Dear supercool underdogs, web socialists and hidden champions!

We are searching for an excellent Designer who would like to contribute to Supercool School.

Supercool School is a highly purpose-driven startup that was founded by a team of underdogs from Europe and India to change the world using the amazing powers of learning.
We? are bulding the first demand-based online learning marketplace that empowers people to request classes, join them as students or teach them using a simple webcam. Launching our alpha version on Facebook five months ago, Supercool School has attracted over 3.000 users that requested over 300 classes ranging from "How to start a business in China" to "Advanced Java" and "Thai Soup Recipes". We're going to have our global website launch in July 2009 and are already involved in a number of super secret projects with well known global organizations.
Because we believe in the power of learning. We believe that education is the answer to all the challenges that we face today. And even though we don't have all the solutions yet, we believe that they can be found in the hearts and minds of the people. So empowering them to learn and to develop their true potential means empowering the world to become all it can be: a better place for all of us.
