    I'm looking to have a website designed for the accessory/custom vehicle part of the dealership I work out. The website will be very basic and will consist of 5-6 pages total. The budget for the project is $300-$500. The timeline for completion is 2-3 weeks. The design/layout theme should reflect our company logo and t-shirts.

    What's needed for the webpage:

    A main page featuring a few pictures of trucks we've done and our slogan. The main page will need easy navigation linking to the other pages.

    A page for customer rides where photos of previous work and descriptions can be easily changed and updated.

    A page for vehicles we have for sale, similiar to the customer rides page.

    A "directions" page that allows users to get driving directions to our location.

    A contact page with phone number, address, and e-mail address. Will need to include a javascript for customers to send questions/comment.

    What I'll provide:
    All contact information, addresses, e-mail addresses. Pictures of complete customer vehicles. Company logos/t-shirt logos. Javascript for questions/comments.

    The majority of our customers are truck owners (Super Dutys, Ram 2500+, etc.)

    I will be available for contact Tues-Saturday 8-4 EST via e-mail, AIM, or my cell phone during the design phase.

    I'll never, ever build a website for someone who needs "a simple website done".

    I've learned that lesson long ago. :mamoru2:

    when a customer says "simple" it is either the opposite, or they want to get it basically free. no wai.

    "Simple" does tend to mean "I don't know what I want yet". I've got training in requirements gathering and design specification, but sadly I have little expertise in web programming, so I'd be useful for little more than generating paper.

    Want it done cheep?? Call your local university or CC and speak with the head of the CS department. There are plenty of students that would love to jump on a real world application to help bolster their resumes. Plus they'll usually work for pizza and beer. :)

    dunno what univ you went to, but if a prof came to us with that offer we'd likely fall on the floor laughing. There is nothing "resume-worthy" in this assignment.

    I can do that for you, including some nice graphics. You'll have to provide me with all the images, and then I'll have my graphics guy whip something up. You're looking at $500 for sure.

    This is my current client, he's picking between the two designs here:
    http://www.onewebave.com/portfolio/

    And my last clients:
    http://www.coloradocemeteries.org/
    http://www.Net1osc.com

    The graphics take 1-2 weeks, with your feedback, and then the site can be done over a weekend.

    That's my graphics guy, not my content writer... No, he can't spell. Yes, I proof everything before it goes final.

    Your mouse-over image code is broken on net1osc.com. When I mouse-over the second ORDER NOW button the first one turns colors :).
