Graphics/ Illustrator Open Call for Mining Memorial Project
We are seeking a talented illustrator / graphic designer to take an artist-led creative approach to producing both a commemorative publication and a site/ visitor map that will be shared physically and digitally at the final celebration event for the Walking Together mining memorial trail project this autumn.
The commemorative publication will be the culmination of a 10 year community led mining memorial project at Markham Vale, Derbyshire and should sensitively reflect the ambitions of the project to remember all 106 miners who died in the 3 major disasters as well as raising awareness more generally about mining life in the area. It will feature new creative writing that has been produced by local community and school groups. All content will be provided.
In tandem with this work we also require a new illustrated site/ visitor map (which will be visually/ graphically linked to the publication), this map will support visitors to the site to easily navigate the trail and locate specific miner’s figures, whilst also being an attractive piece of design in its own right. This map will be used as a printed visitor map (paper and digital version required), within the commemorative publication and for 2 x site lectern panels.
Deadline: Monday 11th July 2022, 12pm (midday)
Fee: £3,300 + VAT if applicable to include all fees and expenses (NB there is a separate budget for printing of the publication, maps and lectern panels).
Timeframe: July – October 2022
