This should be a 2 column 960 - fixed width. One of our existing partner sites http://www.cincysavers.com should be used as a model for what we want to use (we provide a good deal of the content for cincysavers and will be offering the same on this new site as well as some of the same affiliate partner offerings.)
This theme will be used for multiple publishers. Publishers will 'brand' the site by uploading their banner image into the banner area. We are interested in multiple palettes.
We will require these UI elements as well:
- 960 fixed width, 2 columns 640/320
- about/contact links at top right of site
- a background image to display above and around the 960 site to give a 'finished' look
- 'savings' logo - a logo/icon that communicates 'savings' (along the lines of the 'pig' on the cincysavers site)
- the ability to upload the publisher's custom banner image into the site banner area for a seam-less, branded look
- 'Follow Us' on twitter, facebook, rss
- search widget
- main menu
- you may rely heavily on the cincysavers.com layout and modules. We will be adding custom plugins, 300x250 widgets, 3rd party affiliate plugins.
- below content/above footer, area required for a lower advertising banner
- 2 columns 640/320
