Before you apply - please make sure that you are okay with the following:
1. You will only work with the Adobe suite - can be indesign, illustrator or photoshop - nothing else (we usually work with Photoshop so that is easier for us).
2. We want you to complete the full 26 graphics needed - there is one price for the whole job, as there is a mix of easy and difficult, it all equals out.
WHO WE ARE:
Want to work on something fun and creative that helps kindergarteners?
We are looking to cultivate a good relationship with a graphic designer to help us with our current need and also be on our books for future work.
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:
We will need you to design and draw step by step graphics for children's educational activities.
We also need you to design our certificates and achievement pages for the overall workshop.
We are developing a fun set of activities for kids and their parents, that help them learn more about the amazing world they live in! Some of the areas that we touch are: maths, science, music, art, creativity, coding (and it goes on!!). These activities are being combined into one giant PDF. Each activity will have text, illustrations, and diagrams to help the kids and parents understand best how to do them. Many activities have step by step instructions. We will be giving certificates, achievement sheets and even a suggested schedule/timetable to print out.
Step by Step - this means a series of simple related instructional diagrams which can show the reader how to complete an activity successfully.
Certificates - This includes anything printable that will help put a smile on the children's faces. Certificates of completion that they can hang on a wall, and other printable charts. We will be providing logos and characters for you to use in these, to fill in the blanks - you just need to do the graphic part of it.
Step by Step and Printables will be incorporated inside our final PDF - but we only require you to export them, hand them over, and we will do the final setting and layout.
We will want you to export into PNG or PDF, as well as handing over the original file.
Skills you will need:
- ability to consistently stick to our style guide (fonts, colours schemes, textures)
- understanding of how to quickly depict a set of instructions through simple diagrams
- ability to keep the final printed product in mind (sizes etc)
- ability to take on a lot of feedback (the work MUST fit with our PDF style!)
- an excellent understanding of Graphic Design for kids
To help safeguard you and us - we will be splitting this job into several milestones.
MILESTONE 1: Create 1 x Step by Step diagrams for 1 activity ("Tie Dye")
MILESTONE 2: Create 1 x Achievement Sheet ("Achievement Page for STEAM")
MILESTONE 3: Complete Remaining 16 Step by Steps diagrams
MILESTONE 4: Complete Remaining 6 Printables (Certificates)
Illustrations/Printables in total = 26 (some are so simple they should take no more than 5 minutes, others require much more thought and time).
Pricing: (including upwork fees) = $210 USD (this works out to be around $7.50 a diagram and rounded up).
I have uploaded the full work list of illustrations and printables need "Upsells work for Graphic Designer.pdf". If you want to check out some of our existing design style please look at "Humans, Animals, Factoids.pdf" (just to give you an idea of the design style we have in general). I have also uploaded parts of our guidelines for the overall layout (please note - just use this as a reference of where your step by step will be included - we do all the of the PDF layout in-house).
We will work with you and give you full support and feedback throughout the whole process. Really, it sounds a lot tricker than it actually is :)
Looking forward to working with you!
I am looking for a mix of experience and value
