Hello there! Allow me to briefly introduce myself. I am a designer... a graphic designer, an interactive designer... I do layouts in Photoshop for large websites, for small WAP-sites. I do icon design. I illustrate in Illustrator. I sketch with a pencil. I animate. I come up with concepts for games. Basically, I'm a designer. I've been doing design professionally in one form or another for the past 14 years. I'm passionate about what I do, I enjoy doing it, and I always strive to do the best I can in all the work I produce. That's what I am and who I am. What I am NOT is a developer or a coder. I've dabbled a bit in HTML and CSS, and even a bit of complex Flash ActionScript, but generally, I just end up tearing my hair out with frustration when I try, because I can't do it very well. I know I'm not a coder, but it frustrates me when I have an idea that I can't implement because of a lack of technical skills. What's this all got to do with anything I hear you say? Well, unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll all have heard about the great new apps and games that you can get on your shiny new iPhones and iPod Touches. Well, to get to the point, creating games and mini-apps is something I have been wanting to get into for a long time. This was for the Mac OS, long before the iPhone came along. Now with the iPhone SDK released to the general public, my desire to do this is even stronger, and I have a stack of great ideas that I want to bring to life on the small-screen! I've sketched out a few of these ideas, but I know that without the coding-skills, my sketches ultimately mean nothing. So this is where you come in. What I am wanting to do is to hook up with a clever programmer who's familiar with coding for the iPhone, but who perhaps feels that they need a designer to come up with some ideas on what to code. Or if you already have an idea, maybe you need a designer to produce some graphics for it. Or even if you already have an app or game built, maybe the UI needs sorting out. In the short-term, one of us could help the other out on a project already in-progress. Longer-term, we'd collaborate on our own work together, maybe after-hours outside of our day-jobs. The ultimate goal, in an ideal world, would be for us to do this full-time, as a living. Basically, what I'm looking for is a programmer who is in need of a designer, because I am a designer who is need of a programmer. You scratch my back, I scratch yours, and together we can have non-itchy backs... or something... ;-) No, but seriously, teaming up with the right person will ultimately benefit us both. With two of us working together, we'll each bring our own unique special skills to the table, and the results will be twice as good as what each of us could achieve on our own. I want to stress that any collaboration will be completely 50-50 equal, in terms of work done (although very different disciplines), investment put in, and the subsequent returns for all that. In conclusion, if what I've said here sounds like something you could be interested in, then have a look at an "advert" I put together saying pretty much what I've said here already, but just more "formally": http://www.nothowitlooks.com/iphonedev/ My contact details are on the URL above. I look forward to hearing from you guys... Thanks for your time, Brett Archibald.
