    Honest question: Why is it wrong that I'm looking for someone with talent to do work? Did I say I wanted work done for free? No - in fact I said that I value good design and am willing to pay for it. I'm well aware that good designers don't come cheap.

    Sorry I rubbed some of you the wrong way. Even though half of you think this was a joke, I got some incredible responses from talented designers who saw this as what it is - an interesting opportunity.

    I think you're misunderstanding the post. I'm not looking to give equity in exchange for work. I'm looking to pay, and pay top-dollar to work with the right designer. I would never expect a talented designer to work for equity - especially with a stranger.

    Once a designer starts working with me, and sees that I'm legit, and wants to work with me on an equity basis, then we can look into that. But that will all come naturally through a trusting relationship built over the long-term.

    Fair point. The thing is, I'm not really looking for someone who's looking for a "job", but the job boards are definitely worth testing out.

    Wes,

    I guess I can see how my post may come off as "jack-assy". The problem is a lot of "business/idea guys" are BS and you need to be skeptical about working with them, so can't blame these guys.

    I'm just throwing the opportunity out there and seeing what happens. You gotta test stuff out, and even though a lot people commented this is the wrong way to approach it, I've already received a ton of great responses via email, so I'm happy with the outcome so far.

    Anyway, I commend you for stating your honest (although unpopular) opinion.

    That actor looks NOTHING like Steve Jobs. C'mon, couldn't they have at least recruited a better suited actor?

    I suppose the design is nice, but usability is awful
