As you can probably tell every time you load the page, Crashburn Alley dot com is in need of a facelift. Somewhere around five years ago, I shabbily customized the current design you see now but as we enter 2014 the year of our Lord, it’s time to get modern.
If you or someone you know does web design and would like a winter project, please send an email to CrashburnAlley at Gmail dot com with the subject “Web Design”. Include your name, your portfolio, what you’ll charge, and any ideas you may have in mind. You should be proficient with HTML, CSS, PHP, WordPress, and Photoshop. Once we get to talking, I’ll discuss specifics, but here are some general ideas of what I’m looking for:
- Text-focused — we don’t have any licensing with any photo sites so picture-heavy designs are superfluous for our needs
- Adaptability with mobile devices
- Custom banner and logos
- Red/white color scheme
- Social media integration
- Modern commenting system (threaded; upvote/downvote) that isn’t a Disqus clone
- Room for advertisements, including text and banners
Ideally, I’d prefer to deal with freelancers rather than design firms as a way to limit costs. I will most likely not be able to respond to emails until after the weekend.
