I know the perfect place to find a person to do this! It's called freelancer.com http://www.freelancer.com/
Just make a project listing with a budget of $500 and there you have it.

Attached is a custom art design by Savant Garde Institute. Artemis Smith created the image and has rights to it, describing it as reflecting the ultimate hard reality of an unlimited physical existence. It was offered for the art contest, and I referred Artemis to the details of all the aspects of this particular design contest. If there is interest in using the image or working with Artemis, then the original email with contact information is on our imminst.support ( at ) gmail account. There had been a previous entry by Artemis that I did not post as it was not a copyright free image--this second and new entry is a copyright free image and exclusive rights could be granted to ImmInst.

Question from email


For request (1), what level of major forum section do you mean?
Community, Action!, Bioscience, Health & Nutrition, etc.? Or one level
further down? For requests (2) and (3), are we talking a header
design, a background image, or just a conceptual page layout sketch?
And for request (4), do you want straight web design + concept work,
or just the concept work, leaving the coding to someone else? If you
let me know what I need, I'll do my best to accomodate you however I
can.


Thanks for your interest!

Re 1) We'd probably be looking at one level further down, i.e. where you see the 'hourglass' symbols on the forum index page at the moment.

Re 2/3/) Don't want to be too prescriptive. If you have an artisic/design vision let us know about it. Generally though, we'd be looking at the header and the navigation colum to make them more appealing.

Re 4) Just the concept and the art, although it would be great if the concept didn't call for very complicated coding that will be difficult to adjust in the long run.

Hope this helps to answer your questions. I'll share the answer on the forum for general benefit.

First deadline is due tomorrow.

To clarify: at this stage we do not expect a finished product, merely sufficient demonstration of a design concept.
Those who are interested in contributing should send an expression of interest, even if the design has not been fully developed.

frontpage: after those posts... is someone working on it? would a slight improvement of http://www.longecity...es&folder=&id=6 from my part be sufficient to deliver a first step, that will be replaced by a better version ??

We did have a nice entry presented to support before the deadline, the board discussed it today and will be presenting it here. The design is good and the hope currently as that the artist will work on a few points.
