ISO graphic designer and user-recruitment firm

Greetings, IxDA! I've been plying my personal network for these roles, but
without much luck so far... A client of mine needs to fill two roles: a
graphic designer, and an organization who can find and recruit users in a
certain demographic. These are likely to be short-term contracts, and
they're needed soon -- within the next month or so. The client is located
in the Boston area, but that doesn't necessarily matter, as these can be
done remotely.

Graphic designer role: The client needs a good visual identity.

What font organizer do you use?

I used to be a big Corel Draw fan, and while I've moved on to Adobe over
the years, I remember they had one really helpful utility - Bitstream Font
Navigator. I have the Adobe CS3 Web Premium suite, but haven't seen a
similar Font organizer/navigator in that package. Maybe it's there but I
haven't been able to find it. Can anyone recommend a good Font organizer
for Windows?

the flaws in products they themselves think are badly designed. It's
best to think of it as a customers point of view of things that just
don't work.

the folder (and desktop) metaphor should be deprecated

decades ago, when computing was becoming more mainstream and personal
(Macintosh, PC revolution, firsts GUIs, ...), the desktop metaphor was
invented. This arguably helped make friendlier a computer to new people.
