How guitarpro started their other graphic design journey
I am trying to build a list from my blog. People find the blog from my YouTube posts. If they register they get a free lesson. I need the look of my blog to be cool, friendly and inviting with a guitar-oriented theme. My demographic suggests people 35 and older so there needs to be some uncluttered sophistication and organization.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Take my existing Wordpress (2.7.1) blog and make it look cool with a new theme and style. This blog is about playing guitar and other things of interest to guitar players including interviews. It needs to be simple/uncluttered and hip-looking and should appeal to people 35 and older males. I need an index and the current articles moved over and embed HD videos embedded which are hosted on Youtube (some are on the blog now, but they all need to be embed to all play in HD and be organized- most are brief guitar lessons). You can view my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/stratoman. This will possibly lead to more work like a squeeze page and revisions as it grows in popularity. You must have been on 99 Designs for some time and be an absolute ninja on Wordpress.
The blog must be easily updated by me or an administrator so you will need to create an (easy for me to use) template when I want to add pages.
I would really like to get this done for $75 -$100. Be sure to have examples of this type of work to be considered. The blog is http://www.guitarbanddvd.org Please be in North America and absolutely fluent in English.
- I am not a designer and have no experience with this. You need to come up with something that has an easy to look at color scheme and modern fonts. It can look even a little retro/moderne perhaps. It needs to be easy to navigate and have embedded videos and categorized. I have done what I can myself and it looks lousy. It needs to have a little flair but not cartoonish. Images of Stratocasters, Les Pauls, Telecasters etc. and amplifiers, effects pedals might work.
- Gimmicky, cartoonish or cluttered. It needs to be sublty classy and still look rock and roll.
