I am more of a middleman than a designer myself and tend to outsource the design side of things. I have found it difficult to find someone for the right price to design my email templates. There are plenty of good, affordable web designers out there but as you know, you need extra knowledge to create an attractive and usable email design.
Am I the only one in this situation? If not, perhaps the Campaign Monitor guys should consider creating a "Jobs request" forum. Or if you're a freelancer, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
You are definitely not the only one! We do hear fairly often from people who are looking for a designer to help them out with a newsletter design, especially designers used to Campaign Monitor.
If you are a designer who is looking for some design gigs like this, then please leave a comment below, because more people will be finding this thread later on looking for help too. If it turns out to be helpful and popular, we'll look at sticking a permanent jobs request forum in.
So who is going to kick things off?

Who we’re looking for:
We're seeking a expert designer-coder who knows everything about CSS Design and standards, abilities, limitations and hacks for both web and email clients templates for urban nightlife dj & dance website
The problem to solve:
Because of the web’s inherent lack of unified standards and compatibility issues among different browsers & email clients, we’re having a difficult time designing a hip & forward looking one-page-site which also needs to be converted into both an email newsletter, printer-friendly template and finally a simple text layout. So we’ve concluded 4 versions of the same template will be needed.
What we already have:
We’ve done the layout design already, which maybe the problem as it could be bad design & layout (so I’m also open to a new design layout and structure), but otherwise here’s what we’ll need:
Here are the four versions of our Newsletter that need both design and coding work:
1) HTML Email: must be coded with in-line CSS styles. Images and markup must be optimized for today’s popular email client standards (Outlook (2003 & 2007), Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail)
2) Web Template: Must use an external CSS stylesheet and be optimized and compliant across PC and Mac operating system and all main browsers. (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari)
3) Print Template: A print version of the newsletter will also be needed. This template should mirror the newsletter as close as possible and use proper text styling using a CSS stylesheet.
4) Simple Text template
If your interested in this gig please forward your portfolio work to email@example.com
Any updates on the possibility of starting a jobs forum?

Hey Whats up, im a webdesigner (TM Designs) and ive been looking for some customers, my work can be seen at www.Techmaster05.deviantart.com, i make proffesional designs but i do now know how to get my name out their so i can have more customers. I cant code html or any type of coding, i can only design. Im located in America (EST Time Zone). Not sure what I should do now so umm... hit me up if someone needs me, Thank You.
maybe the designers could 'proove' there design skill's AND increase their exposure by helping out commenting on technical enquiries!!!???? :)
21 comment's to I need a designer and quack quack a big fat 0 for some technical help!!
the scales of balance need adjusting me thinks!
I'm not sure how that'd help - design and technical expertises are very different things. There might be some overlap depending on the individual, but the idea of CM is that CM are the providers of technical wizardry, and the designers get to concentrate on what they do best - designing! :)
If you've some technical difficulties, it might be better to contact support.
