I don't use my blog as a job board very often, but what the hell. If you know of a good web designer (someone who actually knows CSS and isn't afraid of dealing with a template-based content management systems) or if you are one and live in the Bay Area... please let me know.

A company that I do a lot of work with is looking for someone who can work on a contract basis to redesign several new and existing news and technology oriented web sites.

A good candidate will be local to the San Francisco Bay Area and have existing on-line work as well as references.

Hmm. A web designer local to the San Fran area. You may as well have posted your email on Usenet.

hey jeremy - how about developing an XML format ala RSS for job openings?

BTW, I will challenge your thinking about needing a web developer "in the bay area". You're assuming that the only way a developer can be effective is if they're sitting right there. We have web developers (thousands of them) doing productive work all over the world _but they do it where they are_ . If you're interested in how this works, I'd love to explain it.

i disagree with Marty above - the job spec appears to involve a few clients and redesigning old sites - one would think that a degree of client interaction is required, and nothing beats face-to-face meetings when doing this sort of work.

You can't outsource ALL tech jobs to India you know...

(There was also a "JobML"(?) floating around some years ago, but I can't find it now).

It's not *my* thinking, it's the thinking of the person who's hiring
(I'm just the messenger).

He's basing this mostly on experience. He has local and remote
workers today and doesn't want to deal with the overheard of remote
communicaion for something that's so visual and iterative in nature.

The important question is whether it works nearly as well as sitting
down next to a real person to tweak things in realtime. Have you
figured out how to eliminate the time gaps?

Well. The idea is you will have your site done in india only if you have no money.

$200 for a site is damn funny even in Russia (are we poor country?)

If economy on quality is your policy - right that no one wants to deal with you.

# Jeremy Zawodny said:

Where's that $200 figure come from? Or India?

I'm confused.

Yep, take a look at scriptlance.com (and all cheap clones - I can send you a list via e-mail). The quote is taken from there.

Hi Jeremy,

I am a web designer based out of New Delhi, India, very keen to work on any international web designing assignments.

Please confirm if for the assignments you are talking about, one necessarily has to be physically present there in Bay Area?

Also, I would humbly like to bring to the notice of everyone who has posted a comment here that not all Indian web designers compromise on quality when quoting lower prices in comparison to our counterparts anywhere else in the world.

My firm, Creativatorz, is quite a new Indian web design company, but we have done some work that we are proud of and our clients are extremely happy with the same. I can get my potential clients personal references from my existing client's base on the quality of our web designing work.
