Job Description

We looking for a skilled responsive UI designer that can assist us with composing a theme for Spree Commerce. The layout will be responsive and adaptive with a linear layout in pure HTML5 feeling.

The hard part is to make it hook into Spree using Deface https://github.com/spree/deface without make it collide with other modules modifying the same html-hooks.

The framework used will be Bootstrap. We will not try to reinvent the wheel but the style base components will be copied from a WP theme so the job only require extreme knowledge with jQuery and CSS3 the final design part to give it a unique look will be done by us.

The job will include a lot of neat jQuery functionality, it doesn't always have to be tailor made if custom made but it has to be JSLint valid. We will not use Backbone or any similar framework due to the site will be in a secondary stage updated to Rails4 using Turbolinks.

This work will probably take a couple of weeks so we need someone who can dedicate their time for this during the development phase.
