5/29/13 Dauphin Design: Freelance illustrator with a strong background in children-related graphics who can continue the process of building a clipart library for a nationally recognized non-profit organization based in Hartford. This library, which focuses on childrens’ health and safety issues, was developed by an illustrator who has since retired. Our goal is to locate a new resource whose style and sensitivity matches the existing artwork that was originally developed in Illustrator.
If you are interested, please email Cheryl Dauphin at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a sample of the existing illustration work to see if your style is a suitable match.

Under the general direction of the Director of Development the Public Relations Manager is responsible for promoting the Hill-Stead's activities, collections, events, facilities, and programs; managing communications with donors and members and implementing the public relations work of the museum's programs. Please send a resume and cover note to interim director Debra Pasquale at email@example.com.
5/21/13 Hill-Stead is in need of a designer who would be willing to volunteer to lay out and design a fairly straightforward poetry chapbook. It requires interfacing with both the Poetry Coordinator at Hill-Stead as well as the poet whose work is featured. Hopefully the project would facilitate a relationship between the museum and designer resulting in possible full time position or in future freelance projects.
The project is a small run 36pp book plus cover, with endpapers.
Cover is 4-color, inside is b/w, 5.5"w x 8.5"h
Copy is finalized; deadline is to get to the printer by the 24th of June.
ISBN number has been obtained.
Re: cover design...traditionally, to help brand the book as a Hill-Stead publication, we have tied the cover image to the museum as much as possible (using either an archival photo, a piece of artwork, or a photograph of part of the house), while also making sure it resonates with the poetry. Of course, it is up to you (designer) what you choose to do, and poet also says she has some suggestions for images.
