UX/IA student or junior professional needed for health site/app start-up

From: Lorie P.
Sent on: Friday, March 23, 2012 11:57 AM

I am looking for a talented, creative UX/IA specialist who wants to beef up their portfolio:  I need your help in creating the optimal interface and information architecture for a health- and fitness-related site and app. I’m seeking someone with some professional experience in the field to consult with me (my background is 20+ years creating all sorts of content, 16 of those working digitally) to create:
  • a general taxonomy for the site and its related app
  • a basic UI for key pages and interactions (not every page/interaction/task needs to be spec’d out)
  • create wireframes for key pages and interactions (this is the final deliverable I need, including files that will enable a designer – if you’re not a designer too – to mock-up more polished pages)
The goal of the site/app is ambitious, though because my budget as a self-funded start-up is quite limited, the scope of the job would be quite finite – perhaps 20 hours total. We can talk this through if you are interested. I am fine working with someone less experienced or even a talented student, given that my budget is not what I would like it to be right now.

I am on the west side so am hoping to find someone semi-local so we can meet. If you're not nearby, I am willing to drive on weekends and expect you will do the same, periodically. We can do a lot by email, Dropbox, etc., but I need someone who’s willing to meet at least occasionally through the process to nail things down and talk them through a bit. I am hoping to find someone who wants to participate in the defining of the IA, and even lead a lot of it, not just take my direction.
You will be required to sign an NDA and keep your work on this project confidential.
I would be hoping to start working with someone starting in early April and have finished wireframes no later than the end of May. I am working now with a designer to create a logo/branding, the look and feel of which you’d integrate into your work.
If you are interested in hearing more, please email me at [address removed] with your resume and a link to your portfolio and we can set up a time to talk.

Thanks for reading my ad and getting in touch!
