Custom Wordpress Design/Theme Needed for News Site

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.

Job Description

I need a new custom design/theme for my alternative news site which uses Wordpress.

I'm looking for something simple and professional.

I would like the designer to be familiar with making Wordpress themes so that maybe they could assist me with adding in widgets or features that would be good for a news-type site.

If possible I would like this to be some sort of a long-term relationship so that in the future I can work with the same person if changes or fixes are needed with the design/theme.

I would like the designer to have a portfolio of past work that I can review, preferably including a design for a news type of site.
