Layout & Design Ninja freelance
Craft & Vision is a photography education company. We specialize in creating exception digital products for amateur and advanced photographers. Since 2010, we have produced more than 50 digital products and have a passionate and creative customer base that has become accustomed to great content and compelling design.
Craft & Vision is seeking a freelance graphic layout designer to work remotely, but with an in-house attitude, three (3) days a week for six (6) months—and possibly longer.
The ideal candidate is more than just a button-pusher and can provide inspired collaboration in the creation of PDF eBooks for the photography industry. We’re looking for someone with a fetish for type, so if your pulse quickens around Swiss-style design and great photography, that would be OK with us. We’re an easy-going team looking for someone who gets things done on time, and can join us at HQ for a coffee once and awhile.
This role is ideally suited to a freelancer or sole proprietor who is a highly competent project team member and can receive direction well while at the same time feel confident chiming in with his/her own ideas.
The designer must be highly organized with an eye for detail and great communication skills over different mediums: email, phone, cloud-based collaboration and in-person.
The bossman is world and humanitarian photographer, best-selling author, and Editor-in-Chief David duChemin (aka Chief Executive Nomad); he makes the final decisions on content and creative. The Production Manager is Corwin Hiebert (aka The Chaos Killer) and is the primary point of contact for this position.
