Opportunity for Illustrator/Graphic Designer
- Hi all,
I just received the below message from Texas Children's Hospital. They
are looking for an illustrator/graphic designer to do free-hand drawing
and lay-out for patient education materials. They are looking to hire
someone quickly for this project. She didn't state a budget, her remarks
about budget are stated below.
If you or if you know of an illustrator/graphic person who would be
interested please contact Hui-Liang Loh at Texas Children's. Her email
and phone are listed below.
My name is Hui Loh. I am the Brand Marketing Specialist here at Texas
We are currently working on developing new patient education materials.
As our resources are limited internally, we are looking to hire a
freelancer for this project. It will probably start off as a one-job
with potential to evolve into a series of projects for different
diagnoses. We would greatly appreciate your help in recommending the
These patient education materials will be diagnosis-specific and be
targeted towards different four age groups – pre-school children,
school-age children, pre-teens and teens and also each group’s siblings.
So we are looking to develop eight education sheets for each diagnosis.
The copy is developed by our patient educators so the freelancer will be
responsible for the graphics and layout. Most of the copy is
informational accompanied by activities to reinforce the education. So
the graphics will not only entail drawing characters of different ages
and ethnicities to reflect the target audience but also drawing them as
well as corresponding activities in different environments such as a
stomach, hospital bed or wheelchair.
So we really need an excellent children’s art illustrator with
experience in free-hand drawing to develop this array of characters and
activities and who also possesses the technical knowledge to lay
everything out. We need someone who is very detailed-oriented and meets
deadlines. Our previous hire set us back a few months in this project so
we need to hire someone fairly quickly.
In terms of budget, we are in no position to hire an agency which is why
we think that this is a good project for a junior freelancer looking to
add to his/her portfolio. But we are not opposed to more seasoned
illustrators either. Our budget can be flexible based on skill set.
Thank you again for your time and help. Please let us know if there is
any additional information that you need.
