We're looking for an exceptionally talented, dependable, hard-working individual to create graphics for every episode on our channel.


As a youtube video editor, For each episode, you'll receive the following:

  • A rough cut, with green screens where the graphics will appear.
  • A document that has (simple, bare-bones) descriptions of desired graphics for specific time ranges in the video. (Again, use the 3 reference episodes as an indicator of the quantity and complexity of graphics in each video.)
  • You will then create preliminary graphics for the whole episode, using your own creativity and resourcefulness to make the graphics as interesting and appealing as possible.
  • (We'll give you access to our Shutterstock account for stock images / illustrations - and you can also pull from the internet.)
  • Within a day of getting your graphics, we'll send some notes for revisions.
  • As we work together, the need for revisions should shrink to almost zero, as you develop a clearer understanding of what we're looking for, and we get better at communicating it.
  • Your pay will be based on the length of the video.
  • It will be $150 multiplied by the length of the video in minutes.
  • So, for example—for an episode that is 10 minutes and 30 seconds long, you would receive $1,575. That would include all revisions.
  • (Paid via Venmo as soon as episode is completed.)
  • For a typical episode (14 minutes long), we'd need to receive all graphics within 72 hours.
  • We hope to be able to get on a consistent schedule which would mean you're working the same days every week.
  • (However, there will be some variation in episode length. Some will be shorter, and some will be much longer.)
  • You'll be working directly with the creator. See more about him at http://mike.bio
  • (Note that he's worked for many years as a creative director, and he's used to working with exceptional talented creatives in such a way that they thrive and deliver their best work on a consistent basis.)

YOUTUBE CREATOR SEEKS TALENTED ART DIRECTOR / GRAPHIC DESIGNER TO CREATE GRAPHICS FOR EPISODES

We're looking for an exceptionally talented, dependable, hard-working individual to create graphics for every episode on our channel.

This is the channel: http://YouTube.com/mikeXtv

Starting later this month, we will be going to a one-episode-per-week release schedule, with an average episode length of around 14 minutes.

The most recent 3 episodes are representative of the style—and the quantity of graphics—for all episodes moving forward. You can see them here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8hk9KLR7D7pFZYINoBepWXDq-oIPZKMQ

At the beginning, we'll give you a style guide, which will reflect what you see in these three episodes.

You will create the graphics in Illustrator (and Photoshop), and they will be animated by someone else.

(Note: if you're not a fan of the graphics that are in the 3 reference episodes, then you're not a fit. We're not looking for an overhaul of our look. Also, it's essential that you feel confident that you can create graphics that match our style, including applying gradient maps to all images.)
