This project is to do the graphical design and basic HTML for a Candy Store.
The store will be a shopping website, but I will do all the programming code for the functions of the shopping cart.
What I need is the basic layout and design of the website. Most candy store website I find on the internet are boring.
I like curves and rounded edges in my design.
I am working with the owner of the store and I have a few sites she likes and one that she doesn't I also have some colors that she likes.
I will post her email in a file with this information.
The design needs to be easily expandable such as for links to other areas of the website as she will probably want to add more content later.
The only images I have is there logo which I will post in a file as well.
Her store sells a variety of different candies for old (retro) candies to new candies.
Because we don't have any pictures and the canvas is fairly wide open, you as the designer will need to find some inspiration and use your own creativity to come up with a great design for the website. (I am not looking for just basic block design as I could do that myself)

This message is to all bidders. I forgot to attach the a letter from the store owner that I meant to. I have now attached the letter. It says a few things she likes and somethings she doesn't and it mentions some colors she likes. Thanks for bidding.

I am broadcasting this message to all bidders.
I have a large number of bids to choose from and some seem promising.
Show me something that will differentiate you from the other bidders. Show me an example of something that relates to this specific project. For example show me a website that has a nice curvy style and even better if this is an e-commerce site.
If you have nothing you could try posting a quick mock up line drawing of what you would have in mind for the design.
Or anything else you can show to help me pick you. I am not interested in length of experience. I have been doing web design for 10 years and I am still not the best with graphics, which is why I am looking for help here.
I am not interested in education, because I know that sometimes the best people have no education and I also know that sometimes people with the most education still are not very talented.
I see many great web site examples, but I want to know that you can fit the a style I like. Show me you are the one for this Job.
If you believe you have already shown me examples that relate to this project then you can ignore this email, you may already be on my consideration list.
