I am a wedding photographer, and I am looking for a graphic designer to work on the wedding’s albums. Obviously, I will provide the images touched up and ready to put on the album and the indications for the design. Each album design as to be exclusive and unique as the wedding and the couple, that is why it is impossible to use a patron, and I need a professional designer to help me.
Usually, the album included about 130 pictures in 25 spreads (50 pages). Some spreads will have one image others with 7-10 images on the high side. I do like some extra effects such as the use of gradients, frames, borders and so on....but without being over done. I can show you some samples if we get to that point.
The deadline to design a book will be 2 weeks maximum from the sending of the pictures. And the volume of work will be at least 15 albums to design per year.
I need someone able to make an albums design sophisticated, timeless (modern but also classic) and with good finishes, starting from zero. The book has to be design in Photoshop or at least in Indesign.
The designer who I will work with has to be responsible, serious, enthusiastic, and creative and implicate in his job. He has to know the importance of the deadlines, and to have a good communication especially in case of problem.
I am looking for establishing a long-term partnership, so that I am looking for someone available to cooperate for all year long.
If your profile is what I am look for, I will ask you to make a free test. It consist in designing 2 spreads with some photos that I will send you to see how is your work, and which kind of design you can create with my photos. My first project is almost ready to go and I will have 2 more soon.
Thanks for your answer.
