Hi there,

I’m not sure if this is the best place to post this but here goes!

I need to get a custom theme built for our magento store. Our store is being built on Community version 1.5.
Basically I need somebody to built me a functional theme from low fidelity, annotated wireframes. My designers will then produce PSD files based on the theme which I will then need the developer to mark up. problem is that I have know experience outsourcing development work of this nature and don’t really know where to start.

Does anybody have any insights they can share from previous similar requirements? Where should I start? Where’s a good place to advertise? What to look out for with contractors etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We need to get this built ASAP but our budget is modest at best.
