It seems that flywheel may be able to be of assistance. Evan,
who we have had on board for about 5 months now, is a very well
versed developer in general with a deep knowledge of both
frontend and application/backend development. He has e. He
has become increasingly familiar with the drupal 7 theming
system as of late and has been working with me on some pretty
major theming projects. While I have been deeply involved in
many drupal themeing projects, I am quite busy with both
frontend development and business development. Evan, on the
otherhand, is in the middle of a break between projects and
would be great to have collaborating with you guys.\
Conversely, we are in need of someone with a good amount of
nonprofit marketing experience. We are assembling a team to
work with a CDC in Youngstown with a very fascinating history,
who is involved in some amazing local food projects. We are
working with them to both provide collaboration infrastructure
and some powerful backend functionality, but additionally an
entire marketing, publicity and design package. One person on
the team, who was going to head up on marketing and publicity,
is also one of the core organizers of brite winter festival and
may not have time to fill his initial role. We would love to
see about working with you guys on this, if you would have time
in the near future.
Talk to you soon,

Our company recently hired a front-end development company to theme
the Drupal site we built-out for our client. Long story short: it
seems pretty clear to me that they don't really know Drupal (and might
not even like it!), nor do they understand its nuances, best
practices, template/theming system, etc. We thought we'd be using
these guys for all our projects but now it seems more and more that we
may need to change direction.
Furthermore, we're not sure we can outsource this critical part of the
process to anyone, really. The steady communication and close
collaboration it takes to execute a theme appropriately (from PSDs/un-
themed Drupal site to a fully themed/functional Drupal site) seems to
merit an in-the-same-city/often-in-the-same-room working relationship.
So basically right now we're reevaluating our options, trying to
determine the best way forward. We might:
A. look for a new front-end development group that truly and actually
specializes in Drupal
B. call-up one of our developer friend who's very knowledgeable, pay
him to familiarize himself with Drupal, and pay him to handle our
C. seek to contract a front-end Drupal specialist via the Meetup
Once again for clarity's sake: we're not looking to hire a designer.
Our art director is fantastic at that. What we need is someone to take
care of translating her designs to functional themes for the sites
that we build-out.
If anyone has any thoughts on a way forward, or is interested in
option C, please let me know!
