We're re-developing a desktop application for the web. That means we need to redesign the UI.
0) This is a one-page web app; we may need to come up with a pop-up overlay design, but only 1 main page design.
1) Users will not be very web-savvy so controls need to look obvious..
2) Users will be older, so no tiny fonts.
3) Make it beautiful so it stands out from the battleship gray corporate garbage apps.
4) Design should be friendly to tablets, but doesn't necessarily need to work on phones.
5) You will have screenshots of the existing desktop app to work from.
6) No pre-made or re-sold templates will be accepted - this client requires original design work.
Extra consideration will be given to candidates who can implement the HTML/CSS/jQuery of their own design.
