LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
The 62d Annual International Jugglers' Association (http://juggle.org) festival is coming up July 13-18, 2009, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We're expecting about 500 of the world's best jugglers and variety artists to come to our festival to juggle, teach, learn, compete, see and laugh at our week-long festival.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
Our festival program is the indispensable guide to all that is going on all week long at our festival. It's in the hands of our attendees every hour of every day, letting them know what's happening, where to find it, and loads of additional information to make their week a blast.
We have performer and guest bios, info on where to eat and drink in Winston-Salem, show schedules, info on our festival facilities, plus all the information on our workshops, competitions, and much more.
The festival program is a staple-bound half-letter publication with a color outer cover. See the example of our 2007 festival program attached PDF for what has worked for us in the past.
The COVER DESIGN and ADDITIONAL GRAPHIC ELEMENTS ARE ALREADY DONE and will be provided to the designer to incorporate into the program. We will also provide ALL COPY for the program.
The designer will provide layout and typographical design, copyfitting, and proofing for print. Final draft will be sent to PDF in imposition format for our commercial printing company to produce.
COPY WILL NOT BE READY UNTIL MAY 30. Designer will have THREE WEEKS in JUNE to do all the layout and design, and submit working DRAFTS every THREE DAYS before our FINAL DEADLINE of JUNE 25.
Since COPY IS NOT AVAILABLE YET, we will select a designer BASED ON EXAMPLES OF COMPARABLE WORK SUBMITTED FOR REVIEW and their compliance with our other deadline and availability requirements stated.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our 500 festival attendees, visitors, guests, and collectors.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
See our 2007 fest program (attached) for format and style of what has worked in the past.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Responsive designer able to meet our deadlines and revision schedules above. Good skills in layout, typography, flow, copy fitting. Available by e-mail and phone during US Eastern time working hours if needed for collaboration.
