We are searching for a local area, creative artist capable of creating vectored artwork for lapel pins and embroidered patches. The artwork is used to provide a proof for our customer and a final vectored file for our factory. Degree of difficulty ranges from simple conversions of customer's digital artwork to pin and/or patch ready formats to translating rudimentary hand sketches to final illustrations. The successful candidate will possess an understanding of the lapel pin process which requires metal lines (borders) between each color, recessed and raised metal lettering, legible font sizes for small final products, a familiarity with PMS colors, etc. Candidates that are creative and fast will get first priority in the selection process.
