Our marketing firm needs a professional Web Designer with experience in WordPress content management systems to take over the graphic and user interface design of our website.  We want to talk to you if your portfolio includes clean, modern, responsive websites with excellent navigational structures and detailed linking. 


I’m looking to develop an online database (think like google drive situation), where users can login and be able to access and download the information that’s within the database. The info will likely just consist of PDFs, but if it’s pretty easy to develop the site in a way that I can upload multiple types of files, (.doc, .mp4, audio files, etc) that would be good just in case things change in the future. I would like for the users to be able to search for certain key words (which either exist within the documents, or match the “tags” that I have tagged the documents with), and it would be great if those words come up as highlighted (like they would in a Google Search) if they exist within a document. I would need some sort of admin access which allows me to add/subtract documents to the database and “tag” them with certain things. I need the information to be well-protected so it can’t be hacked, because the info within that database is literally the lifeblood of my company. I would also like the website to have just a regular 'ole home page that has our promotional video up top, and below that, a text box which describes what we do, and below that, a carousel of a few images.
