I need this design completed fasts and will pay immediately upon a winner being chosen. If your design is chosen you WILL be tapped for more graphic work on this website to complement the look and feel you have created. Consider this a way to get your foot in the door and have 3 to 6 times more compensation than this competition pays for completing other pieces of this puzzle.
I will be coding the site but I will need to work with the winner after the contest is over to assist with mouse over effects, etc. for additional compensation.
- Must match wireframe layout located at http://www.friendlyplanet.com/fpasia.jpg. A color scheme using aqua colora like the caribbean water or even a gradient purple is preferred. Main area can be white as long as some elements of the page have these colors in them.
Navigation bar should be modern web 2.0-ish. Gradients a must and transparency might be interesting there. Please keep pertinent information above the fold. Also body of page can be narrower than the top width of about 980px, but the body shouldn't be smaller than 940px.
- Item 1...I don't want a template design. Please submit only originals. Please ignore the yellow folders everywhere on the page as those are for notes about the wireframe and should not be in the design.
To clarify: When I said Template submissions, I meant I was concerned that people would submit the $60 templates from templatemonster.com or some other place. I need a unique design with unique elements in it, and I want the person who wins the competition to actually be able to create further work for me in the same style. If they didn't create it in the first place, then they wouldn't be able to do more work for me since they didn't do the original work.
