If you’re interested in how the creative ideas for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Halloween Horror Nights and other theme park attractions are created, you’ll want to attend the Entertainment Designer Forum this Friday night. And you’ll be helping a good cause as well.
Billed as an evening with top designers in the entertainment industry, two sessions will be held at the Mad Cow Theatre in downtown Orlando to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in honor of Stephanie Girard. The panel will discuss their styles and philosophy in designing theme park and film sets. The panel members will take questions after each presentation. In addition to the talks, a silent auction will offer some one-of-a-kind theme park memorabilia, including rare Halloween Horror Nights collectables. [Read more…]
We have a couple of freelance positions we’re looking to fill. Neither of these are full time. The Web developer/designer position would be on an as needed basis and the graphic designer would usually be needed four times a year.
We’re looking for someone to lay out the pages of each issue of the magazine, which includes some easy pages such as template pages and ad pages, to more artsy/complex pages such as our feature stories and the cover.
You must know Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. Magazine layout experience is a plus. The job includes fixing up and resizing photos when needed and fitting the story and photos into the allotted pages in a very visually pleasing way. You must be able to meet the deadlines.
The magazine is typically 64 pages and comes out four times a year. The first job starts in February.
Web Developer and Designer
Our Web person would help us when we need it. It may be a lot of work at one time, or just simple things once in a while. There may be a new section we’d like to add to our Web site, a change to the coding of our custom-built shopping cart software or customer database, or just design changes to our site or ads.
To apply for either opening, send an e-mail to [email protected] with samples of your work.
