Have you tried an add in the local paper?

This way it is considered spam, and will probably be deleted or worse.

i hear you wildrose... but i dont consider it spam. im looking hire someone not sell them anything. i figure since the project calls for a GUI designer/artist and someof these guys here are kick-ass, i might as well see if they need a job.

K a couple questions...

1. How much will the job pay?
2. How much work do you want put into it?
3. How fast do you need it?
4. Will royalties be involved? (IE; Being payed a certain amount everytime the skin is downloaded)
5. Examples of what you would like it to look like?
6. By working "In house" that means you have to commute to a certain location? Why can't the person work from their own location?

I'd be interested if i had a couple more things to go off of. Like the design of the game...if you want the sprites added into the skin. What type of skin you are looking for. The work hours... blah blah blah...

hey skryingbreath... thanks for the reply.

1. How much will the job pay?
depends on your skillz.

2. How much work do you want put into it?
depends on the designs we come up wid.

3. How fast do you need it?
looking to hire asap.

4. Will royalties be involved? (IE; Being payed a certain amount everytime the skin is downloaded)
no royalties but we will offer a bonus plan reflecting the games performance (typical of game gigs)

5. Examples of what you would like it to look like?
futuristic, clean, classic, hi-fi stereo stuff... etc.

6. By working "In house" that means you have to commute to a certain location? Why can't the person work from their own location?
we work in a team environment and there's lot's of interaction between the group. our office is in SF.

this is a great opportunity IMO and yes it's a real job.

will you look to relocate specific person if you cannot find any suitable applicants locally?
have you not tried agencies, local ads, colleges, universities?
think most of us here would jump at the chance lol, I know I would, only problem is I dont live in SF, willing to think about relocating if the package is good
will send cv and previous work if answer to above is a go heheh

hi slob. yes we can easily go to agencies and universities but i've always been a proponent to going to the "source". i've always had good luck finding people thru these types of channels.

send me some links or copies of your work and we can talk offline. PM me...

hi quad... it's cause we work in a team environment. there's lots of trial and error type stuff in this type of work dynamic. you're in washington state eh? why not make the move to SF?

we're still developing the product and unfortunately we cannot share the particulars out in the open. if anyone is really serious about this opportunity, i suggest PM me and we can set up a time to meet. nda's will need to be signed before i can show any materials. (this is typical in the video games biz).

what i can tell you it's for current and next gen platforms and IS a high profile project.

what about people who don't follow simple grammar rules like capitalize the first letter of a sentence and proper nouns?
(or use "skillz" as a word).

Freedom of speech on an open forum, can't stop people from saying what they want in response to your (and yes, it really is) spam.
