We would like to overhaul the look and feel of http://www.concurix.com, and we are looking for a talented designer to build out a design language for our site.
There are four major URLs to redesign:
1. http://www.concurix.com (the home page)
2. http://www.concurix.com/demo (our profiler dashboard)
3. http://www.concurix.com/monitor/cx-…1371941861 (a demo of our monitoring dashboard.)
We would like to get an overall design language for our site:
1. design concepts for the look and feel, particularly the homepage
2. the UI framework and design language (ideally in the form of CSS or LESS fragments)
3. the raw elements needed for an HTML5/CSS3 implementation (e.g. font names, color choices, any background images / textures / icons / art elements used, etc.).
For the two dashboard pages, we would like design refinement of both the overall UI of the pages, but also for the specific visualizations on those pages.
We will apply this design language to the rest of the concurix.com site, so the design elements should be applicable to other portions of our site (e.g. documentation, account management, etc).
While Photoshop is fine for initial concept sketches and iterating on the look and feel, we will NOT be slicing a photoshop file for the implementation. Our site evolves rapidly and uses a Bootstrap3 based responsive layout to work across all devices/sizes. Thus, it is more important to have the raw elements that we can quickly evolve the site. An important criteria for designer selection will be the ability to share with us the underlying raw design elements like colors, font names, images, etc. as above.
Adobe Typekit fonts are fine to use, and we support only HTML5/CSS3 browsers. Please check with us if you want to use design elements (e.g. fonts) that we would need to license. Generally speaking that will be OK however.
Thematically, we want our site to look very clean, modern and high tech, and convey an emotional quality of being leading edge. Our Node.js profiler/monitor product is the most sophisticated and in-depth of any on the market, so we want our design language to reflect that.
We would prefer to keep our current logo; the ideal design would mesh well with that element. Otherwise, designers should feel free to be creative with all other aspects of the site.
