This is a quick and easy project for a designer who knows movable type.
**Project: design a site look, create and install Movable Type 3.2 templates for a new tips-based blog site.**
The site will be about marketing, with a new tip being posted each day.
I would need to see *at least 3 different graphic designs* to choose from. Then you would convert whichever option chosen (including changes) into each of the different templates required for MT (index, individual posts, date based archives, categories, comments, sitemap - in other words, you'll need to create templates for each of the options available in MT.) All templates should utilize CSS extensively and fit the most recent MT 3.2 formattting.
Individual item templates should include 3 Adsense positions (I'll give more info on where I want them placed) with the Adsense code pulled in as individual SSI's, a newsletter signup box, RSS feed signup, a SSI-pulled Chitika minimall position, a SSI that pulls in a picture of a product and a short description of that product, a place (again SSI based) for randomized product ads. These elements should then be included, as appropriate, on the other templates. *There's lots to be shown on each page - that's why I'm looking for a design pro to make it look good!* (Note, I use lots of SSI's and CSS to enable easy changes without having to rebuild the entire site.)
*Please provide samples of previous MT graphic executions you've done and a timetable to complete the project. Please feel free to ask questions.*
This is the first project of almost 200 I have coming up and I'm looking for the right designer to be able to call on for those projects, so give me a great bid and do great work and there may be tons more coming your way!
**I'm looking for this site to be cutting edge and cool looking.**
**I am willing to consider a flash element as part of the site design (not the whole design) to add motion to the design.**
Designer must provide proof of ownership/creation of all images used on the site, better yet - you provide us the location of the images and we'll buy them using our account then send them to you for inclusion in the template.

Movable Type v 3.2
I will install and test the MT prior to your installing of the templates.
