Need help to make templates for an AIDS and TBC education project

Post by alexcasti » Tue Nov 13, 2007 6:38 pm

That's is, I am donating an organization that works educating peruvian society so to better life and prevent AIDS cases and TBC.

I had my volunteers but the template builder went out of the project to leave the country, so I dont have help now.

I can even pay for the service, because I am the one who is donating it, but I dont have a joomla template person to do the job.

Any helpers?

Thanks!

BTW with all this issues I am completely late.

What kind of design ideas do you have? Are you looking for something really unique? Or could a template be adapted for your needs?

What organization are you donating this too?

Sounds like an interesting/worthwhile project.

Amy :)

You may be doing this a bit backwards (that is, seeking someone to accommodate/adapt a specific design - unless you really do seek a custom template design). There are many attractive, free template designs that would speed up your site development and lay the foundation for an effective, educational site.

IMHO, I would get going and adapt a free open-source template rather than spend time & money & energy on a custom design.

Good luck - you have a noble mission in front of you!

Going for converting a design to a template is a lot of work and if you can pay for it you would probably best going to a commercial organisation as it will need to be upgraded as Joomla goes. But there are thousands of templates out there and many of those will be supported through upgrades to Joomla, why not look for something that is close to what you want and then just tweak any colours you need to? You could buy Dreamweaver and get the template module available for that - not used it, as it is cheaper to buy templates. After all the money is better spent on the education part of the project. Why not include Joomla! development classes in that project and let the benificients build templates?

FrankA2 , thanks for throwing in my face the obvious.

You can see that the issue is solved. Look at the solved icon ;) I found a great person to help and he did it great. At least, he left the project in a point where I am able to finish it without problem.

If you want to help, help is always greeted, if you want to write to tell... IMPROVISE because if one dont pay,  even if its for helping other people, they dont deserve a good work... please don't do it, it offends.

Thanks

Glad you found someone skilled to help. That design was fabulous and, obviously, an important project. Please share when it is complete.

All the best with your effort,
Amy :)
