Looking for a website designer/coder
A team and I are launching a gaming website and we are seeking a definite coder, with preferably a strong background in photoshop design.
A little about the site:
The site will be focused on gaming editorials but primarily on a weekly humorous web comic featuring a character that has had very positive reception. We recently went to Comicpalooza over the weekend and met with artists and writers who absolutely loved the character, offered to draw him for us and would love to guest write for us in the feature. (Writers included people from Tru TV's 'World's Dumbest' and DC Comics).
We have artists, colorists, designers, writers and everyone is ready we're just missing the site.
What I am looking for:
A designer who can give me a personal touch and a fresh style. I'm not looking to work with a company who is going to give me a basic renamed template that they have farmed out to a million other customers.
A strong preference for designers who have a big knowledge of video gaming and/or anime. I am looking for something very unique or as high as my budget can take me which is listed between $50-$330.
I would like the coder to have at least a moderate background in Photoshop, if not graphics can be provided but the designer will have to tell us what he or she needs. Such as banners or buttons etc...We do have an excellent designer on hand just not a coder.
The website will also need to be easily managed so if this needs to work hand in hand with a content management system that's fine. We will need sections for different articles concerning games, devices, a comic section, as well as a member portal that will be connected to our Vbulletin forum software. So please have knowledge of Vbulletin so members can login from the main page.
Depending on what content management system is used, and I assume there will be one, the website designer will have to guide us through that us well if at all possible.
