McDonald’s Philippines Needs Web Developers


McDonald’s Philippines’ website is a 404. They finally noticed.

Golden Arches Developement Corporation (GADC — McDonald’s Philippines) will be developing a number of websites for key marketing programs to be launched 3rd quarter of 2007. If you are a freelance webmaster or web development company and have a solid portfolio to establish track record and stability, please email the below listed documents to Ronald So-tiong (0917.820.6103, of the GADC Information Technology Department.

1. Company Profile

Thank you.

McDonald’s blogs from the top; hope McDonald’s Philippines can follow suit. Flashy marketing websites are visually fun to design, but they’re useless without real two-way communication.

Good Filipino Web Designers Needed

Marc Macalua is banging his head against his desk looking for good Filipino web designers. Having worked in two web design firms, I sympathize with his plight. Here’s what he needs, but can’t seem to find:

I know I’m aiming high, too high it seems. But that’s the standard I need: a visual monster with a healthy dose of Jakob Nielsen-ish tendencies, a thinking designer if you will. Now the market for that special skill group is incredibly sparse. Factor in the full time requirement and you end up with close to zero hits.

I need someone who’s willing to make that daily commute to a real desk and a real office and unfortunately for me, the good ones that don’t shun the corporate world are already taken.

Any good Filipino web designers in the Philippines who can help him out?
