Check the job board for more openings or post a job if you have one.
I work as a professional video editor both for a company and as a freelancer. I'm in need of a web designer who can help me redesign my personal website from the ground up. I will be hosting the website through Cargo Collective, so familiarity of the site is a must. I have many loose ideas for the redesign, so I'd also like someone who can not only take my ideas and interpret them, but improve upon them with their own unique vision and know how.
Experience is preferable, but I'll once again stress that I am looking for someone who can bring fresh and new ideas to the table. So if you're in school, or just out of school and have a strong portfolio don't hesitate to apply, but please no amateurs. Either way you must have sample websites, or currently up and running websites you've worked on ready to show. I'll obviously be incorporating a lot of video into my site, including a new demo reel and older videos I've done, so you should have a strong knowledge of video based web design and up to date methods of video encoding for streaming and embedding. I'm especially interested in Web-M, VP8 Flash, and HTML5 so please be knowledgeable in these areas as well. Familiarity with Tumblr layouts and functionality is a plus, but not necessary.
Compensation will be discussed, but after the initial design & setup I'd like to be able to work with you on any updates/tech questions and hire you for any other future projects. This is important: please be in or around the NYC area so I can work with you one on one and be able to meet and discuss changes with you. If you're confident that we can do this without meeting, i.e. through video chat, then provide me a convincing argument in your response. If you have any specific questions or would like example websites, I can provide that before hand. Also be aware that I'd like the whole process to be completed within a month's or so time, so reliability and quick turn around is a must. Hopefully I'm not asking for a lot here, I'd just like my website to stand out from the rest. Look forward to hearing from you.
