I need a template that can be used with Dreamweaver (so the file can be a Dreamweaver file, a Photoshop file, or a Fireworks file) for a home page, a set of gallery pages (same theme for all, but different content), and content pages. The site is for a ranch in Wyoming.
High Island Hunting
We just picked a logo from a recent contest. Now, I need a site template that I can take and edit in Dreamweaver to complete the project. The template should contain a home page with navigation, a gallery template (main page with a designated photo for each gallery represented, and a page that will be used for the galleries themselves), and a content page template that will be used for the content pages of the site.
The site will have three main sections - The Ranch, The Game, and The Hunt, which goes with the tagline you'll see on the logo linked to above. Use a color scheme that works with the logo.
I have the entire Adobe Creative Suite, and I will be using Dreamweaver to finish the coding of the site. I'm open to Flash animations if you want to include them for photos or navigation, but they are not required.
I will be working with an owner throughout the process, and I will be providing feedback from him as designs are submitted. When we have enough initial designs that I feel like I can show him a graphical comp, I will get his initial feedback and selection for the basic look and then complete the work with that designer for the price of this contest to flesh out all the templates. So all you have to submit for this contest is the home page template, but the price is for the development of all the templates I mentioned above.
- Home Page template - should include navigation/sub navigation to the three main sections of the site (The Ranch, The Game, The Hunt) as well as site level navigation to a gallery page, testimonials page and a contact page. There should be an area of this page for highlighted items (with some sort of image or icon) and headings/text about the ranch.
- Gallery Page template - a main landing page that will display one photo for each gallery that links to that gallery. These will be used throughout the site in various places, including a photo gallery for the ranch in general, one for each of the game animals, etc. So the individual galleries have to be linkable directly, and the landing page will be linked from the site level navigation.
- Content Page template - this template will be used for all the content pages of the site. It should be relatively flexible and allow for headings, etc.
- Please make sure you look at the logo for ideas about color scheme and basic feel. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
- File submitted as either Dreamweaver site, Fireworks files, or Photoshop files with all possible graphics as vectors and no layers flattened unnecessarily.
- We will be substituting photos of our own throughout the site - there are no plans to purchase stock photos unless the photos are so perfect that we would be silly not to. I hope that makes sense. Just keep in mind that the photos in your designs on the home page will probably be replaced with suitable images of the actual ranch that I have to scan and insert.
I'm pretty open to ideas. Please let me know if you think of something I haven't yet.
