Call out for designer!

Greetings students!

I am the art director for a new publishing company who is looking for students to design the cover for two separate projects. One is for a Horror/Western genre magazine, the other is for a book based on an East Indian story.

We are looking to work together and develop a design aesthetic to well represent the company and allow students to become aware of our presence within the Montreal community. This is also an opportunity for the student to add to their work portfolio.

A $ honorarium will be given for each cover used.

Please send us:
A link or images/description of your current design portfolio and a brief paragraph explaining your interest in working with us to: faithnumore@yahoo.ca and we will contact you with further information.

SPG POSTER


Will someone please help this man out? He makes really incredible art!!

Details:
“Hello,

I am a painter looking for some help to create an art installation in a gallery in Griffon Town, from October 1st to 10th. This is to assist me with painting and odd tasks related to the project.

This is not a paid gig, and is only in exchange for experience.

Ideally the candidate will be an aspiring artist looking to work within and get a view on an international art exhibition. The candidate needs to be hard working, self propelled and must absolutely have an attention to detail.

The artwork will be in the feel of urban/street art, and will be realistic renderings of people, however, I will mostly need help with faux finis and painting surrounding the installation.

My artwork is on my website, http://www.kevinledo.com/. Please have a look and contact me if you feel you would be a good fit.”
