Hertfordshire Libraries open call for My Firsts Library mascot and branding opportunity

Are you a Herts based emerging graphic artist/ illustrator just starting out on your career?
Would you like to work with Hertfordshire Libraries to design our new early years mascot and branding that will be seen, and treasured, by thousands of families across Hertfordshire?

We are excited to offer the opportunity to work with Hertfordshire Library Service to create a new character mascot and branding to promote our early years library offer for families.
This commission is funded by an Arts Council National Lottery Project grant with a total project fee of £5841.

We are seeking to commission an emerging illustrator/ graphic artist for our My Firsts project. You will be aged 18 or over and either studying at degree level, newly qualified or in practice three years or less.

We would also like you to be living, working or studying in Hertfordshire / Hertfordshire borders.
This commission provides the opportunity to develop your creative and commercial skills and talents. There are additional elements of family and student engagement with this project for which you will also need to be available. Mentoring and training by established artists is provided to help you fulfil the creative brief and engagement roles.

The project will run over seven months with the design process from December to March 2022. During May 2022 you will then deliver 10 workshops to GCSE/A-Level/BTEC art students to showcase your designs and explain how you have delivered the My Firsts brief. The new mascot and branding will be launched to families in late June 2022.
