Freelancer looking for some team-mates to help with workload.
My name is Spencer, and I’m a freelance web/graphic designer. I've recently come across more work than I can handle on my own and am currently looking for a team of equally as capable designers and developers to help take on any extra projects that come my way. If chosen, these are free leads for you. All you’d need to do is be punctual and available when needed. Unlike most companies, compensation won’t be at a set base for every project. There will be a minimum 50% take home on your side, which will be negotiable depending on the project. If we have a client in need of a logo for $150. Your split would be $75.
I’m looking for people of all skills. Specifically at the moment, I’m looking for a couple of logo designers, a character designer, a seasoned clothing-specific graphic designer, a web designer/developer, and a UI designer. Though, please feel free to apply should you think you have any skills to bring to the table that I haven’t mentioned.
Fluent English and proper literacy is a must, as well as an external portfolio. (Outside of oDesk)
Those brought on at this point will be top tier as we grow and develop into a small business together.
As far as your cover letter-
I’m not interested in whether you've gone to school or not, or for how long. I don’t care the length of time you've been doing what you do and I don’t want a resume. I’m not interested in Generic Joe, the template-based web designer. I’m looking for a team, not employees. I want people who I will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and grow with. I want to see your personality, humour, and emotions. I want to know why you've chosen to do what you do, and what inspires you. Show me what makes you unique.
With that said. I thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with all of you.
