I'd like a nice and clean design, not too busy. Here is a example of the structural layout - http://wordpressthemesbase.com/view/528.html, but DO NOT simply duplicate that theme - we want a three column, this is a two column. We want the designers to have the freedom to do what they'll think will look the best.
Right sidebar will be for navigation
Optional Left sidebar will be smaller for them to insert Google Adsense or image ads.
Header image (you are welcome to use istock photos)
Background image (again, you are welcome to use istock photos)
width - 900 px
The design should include a home page, an about page and a blog posts page.
Display “Find me on Facebook” and “Follow me on Twitter” buttons
We want to place an anchor text link in the footer that cannot be removed (at least not without breaking the theme).
Please no flash.
Must be compatible with all internet browsers
Have fun with the design! We'll promise to give you a quick response and feedback! We may be interested in a continued relationship witht he designer to have the theme redesigned for other holidays or niches.
The theme will be coded by 99desings coding-partner so it should meet their criteria.
