Journal Skin Commissions (CLOSED)

Sun Jun 2, 2013, 7:55 PM
My backlog of commissions has reached a new level of terrifying, so commissions are going to have to close. :P I'll still be working on the commissions of those I've contacted already. :)

I may be up for taking commissions again in August.

Journal Skins



All journal skins come with some essential basics:

  • Backgrounds: colors, patterns, or textures
  • Custom fonts and styled headers
  • Header/footer images

You can then commission specific custom features that you would like included in your journal. Some popular features that I can code are:

  • Menus/Links
  • Columns/Sidebars
  • Scroll bars
  • Styled Lit and Image Thumbs
  • Author avatar (great for group skins)
  • Buttons/Social Media Icons
  • Custom Boxes
  • Special cursors
  • Blockquotes



All skins will also now come with CSS3 transitions (try hovering over the prices below for an example).


$10

1000 pts

Simple Journal Skin


A basic journal skin that is simple and very easy to use.  Includes ~1 custom feature.





$15

1500 pts

Regular Journal Skin


A regular journal skin great for everyday, personal use. Includes ~2-3 custom features.





$20

2000+pts

Complex Journal Skin


An awesome journal skin personalized to perfection. Includes 4+ custom features.






Commissioning



1. Commissioning


Once you have an idea of what you are looking for, you can contact me through comment or note. I will let you know whether your designs are possible (they almost always are) and how much your skin would cost.


2. Payment


I accept both points and PayPal. For points, you may either pay all of it upfront or half at the beginning and half at the end. For PayPal, it is most efficient to pay me everything upfront (I will send you my address).


3. Designing


Please note that I will not be doing any major designing for these journals. I am most happy to offer suggestions and tips to make your journals more visibly pleasing, but I will not be creating designs/art from scratch. Please provide me with all of the resources that your journal will need, including:

  • Text: Pick font(s) from Google Fonts and specify size(s) if you have a preference.
  • Colors: Please provide the specific HTML color codes (#FFFFFF) you would like for backgrounds and text
  • Images: Send me the links to all the images, patterns, or textures you want to use.
  • Layout: If you have a design in mind, it is immensely helpful for me if you create a layout of how you would like your journal to look. The more detailed it is, the closer the final journal will look to your design.


4. Coding


Once the design has been finalized, I will start the coding. I will send you multiple live preview journals throughout the coding process so that you can always ask for any changes. All commissioners are encouraged to be as picky as needed so that everything is to their perfection.


5. Complete!


Once you are completely satisfied with the live version of your journal, I will finalize the code and send it to you through a zip file or through the premium content platform. I will include a reference sheet of all the features your journal has as well as an HTML guide for more complicated journals.


6. Support


If your journal ever has any issues (usually due to deviantART's periodic updates) or if you find a bug in your code, please let me know, and I will be more than happy to fix the problems. I am also perfectly willing to do small changes and tweaking to your code if you ever find yourself wanting some adjustments.





Journal skin commissions are finally open. :dummy:

I have to say, I've always been impressed by your journal CSS, and even for having a 'make your own' journal creator. I'd absolutely love to have a custom journal by you.

I was curious if you did theme coding for anything outside of dA? Like Storenvy, maybe?
Reply
:iconsimplysilent:
SimplySilent Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
I stick with dA skins since I'm very familiar with the site and its CSS. I've messed with Tumblr skins before, but never Storenvy (didn't even know about that site until right now :P).

OrigamiSoldier Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
lol, that's cool. Yeah, I forgot Storenvy is HTML. They have a simple CSS code box, but I've forgotten a lot about it.
But your skins are amazingly well done. Kudos!

How much for journal skin consulting?  I'm enjoying learning as I go and teaching myself about coding journal skins, but I would be willing to pay points to ask questions when I get really stuck.  A flat fee per project would be great but a la carte per question would be fine too. Is this something you'd be interested in?

I'm afraid that I'll probably be useless for the next week because I'm busy with other things, but I would certainly be happy to help you with any journal coding ventures. :)

Yeah. I opened commissions because there were a lot of people asking about them, but I kept prices rather high so that I wouldn't be overloaded. :)

Zara115 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I thought usually if you were good artists you should keep prices low because its more affordable and more people request so yea! xD
Yea I guess you would be overloaded.

:iconsimplysilent:
SimplySilent Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014
Yeah, back when I was trying to get as many commissions as possible, prices were pretty cheap. But then I got more than I could handle, so I bumped the prices back up. :aww:
