Can your creative design skills strengthen our social justice work?

Lirata is seeking to partner with a person or team with strong graphic design skills, to refresh the look and feel of our website and other key communications materials.

We need your help to better present our identity and work to the world.

About this role

We are seeking a volunteer graphic designer to assist us with one or more of the following areas:

  • Refreshing the design of our website - in collaboration with our volunteer web developer who is rebuilding the site structure and functionality.
  • New marketing materials - especially brochures but also postcards, a better PowerPoint template and more.
  • Report templates - our current template is fine but dull. We need your help to develop more options which support greater use of images.

The website is our top priority for the August – October 2019 period.

We hope to find a person or team who:

  • Would like to contribute time on a volunteer basis to support the social justice work of Lirata and our many project partners.
  • Has a consultative and collaborative approach, and will work in partnership with our staff.
  • Will provide fresh ideas to get our design thinking out of the rut.
  • Has strong technical skills and a reasonable level of experience in graphic/creative design.
  • For the website refresh - has existing experience in website design, and strong knowledge of responsive design.

We will welcome you to our friendly team, provide support, and work closely with you to get great outcomes from your contribution. We are open to your preferences about how much time you are able to contribute, how often, and whether you would like to join us on a project-specific basis (e.g. just for one piece of work) or would like to work with us over time on a variety of areas.

Lirata's marketing and communications activities are managed by our CEO Mark Planigale. Mark and other members of Lirata's staff will work closely with you to inform your work and provide content.
