    Exclamation [HIRING] Visual Overhaul on Website

    Greetings,
    My name is Ryan Griffin and I represent Botix Studios. Our product is currently in implementaton phase and we are looking for web graphic designers that can update our less than impressive website. Our market consists mainly of 18-27 year old males. We prefer graphics that follow the scheme of Medieval Fanstasy. An individual must have the following traits and characteristics to take on this project:
    • Access to all tools needed to complete the project
    • Access to TeamSpeak(FREE PROGRAM: www.goteamspeak.com) and headsets
    • Over the age of 18, or Guardian's Signature
    • Skilled in the creation of graphics

    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    Project Details:
    The above project entails that an individual creates high quality graphics that emphasize a creative and fun environment. As the title states we are looking for a complete site overhaul. Graphics for everything from the main page to the forums. An individual need not take on the whole project but is welcome to and promoted to take sections of the site and develop it individually. No infrastructure programming is needed. Our webmaster will make all judgement calls as he will be the one updateing the site in the future. You will be working with him directly over TeamSpeak(Program similar to Ventrillo).
    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    Project Responsibilities:
    All Individuals taking a project from our company are required to fullfill the project by the due date or they will be dismissed without compensation. There are no exceptions to this rule.

    All individuals will be given a basic concept for the artwork by Botix Studios as well as a due date. The individual will then give Botix Studios their fee for completing the project. Individuals will need to sign an official image rights release form that will be provided for you that needs to be scanned and emailed back to ryanchrgriffin(at)yahoo(com).

    Please note that sample art pieces will greatly increase your chances of being signed on to a project as well as higher payment per project.

    For more information please email me at ryanchrgriffin(at)yahoo(com).

    I'm a little wary of companies who have rules such as these. Although I can appreciate the need to have projects completed on time, I have often found that most clients will inject some level of either scope creep (adding features that were not originally specified) or modifications to the project to make the previous deadline difficult, if not impossible to meet.

    Any good programmer should allocate a specific amount of time for these types of events, but if you're setting the due date, and will not move it based on project modifications, the programmer has no choice but to freeze the project and say "that's not in the scope of things". This usually leads to tension between the client and the programmer.

    All projects should have some dynamic element to them, otherwise you end up with what you asked for, not what you want.

    Are you flexible with the due dates to allow for such events? If not, I'm assuming you're willing to pay a 50% deposit on the work to get started, as I would view a hard-line project due date as a very risky project.

    I can assure you that all due dates and payments are decided upon before the start of the project. As for a deposit; I am more than happy to give the individual a down payment in exchange for some samples(to assure we are recieving good quality). Once a contract has been drawn up for an individual it will not change. In the event that something else is needed to complete the project we will be responsible for it. These rules are not meant to scare any individuals looking for some work but to ensure that both sides know thier rules and that there are no complications.

    If you are interested in taking up one of our many projects please email met at ryanchrgriffin(at)yahoo(com), or if you have a question you want answered.
