compensation: To be discussed (based on experience)
employment type: contract

We are looking for a creative catalog designer (or team) to produce a polished, impressive-looking 4-page MAIL CATALOG for our consumer electronics business. We specialize in a small niche market, and market technology solutions primarily to business and local government entities. Our business model is to save our customers money by offering solutions that are equivalent or better than their current tech, but at a cost 30% lower than they currently pay

The catalog should showcase our 20 most popular products, with product images, a short description, and tiered pricing based on order quantity. The first page should act as a captivating advertisement, with a strong call-to-action, which should be designed with our target audience in mind, so that they keep and browse through the catalog instead of discarding it as if junk mail. The last page of the catalog will include an order form which the customer can mail or fax to us to place an order (we mostly have this made up already in Adobe Illustrator - all it needs is minor tweaking to match the styling of the rest of the catalog).

This person we hire must be proficient in both Print Advertisement Design AND Catalog Design.

Qualifications:
• Experienced catalog designer
• Experienced ad designer; has written creative, compelling headlines/copy for print or online ads
• Online portfolio with examples of previous catalogs, design work
• Direct-mail or E-Commerce experience a plus
• Experience with print and preparing files for print

Our criteria for hiring are catalog design, marketing savvy (for the cover page of the catalog, which acts as an advertisement), and cost. In the event we find an outstanding catalog designer, but with inadequate advertising/marketing experience for the cover page, or if we find a brilliant/creative print ad designer, but without catalog experience, we may choose to split up the project into two hires; however we would greatly prefer to hire someone who can deliver on both fronts.

We introduce new products 2-3x per year; as such, the catalog will need occasional updates. We may also opt to develop differnt versions to target alternative market segments and/or a larger version with our complete product line included. Additionally, while our priority right now is producing a great catalog, we are also in need of a designer who can create other compelling marketing materials, e.g. presentation boards, catalogs, email blasts/teasers, flyers, line sheets, PowerPoints, etc.

TO APPLY PLEASE PROVIDE LINK TO PORTFOLIO, AND ATTACH RESUME (AND PREFERABLY, SAMPLES OF PREVIOUS CATALOG WORK.) SUBJECT LINE MUST BE "CATALOG DESIGNER".
