I am in a bind and need a freelancer that can get some work in over the weekend into the first half of next week. All my creative staff is out for one reason or another with a large workload still on hand and even my my back up freelancer took the next 5 days off. So this is not an ideal time to bring someone new on, but I need at least some basic assistance by someone with good InDesign, Photoshop and proofing skills.
We publish a quarterly niche arts magazines (print and digital) that is due to go to print next week. There is a lot of time consuming busy work just getting the text and photos into our templates right now plus prepping photos, usually taken by non-pro photographers, for print. Actually design work on the articles would be nice but I can take care of putting the bling and polish on them myself. Since I have been looking for someone who can work in InDesign and Photoshop plus can proof text+layout in InDesign, I figured I'll make this an opportunity to find someone who might have all those skills although the InDesign work is the priority here.
We generally pay by the page or 2-page spread (anywhere from $15-$30/spread) for layout work and a per word or per page rate for proofing layout that ranges depending on the level of proofing being done.
Because of my tight deadline, I am looking for someone who can give me a 24 hour turnaround on assigned articles, averaging 4 pages per assignment which usually translates to 1-3 hours of work per assignment including revision time and I expect to have 1-2 each day the following 3 days (Feb 13-15)plus layout proofing needed on Tuesday or Wed.
I do ask that anyone bidding on this job be a native English speaker or so fluent that we couldn't tell. We do not have time to be wading through any communication issues. Thanks!
