Successful entrepreneur looking for designer sidekick
over 7 years ago from G F, Owner
I'm a successful solo bootstrapped entrepreneur, been doing my own thing for 10 years. I'm at the point where I'm travelling the world, working only a few hours per week, only on projects I enjoy working on.
I'm looking for a sidekick to help me with UX/UI/front-end development (remote work). Like I said, I only work on my own projects (usually scratching my own itch, so these tend to be more fun). You take care of designing, enhancing, and implementing my vision, I'll market the hell out of it, and I promise this will be the best freelance work you'll ever do. If things work out, you should end up with freedom to do whatever you want (yes, I know this sounds infomercially (not sure if that's a real word), but it's true).
I'm looking for an experienced designer who can create polished, intuitive user interfaces. I prefer simplicity, usability, and conversion optimization over "design" that just seems cool (scroll-jacking, I'm looking at you!)
I'm not looking for beginners/intermediates please (or those who think they're good when they're really not - I guess I can't stop you guys from responding). I'm not looking for the cheapest work, I want things done right, with good clean design and best-practices. I know the value of a good designer, I'm willing to pay the price. At the same time, I don't want someone with a huge ego. Be open to learning, especially about marketing and growth - see this as an apprenticeship opportunity in entrepreneurship. I expect to learn from you as well.
But most importantly, take pride in your craft for god's sake! If you're not up for learning new things, challenging yourself, and doing the work to become a better person, don't reply.
No matter where you are in your career, if I think you're great, I'll work around your schedule. We can start off moonlighting, weekends, or whatever works for you. I don't have strict deadlines, just want to find the best person right now.
About me, I'm easy and fun to work with, and can offer you awesome opportunities as we build a trusting relationship.
As a first test project, we're going to redesign a neglected (yet cult-like-following site): http://www.exoticspotter.com (see, I told you fun projects)
Tell me why you'd be a great fit for this, with a couple of examples of your BEST work (I don't want to look through tons of links, please filter out the best stuff for me - and tell me why you think it's your best work).
I'll pick a handful of you to do a small test project (it takes about 3 hours, but you will be paid for your time).
Let's do this! Get off your butts and send me an email at email@example.com
