PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BEFORE BIDDING.
Here's the link to the site design that I'd like to copy exactly: [url removed, login to view] - as you can see, it's a very clean, white template that's pretty straightforward in how it works (no complicated animations, etc.).
I'm looking for someone to design a dynamic portfolio for me that has a flash front-end but uses data from external xml files to populate content. My current portfolio is setup this way and I very much like the flexibility offered by only having to update XML content without having to make changes to the flash design itself.
I'm really looking for someone who can design something AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to the link I provided above...again, I'd really like to mimic how that portfolio is designed and layed out as closely as possible - I am NOT looking for fresh designs or complicated animations and scripts (in a way, this should make the project much easier since I've provided an already working demo of exactly what it is that I want). Everything from the design to how the data is arranged, as well as whatever is used to optimize the flash file's size on the page (I use something like this on my currect site now that will automatically make the flash fill the screen, no matter the viewers' resolutions).
None of the content on this site belongs to me - you will need to be able to somehow manually access/download it in order to be able to populate the duplicate version with the same content. I will obviously not be keeping this content on the website - I only require it so that I will know the dimensions and attributes of each element.
Again, it needs to be done in Flash but be update-able by XML.
I posted this project a few months back and got BURNED by a deadbeat service provider - this will be my second attempt at using Freelancer as an employer and I do NOT want another bad experience.
I also will only select candidates who speak GOOD ENGLISH (native English speakers only, please) as communication throughout the course of this project is VERY important to me.
DO NOT BID IF YOU CANNOT RESPOND TO EMAIL WITHIN 24 HOURS - As an employer, I check my email CONSTANTLY and will be able to answer any questions or inquiries almost immediately - please do not bid if you are not able to extend the same courtesy.
I am looking for someone with the skills necessary to perform this task, that will also allow me to make an UNLIMITED number of revisions until I am pleased with the final product - it's not worth my time or money AT ALL if the end result isn't what I want. Revisions must also not have any affect on payment amount - what you bid is what you get paid, as long as I'm happy with the final project.
If there is anything you are unclear about, please send me a message and I will do my best to explain it further.
I know what this project is worth having already paid someone to do it for me once before, and I also know that it's significantly easier because you'll be able to see a full working example of exactly what I want.
Payment will be via the Escrow/Milestone feature built into Freelancer for both my AND your protection.
DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO DO ANY OF THE THINGS I HAVE MENTIONED.
I hope that whoever I select for this project the second time around will be much better than the individual I chose last time who made lots of promises and never delivered on any of them.
