Sci-fi logo designer required immediately

kiplingw Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Hey folks,

My teammates and I are looking to contract a very creative and self motivated logo designer immediately. We need them to produce a high quality logo for a very original and exciting low budget indie / libre science fiction game currently in active development.

Our game is of the dystopian science fiction genre and primarily targeted towards users of the GNU operating system. We will start with one logo for now, but there will probably be others we will have you do later depending on how well the first one comes out.

Our game is in no way influenced by anime, steampunk, fantasy, or cyberpunk, but strives for realism in the tradition of Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and the like. This game is very much influenced by reality and contemporary scientific understanding.

You will be provided with additional details as well as our game's design bible. The latter of which is packed with information on characters, story, scientific information for the layman, and other aspects of the game world to assist you with your task. This book is currently unreleased to the public and so you must use discretion in handling it until it is released.

We expect you to be comfortable reading our design bible, written in English, and to not jump into your work without doing research into our game world and theme first. You should ask questions, lots of questions, whenever you need to and to take pride in your work. You should be comfortable reading and writing in English. You should be comfortable working remotely. We expect a turn around time of anywhere from 2 to 5 days maximum per logo with payment provided immediately when the final deliverables are met and accepted. You need to also be comfortable having your work critiqued and sent back for further revision when necessary. However, you're less likely to have to do this if you have cleared early on a rough "napkin" sketch before you detail, texture, colour, and so on.

Your final high resolution logo needs to be in SVG vector format so that it can be rescaled as necessary, but it can contain raster elements as well, such as textures / materials. It needs to work at a variety of different resolutions, from favicon or application launcher to a high resolution application splash screen or DVD jewel case; and on either dark or light backgrounds. You must provide the original working project file as well (e.g. GIMP, ZBrush, Inkscape, Photoshop, Maya, Blender, etc.). Use a colour space which supports 32-bit.

The project maintains the copyright to your work as well as working project files, but you are given full attribution and listed in the credits. Unlike with proprietary games, you are also welcome to showcase it in your personal portfolio. We have a fairly large project following, a lot of original fictional work and technology, and your work will be showcased to the world. Bonus if you are progressive with respect to libre culture.

We are looking to get you started as soon as possible. Candidates can contact us at kip AT thevertigo DOT com, but must follow the following guidelines. Those who do not follow them or automated bot responses will not be considered.

* Email subject heading: 'Cartesian Theatre Job Applicant: Logo Designer'.
* Encode your mail in plain text, not HTML.
* Provide the cost of a single (for now) logo;
* estimated time you require to complete it;
* a link to a relevant portfolio, but do not attach it unless you cannot host your portfolio online;
* your location;
* and, lastly, any formal or informal education / training you might have.
