Delivery & Payment:
1. Payment on delivery of final files
2. All monies through Elance Escrow
3. No upfront payments
How we will work together:
1. You will design 3 sample themes based on the above project guidelines and I will select a final design/ maybe some adjustments will still be necessary but we can communicate and work through this quickly
The designs can be images in Photoshop PSD format
It’s usually quicker to send me the PSD file so I can make quick changes if necessary
2. You will then build a WordPress theme and deliver the WordPress zip file along with all the PSD files.
3. If you need to use stock photos let me know what you have in mind before buying anything. This can be paid for separately above the project fees.
4. You will install the wordpress theme on the final website ready for testing
let me know if interested
