Description

Experience Level: Expert
We are a software company who are looking for a long-term partner for providing Web Site design. We have a number of sites that require new or modified designs. This section covers the general skills that we are looking for, and then further

on we shall describe the specific project that we are inviting you to bid for.

INTRODUCTION
------------------------------
The provider will be proficient in Web design and CSS. It is important that the provider is capable of more than just good design, but is able to translate design into CSS so that we are able to develop Web applications from the deliverables

without having to modify the CSS or convert the styling ourselves.

The CSS should implement good content / presentation separation so that styles and colours can easily be modified in future without having to restructure the whole page. For great examples of content & presentation separation see

www.csszengarden.com; but then again - you are already probably aware of it!

We do not need the implementation of whole Web sites. We are looking for logo design, front page design, page structure, colours & schemes, and perhaps one or two styles second-level pages. We have the skills in implementing those

deliverables across whole sites.

In summary, we are looking for a partner that can:

+ Provide good Web site designs
+ Deliver them as XHTML pages and images with good structured CSS
+ Document the colour schemes, fonts used and branding rules
+ Provide good logo, button or images design
~ Optionally, be capable of providing Flash animations
~ Optionally, provide copywriting

PROJECT FOR TENDER
--------------------------------
Now onto the tender. We are developing a site for a new company called Elastic Computing. This company specialises in Cloud Computing and offers scalable computing resources in the style of Amazon EC2. (The term \"Elastic Computing\"

describes the ability to request more computing resources on demand, and release them when they are no longer required).

All we have at the moment is a company name. We are looking for a logo design that represents the company; (initial thoughts are to show clouds which may be a bit cliché, or more appropriately to indicate some elasticity in the company name).

But the logo should be simple as it will be used in business cards and printed matter as well as the Internet.

A front page Web design is required. The Front page should adhere to the requirements mentioned above.

DELIVERABLES
-------------------------

- Logo design
- Web site Front page design
- Appropriate images (and / or a Flash animation)
- Colours and schemes
- Delivered as XHTML, images, (Flash) and CSS
- Colour and brand guidelines

Initially 2 or 3 basic designs should be provided. They will then be refined in conjunction with our feedback over a short period. We anticipate that as few as 2 or 3 iterations should be required if the initial designs are good enough.

PLEASE PROVIDE FOR THE BID
-----------------------------------------
Please indicate the pricing for the above project requirements.
Also option the price of further logo or button design if required at a later date, and / or an hourly or daily rate.
Please provide an estimate timescale of completion once commissioned.

SELECTION CRITERIA
----------------------------
Cost will have a factor in the selection criteria.
Good design and quality will have a big influence on the winning bidder.
Companies with a portfolio and references would have an advantage.
