Brian Zikmund-Fisher (faculty in UM Health Behavior & Health Education and UM Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine) is seeking a freelance graphic designer with particular experience/interest in information visualization for a series of jobs related to an ongoing research project on communicating medical test results.
Tasks will include creating dozens of number line graphics and other static data visuals that embody various specific combinations of design factors (e.g., color gradients, segmentation of the line into particular categories, non-linear scaling of data to position). Ideally, the candidate will be able to iterate with the research team over the next 2 years to refine the designs based on our testing.
Please submit a letter outlining relevant expertise (especially expertise regarding quantitative data visuals) to Dr. Zikmund-Fisher.

We are a group of UofM business students working on a mobile application and web interface aiming to change the way people post issues found in the buildings they frequent. FixUp aims to bridge the communication gap between landlord and tenant, student and school, and more.
We are looking for a graphic designer to create some sample screen shots of the application so we can give potential users and investors a better idea of how the application will look. Compensation is flexible and would ideally be paid per screen/pdf page made. We would like to have one or two sample screens made in the next few days, and maybe a few more made over the next few weeks. We have a document that explains the UI and flow of the app so creating the sample screens should not be too difficult.
Note that app experience is not necessary as we are just using these mockups as explanation tools and the goal is not to use them in any software application.
If interested, send relevant samples of work to Eliot Silverman email@example.com or Danny Agar firstname.lastname@example.org . Work samples can be in a portfolio format, but individual files or links are also fine (as long as they are explained).
Deadline: fast deadline for submission is 7/15/14 at 5pm, and the extended deadline is Friday August 1st.
Compensation: $30 per basic image if they are completed by Wednesday 7/16/16 at 11am, and $10-$15 per image (or an overall flat rate) for the rest of the design work moving forward. It should be noted that apps general look the same from page to page so once a few images are created it should be easy to replicate with slight adjustments.
