Expression of Interest for a graphic designer              Tairāwhiti Arts Venue and Open Studio Guide

 

 

Detail
Tairāwhiti Museum (with support from Gisborne Herald and Trust Tairāwhiti) are developing a Tairāwhiti Arts Venue and Open Studio Guide and we are seeking a designer to help us create the publication.

The aim of the guide is to support and publicise local Tairāwhiti art venues.

The guide will be designed and printed locally and will be available free in a printed format and online.  The guide will cover the whole Tairāwhiti region and is free for venues to be a part of.

The guide will be an A5 booklet (20 pages approx.) and include a map identifying each location, and details of each venue, including:

  • An image of the venue
  • A brief summary of the venue (250 words max)
  • Entry fees (where relevant)
  • Physical address
  • Open hours
  • Contact details and website

We have an editor and photographer working with us on the project to ensure consistency and the designer will be provided with a finalised content package.

Tairāwhiti Museum will be doing a print run to support this project so that each venue and local Tairāwhiti tourism venues will be provided with print copies.

Timelines:
The aim is to have the guide to be completed and available by Christmas 2021 and is designed for use throughout 2022.

Expressions of interest from designers need to be received by 30 November and the successful designer will be informed by 01 Dec.

The design work will be required from early to mid-December and will require two rounds of feedback the first on the design generally and the second more widely from venue stakeholders.

Registering your interest
If you are interested in working with us to design this publication, or have any questions please email kkennedy@tairawhitimuseum.org.nz  by 30 November 2021 providing:

  • Confirmation you can meet the December timeline
  • An estimate for the cost of the work
  • A few examples of your previous work

 

We welcome ideas for new projects and exhibitions so if you have something in mind, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
