I’m looking for a young web designer. This is for paid contract work. The position will be to help design and implement the front-ends for a number of web properties including DavidCrow.ca, DemoCamp.com, FoundersandFunders.org, StartupNorth.ca, StartupIndex.ca, StartupIndex.ca, etc. Basically, the majority of the work is visual design and front-end web implementation. The goal is to to help design and build visual presence and update the front-end implementation of these sites. (Yes, I’ve started to look at HayStack and 99designs.com and other sites).
- The designer needs to have an online portfolio. The portfolio should include examples of both web and mobile-optimized design.
- Experience creating, maintaining and deploying WordPress/Drupal/Moveable Type/etc. themes.
- Experience with skinning/theming hosted online applications, e.g., EventBrite, GuestListApp, MindTouch, etc.
- Experience implementing front-end code in MVC frameworks, e.g., Django, Rails, ASP.NET MVC, CakePHP, etc.
My preference would be to find a student or recent graduate. I’d like to help find the next Scott Boms, Ryan Feeley, Matt Brett, Dave Shea, Daniel Burka (yep, they’re all Canadian).
So if you’re a young Canadian designer, that is looking for some contract work, fill out the form below.
