User Experience Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for user experience researchers and experts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am a software developer who likes to develop iPhone apps in his free time. I have found that being not very skilled (or maybe talented) in graphic design, it takes a lot of time to create the designs for the app that I could rather spend inventing something in the area where I am at home (i.e. the development).

I was thinking of partnering up with some guy(s) that would help me refine the design allowing me to concentrate on the rest. Obviously, having this as a hobby an being on a tight (almost non-existing) budget, the only thing I can offer is a part of the profit. So who I am looking for is not a freelancer, but more of a collaborator.

Where do you think I have the best shot trying my luck ?

So what type of graphics are you looking for? And what type of apps do you have? Are any in production? –  culvi Apr 20 '11 at 20:55
    
@culvi The first one (iosapps.at/energytracker) was released 2 weeks ago, I'm now thinking about adding some features and redesigning it.. –  Thomas Wanner Apr 20 '11 at 20:59
    
Regarding "the only thing I can offer is a part of the profit" you may find this question on a sister site very helpful: Forming a new software startup, how do I allocate ownership fairly? –  Patrick McElhaney Apr 21 '11 at 14:15
    
If you're looking for a graphic designer, then you would be better off asking this on the graphic design stack exchange site, not the user experience site. –  Charles Boyung Apr 22 '11 at 13:10
    
I've tried that, they closed my question and redirected me here, kinda hard to fit anywhere :) –  Thomas Wanner Apr 22 '11 at 13:31

I ran across a site called Build It With Me a while back that may be worth looking in to.

That one's really interesting, seems the people there are really looking exactly for that kind of exchange. Thanks ;) –  Thomas Wanner Apr 28 '11 at 15:10

Looks like you're from Austria, right? I'd check the german speaking forums and communities. For example www.dasauge.at/foren or www.apfeltalk.de/forum (and I'm sure you find more of that kind).

Also: Try to be specific when you look for somebody; tell them what the project is about, sell it to them (but of course don't tell too much so it can't be copied easily).

Hope that helps, Phil
