We are seeking a comprehensive proposal for the development of a Memorials type website. This new site should set the standard in allowing anyone to create a perpetual online memorial for a cherished love one. The new site should be a robust and scalable website that can grow and handle the heavy volume of graphics, video and bandwidth that will be required to support 1 million users within 10 years.
We are looking to work with a highly creative and talented team in the development of a unique and feature-rich Memorial Website. We are not attempting to merely clone a site, but to take existing features to a new level of usability and integration. We will be open to additive features from the production team. All responding teams must have a strong portfolio of developing complex and unique websites from idea inception to full deployment. All bid responses must be reflective of your ability to bring programming, graphic design and content management together into an integrated product.
The leading memorial sites include the following: Virtual-Memorials [dot] com, Memory-Of [dot] com, and Last-Memories [dot] com. Please make sure that you complete an in-depth study of what you believe the inherit strengths and weaknesses of each site. Your study should include setting up an account at each site to gain an understanding of each site's functionality and user control panels. As part of your bid, you will need to be able to respond specifically, in writing, on your design approach and an how you plan on taking the best of these sites to the next level.
Your bids will not be evaluated on price alone, although it will be a factor. Your bid response will also be evaluated on your experience with complex website projects, your ideas for the website and other factors. The top responses will be required to sign an NDA to receive our Website Specification. We will interview the top 2-3 responses to select the successful bidder. The successful bidder will be required to sign a Website Design Contract.
