We are a very early educational technology platform with a fully functional mobile and web app already used by paying clients. We know what we're building and where we want to go with the technology.
What we've never had is a designer. Our website is basic and ugly, our mobile app is very functional but also very raw, our web app is even further behind than that. On top of that we're in the very early stages of defining our branding--color, logos, style, typography etc.
We're looking for a talented hungry designer who can think strategically about user experience AND pretty pixels. Initial work would likely focus on helping us refine the brand design elements along with a front-end website redesign (with conversion goals front and center) and a re-design of our web-app experience. The next set of work would focus purely on the mobile app UX/UI.
To be transparent, we're looking for long term collaboration as we grow the business. We don't really view this as a one-off project. We have a preference for a really hungry, motivated designer with something to prove. So if you want your work to actually show up in technology people are using, and you're flexible on accomplishing that goal, then we'd love to talk.
In terms of pricing we probably prefer a fixed per-project model, but we're flexible there.
