The Client: Me :-) An Actor / Voiceover artist working in television and radio.
The existing placeholder can be found at [url removed, login to view] - This is a masking URL. Your site design will be hosted at [url removed, login to view]
Please don't take any notice of the terrible graphics that are currently online at that address. I'd like to avoid all the cliches of microphones and broadcast ephemera in any new site designs please.
The Brief: To design a flash based classy, business like website with a funky edge. I'm looking for something unique, not just another template.
Target audience: 'Thirtysomething' media professionals.
The Aim of the site: To allow prospective clients to keep up to date with my career progress, sample my work and buy some of my audio cuts online.
1x Logo Design
1x Flash Intro
1x Biography Page
1x Latest News Page (It would also be nice to have a scrolling ticker in the flash design that links to this page.)
1x Audio Samples Page (Flash audio intergration - Must be easily updated or altered)
1x contacts page that includes an email contact form.
1x Store Front that would feature PayPal buttons and be compatible with my existing "PhpIpnMonitor" script. PayPal buttons designed in keeping with the site. This doesn't have to be grand, just simple to navigate and easily maintainable.
There needs to be the facility to easily add and remove extra pages as and when required. The site navigation must be easily expandable and contractable to accomodate these changes.
I'm looking for a creative, practical and adaptable design.
I'd welcome the opportunity of RSS intergration, maybe as a means of updating the content of certain areas of the site?
TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE: I would describe my experience and knowledge of websites, servers, computers etc as intermediate. I pick things up fast, so I'm open to a little learning if required. I can install PHP scripts, manage my server space, edit HTML etc.
If all goes well with this project I will be looking for at least three further website project designs, one of which will be an online store build.
If you're an experienced designer and you're happy to send me URLs that show working examples of your previous commissions then I'm really looking forward to working with you :-)
Please submit a realistic bid. If you have an exciting idea for this project and you can justify extra money, then show me what you've got and let's talk about it.
