Entrepreneur looking for a Designer for long-term partnership
A good knowledge of HTML, CSS and an image editing program of your choice (GIMP, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
A minimal amount of PHP/MYSQl. We only use PHP/MYSQL for optional templating of sites, or for integration of various credit card services. Designer should have knowledge of install common programs such as Wordpress and OSCommerce onto sites.
This is very simple design work we receive. Customers usually only want just a very simple site outlining there business and products it offers. Many do not expect a very robust visual experience. Our company specializes in cheap packages for customers. We offer a $199 site design package that gives our customers 5 simple pages. Our next package is $399, and that includes a store and 10 pages. Most of our customers will use Linkpoint credit card services. The Designer we hire will receive a % of this cost, and that is based upon the skills of the designer, ect. The designer will not have to handle any other aspects of the business, he will receive the project information in a nice email, and then will proceed to work on it. No troubleshooting, not talking to customers, etc, unless the designer would like to be more involved. The designer will receive at the beginning 5-10 projects a week, and this will increase to 10-20 projects per week, with the possibly of more increase. This is currently just intended as a summer of 2007 job, however it is very possible (and likely) that if a good relationship between the designer and the business a full time contract could be established, and a long term relationship results.
