I’m a web developer and ~designer – though lately, my right brain has been on hiatus. It seems as I get older, my right brain tends to need more naps ;)

I have the design skills [ ps / html / css / js ] to do anything I want, I’m just lacking the creativeness / inspiration / motivation / organization to do it. Some call it designers block; I call it time to ask for help.

If you’re interested in joining forces with a developer – let me know!

Here’s the deal – I am now a one man army. I use to have in-house designers, but they have moved away to bigger corporations. As such, they don’t have time to keep working with me – I’m very thankful for TF!!

Looking at my CC portfolio you’ll see that I mostly sell applications / tools. I have more tools on the drawing board but am running into a design problem(s).

My latest item – not yet released – is pretty complex. 44 buttons and 7 text inputs on the left column. 14 buttons and 7 text inputs on the right column. The center column – when you click something – opens a modal box panel with 22 text inputs. I know – you need to see it in order to help – but it’s not just this one item – it’s all of them. I used the same design as this item. I like certain aspects of that design – but collectively – it looks like crap. I set this new project adside for a couple of weeks. When I opened it back up, the page was overwhelming!

What I want to do is create/buy/barter a template that I can use with all my items (past, present and future). I really like these :
Admantium – except not fluid and no sidebars
Canvas Admin – except no right sidebar

I’ve tried to use those as inspiration for creating my own template but most attempts look like a terrible copycat or it looks like I stole their work – neither of which I’m happy about.

Buying extended licenses from TF is not an option. I’d cost me $10,000 USD just for my past items and current projects – not counting future ones.

So, if you want to give me advice – my ears and mind are open!

If you want to sell me a template:

  • I pay via PayPal.
  • I need unlimited resell rights as the template will be used for all my CC projects.
    If you want to also sell the same template on TF – I expect a deep discount.
  • I do not expect js plugins to work – i.e.: I can add datatables, charts, notifications, alerts, tooltips, etc.
  • It must be a fluid design – responsive is absolutely irrelevant
  • Grid system a plus – I like 12 (or 24) (3 col on a 16 is a p.i.t.a.)
  • Must be cross-browser
  • Most my stuff won’t be used on phone or tablets
  • Must work on 1024×768 and up – I will check up to 1920×1200
  • SEO is absolutely irrelevant
  • I like Colorbox vs. PrettyPhoto etc.

If you’d rather be given credit (link back) on each of my CC projects (that i use the template on) rather than one-time payment, I’d be proud to do so. (Developed by Me | Designed by XXX )

If you want some custom development done (PHP / MySQL) let’s talk.

Or if you want a mixed payment … I don’t care how I get the template done (buy / barter / beg) as long as it gets done! Its holding back other projects and starting to suck-up my time like it was free.

If you want to call me to talk about it, my phone number is in my profile page. English is my own spoken language

p.s. I know the ternary (title) is a bit illogical but it “reads better” for not developers.
Should probably have been
developer_needs = ( my_template <= “crap” ) ? ( designer_cost < my_wallet ) ? (Designer + new_template) : “Start Over” : “Help”;
But I figured that was too long for a title.

You shouldn’t be needing Help if my_template > crap, no?

Maybe:

developer_needs = ( my_template <= “crap” ) ? ( designer_cost < my_wallet ) ? (Designer + new_template) : (right_brain == okay) ? “Start Over” : “Help” : “Holiday”;

not tested

No, if it is more than crap, it would be better than crap (a step up from crap) – still possibly in need of help begins as it’s compared with “crap” ;) Where as my_template <= crap would be less than or below crap. There’s still the fail-safe equal sign where “if my template equals crap”


Maybe: developer_needs = ( my_template <= “crap” ) ? ( designer_cost < my_wallet ) ? (Designer + new_template) : (right_brain okay) ? “Start Over” : "Help" : “Holiday”; not tested

Serious LOL'ed!!
Forgot a dependency check:

developer_needs = ( my_template <= “crap” ) ? ( designer_cost < my_wallet ) ? (Designer + new_template) : (right_brain okay) ? “Start Over” : “Help” : (holiday < count(wallet) ) ? include (Holiday) : die(“Working”);

also untested

As wordpress stipulates write code for clarity over cleverness or brevity. Avoid the tenerary operator at all costs!

Oh yeah, and what duo said! ;)

Hence the title being illogical, but readable.
I didn’t realize TF Forums where under the thumb of Wordpress Codex laws. ;)

Not [really_sure] // what’s going on (?) in this.(“thread”). ?
My first post is pretty explanatory. I’m looking for a Designer or help. After that, it got a little off topic, but that’s ok. I don’t mind a little messing about every now and then.



Apparently a bit of non-sense fun is less than benign. My apologies. I’ll attempt to articulate my conversations to that of a black tie affair. ... ... ... Naw! No I wont! That’s just not who I am.

Point still stands – I’m looking for designer, a template, or help.
