Opportunity

Graphic Designer (poster design)

I am a director of the non-profit Jazz Society of Oregon. Each year we present the Cathedral Park Jazz and Blues Festival in North Portland, which is a free, open air concert held in North Portland in July. CPJazz is attended by 10,000-15,000 people and hosts some of the best musical talent in the Northwest. You can learn more about it here: jazzoregon.com/cpjazz.

Each year we produce a poster to let people know about the festival, and to serve as an artistic souvenir, which we sell to help raise funds to cover the cost of the event. I am looking for a graphic artist who would be interested in creating the 2017 Cathedral Park Jazz Festival poster.

The poster can be signed by the designer, and we can provide acknowledgement in our program guide, on our web site, press kit and other promotional vehicles. We can also offer a modest stipend of $200. We plan to award the commission by the end of January, and would need a finished design by the week of March 13th. The Jazz Society would retail all rights to use the design in various promotional activities, and exclusive rights to sell the poster, and the creator would be free exhibit the design in shows, to include it in his/her portfolio, and for personal promotions.

To Apply:

Please send email to geneforte@gmail.com indicating your interest and include a link or attachments with portfolio samples that might be relevant to the commission of this type (concert, festival, other music venue, etc.).
