Website Redesign Request for Proposal

Website Redesign Request for Proposal


Live On The Vine - The Long Island Winterfest - (LITV) is a 6 week mid winter music festival that takes place in Long Island’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, hotels, and other venues on the eastend of Suffolk County, New York. The festival currently maintains a web site at The organizers of LITV are soliciting proposals from qualified web designers and developers to redesign the site, incorporating new features, an updated interface, and the latest web technologies.

Existing Site - What’s Good and What’s Not

The existing LITV website was designed several years ago and provides solid foundation upon which a new site can be developed. The festival organizers are generally satisfied with the current organization of content on the site. The LITV logo should be retained in the new design with same or similar color scheme. Copy on the site is generally acceptable, with modification to me made by the festival staff as required during the re-design process. The features that are currently missing and/or lacking on the site include photo and video presentation, social media integration, venue map and transportation information, ticket sale integration and presentation of featured performer information. 

Core Scope 

Your proposal for the re-design of the LITV website should include the following:

1. Use of the WordPress CMS/publishing system. The festival organizers have chosen WordPress as the platform for the new site based on its widespread use and popularity. Please describe and demonstrate your WordPress design and development experience, including deployment without relying on a web control panel. The festival organizers place a high value on working with designers and developers that have a good understanding of how the platform functions “under the hood” rather than simply pointing and clicking to achieve goals. Your proposal should include use of the current (non-beta) WordPress release.

2. Integration of the current LITV logo and the current color scheme of the existing site. Your design proposal should incorporate the current festival logo and should be based on the color scheme of the current site or a or slightly varied color scheme.

Site Schedule
The new LITV site should be launched by apprx. August 22, 2014. Your proposal should include provisions to meet this launch date.
