Layout

20


20 per unit - Virtual OK

Layout of books, magazines, brochures, and similar in InDesign, with print-ready final as PDF. 20 simbi page rate - though that can go up or down depending upon complexity. Everything from correctly and meticulously fitting to templates for specific publication formats to making sure your brochure fits with your local environment.

A basic unit is a page, 8.5"x11" - the price in simbi is a starting point and can vary somewhat depending upon complexity and type of layout.

Final is provided as print-ready PDF: Expect large files.

I can also provide InDesign files, fonts, and all linked files in those cases where I have legal right to do so. For example, I can hand you free fonts that are in the design, but not ones I've purchased for use. This runs extra, and how much so depends on what's been linked. If you're looking for this, you need to tell me so before I start the project.

Training & Qualifications


Layout work both digital and the old style glass/wax for newspaper since 1992. Won an actual award in college for my work with the school paper. I tend to have a late 90s New England newspaper mindset when it comes to large format layouts and a small press poetry mindset for book formatting.

Availability & Preferences


I work around my somewhat insane schedule, so you must contact me to find out where I can slot your project in.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Wetdryvac WDV

I'm willing to negotiate on ALL trades - bringing down the simbi cost in trade for physical goods or your services if they interest me. I'll even work food if you feel like grabbing me 100lbs of rice ...or some other such silliness. I prefer to work for physical goods - if you trade me anything from art supplies to dry goods, it will seriously make my day. The Vac of Wetdryvac.net, artist, author, contract/consent ethicist, and creator of oddments. I'm using Simbi primarily in digital context right now, and have worked more large projects here than I expected to. Seriously enjoying both the work and the people. Feel free to contact me for illustration, web development - Drupal and Wordpress, mostly - and for art projects with unusual requirements. For that matter, if you think what I have on offer here implies the possibility of another skill you'd like to take advantage of, please feel free to ask, "Hey, can you do this thing?" If you'd like a physical print of something you've had me create for you, while I can't print it for you myself and send it, I'm happy to upload your piece to RedBubble, Artflakes, or Zazzle, where you can get it as a print or on other things as well. This is sometimes a bit more expensive than taking the digital file to your local print company, but has the advantage of convenience. I can also upload transparent PNG files to TeePublic, which saves some money up front on newly placed shirts, but I don't have enough experience with them yet to vouch for quality, so don't go this route unless you've used them before and are confident in their services. Regarding UV resistance of prints, when I asked RedBubble, their customer service says this about their metal prints and framed prints: "Metal Prints have high UV resistance similar to many other professional display products. Even though any prints in direct sunlight will fade over time, the production partners say they have metal prints as outside signage in direct sunlight that have only faded slightly in 3 years. The Perspex has the same resistance as framing glass and is actually optically clearer." I do not have similar information for Zazzle or Artflakes, so for the moment RedBubble will be my default print provider. Please remember that unless explicitly stated otherwise, all my art arrives as a 600DPI digital final, with your choice of JPEG, PSD, or TIFF. Feel free to ask about other other options, and if you think you might want the original physical art, I need to know before I start - and the answer for, "Will you provide the physical original?" Is usually no. You can find my basic portfolio on Behance below, and I can provide additional links to existing work on request, but - as this has come up - I do not create new work without an accepted proposal in place, or a contract by other means. This ensures I avoid working without trade. The exception to this is if I'm approaching you - usually as the result of a request - and that usually entails, "Here's the information I have on the thing you requested. If it solves your problem or is what you were looking for, let me know what you think it was worth and I'll write a proposal for that amount." That way I can permit people to opt in on what I think is useful, but only if they feel like it. If you think I should offer another service: Ask. I might take you up on it. Limits are: Must be legal both where you are and where I am, and must not breach consent.show more
