Are you a designer? An artist? Wetfish needs you!

We are looking for a graphic designer / vector artist to help us with several upcoming projects including stylized graphics, interactive scenery, and product design.

If you'd like some examples of the type of artwork we're looking for, look no further than our trello card called 'inspiration.' For the past couple months we've been compiling screenshots and images from other sites that really capture the atmosphere we'd like to see here at wetfish.

Think you've got what it takes? All we ask is that you agree to release your work and project files under a creative commons license — a rare chance to contribute to free culture and get paid for it!

Responsive design at its finest

After years of ignoring mobile users, we've finally taken the plunge and created a responsive layout for wetfish. The old layout was a mess of javscript hacks thrown together in a weekend in 2011 so it was no surprise that things were horribly broken. But enough about the past, let's relish in the beauty of now.

Our new design scales intelligently regardless of your resolution. Now on mobile you can even read the content and scroll the page! Plus look out for that juicy hamburger menu.

There were also several performance improvements, thanks in part to using SVG animations for the clouds instead of javascript, and forcing hardware acceleration on mobile.
