I'm looking for a gun developer with a good visual design sense to redesign my travel site Homepage to the exact mockup attached. My current theme is Litemag by Bluthemes, and I need a developer experienced in it's codebase. To inspect, you'll require my Wordpress login details, as it's currently hidden behind a landing page at www.thefrugalgypsy.net.
As this will be the second posting of this project due to issues with previous Freelancers, I need to clarify the following list of conditions before considering any bids.
Please read & understand these conditions CAREFULLY before bidding:
1. NO bids over $250AU considered - I’m on a budget, and this should be relatively simple for the experienced coder/developer.
2. NO "copy & paste" bids considered - please read & address the project criteria in your bid description. Bidders who don’t do this will be ignored or deleted. I’ll be reading EVERY bid posted, regardless of it's position.
3. MUST be able to visually match mockup on screen to a 98%+ standard. Provided mockup is an EXACT template, NOT just a guide. NO milestones will be released until completed components are a 98%+ VISUAL, and BUG-FREE interactive match - NO EXCEPTIONS!
4. MUST be able to read & write a HIGH standard of English - written communication can be difficult, but even moreso with a language barrier. I need you to understand EVERYTHING I type, and vice versa.
5. MUST be experienced in my theme code. PLEASE don't waste my time (or yours) if you’re not - I’ll give you my WP Admin access so you can carefully inspect my code before officially accepting the project.
6. MUST be available for a WhatsApp voice call before starting project - I need you to be 100% CLEAR on everything before commencing, and text can be easily misunderstood. A voice call should eliminate any possible confusions you may have.
7. MUST be completed within 7 Days, MAXIMUM!
