Typesetting/Copyediting/Proofreading (InDesign CS2)
May 14, 2009 7:14 AM

We need someone to take multiple badly-formatted Word files and lay them out to make 6-8 24-page InDesign documents, for both print and online PDF distribution.

We have examples of previous ID documents to use as templates but no formal style sheet. (There will likely be several iterations as we hammer out a formal style sheet.) The work is mostly text with some placement of dingbats/borders. We will provide all necessary fonts.

You should be someone who is comfortable working independently and who is willing to take initiative. You must have significant experience with InDesign and superior English-language skills. Being a nitpicky grammar nerd is a plus, as is familiarity with other Englishes (British, Australian). You should also be comfortable setting work with lots of special characters.

Pay negotiable; please quote either an hourly or project-based rate. We prefer project-based but are flexible. Please send LINKS to examples of previous work -- do not send email attachments!

This is a telecommuting position -- there is no office. You should have a Skype account.

You should have a good chunk of time over the next month to devote to this project, and then we will have new assignments every eight weeks or so.

(We need all these skills together for this to work, so please don't quote for just the typesetting or just the copyediting/proofing.)
