    If he's talking about ME - well, go for it. If you saw all the fronts I posted on Facebook (and a couple here), we gave the previous designer lots of freedom to have fun, take chances, break the mold so to speak. Our content was good and our presentation was just as good.

    The new SE there is kind of cool, too. The previous one is a d-bag

    I've been in the business for 20 years and I have as much respect for the OP as anyone I've ever worked with. So much so that I registered just to give him and this job my SOA. I'm also a bit familiar with this gig, so if you have any questions about what it entails, the general area, the OP's musical tastes, the former SE's fashion sense, etc., feel free to PM me.
