Hi, I need to develop an online designer interface similar to [url removed, login to view]
I currently have a very basic but effective text editor on my website [url removed, login to view] that allows someone to type some text in, set the size / font and then buy it, but I need to develop the online purchasing across all our products.
Therefore the final code will be used in a couple of ways.
i) Straight forward sign making - i.e. A blank size needs to be set e.g. 800mm x 600mm with the option to do pretty much what logomaker does, select from some established designs (or possibly upload their own(?)) and add some text and then checkout, ordering 1 or more of their chosen design on a designated material.
Therefore the code must be capable of pulling images and fonts from a DB table. I need to be able to categorise the images, work out the price based upon the size of the sign and images used (I already have equations for this), as well as the material the sign is to be supplied on if required at all.
ii) Instead of setting a blank sign size, they would pull up a background image from a DB to work over, i.e. a vehicle outline so they could design in scale either with text or other graphical images from our DB or even upload their own(?)
All our images can be supplied in a vector format, the end user will need to be able to change the colour of the background image, i.e. if it was a vehicle outline of VW Golf, they should be able to make the car red or green or black etc and then design over the top of that.
Ideally I would like their design sent to me as vectors in scale so all we have to do is produce the sign, and not redraw it again.
I have quite a lot of experience working with DBs and will therefore probably manage all the data side of the website, I need a programmer to make the links from this DB into the flash(?) design interface, and make the clever stuff like logo designer work.
You will probably need to PM me for more info, however please bear in mind I would prefer to work with someone in the UK so we can speak on the phone if necessary however email is fine and I have completed projects before just via email.
The budget for this job is not huge however I appreciate it is quite a lot of work unless you have something already we can tweak.
I am also prepeared to do this in stages if it means we can get code online and working quickly, so get stage 1 done and then look at stage 2 later.
I will also need to see examples of your work before I place the job, so please none of this short reply... I am ready PM or... we have 10,000 people ready to work on your project.
Instead please send me a link to something you have made along with time scales.
Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you.
