I’m seeking a graphic designer with a strong background in product photo retouching for occasional freelance help. You must have your own Mac with Adobe CS5 and be available to work remotely. Must respond quickly to emails, be detail oriented and good at following instructions/taking direction. Should also have excellent creative input & be very skilled on the technical end.
I will need help with background removal, retouching images to look great in print, and adding custom backgrounds/shadows. Please reply with your rates, location, resume, link to portfolio and a few examples of items you’ve dropped out with work paths included.
I seek your unique creativity and established design skillset for the soft cover design of a commercial fiction novel, THE STRAWBERRY SEED, complete at 109,000 words.
THE STRAWBERRY SEED follows the life of a hero’s son, a bemused academic with wanderlust who has become the unknowing puppet of an odd and ageless Spaniard. After surrendering his ideal life teaching private school in romantic upstate New York, the protagonist reunites with his addictive childhood mate on a ship crawling towards the Second World War and its short-lived but savage hold on Algeria. Obsessed with his own father’s acclaimed heroics, the protagonist loses himself in the fantastic setting, and soon inexplicable things begin to happen all around. Left behind in New York, the protagonist’s fiancé struggles to decipher hints within his wartime letters that could bring him home. In doing so, she enlists the help of the mysterious old Spaniard, who in turn reveals the most overwhelming myth, or truth, of all.
THE STRAWBERRY SEED is a fantastical expedition that weaves in and out of reality at the reins of both situational absurdity and sentimentality. This begs a design equally as relevant and abstract as the metaphor therein.
Things to focus on:
• Large title
• Fonts are paramount
• Bold colours with deep contrast
• Must standout in thumbnail form
• Literal and metaphorical use of the Strawberry/Seed
• Themes of the novel include: coming-of-age friendship, the great depression, war and anti-war, legend, myth and folklore, long-distance correspondence, Romantic and Victorian literature, otherworldly and divine intervention, immortality.
• Tone of the novel includes: witty dialogue and comedic narrative intertwined with rich memorable characters in obsessively lively environments.

Need someone that can create a hand writing text effect for a live presentation. I want to be able to spell words on an imag screen, letter by letter, with a cursive font that also looks like it could be being painted on with a paint brush. For example, take the words: "I have passion" - I need someone to turn that into a sequential letter by letter cursive effect for projection on a large screen so that 1000 people in the audience will be able to read it.
