Know a Good Freelance Designer?
My search for a suitable freelance web designer to assist with a couple of upcoming projects has thus far come up empty. To help things along, I thought I'd put out an appeal here on the blog and see if any recommendations come in.
The most important requirement is quality of work. I'm looking for someone with a clean, contemporary design aesthetic. To clarify, a style of design that has ample white space, attention to typography and avoids skeuomorphic elements. Something not quite minimalist, but tending in that direction.
Familiarity with mobile-first responsive design is strongly preferred. Also, no agencies or overseas folks. I think the logistics of an overseas collaboration would be too much of a hassle, as sitting in on client meetings will likely be required. Canadians are great as time zone and cultural context aren't an issue.
Finally, a squared away and responsible person who meets deadlines is also highly desirable. That probably goes without saying, but if you know a great designer who is a flake, they probably aren't a good fit in this instance.
So, do you know anyone? If so, please let me know.
