A Fun Job For A Strong Graphic Designer

In two and half weeks, I am going to deliver a web 2.0 keynote titled:

New York’s Web Industry From 1995 to 2008: From Nascent to Ascendant

As many know, we created a wiki and I asked people to contribute ideas to it.

And they did.  NYC’s web history has been outlined on this page. And we’ve got a bunch of great images on this page.

I’ve got a pretty good idea of what I want to talk about and all of this user generated content has been incredibly helpful. Thanks everyone.

Now I need to hire a graphic designer to help me tell this story with a visual presentation (possibly delivered right on the web). I’m also open to using keynote or powerpoint.

Here’s what I want:

1) a person who can take my ideas and make them come to life on the screen. there will be little to no text in the visual part of this presentation

2) someone who has the time over the next two weeks to put this together. i have to submit the presentation to the web 2 conference on friday, sept 12th

3) a NY native who has watched the internet industry develop over the past 15 years.

This is a paid gig. But more than anything I want someone who is as into this topic as I am.

If you are interested, please send me an email. Click the contact link on the upper right of this blog to do that.

    I just pinged a great Brooklyn based designer I know who recently broke off from a big firm to start his own shop – he’s knee deep in the tech industry and very talented, hopefully he emails you soon enough to make the cut.LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

    Fred, here’s a resource that is off the hook for outsourced design. Amazing work by dozens of designers, all in a week or under. Top shelf. http://99designs.com/

    Two, maybe three, of those images are distinctly New York City. The rest could have come from anywhere.I know why Minneapolis and Raleigh/Durham have “Silicon Valley” derivative names, but why NYC? That’s not Big Apple, that’s small potatoes.When did “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” become “If you can’t handle Sunnyvale, we’ve got opera.”The Yankees swagger even when they’re losing to Cleveland….
