Toy and game company seeks freelance artists to create artwork for two family card games for ages eight and up.
We are looking to hire one to three artists for these two projects, which will include card illustrations, packaging and promotional materials.
Game #1 has 35 total illustrations. Game #2 has 20.
The price for the artwork will be negotiated with the chosen artists when it is time to draw up a contact. Selected artists will receive $25 - $35 for each card illustration. The higher end rate will be for those artists who have computer graphic art applications (Illustrator/Photoshop) and can separate background and foreground images, and change colors and text to our specifications (should additional changes be needed.) Final payment for artwork as a whole will depend on how many card illustrations each artist is assigned (This can range from $200 to over $1,000.)
For Game #1 we are looking for Wacky Pack / Mad Magazine style artwork with an emphasis on visual jokes. Game #2 is more whimsical and open to a variety of styles.
Card size is 3.5’’ in height and 2.5” in width. Recommended art size is 5 x 7 inches. This is so details can be drawn easier in a larger size then shrunk down to actual card size. Art size can be larger or smaller if necessary, so long as it conforms to a 5/7 ratio. JPEG or PDF are the preferred file formats.
We have descriptions for each of the cards and rough clip art examples that we will send to interested artists. Before emailing us any sample artwork, we ask that you look at the examples we email you and play close attention to the descriptions for the different cards. This way, you can send us appropriate samples. (We don’t want to sift through portfolios laden with superheroes or gory images no matter how well they show your craft.) We are looking primarily for humorous and whimsical illustrations, and for artists who can think up visual gags for mundane objects like tennis rackets, TV tables and old doors.
Selected artists will be given three weeks to complete the card illustrations. Additional time will be given if the artist is also selected to illustrate packaging and promotional materials.
All interested artists should send an email to email@example.com for more details.
