[OT] Where do you find good designers for your RoR projects?


#1

Hi,

Nowadays, the design of an application is nearly as important as its
functionality.
But - most good programmers are not automatically skilled designers.
Especially when it comes to the creation of fancy icons or small
illustrations.

So, where do you find good and affordable designers and illustrators for
your commercial (rails) projects ?

Cheers,
Ean

I couldn’t agree more. Fortunately so, if I may add.

An equally interesting question: Where does one find such for a free
software project? I have some very interesting ideas in mind. Finding
talented and enthusiastic developers is reasonably easy. But where does
one go to find someone with aesthetic skills and some design experience
(as opposed to a mere understanding of css)? It’s not like there’s
nothing in it for designers - being able to say “I did the design for
such or such successful project” should be worth something.

So is this a problem because there are no volunteers available, or is it
a matter of free-software “social networking” (finding the right forum)?

Apologies if this is considered thread hijacking :>
