I have finally come across the time to turn gibthis.com into what I really want (rather than my personal blog) and have started this process as of tonight.
I have decided to give the Mambo CMS a shot, thanks to all of the rave reviews it has received and the time it will save me in not coding all of the stuff myself.
I am currently looking for someone to develop a Mambo theme for this site. GibThis.com is a First Person Shooter Gaming Portal, focusing on news and reviews within this gaming genre.
The selected artist will have a lot of artistic freedom in this project - I am very easy person to work with. I don't really have much of an idea of what I am looking for in terms of the look, but I have a good impression of the sort of design and layout I am looking for.
Please see http://www.gamespy.com/ and http://www.gamespot.com/ for examples as to the type of design I am looking for, although it will be a lot smaller as I am focusing on one genre only (first person shooters).
The selected freelancer should be skilled in not only web design, but the Mambo template system. You should be open-minded and willing to make minor changes as needed. The availability of future work for GibThis.com and other projects is very high.
All template/image files provided in normal Mambo template installation fashion - upload and select. All data will become the property of GibThis.com and Michael D. Wales.
Please send examples and resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Freelance - Mambo Template." Please provide a quote and estimation of time until completion. There is no defined budget for this, so please be honest with your quote - I have no problem paying good money for good work.
