Hi there! I am graphic designer that lacks web design skills - boo! So I broke down and realized I need help. So here's the deal - I started building my own site with squarespace, and it was going ok...but I've kind of hit a wall. And I've seen so many amazing sites with squarespace, even friends of mine who are designers have amazing sites with squarespace....and I just can't figure out how they did it. I have come to the conclusion that without knowing css and html to really make it exciting and special.... the site is very limiting in terms of what I need to showcase, which right now is collateral and packaging from my current job.
Project scope: I don't think this is a "from scratch" project, but perhaps I need someone who can take the bare bones and partial design direction I have already started and make it look more professional and add some flare. I'm pretty down to earth, easy to work with and open to ideas and direction. Perhaps this is just a template you create and I can plug in my own information and pictures? Let's make it as easy and stress free as possible for both parties :)
Why do I need this: I have quite a few jobs on my list that I would like to apply for sooner rather than later, which is why I am in need of this site as soon as possible. Being a designer myself I understand how quick things can and can't happen, so I know I am proposing a tough deadline.
If you think this type of gig is for you, let me know!
I wish I had thousands to give - but I didn't win the powerball, so my budget is tight.
But, I have tons of contacts in the design world, so whoever does decide to take this on will have to be comfortable with me putting them on a pedestal wherever I go and whenever I speak of them.
Thank you and have a great day!
