Weird News Blog Template


We are looking for someone to design a new template for a blog which focuses on weird news from around the world.

Beyond general weird news, some of the main topics are:

* Aliens, UFOs & Crop Circles

* Bigfoot

* Circuses & Carnivals

* Ghosts

* Loch Ness Monster


* The design should have a late 1940's - late 1950's retro feel (think martinis and bowling)

* The design can include retro shapes

* The header should contain a lady that looks shocked by the news (preferably illustrated)


The layout will consist of:

* a graphical header

* a top (horizontal) navigation menu

* a two column main content area

- the left side will be the main content

- the right side will be for additional menu items

* a footer


* Most importantly, this should not violate any copyright laws and we need to know where all graphics came from (original or stock).

* CSS based design (div based and tableless)

* Works in both IE and Firefox

* The size should be 800px wide broken down as follows (left to right):


- 20px lt padding

- 540px main content area

- 20px spacing


- 200px menu/advertising area

- 20px rt padding

* Graphical header, no taller than 120px

* Custom bullets

* The design should be centered

* There is some creative freedom with the color scheme, but the main content area should be white

* There should be link hover styles (changing colors and/or graphics)

* Styles for common HTML tags

* Styles for form items

* The design should be crisp and clean and NOT busy

* The background should mesh well with the design and not be distracting (simple is good)


* Spoken & Written English

* Available via AIM or Skype M-F 8am-5pm EDT

* Prompt e-mail communication

* Excellent graphic design skills

* Previous examples of similar work


* Print style sheet

* Preferably located in the United States or Canada

* Knowledge of WordPress templates is a plus

* Category icons (possibly a future job)


* All development files (PSD, AI, EPS, etc.)


* CSS Files

* All used graphics


This project should be completed within 14 days from the start.
