Is there a forum to contact people/companies who are skilled in creating custom skins (visually as well as technically)? I like the glassy looks of the forest theme for example, but changing the sprite files and making color choices is beyond my comfort zone and time constraints. We know graphic designers, but would prefer someone who understands the telerik implementation of skins and can work independently. General feedback we have received is that the orange selected row in the forest grid is too bright and bold for example. We also have needs to completely customize a skin to match our customers (and our) website look and feel. We use RadGrid heavily, FormDecorator with all standard html controls, radtext/numeric boxes, treeview, calendar, splitter/pane regularly. Tabs, upload and a variety of other controls less frequently.
I would envision creating a sample page with many controls on it if the designer needed us to do that, and passing a URL to a customer website and the interested party would take control. Some of our customers do not have the best website design to work off of, so some creativity will be required. Experience in professional web application design could lead to other opportunities.
Please note, we are NOT looking to hire an employee on either a full or part-time basis. We are looking for a professional relationship with some entity who understands telerik skins and possesses a keen graphic inclination that we can rely on for our skin creation/modification needs.
