Description

Experience Level: Expert
I am looking to create a interactive website with an integrated blog for my new start up volunteering/charity organisation. I am currently a student with a limited budget.

There option I am considering :

XHTML/CSS/HTML etc... site with CMS/Open Source with an integrated magazine style blog with a community of bloggers and users (perhaps through Drupal or something similar?)

What I am looking for:

6 pages approx

Blog:

Integrated blog (magazine style) that has space for advertising - managed through CMS - the blog is the most important feature so we are looking for someone with a flare for design

Community - we are seeking to create a community of contributors and a list of people through facebook that are able to connect and are visible to other users -
Allow for commenting linked to facebook, e.g. like buttons. I have been told that there are various websites that can create logon/sign ups through Drupal etc...

Report Abuse - this would be essential for a contact form for any abusive posts/videos uploaded

Integration with facebook connect to allow people to comment from facebook and other social networking sites (e.g. twitter)

Other features:

Paypal Donation - (minimal e-commerce)

Forum/Community Board - this is a forum that can also allow comments for our various topic areas

What will the site be used for:

Articles on topic areas that appeal to youth (university/college)
Space for advertising for our sponsors and project funders
Upload of videos and sound files
A go to site for our volunteers for finding out about project information

Target Audience

Youth (16-25) University & College
Company sponsors - needs to be somewhat aesthetically pleasing for our range of sponsors

Company Image:

We pride ourselves on our grassroots personal approach and these are some of the words that come to mind when thinking about our company:

• Energetic
• Youth
• Personal
• Vibrant
• Colourful
• Unique
• Global
• Person to Person approach
• Welcoming
• Bold
• Clever
• Edgy
• One of a kind
• Strength
• Fuelled

Budget:

I have a limited budget but I am willing to accept and consider all offers given the nature of our business and the fact we are non profit which I hope you all will understand.

We are more inclined to go with the most competitive offers given the type of work, however we are looking for designers and developers with a proven record in this type of work for the charity/ngo sector and also those with creative design skills.

Designer:

Must have skills in Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator - and those who can code with Drupal and other CMS driven systems in addition to the standard HTML/XHTML/CSS etc...
