Auction #21 – KidLit Cares: Website Design and Development from Designer Sammy Yuen

Welcome to KidLit Cares, an online talent auction to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Superstorm Sandy. KidLit Cares was started by the very awesome Kate Messner, but I’m taking over Round 2. Agents, editors, authors, illustrators and other generous people have donated various services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with donations being made directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. You can read more about KidLit Cares here.

Now, on to the auction!

Sammy Yuen is a print and illustrator/interactive designer who lives in New York City.

Sammy is offering a full website design and development for an author or artist in publishing. Design and Development includes logo if necessary, simple elegant design, mobile interface, content management system, installation, SEO, social media integration, audio and video integration, Google analytics and 6 months of basic website maintenance. Note: This package does not include domain and hosting.

Opening Bid: $100

This auction closes at 10pm Eastern Standard Time on November 23. Any bids placed after that time will be void.

If you’d like to bid on this auction, check the current high bid and place a higher bid by leaving your name and bid amount in the comments, along with some way to contact you (email, FB or Twitter…I’m not fussy.) Winners will be notified when the auction ends and should be prepared to make an online donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in the amount of the high bid at that time.  After you’ve made your donation, you’ll forward your receipt to me, and I’ll put you in touch with the person who donated the service you won so that the two of you can work out the details about how and when.   All services will be provided at the convenience of both the person making the donation and the auction winner, but this should happen within three months of the auction’s end unless something else is agreed upon by both parties.

Good luck and thanks for your help!

    $330—I’m a designer myself and I want to hire Sammy. He is THAT good and this is a steal–c’mon, people, don’t let me get this for so little. I don’t even deserve it! (But will happily take it).

  16. Can you confirm that we can use this for a redesign and not only a website from scratch? And is Sammy working in wordpress?
