.... that have ever been interested in helping out on a campaign.
I met with two of the leads of a group called the 008 on Saturday and they asked me to produce their website. The 008 is a grass roots group loosely associated with Barack Obamas campaign efforts. This will allow us to do things that are a little more edgy. The target market are the young taste makers of California, New York and the swing states.
I suggested an MTV style site with a tight enough backend to be able to collect names, addresses, email addresses, send email blasts, upload high and low bandwidth video of events (everything from speeches to huge 008 events), have a blogging capability for some of the staff (some of which are actually journalists), and update copy on the site when needed.
I’m really excited about the change to finally be involved in something instead of just bitching about it. I didn’t start this thread to start a fight or political battle, but if anyone is interested in being involved, email and ill give you more info about what we need and what I can give you in return.
For people who only design, there is of course the site design which is important but also smaller things you can do like tshirt designs that don’t look like campaign tshirts, button designs, and dope flier and poster designs for events. Every little bit counts.
For the most part, the only payment I can provide is free entry into some of our events including Kanye West concerts (and others), after parties, etc. Our campaign efforts might not reach all the states, but don’t worry if you don’t live in California. Everyone will also receive site credits and a link to their own portfolio or site as well. I’m not sure what sort of leads that would generate but I would hope it would be many.
Again, this is just a chance to take some action if you’ve been thinking about it instead of arguing with people and doing next to nothing.
Thanks for readin’,
Sounds positive – interested to know more. I'll hit you up with an email.
sorry... emailed you
I really appreciate the interest thus far. I figure since so many passionate people like to let it rip on the message board when it comes to politics, you might as well divert some of that time toward changing things.
some might not have seen. *bump
