This will be a public website, just like swoopo, but with a private area for users to manage account

Make strong references to Swoopo.com

Creative Logo and Name Proposals will be required

I definitely don’t have any set idea or plan, and I am very flexible, but these are some of the ideas that i would like the website to have

It needs to be “overly” user-friendly not only for the consumers, but for me as well, to make changes and edit and input values in different areas

It also needs to be Mac-Friendly, as my primary operating system is Mac OS X

The project will be conducted through these steps:

– Assignment
– Web design proposals and choose
– Development
– Full beta delivery and in-depth function test
– Bug fix
– Delivery

Payments will follow this schedulation:

– 30% at full beta delivery
– 40% at final delivery
– 30% after 30 days from the final delivery
-15% ADDITION 6 Months After Launch

No $/hr bids will be considered – please submit a quote for the entire project.

Please attach:

– A portfolio, preferably online with live working examples. References may be asked for.
– A proposal with a timeline and structured stages for phase completion.

We look forward to your interest.

Thank you.
