Graphic Artist / Skinner Needed!
I've been developing a carputer interface application and I am in desperate need of a skinner. The graphic artist I was working with just quit because of time issues. This is not vaporware. The application is nearing the end of the development cycle after about three years of designing and implementing it and it should be functionally complete sometime in August and and ready for release by December.
Skinning the application will be no small project. At least 200 individual files will be needed for all the controls used by the program. The skin, however, is just image files, it does not allow configuring the layout of the different images, they are all hard coded in at specific locations in the program itself. This compromise had to made to achieve the level of usability and complexity that the program delivers, but should make skinning an easier process. The program is based in Direct3D and takes advantage of the transparency and animiation abilities of 3D cards as well as real-time resizing of the skin to the proper resolution so only a single skin will have to be developed.
This will be a commercial software application. It is backed by an LLC started for the project and already has a partnership with an established car audio company to deliver a hardware bundle for the software. The skinner will recieve a percentage of the profits made by the application for developing it.
I'm not going to post more about the program online until it is ready to ship, but it does have many capabilities above and beyond whats available now.
I will expect at least 10 hours a week of work for this project from the skinner and only want canidates who are familar with carputers. Do not bother applying if you are not ready to devote a significant portion of your free time to help make this project a reality.
If you are possibly interested in developing the skin for this program, please submit a preview of any relevant work you have done in the past to [email protected] This can be skins for other carputer applications or for other things like video games or any project involving digital images. I will go into a lot more detail about the program's capabilities and show a short demo to successful applicants as well as describe the complete expectations and benefits of the position.
