This is the first "Offer HN" submission I've ever seen, it may be the first one even, so double thanks: one for your offer, the other for (hopefully) starting this trend.

I'm thinking of doing this for design. I want to set aside 5 hours every Friday to work on designs for pet projects of HN hackers. In exchange for this, I get to blog about it. :D

Would people be interested?

EDIT: doing this. I'll post once a week on HN and the highest rated project on the page (crowdsourcing ftw!) gets 5 design hours. Look out for it tomorrow!

Here is someone a little while back who did a Rate My X: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1794251

He has a ton of programming done and the site is working, but he is clearly no designer and needs a lot of help on design [ he might have improved it some since then ]. Probably a GREAT candidate to reach out to.

That would be incredible, not just for the people selected but as a weekly masterclass for those of us without design talent - before and after helps a lot.

Yes, this would be amazing. Thank you for doing this. Speaking for myself, I'm desperate for design help, but don't really know the best way to find/work with a designer.

That would be insanely awesome. I know for one that I suck at design and try hard to get better.

sahillavingia is one of the top web designers here, I think it's totally worth it to get 5 design hours free off him. too bad I don't have any pet project atm :)

Woah, too kind guys. Anyways, here's the post: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1831960
