OK thanks to those that offered advice, I purchased four templates I like from the site and will have them customized at GAF . Seems the easy way to do it.
@ Dwhitmore Is your comment “No, you’re a towel.” just a randomly generated insult or did you study stupidity?
Really what the hell is that supposed to mean.
My last comment one this subject, there are some talented designers around here, this is probably the best template site I have seen, some amazing work, but don’t be so quick to flame a Newbie. Not everyone understands the terminology you use. I was actually ready to spend but I will take my business elsewhere.
To the designers who I bought the templates from thanks a million, great work.
I think the correct terminology your looking for is called a proposal.
Ah… yes thanks, I suppose I will get the hang of the terminology If I stick around long enough and let you guys throw abuse at me.
OK I got it wrong, being new to this I had no idea how it worked, when i said a mockup I did not mean you design a whole site and send it to me, I meant give me some idea of what I am going to be paying for, regarding color and layout etc. Of course I know it takes time and effort.
If instead of jumping in with smart comments and snide remarks some one could have just said that’s not how it works I would have understood.
Anyway thanks for your input lesson learned, I apologize if any one was offended, that was never my intention, as for the person who said you don’t want to work for a client like me, that’s your loss, my writing style may not convey it but I am a good person to work for, I pay on time and I listen to what experts tell me.If those same experts cannot be bothered to explain how the system works without resorting to childish comments then that’s fine i will move on and find some one who will explain it to me.
Once again I apologize to anyone who was offended by my post.
So your asking for a mockup before paying for it?
Please read my post… yes i asked for a mockup in Jpeg (a screenshot) I don’t want a HTML page. Do you think I will just hand over money before I see what you are offering?? If you are not willing to do this, its very simple don’t offer your services. I don’t think its an unreasonable request. After all I have posted my companies web sites, so I am not really going to rip you off.
I need both of the following sites redesigned,
color should remain the same (company color is green) Logos and other pics from the can be used.
I like a light colored site Web 2-ish….both sites must have contact forms and hotel site should have a room booking form, that will email results to an email address. It is important that the sites be highly optimized for SEO purposes. We are a catering and hotel company so graphics should reflect that.
I would like to see a mockup of your idea in Jpeg format and the price per site.
