Calling All Web Designers and Developers

The Real Housewives of Baghdad is in need of a makeover! I am looking to pay a developer and/or designer for a custom (or semi-custom) Tumblr theme that best suits my blog. It is photo-based, and an ideal site design would feature primarily images along with a short commentary and tags. Additionally, I am looking for help with the design of my current logo set.

If you are interested in taking on this task, please tweet at me at @Natebking and we can take it from there. Alternatively, you can send me a private message with your contact information to my Ask box. As mentioned previously, this would be a paid project.

There is an incredible amount of talent on Tumblr, and I am confident that this is the right place to begin searching.

Thanks!

- Nate

Three covers for the viral campaign I shot for Catapult.org

Even in 2014, the rights of women and girls are severely threatened by sex trafficking, slavery, child marriage and other violations around the world. International Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, continues to spread awareness and garner support — and change — for women across the globe.

Catapult, a crowdfunding site dedicated specifically to the advancement of women and girls, has released a startling new visual campaign in an attempt to make this year’s IWD “more than just a cover story.” The Cover Stories campaign features three mock magazine covers that highlight terrifyingly real human rights issues to push the conversation forward.

The magazines display the grisly names Child Bride, Good Slavekeeping and Thirteen — wordplays on the popular magazines Brides, Good Housekeeping and Seventeen, respectively.

Headlines such as "The Wedding You’ll Never Forget But Wish You Could" and "Who Needs a Childhood Anyway?" float next to the young models. The cover of Good Slavekeeping pretends to cater to the human rights violators themselves, adding another dark layer to the already serious campaign.
