Designer should be able to provide examples of work. I am looking for a clean interface to provide easy access to potential customers of our business. Basic layout will include information about the company, services provided with basic costs, ability to contact for more information via a form, and contact info. VERY SIMPLE FRONT END DESIGN! We have nothing that is dynamic about our services and this design will rarely change. I want a simple, clean, attractive interface that is easy to navigate, quick to load, and conservatively professional. Details, color preferences, examples of websites desired, and more information will be provided to successful bidder.
Back End (Private Customer Area)
Customers should be able to log-in and view their details, access past invoices, view current payment status, make payments via credit card (optional), make requests for service or emergency repairs. PDFs will be uploaded by myself to the server once completed in QuickBooks Online. Customers should also be able to access past inspections of individual machines (See Inspections below). This data will be pulled from a MySQL database to be created by the designer. I will need to have admin access to maintain customer accounts. I have ideas on what I would like to see, but require assistance with technical feasibility of such a project. I am looking for a designer that will be able to provide solutions.
Back End (Inspections Database)
We utilize Intermec CN3 handhelds to perform our inspections via MS Windows Mobile Software. This data should be able to be synchronized to a MySQL database that the designer will design. I currently have intermediate software that will translate to the database. The designer will be responsible for setting up the database to match the information required to be stored based on past paper forms and designing the web interface to utilize and display this information. An example would be to display the inspection history for a cage washer with serial number X. The ability to create PDFs from the inspection data would be great. Feasible? Should be.
Payment & Terms:
Designer will receive 10% of the agreed cost upfront with the rest held in escrow until the completion of the project. Designer and I will agree to the terms and escrow service upon successful bid.
Rights to all generated work will be transfered to me based on the completion of the project. Designer will be able to use produced work as examples for future projects with my consent.
Communication must be prompt and designer must be willing to provide unlimited revisions until I am satisfied. My feedback will be detailed and prompt. I am exacting and demand excellence. Nothing less will be accepted but my compensation will match the quality of work produced.
Order of design work:
Website (Front End)
Website (Back End & Database)
Please provide details on your work and your qualifications. If you do not possess all of the required skills or your company cannot provide all of the services, please do not bid. The database design is not as urgent as the other items, but I am looking for quick turnaround. I wasted six weeks with a local company and I'm getting closer to our deadline. Future design work for the company is possible based on excellent products.
I only have a vision of what I want. I need a professional to provide me with the technical solution. Let's make this a great relationship! I look forward to the bids.
