The Anarchist Book Fair graphic designer will be asked to:

2. transform the poster design into: a) a 11×17 black & white poster in English; b) a black & white flyer in English; c) a website banner; d) a logo; e) a t-shirt design (that will work fine on a dark color shirt); f) a Book Fair program cover design;
3. work closely with the Book Fair collective to finalize visual media related to the Book Fair.
4. be available for this process from now until the Book Fair in April, particularly from February to April.
5. license the work through Creative Commons with consideration for future use.

Thanks for considering submitting a design.
