I'm a newbe and to be honest with you, I'm trying to find app programmers to work with. Any of you know anything about programming? I know zip! Which means I'm at a sink or swim point in my career. I'm actually an illustrator and at times a reluctant designer from a media and publishing background - but I'm getting more and more clients wanting to know if I can design ipad apps (interactive books mostly - have you seen the Alice in wonderland app?) as well as illustrate their ideas AND I CAN'T!
So really I need to find someone who's great at programming but not so hot at illustration, photography (Photoshop, illustrator etc) - the visuals basically. Sadly the two are usually connected, lots of programmers now are great at the visual stuff too, so I'm fast becoming a dinosaur in the field.
I've been getting close to throwing in the towel and admitting I'm past it! I'm beginning to panic. Anybody got any advice? I was reading the other day that it takes at least 10 years really to become great in any field - I've been illustrating since I was a nipper and it has taken me years to become confident in just this field, these days whatever people ask me to draw - I can usually do in one way or another but it's taken THAT LONG for me to be able to confidently say that - so the thought of learning programming totally from scratch (I don't even know any html code) - is a daunting task, unless there just happens to be someone out there in the same boat, but sort of the other way around!!
Any advice anyone?
All the best,
