Web/Graphic UX/UI Designer

Ben Buie | 4/17/18

We’re looking for remote independent contract web and graphic designers (no teams) to help us on short-term and long-term projects. Let’s do a small project together and see how it turns out. If it goes well, we’ll have more work for you.

You should want to:

  • Be a creative powerhouse and design web pages and mobile views.
  • Build style guides for developers.
  • Design logos and other graphics for use on the web and social media.

You should have:

  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, Agile-like environment.
  • Experience with: web design, mobile design, user experience design, user interface design, logo design, email design, branding, copy
  • A keen eye for design and detail.
  • Experience with web and mobile design.
  • Expert time management skills and experience working remotely
  • An awesome portfolio you can’t wait to show us!

Our “Core Values” include:

  • Flexible, family-friendly work schedules and locations
  • Cutting edge projects, technologies, and frameworks
  • Cost effective technology (with business strategy in mind)
  • Responsive and transparent communication
  • Efficient projects and operations that increase productivity

In your response, please include answers to the following:

  • What is the best email to reach you?
  • What are your skills (tools, specialties, languages, frameworks, packages, plugins, apis, etc.) in order of expertise? Also, please include your years experience with each skill. The best way to answer this is to create a comma separated list (e.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc) with the 1st skill being the one you’re the best at, and then include the number of years experience after the skill in parenthesis (e.g. 1st (8), 2nd (5), 3rd (1), etc.). I hire based on skills, so the more extensive the list, the more likely you’ll bubble to the top of the list for this and other projects.
  • What would be an ideal first task I could send you? In other words, knowing the skills I’m looking for, what would be a task I could give you to really help your skills shine?
  • How do you describe yourself in a simple title? (e.g. “I’m a ________”)

    Hello,

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and submit my resume for your consideration.

    Offering creative design solutions to solve business problems is what I do best.

    Clients come to me with a design problem they are struggling with, and I partner with them to develop creative and flexible solutions that build brand awareness, promote product benefits, enhance the product’s professional appearance, and in turn contribute to sustained ROI. Cognizant of the importance of balancing the client’s needs and vision with practicality, I strive to develop solutions that are inviting and interesting but also mirror the client’s core values and mission.

    I am confident that you will be pleased by my ability to create original designs that capture the individual brand identity of each project. I will use my skills and experience to deliver on schedule, while meeting high standards.

    I would welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss my qualifications in more detail.

    “Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and creatively executing the best solution.” Ivan Chermayeff

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Hi there,

    My name is Stephen, and I’ve been doing custom web design & development work for 10+ years. I’m proficient in HTML (11), CSS (11), JavaScript (7), PHP (8), WordPress (9), Git (8), e-commerce (10), responsive design (8), the Adobe Creative Suite (11), digital marketing (10), and a number of other technologies. I’ve designed and built custom sites for nationwide corporations, non-profits, startups, educational institutions, and both B2B & B2C companies.

    With that said, I’d love to talk further and see how I can help you out. If you’d like to view some examples of my work, you can visit my full portfolio here: http://skstrategicdesign.com/work/

    In terms of an ideal first task… anything where I could build a website. From scratch or in a CMS.

    Also, I would describe myself as a “Front End Developer + Designer.”

    I look forward to talking further, and please let me know if there’s anything else I can provide in the meantime. Thanks!

    Stephen
