Behind the Book is seeking volunteers to design and format new student books!
Each book takes about 15 hours of time for a designer, spread over two or three weeks. We’re nearing the end of the school year, so in order to leave sufficient time for printing we are looking for someone to start right away.
This opportunity is perfect for someone who has a passion for education and literacy, but also an eye for design and skill with computers. While the volunteer can work from home, it is preferable that he/she live in or very near New York City.
The volunteer will need to be proficient in InDesign. Samples of past work are a plus.
You can check out examples of our student books here.
Volunteers will also be invited to attend the Book Celebration Party for the class whose book they design. You can read more about past parties here.
Contact Ellen@behindthebook.org if you are interested in this position. Preference will be given to candidates who can show examples of past design work.
