You've heard me comment on stuff on this the question is, do you
want to work with me and argue about design in person? (and, if someone
wants to proof the grammar in this email and let me know how poor it is,
feel free)

My two person design consultancy , Sliced Bread Design (
<> is looking
for people for short and long term contracts. Currently, we are looking
for folks who are interested in doing very detailed, low level design work
on the nitty gritty interactions of complex, interesting, interfaces. In the
future, we will also need folks who are good at high level conceptual work,
conducting contextual inquiries, and possibly participating in some client
meetings. All of the work is on a contract basis and can be done from the
comfort of your own home with intermittent meetings at our offices in either
Mountain View or San Jose (in California). We work on many consumer and
enterprise applications in the domains of web, voice, and desktop so we are
looking for people who have specific experience in these areas. Also, we do
our wireframing for web and desktop apps in HTML so knowledge of Dreamweaver
is a must. This article on Boxes and Arrows gives some insight into our
design approach:

If this seems like something up your alley, read our official description of
what we are looking for below and then follow the instructions at the end of
the post on where to reply.
