If you are in the NYC area (or will be) and match my $75 donation, I’ll:
Take you out for coffee and the appropriate snacks at my favorite shop (La Colombe)
Give you something I’ve designed for free (super secret, but trust me you’ll want it. If not, I’m sure you can ebay it for more than your donation)
We can talk about anything you want.
Well, almost anything.
I’m not sure how fun debating religion all day would be, but if you want to talk design, career advice, fashion, dating in NY, shopping, food, starting your own company, you can feel free to pick my brain.
No limit on how many people can jump on this. I’d say a huge table of young people discussing life over coffee is a good thing.
email me with your proof of donation and we’ll get things rolling
Bin and his partners have created an amazing, extremely useful tool to create beautiful Craigslist ads. Their project is now on kickstarter and only need $2,925.00 (thanks to my starter donation of $75!) to go to get funded and keep it free!
As some of you know, I recently moved into a new house and have been really happy with the move but prior to that, there were a few months of searching that made me want to tear my hair out.
I decided to do something about it so I’ve been working on a project with some friends to make Craigslist ads better and better-looking. This will be a free and easy form that anyone can use to create beautiful craigslist ads that have all the necessary information included and laid out so you know exactly what you’re getting.
What I thought would be a quick and simple exercise in design has grown to be much more and we’ve gotten obsessive with the details, paring everything down to just what you need. I’m hoping that once we solve real estate rentals, this will translate to other parts of Craigslist. I’m happy to announce that we’re close to launching it now.
If you choose to back this Kickstarter for Beautiful Craigslist Ads, know that it will be going towards server costs (EC2 baby!) and anything left over will go to Helen’s snack fund. It’d mean a lot to me if you reblogged and help spread the word!
Oh yeah, we made some cool stickers as part of the rewards:
