Six Flags is seeking either an individual multimedia/web designer or a small design agency to create a new website for Fright Fest, our six-week Halloween event. We're either looking for a complete web shop that can design and then build the site or a highly talented individual designer who can create the concept and then we'll contract with a web programmer for the build.
It is important that you review the attached RFP before you apply.
Following an underlying site structure that we've used in the past, the emphasis of this project will be on creating a frightening new look/design that captures the terror, frightfulness and maybe even a little of the fun of our teen/adult-oriented event. We want you to use a combination of great design, images, and audio/visual effects to convey to potential guests what our event is in a unique and exciting way. You are to set the tone of the event by capturing in one website all of the haunted houses, horrifying shows, graveyard frights, scary rides, roaming monsters â in a manner that will excite and intrigue consumers considering our event as an alternative to a traditional haunted house experience.
Essentially we want you to take our previous year's site structure (viewable at [url removed, login to view]) and design/develop something that looks and feels much more exciting and frightening.
The primary deliverable for the project will be one website featuring 14 structurally identical sections (alternatively it can be a network of 14 structurally and thematically identical sites that all share the same base theme). The site should be built upon a popular and solidly tested CMS such as Wordpress (preferred), Joomla or Drupal. The site should be easy to manage and maintain â extra points will be awarded if you can make your design work within the context of last yearâs Wordpress site (not required, but it would simplify our content entry). Note that one of the sites will be in Spanish and another will be in French â you must be able to accommodate these language issues in your design.
50% of our site visitors will be visiting the website on their phones, which means that your site design needs to be responsive or adaptive â to ensure that both phone visitors and web visitors have an amazing experience. Your site must function correctly and look good in all major web browsers.
Proposals/bids should be submitted no later than Monday, February 23. We will select a designer no later than March 6. Development must be complete by April 27, with various milestones and deadline obligations to be met along the way.
Fee is somewhat flexible depending on what you are proposing, your portfolio and your experience.
