Charlie Whinney Associates are looking for someone to help build a
website for a design company specialising in large-scale sculptures
and arty furniture. In its previous incarnation the site received a
lot of press attention, and we will expect it to this time round as
well – so it should form a nice addition to your CV.
A brief spec is at <http://www.ox.compsoc.net/static/cwa-spec.html>.
<http://www.ox.compsoc.net/static/cwa-sketch.ai> is a sketch of the
front page in Adobe Illustrator format; please click on different
layers to see how different pages might work. Do be aware that this
isn't final graphics, but done to provide an idea of how it will look.
The clever feature we want to include is a weather feed, so that what
is on the site reflects the real-life weather / time of day. We have
done some research into this and believe we can use the Yahoo weather
feed and create around 40 graphics to represent each of them. This
will be a background, and attached to the background will also be some
different products, which will change with different weather types;
for example, the lampshades will be showing when it is dark, the fruit
bowls will be showing at lunchtime, etc.
If this isn't clear, or indeed specific enough, we can talk about it
and pin it down. If you are interested, please get in touch with
Alison Ireland <ai(a)charliewhinney.com> to discuss the feasibility of
the desired design, and the approximate timeframe. We have a
relatively small budget for this project; because time is of the
essence, we could pay more for it to be completed within, say, one
month (obviously if the delay is in us providing the graphics we would
take this into account).
