    Talented Graphic Designer/UI Designer required to join internet startup project.

    We have a core web application already developed and are seeking a talented and ambitious designer to join our small business team. This is not a salaried position, we are offering a stake in the business as remuneration.

    We have a development timeline of around 6 months to bring our project to market and have secured financial backing for marketing, running cost and deployment into 2 key market sectors.

    Our designer must be able to join our team and hit the ground running, adding immediate value to our team by developing our brand presence and associated user interface for our web application, which is currently under development.

    Our project has a clear route to financial reward and will be explained in full to suitable applicants.

    If you have an entreprenuerial streak, design skills that are second to none and a desire to be part of a company in which you are a key stakeholder and provide direction then we would like to hear from you.

    Location is not important for this role, we are based in South Yorkshire but you can be anywhere in the country.

    You could potentially be a contract designer seeking involvement in a project of your own or even working full time already and able to spare time outside of regular office hours.

    It is important to note that this is not a paid role initially. We are offering an equal stake in our business to the chosen candidate. It is an exciting project with secured business angel investment and we want to find a dynamic designer to complete our team.

    Key skills for this role are Photoshop, Illustrator (or your chosen design packages) and some demonstrable experience in development of brand logos/presence and web interface. Our software is in a very common, dynamic and growing UK market sector and it will be important to achieve differentiation from our peers.

    We have no direct competition in this marketplace, however significant challenges lie ahead, some of which will be addressed by a great user experience and a world class user interface.

    If you think you can add value to our project and assist in building a business in a very profitable market, we'd love to hear from you.

    Contact in the first instance should be through email -

    well if you have secured business investment then you can/should pay the graphic designer because at this moment in time an equal stake in nothing (you have no business income yet) means the graphic designer gets nothing :rolleyes:

    No direct competition also means there could be no need for said 'business' or that there is competition via other businesses as part of a larger portfolio.

    And a yahoo web address doesn't exactly add confidence in my opinion.
  3. One thing you don't mention is expected time commitments.

    I, and probably other DF users too, would be interested in how much time you expect the designer to give you in return, as well as the number of shares in the company, the type of internet startup/software, and if possible a trading name so we can look at the business before contacting you.
