I'm searching for someone who can offer design as well as programming for a site. Minor graphics work (banner, word type logo, etc), suggestions on best layout and design option as well as the actual programming.
Ideally looking for a drupal style CMS system (i'm slightly familiar with drupal) that combines a strong forum platform such as vanilla or phpbb (open source).
Open to suggestions as this is just a hobby site while I'm waiting on some other work. Site will be geographically dependent so CSS,PHP and MySql will be useful.
Site should be laid out similarly to politico.com or topix.com. Each region (administrator addable) should have a landing page similar to the front page of politico.com but with regional input versus main sites landing page.
Main site should land on this page with drop down menu for regional (country,state/region, etc....i.e....Europe-England-Wales.....
Regional menu should take user to similar page but populated with news/posts/info from only their region
At least 5 user levels with 3 admin levels to allow for regional editors.
I realize this is very vague but I only have a vague idea of what I want to do with the site. Open to suggestions in your proposals/bid. Timeline is approximately 1 month but it's not set in stone.
Please submit link to anything like this that you may have done or links to layouts/sites you think might work.
Again, sorry for vagueness but this is just a hobby site for me to play with for awhile.
