We are a new business based in the UK looking to commission and purchase many pieces of artwork which we will use to create our edible cake toppers.
Initially we are focussing on a very small area of our business '0-5 age group birthday designs', but if you follow our briefs, keep within time frames and produce excellent quality work there will be plenty more opportunities to work with us with designs in many categories including anniversary, wedding, thank you, happy birthday (older age groups), and just about any other topic you could create a greeting card for.
To give you an example of the types of designs we require initially (in terms of artwork we like) I have attached some images for you to view. The first designs we require from you like these images need to be bright, not shaded (bold colours), funny and or cute to a 0-5 year old.
Please do not bid if you wish to license the designs to us or if you are re-selling images you have done previously. In order for us to make profit we often need to recycle images into more than one design, so licensing will be a nightmare. We are therefore looking to buy the copyright to these designs from you and will need you to sign a contract with us to confirm the designs are your originals, and that we now have full ownership of the files to use how we wish to do so - no big issue I'm sure to you if you are a legitimate illustrator who is genuinely interested in this job and future opportunities with us.
Please bid per character design / background design rather than per hour and please only bid if you can attach images from your portfolio of the type of thing you think we are after. Please note that we are looking for many illustrators to keep our designs different, so please include your contact details so that we can contact you directly should you not be the person we chose from this ad.
As I've mentioned we are in the 'new business phase' currently and only have a handful of designs as of now that we are selling from... we think by this time next year we could be at way beyond 1000 designs, so if you are serious and are looking for some long term work, we look forward to receiving your offer and to working with you for a long time!
We are looking to have the illustrators chosen by the end of this month, and the designs to be completed for the 13th August.
