We are looking for a designer to come up with a template for integrating into one our search feeds. In simple terms, we need a layout for a search engine with a home page, a search results page, and a theme/logo that can be applied to a few supplementary pages. We usually do these in-house and typically only spend a few hours on each theme. On this occasion, we want something a bit different so have put it out to the Sitepoint community.
The best way to see what we require is to look at an existing search engine that shows many of the same features we need. We've included a few references that we lik so you have an idea what we need. We don't need developed HTML. PSD files would be fine. The domain name should also be turned into the logo so the name you are designing for is "ukbusinessfinder.com". On the home page we need a clear search box and footer links to "About Us", Contact Us" and "Privacy". It may also say something like "copyright ukbusinessfinder.com - 2007". A nice to have feature would be to show a layout for news items. These would have a headline, source, and a few lines of copy along with a link to the full story.
The search engines and parking pages that you might refer to
http://www.ukbusinessfinder.co.uk/ [not ours but happens to be the .co.uk version of our name]
Any of these will provide a layout and sample content. If you need any more information please just ask. You have freedom to use the colours and styles you want. The results list will be implemented in CSS so you may want to use actaul text rather then rendered type from Photoshop.
Thanks for bidding...
