We regularly put on new and exciting events but we need exciting graphics to represent them! Much of the work so far has been done in house by staff and volunteers who have minimal design skills, but as we gain a higher profile we need to raise our game in the way we represent our events.
We are looking for a volunteer graphic designer that can create clean, fresh and impacting graphics to represent our exhibitions and events.
The graphics will be used mostly online, sometimes in print and occasionally in large format print.
We have been lucky enough to have a volunteer graphic designer in the past who kindly this look and feel for us - www.sumr.co.uk - which we are very happy with. If you are able to create similar clean and fresh graphics, we'd love to talk to you.
Our immediate requirements are for :
- A double sided A5 printed flyer promoting our family gaming nights and retro gaming nights.
- An A5 printed flyer promoting our online charity shop : www.gamebytes.co.uk
- A new logo for and basic website design for our online charity shop : www.gamebytes.co.uk
- A square web graphic (1000px sq) representing our 'build an arcade controller' workshop.
- A square web graphic (1000px sq) representing our 'build a Z80 computer' workshop.
- A design for a new layout for the education section of our website.
Because graphic design is a very subjective area, we are keen to find someone that shares our design philosophy. We are looking for someone that can work with us in developing designs. We have strong ideas, but lack the skill to implement them! Can you help?
Just the ability to create fresh and impacting graphics!
Come and Join the Team!
We are a relaxed and welcoming team. The working atmosphere is fun, relaxed but professional. Tea and coffee is available for free from our 'Pac Lunch Shop' and as a volunteer you are welcome to all of our special events for free.
It would be great if you could come and meet us in person, but it is not essential. We can work via online sharing services like Google Drive, WeTransfer and can communicate via email and phone or skype.
We are open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm, every week thoughout the year. We also often meet up on a Thursday evening on a casual basis to get things done and maybe get some pizza in!
This role can be done at a time that suits you within the above times if you want to work at the museum. The amount of time you can offer us is entirely up to you, and it need not be the same each week. All we ask is that you let us know in advance. If you want to work remotely, then clearly you can work whenever you want!
How to Apply
As with all of our volunteer roles, if you are interested in volunteering your time and playing a vital part in our museum, email us with your details, what role you'd like to apply for and what makes you ideal for this role.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you ...
