I need a qualified designer/developer to design a vBulletin theme (version 4.1.x+) for a vBulletin community website.
Looking for a designer who can design a custom vBulletin theme that will attract positive attention within a very specific niche market. Your design will need to be related to this niche market. The theme should be designed to resemble the niche market and attract traffic via the unique one-of-a-kind theme. The theme should be professional, well designed, clean, and SEO friendly. The end-user experience should be satisfying and keep the user coming back daily. Ease of navigation is very important. There are many links that need to be easily accessible along with lots of information, videos, articles, blogs, etc. Theme should be functional for all aspects of vBulletin (blogs, CMS, Forum, etc.)
Experience with transparency, sliding boxes, menu systems, easy navigation, vBulletin login system, advertisement, google adsense, widgets, SEO, AJAX, CSS, PHP, and HTML5 would be a big plus+. It would also be a big plus if you can transfer this theme to a magento storefront.
Login system should be designed to support facebook, google, twitter, etc. Registration should be easy to find and use so that new guests will want to sign up for an account. Throughout the theme the registration should be easy to find for guests. It is very important to provide an easy registration system that is easy to locate throughout the website. I need to increase new registrations. Currently only 1 in 200 sign up for a new account, I would like to see that increase to 1 in 50 signing up for a new account.
An advertisement system will be needed, with up to 3 banner sizes in multiple locations throughout the website along with Google Adsense so that I can start generating income.
Widgets (examples: latest posts, hot topics, most shared, facebook, twitter, etc.) should be located throughout site to promote/market within multiple venues.
Google+, Facebook "Like" and Twitter "tweet" should be integrated throughout theme, forum, blogs, articles, etc.
Attached is a potential mockup/draft. Please note that this is a design that I modified from another site, but I will be needing a MUCH better design than this! Please do not bid on this project if you cannot do a better design than the one I've posted. The only reason I am posting this mockup is to show some of the links, navigation, aspects that will be needed in this design. Your design should be MUCH MUCH better than this design.
Please leave me a MSG and I will provide you with the website link. I will answer any questions you may have.
Please provide links to some of the designs you have worked on.
You will be required to do a few mockups (rough drafts) until we can decide on the right design to move forward with. So please be confident in your web design skill set so we don't waste each others time.
There will be lots more future work for the right fit.
Thank you for bidding.
