Full Article Attached Mozilla Foundation Seeking Designer for $1,000,000 Mozillion Fundraising Site

Tuesday April 27th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation is looking for a graphic designer to design its new online donations site, with the aim of raising US$1,000,000 over the next year. So far almost US$100,000 has been donated online and the Foundation is keen to build on this success with its Mozillion campaign, which borrows from the recent Internet fundraising efforts of several US presidential candidates. Interested designers must submit a Mozillion logo, homepage mockup and a design for one internal page of the campaign site by midnight Pacific Daylight Time on Friday 7th May.

#6 Agreed - this is an fairly impossible request

I hate to complain, as I'd love to contribute to the Mozilla cause, but this is a losing request. It's almost impossible to design something that actually works /well/ for a particular site without critical items like:

- site content (what's going in the page? What form / media is it in? etc.) - target audience: is this aimed at people who use Mozilla products? People who don't? The general population? Geeks?

I agree with the earlier poster who complained about the timeframe, too. Designers, especially designers who care about designing sites that achieve their goals, cannot simply snap their fingers and make a web site appear, no more than a Mozilla developer can snap his fingers and create a web browser from scratch.
