Opportunity

Designer (layout, branding, web)

My project Love Wins fosters understanding and acceptance for LGBTQ relationships through portraits and stories of LGBTQ couples. We are creating a large archive of stories, traveling around the United States adding to the archive and producing photo books. We’re looking to expand our team to include an awesome person who can help take the project to the next level.

DESIGNER- We will have collateral, updates, swag, books and other fun things that we need help with. As of right now, we don’t quite have a cohesive brand guide to help us make decisions. We’re looking for a wonderful designer to help make the project as awesome as it can be. Experience with web is a plus. We need someone who can translate a vision and work under tight deadlines if need be. One of the key projects will be designing the book (which we need to get into production very soon), so a strong background in layout is definitely a thing.

PLEASE BE- Rad, kind, collaborative, humble, able to laugh at yourself, passionate, and able to translate critique to make something better. We are all really hard workers and expect a lot from each other, if you’re someone who’s always giving your best and striving to be better each day let’s talk!

MORE ON THE PROJECT- Love Wins has been featured in international publications (links below), and has garnered lot’s of local support. We’re planning on traveling to 6 states before the end of the year and adding over 100 stories. We also have fiscal sponsorship so people can support the project with tax-deductible donations. You can see the project here: lovewinsportraits.com

We are all donating our time because we believe in the project. We’re looking for committed team members to help us grow Love Wins and be a fundamental part of it’s success. There is a big potential for exposure as the project grows.

Thanks!
