Each week, on a Friday starting around 9:00 UK time , we produce two newsletters (with similar designs) using Pagemaker. Most material is usually available late on Thursday, UK time, although issue is finalised on Friday morning, so there could be late changes.
Each is around 24-30 pages, typically. We have existing templates and design standards, which are available. Occasionally (6-8 times per year) we also have supplements to a standard design, for trade show reports.
Content is provided as tagged text files and graphics are available from our website. Some liaison with editor sometimes needed.
Job is to do the layout and create .pdf files (two formats - A4/lettter). Typically takes 6-8 hours for both newsletters. A sample is attached.
We are looking for a long term contractor to do this job every week. Initial contract would be for 6 weeks. On completion of initial contract, we would go ahead on an indefinite basis.
NOTE budget is for first 6 weeks, not per week!
Note also that Upwork does not allow us to select multiple regions. We plan only to recruit freelancers that are on a similar time zone as Europe.
Note also that we are posting a separate job to convert the current Pagemaker design to an InDesign template.
