Freelance Op at USU

We weren't able to do a project at work, and so they asked me for references. Preferrably, they'd like to work w/someone local (or someone who is willing to come up for a couple face-to-face interviews). Here's the email I got from them today. Basically, the project is a direct mailer for the School of Accounting @ USU that will go to high school seniors and current USU freshmen to show them the perks of majoring in accounting.

If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll send Melissa your info and get you in contact w/her. Could you let me know ASAP.

Thanks team. Hope everyone's doin' well. Weird to think I haven't seen you guys for 8 months after seein' you nearly everyday for 3 years.


Here's the specs:

I guess we would want to know what/how each person
charges, and make sure it would be someone who could come in and meet with
us a couple of times during the project. From past experience, I know
it is nice to be able to sit down and show someone what we are looking
for, instead of just everything via email...so we would like to work
with someone who is local. We have, in the past, worked with an awesome
graphic designer who moved to SLC, and that is why we decided not to go
with him this time.

We are looking at a mailer to be sent out in January or February,
targeting seniors in high school and college freshmen, to advertise
Accounting as a major. We also were thinking of doing a mailer we could send
out to students interested in a Master of Accounting degree, advertising
our program. We don't really have a strict deadline for either
project, but would like to get them done as soon as we can--hopefully the end
of January-ish at least for the Accounting major project. I envision
both to be an 8 1/2 x 11 folded in half and sealed, with the postage
right on one side. I have a basic idea of what we want; we just need
someone to create it and make it a little bit better, to add to it if
possible although I will have the bodycopy and everything set to go when we
begin. We have some graphics we've found online, as I showed you at
the meeting with Advent, if you think any of those would work well...if
you hate them I would want to know, too, though. :) I will have the
text worked out; there will most likely be minor changes along the way. I
know Christmas is upcoming, so we realize the need to be flexible, but
we could start on this project as early as the beginning of next week.
We are not in the office Dec. 21-January 3...so we just need the
design. We can find someone to print and mail it out.
