• [Hiring] Designer/Front-end developer
    11 replies, posted
I'm looking for a [u]dedicated[/u], experienced, designer and front-end developer to help me develop a website. I had found a designer, but he declined due to outstanding commitments. Terms are negotiable but the two routes I had in mind are: 1. You give me a quote, I pay you to create the first phase. 2. You opt for stake in the company, stay with the company and help develop and maintain the front-end. We could probably negotiate a combination of the two. Please link to your portfolio in this thread. [b]NDA[/b] is required [i]sorry[/i] but I'm not the only one with stake in this project. I know that's a turn-off to most people, just putting it out there. The website is a social directory of sorts. If you have information regarding your typical rates, you can PM them to me or post them in this thread. Budget is around $1000. Willing to reevaluate based on going rates and quotes. I'm hoping that the front-end is done in roughly 3 months. I want the site to be ready for release in 6 months.
Sounds interesting, but do you have an estimated budget? Providing a budget will surely help you get more applicants. There's been a large amount of hiring posts before, and we have experienced most of them being a TF2 hat or ten bucks for the whole project. Experienced designers are not cheap, but atleast you get what you pay for.

I didn't mention budget since some designers prefer to be payed hourly. I guess to have something to worth with, lets just say $1000 for now, but again it's entirely negotiable.

Include that budget in OP and I'm sure this project will get some attention. It surely got mine, but I'm not available anytime soon, atleast not for more than ~2 hours / day, max. Got a ton of clients right now that I have to make some space for. But shoot me a message if you're interested either way or at a later time if you still haven't found someone and we'll make it happen.
Updated OP. And no this has nothing to do with hats or gaming in general. [editline]1st September 2014[/editline] Sure thing Sven, I'm hoping that the front-end is done in roughly 3 months. I want the site to be ready for release in 6 months. If you think you'll be able to work something in that timeframe then let me know :)
Bump, again this is for front end and design work. I'll be doing the backend.
Any more technical information you can give? Like what templating engine are you going to use for example (if you are going to use one) etc., might be nice for people to know. Since I'm way too unexperienced for this I can't speak for everyone though.

Do you have any preferences in how you want the front end designed? As in straight html5 built from the ground up or is it ok to use bootstrap, foundation or a prebuilt theme?
Yes to both Bootstrap and Foundation, no to prebuilt themes.
The original designer that was going to do this officially declined to work on the project due to outstanding commitments. I've got no other current prospects at the moment so please let me know if you're interested.
I realise that you've probably already found people for these positions but if someone is struggling to find a good front-end developer, I suggest reading this guide on how to hire front-end developers: https://www.cleveroad.com/blog/how-to-hire-front-end-developers#seniority-of-front-end-developers
