Deadline: July 31st 2021

We are seeking a visual artist to bring the new Dorset Cultural Strategy to life. The new strategy has been developed with a wide range of voices included and demonstrates our commitment to ensuring Dorset’s cultural offer is available to all.

We are seeking a fresh and contemporary approach that supports the text, bringing colour and an engaging style whilst reflecting the aspects of Dorset’s culture both past and present. This can comprise either individual pictures, or a mixture of pictures and graphic elements to enhance or frame the layout of the text. Work may be illustration, painting, graphic design, photographic or mixed media.

There is a fixed fee (inclusive of expenses) of £3000 available for the successful applicant.

Please send a proposal of no more than 3 x A4 pages that includes visual images that are reflective of your visual style, and an explanation of how you would approach the brief.
