How Madbury started their custom wordpress themes journey

Company name

FixItYourself.com

Overview

FixItYourself.com is a daily blog on home improvement topics. Some posts are news-oriented, others are "evergreen", but posts are always snarky and humorous.

The site's tagline is: "Where Home Improvement Junkies Get their Fix".

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We target adults that have an interest in home improvement topics and have a long "honey-do" list. Most will be homeowners, and are reading posts for their entertainment value, and to learn the latest new products on the home improvement market.

Requirements

Logo:
The logo should include "FixItYourself.com" and perhaps a stylized image that informs the viewer that the site focuses on home improvement.

Header:
The header should include the logo in the upper left hand corner, and the tagline "Where Home Improvement Junkies Get their Fix". It should also include a search box and search button.

Toolbar:
The toolbar (which I'm assuming will look best on the left, but I'm open to seeing on the right) should include:
1. Link to blog posts organized by Category
2. Link to blog posts organized by Month and Year
3. Blogroll

Footer:
1. Copyright notice
2. Login link
3. RSS Link

Colors:
People come to FixItYourself.com for entertainment -- they're not doing hardcore product research. The colors should reflect that. They should be upbeat, and not overly serious.

Tone:
The site is snarky and humorous.

Advertisements:
The site does not have any banner advertisements.

Miscellaneous Notes
Pixel size should be: 1024 x 768
There should be an RSS icon at the top of the page to encourage people to subscribe to the site's feed
The winner will need to provide a layered PSD file upon handoff.
