Hola. I'm gonna get formal on you guys and use this title Nikkita slapped onto me a while back.
As "Creative Control" I'm responsible for everything related to the graphics stuff and making sure it looks snazzy and the likes. I need one or two people to support me on working on VAA related designs, because we will be renewing our articles by adding an actual article system to the site. It will no longer be just a forum-based community, but we will have an actual...wait for it...website.
Outside of the community, all the articles compiled will turn the VAA into an online magazine and magazines have to look snazzy!
For our upcoming article system, I need people who are proficient in HTML/CSS, and know how to make things look very pretty in Photoshop (or whatever program you use to make pretty graphics. As long as it isn't PAINT. Sheesh.) To give you an idea of what our feature articles could look like, check out this article at CGsociety.org, one of the most popular communities for graphic designers and CG artists.
You'll be helping out with designing all kinds of articles, ranging from interviews, tutorials and other articles that the staff picks out as "hot items" to be featured.
Besides the articles, there are plenty of other graphic needs at the VAA as we're developing the website, ranging from layouts for the VAA subsections, to complimentary images for the regular articles, etc.
In your application for the graphic design, I'll need the following information from you:
-experience with graphic design and making layouts
-samples of your design work.
-suggestions and anything else you'd like to mention
If you have any questions, feel free to IM me on AIM ("Just TamTu") or send me a PM. Applications can be either PMed or emailed to me (tamtu.bui @ gmail.com)
