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 ?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!

Thank you Timothy, that's SUCH  a big help. I wish I could offer you something in return, but unfortunately we very rarely have roles in the US. Embarassed

Hi, Sam.

Since it sounds like you're looking for more of a visual designer than a person who codes his/her designs, I'd aim at online portfolio/feedback communities or places where designers can easily make quick, well-designed sites or landing pages. Here's a few to try:

  • Dribbble
  • Behance
  • Krop
  • AIGA
  • Flavors.me
  • Cargo Collective
  • Carbon Made
  • Tumblr

Learning how to effectively use Boolean searches on LinkedIn might be another good route. Hope this is helpful. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at allo[at]kathrynthomas[dot]org.

Hello Sam,

A new social network for creatives is 52, (http://fiftytwonetwork.com) and it might also be an option for you if you're up to the task of making a profile.

happy talent hunting,
Matthew
