Seeking Freelance Designers to Customize the Mimbo Family

Since the free version of Mimbo launched back in August, I’ve been getting 3-4 queries a week from users willing to pay for small customizations. Now since Mimbo Pro has launched, I’m getting customization requests for both themes. Unfortunately with a full-time job and all free hours dedicated to Mimbo Pro, I have no time for any new side-work.

What I’d love is to establish a referral relationship with 1-2 theme designers interested in this kind of ongoing paid work. All the obvious skills would apply: strong CSS knowledge, PHP experience, design experience and intimate familiarity with the WP Codex. I’m not looking for any kind of compensation in exchange.

Please either respond in the comments section or send me an email with a porfolio link. I’m always looking to meet more people in the WP community and get familiar with their work and availability.

    Hi
    I am interested…

    My best wp theme customisation examples would probably Kick2Kick and WotUThink. Not 100% finished but pretty much…

    Darren I think you should consider incorporating a forum on your site. Pretty much like Justin Tadlock’s site where he used bbPress to accomodate a forum on the site.

    I think you have to consider working out the business side of this. There is a big IF that a lot of people consider when taking the entrepreneural jump. But maybe you could take a note from how Brian Gardner is doing with his Revolution Theme. And he’s designing skin for phpBB too nowadays.

    We have yet to maximize WP. And you are one on the frontlines right now with MIMBO. Heck, if I’m a graphic designer, I will take on the challenge. But I’m foremost a coder and an entrepreneur threading the water of internet marketing and ministry.

    Hmmm. If I could just get my son to cut his WarRock game stuff and divert his creativity to web design…. (would take a miracle).

    I’ve actually had an active forum since back in November ;)

    As for the entrepreneurial side of things, I’m pretty consumed with my full-time job and when I get free time I usually dabble with the blog. Releasing Mimbo Pro was kind of a lark. I don’t know where it will lead, if anywhere at all. That’s about as entrepreneurial as I have time for right now, and the rest will be referred.

    Hey, I am interested in the offer. I am setting up http://XLVista.com based on your design, but I just started customizing it yesterday and dint get much to it.
    My AV website would probably be the best link I could provide you. Am pretty good at designs and PHP. So if you are interested shoot me an email.

    Thanks.
