I’m building a fan site about a certain celebrity, and would like to create a new design for it. I want it to give a professional, young and “cool” feeling, that will appeal to the mostly young (12-17) fans of this celeb. For this I will need the following [in square brackets are examples of what I mean, from a previous project]:
1) Page graphics for website [[url removed, login to view]]
Graphics will focus on a few photos of the celebrity, arranged to fit together on the page. I can provide the photos, or if you prefer you can find others on the web (you probably have a better artistic eye than I). In some cases very basic photoshopping (removing the celebrity away from the background) might be needed. The page header area will contain the name of the fansite.
2) Image for cover page of Ebooks (8.5 x 11) [[url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] - see how these are based on the same graphic as #1]
Based on the graphics used for the website.
Actually I will need this saved three (3) times with different text (one copy using name of main ebook, other copies using names of bonus ebooks)
3) 3-D "Ebook Cover" style graphics (based on the same graphics as in #2):
a) of the main ebook (regular ebook design) [ [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]]
b) of the 1st bonus ebook (spiral ebook design) [[url removed, login to view]]
c) of the 2nd bonus ebook (spiral ebook design) [same as b]
d) of the DVD (DVD-and-box design) [[url removed, login to view]]
e) of a "membership card" [something like this [url removed, login to view]]
f) "Bundle graphics" of all the above (a-e) together [[url removed, login to view] (example is without the card - i didn't offer membership on that project)]
Note that the [examples] come to show what type of files I need, but graphic design for the celebrity fan-site should look completely different!
It shall all look "Clean, young and “cool”.
Page design shall be 2-column, with total width of 990px and right column of 240px. Content text area shall be black text on white background.
I will provide the name of the celebrity, along with a batch of photos.
I will receive full rights for the designs (but of course rights to the photos shall remain with their respective owners).
Deliverables shall include besides the website page and image files (in jpg/png/gif encoding), also the original/raw data (such as psd files)
A: WEBSITE DESIGN:
I prefer that you provide the website design also as a real webpage which I can copy, not just as psd+jpg/png etc.
Please state whether you can provide a "real page", or your offer contains the webpage only as PSD etc graphics which I will have to fully insert into a webpage.
B: VERY PRESSED ON TIME:
I previously awarded this project to anther provider which delivered some graphics then disappeared from [url removed, login to view] altogether. This caused a delay so I am very pressed on time. Please provide a REALISTIC timeframe that you can work to, but unless you can give this project priority and complete it soon - please do not bid.
C: ONGOING RELATIONSHIP:
This should be the first of several very-similar projects, so I am seeking an ongoing relationship with a capable and talented designer, with good work ethics and good communications.
