What I need or require:
A clean, cool and very very user friendly web design.
What I already have versus what the provider will deliver:
I have: I already have a specification that describes the functionality of the website. It is in essence, a social networking website with a lot of add-ons.
I need: to design the detailed visuals as well as the detailed flow of the website.
Other context/requirements that providers will need to know:
The contractor will need to be a brilliant and creative designer who can take a functional specification and,
a) convert it into a a very cool, appealing, easy to use and appealing web design;
b) convert it into a work-flow (wireframe) and show how the screens will appear and flow, the menu system and navigation through the normal process as well as the 'error' process.
Specific expertise/background that I am seeking:
Design: Fantastic creativity, needs to bring the ‘wow’ and ‘cool’ factors to the design, a good eye for intuitive and user-friendly design, simplicity, uncluttered, clean.
Please note: The portfolio of past work submitted must show an eye for exceptional and cool user friendly design AND the ability to design a really user friendly wireframe.
Wireframe: Navigation intuitive and simple, all functional requirements fulfilled in the wireframe, all error conditions catered for.
Timeframe for delivery:
The shortlisted proposals will be requested to sign an NDA before the project is discussed further.
The process is:
a) A shortlist formed from responding suppliers,
b) the shortlisted providers contacted to sign the NDA,
c) A skype meeting agreed and held,
d) by Monday 25th April, the winning proposal notified and hired.
