I have a client who has a current web site written in SHTML that needs to be updated with a fresh coat of paint. The site is old. The client has an updated logo and an updated color scheme – we need to have the site rebuilt with an updated look and feel and a much cleaner interface. More CSS, less images for navigation... etc. (the current site sucks)
The current site looks very mid-1990's and needs to be updated. The new site is going to fit inside of a PHP engine we use in house. The engine uses smarty templates so all we need written is the master / home page (i.e. the container). As well as the "contents" of the sub pages. We are also adding a few files which the end-users can download (Example PDF files -- very mild adjustments). Mainly just need a fancy new look.
All pages must be XHTML (STRICT) (and they must validate) and lots of excellent CSS usage.
Smarty and PHP experience is a plus.
Here is the current site: [url removed, login to view]
Please submit a few examples which you have designed and coded -- we will be reviewing the source.
