Hello, I would need a good designer to improve the design of a small shopping comparison engine, and work closely with us after that as we build up the site.
To start, there are 4 pages to redesign: the main page, the search result page, a product detail page, plus create a template for the future member area.
The site already exists, but the design is so-so. We would like to keep the overall look-and-feel (keep the color scheme, the logo and overall layout) but make the pages look more crisp and professional.
We are building up the site so they will be many more pages to create after this project, if the outcome is right. We are a funded startup.
The proposed design will need to be submitted as a mockup first (photoshop or whatever you want to use) for approval, at least partially, before we escrow. Then ideally you'll deliver the final product as CSS within a sample page (we will do the integration of your CSS & HTML changes in the software ourselves), although we can do the HTML/CSS ourselves out of your mockup if this works better for you (just indicate that your bid is only for the mockup, and does not include the CSS).
In you bid, also indicate your hourly rate passed the initial projects (as mentioned, there will be plenty more pages to create over the next 12 month for this site). Also send a couple of previous work you've done preferable for a search engine / comparison shopping site / ecommerce site.
