Large scale survey: SUS, NPS or ...?

I have an opportunity to survery a very large number of users before the release of a new version in January. I was considering using the net promoter survey but then read some articles that were critical of NPS. The release is on a particular page of a web app and will grab the users while using that specific tool. I've used SUS in the past but typically with internal users that are not critical enough.

Visual UI Designers - where are they all hiding?

My job as a recruiter within this very specific area is made somewhat harder by the fact that it's becoming increasingly difficult to find fresh candidates for the roles I have to offer. Surely there's got to be more cracking Visual Designers out there looking for work?

As a fellow recruiter, or even as a generally helpful person, can anyone out there direct me to websites (such as behance) where users are free to browse profiles and contact their owners? Or perhaps, does anyone know of any good online communities of user interface designers ?
