e-Magazine Layout - Test Job for ongoing assignment
Closed - This job posting has been filled.
We publish an iPad travel magazine called ManAboutWorld. It is designed in InDesign 5.5, with the free magplus Plug-in. Each month, we feature new destinations, and have an ongoing need for a contractor to build the new destination pages from a previous month’s template.
The ongoing project will include up to 5 destinations per month, this job is a skills test for a single destination, producing two finished indesign files from two indesign templates and a new
For consideration, you will need to be proficient in InDesign and be able to produce InDesign 5.5 output files. You will need to download the free MagPlus InDesign Plug-in from MagPlus.com, and familiarize yourself with the process of creating links. Access to an iPad is preferred, (it is useful for testing your work) but not required.
For the test, you will be provided with:
1. Two indesign template files to work from
2. Access to a Google Drive document that has the text that needs to be put into the template
3. A sample of the finished templates for reference
You will complete the task in two phases, which is the same process in which the ongoing work will be completed. We would like to see a 24-hour turn-around time on each phase, from the date of assignment.
1. Once all of the text is laid out and formatted, you will send back the indesign file for review and approval, and an approval or a corrected indesign file will be sent back to you.
3. You will create the links, and send back the finished indesign file.
The test pays $30. Once completed, we will ask you for a bid to complete 1-5 similar projects, 10 times per year. Additional projects beyond these template pages will also be available on a regular basis.
