I need you to design and build a new Web site for my small, boutique professional services firm. Then upload to a new Web host and make sure everything works as we expected.
Site needs to be in WordPress and I would prefer a custom built site rather than based on existing commercially available templates. However, I will consider high-quality templates if you are able to select on that does everything I need the Web site to do. Please consider my top three example sites when recommending an existing template. In your bid, please specifically mention which 1-2 existing templates you would use if you plan to utilize commercially available template.
I expect to have 7-8 top-level pages and most likely each of these will then have 2-4 sub-pages. At the moment the only media I have are photos, but I will eventually want to upload video and audio so site should be capable of accomodating this. Will also need to incorporate links to my book at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and MailChimp for blog and email news signup.
New content is being developed and should be ready within the next week or so. I do not sell products online (no e-commerce) so NO storefront applications necessary. And, while I like technology as much as the next guy, my priorities are fast-loading pages and easy navigation so that my prospective clients can quickly and directly find the information they seek when they arrive on the site.
I want to see real-world examples of your most recent work done for other professional services firms such as legal, accounting, financial, consulting or similar service providers.
Here are some sites that I like, for various reasons. The first THREE are my favorites visually:
These sites have some navigation characteristics and pages with features I want to incorporate into my site as well:
