Seeing endless sites that are ran on word press which all seem so flashy and original (aesthetically), when creating my website i was delighted to be working with wordpress! Though unfortunately i soon found out that the preset themes aren't as editable as i thought - disheartened, i really wanted to be able to go beyond simply editing the background and the header. So then i thought i'd give a go at creating my own theme- but only ended up almost at the point of tears, finding my self with a folder of a million loose files and being reminded of my ridiculously embarrassing lack of knowledge on html.
In all honesty, I really do consider my self a good graphic designer and i'm capable of producing all the graphic components of the theme myself- but am clueless on how to piece everything together.
Here's my proposition: I'd quite like to work with someone who understands how to build a theme, i'll provide all the graphic components i want incorporated within the theme and a visual prototype image created on Photoshop of what i want the overall site to look like. I'd appreciate someone who would stay constantly in contact with me advising me on what would and wouldn't work (although i don't want anything too extraordinary or anything i haven't seen before). I am also willing to pay for this service.
