    Hello,

    I am working as a volunteer for the free project PC-BSD (www.pcbsd.org), and we currently need a few graphic designers. I was wondering if you could tell me where I could find good graphic designers to join us as volunteers. The initial work would be illustrations, wallpapers, and visual identity. If you know some one, please get in touch with us: http://www.pcbsd.org/?p=contact
    Thanks in advance,

    Charles.

    You could see if the guy that did the FreeBSD illustrations wanted to take a bash at it since you're FreeBSD based :)

    I know there are some awesome graphics guys on here too though (where are you hiding resilient?? )

    You're right. He never replied to me though...
    But he seems to be a good professional.

    I would help out, but lately it seems I don't have time for freeness, if you know what I mean. It kinda sucks

    Yeah, I would have gladly helped where I could have a few months ago, but I'm trying to find a job doing graphics design or IT. I'd gladly give critisism on whatever work has been done, constructive of course.

    Thank you guys. I myself did the web site: http://www.pcbsd.org/ and the "artwork": http://www.pcbsd.org/?p=artwork

    But I'm not a graphic designer as you can see :(

    The artwork on the site already is good in my opinion. I'm sure if you put an announcement on the front page/news stating you want users to contribute with some graphics you'd get some interest :)

    I wouldn't change all that much. It's very clean, easy to manuever, and welcoming.
