We are a newly founded academic journal team at King's College London and we are looking for a designer to design our journal. Even though it is an academic journal, we are hoping that it can have a layout similar to that of a magazine. We are expecting the journal to be roughly 30+ pages. The identity and style of the journal has yet to be established, but we are open and willing to experiment with new designs and ideas.
The fixed budget of USD$200 is stated above. As we are a student-run organization funded by our university, we are severely limited in our financing. However, if you are very keen on taking on this project and would like alter the price, we are open for negotiations.
The materials for the journal are mostly ready, we just need a designer to
1. Create an identity for the journal
2. Piece all articles and sections together into a journal.
The designer must be proficient in Adobe InDesign or any other preferred publication designing software.
Photoshop skills are mandatory.
The designer must also be fluent in English. He/she is not allowed to use Google Translate in order to communicate in English. This is to ensure clear and effective communication between us and the designer.
We are looking to have the entire journal (including the design) completed by September 10th, 2016. Minor postpones may be allowed (by maximum a week or two).
