DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST IF YOU CAN'T COMMIT TO WORKING ON THE FULL 116 PAGE PAMPHLET. Please let us know an estimated timeline for completing the full pamphlet - time is of the essence. I've included the full 116 page for reference, as well as a separate PDF of the pages I want you to modify/create for this contest
We are re-branding an existing PDF. We do not want this to look like an altered carbon-copy, despite retaining a lot of the same content. You may bring this PDF into InDesign, but it should look different in terms of color/image choice, font choice, and layout design.
A lot of free stock imagery can be found on Pexels.com and other FREE stock image websites. We only want to pay for stock imagery where images that capture an aspect of Malibu or survival can't be found on the free stock image sites.
We want to avoid hiring someone who can't do their own leg-work on encapsulating the essence of Malibu. Again, this shouldn't look like a vacation brochure...but we want the imagery to reflect all of Malibu's ecosystems. That can be tricky to capture the tone we're going for, because Malibu is a beautiful place and it's hard to avoid the "vacation pamphlet" tone when that's what you're working with.
Avoid using software that would prevent us from making changes in the future. Editing the existing PDF in Adobe CC (InDesign + Photoshop/Illustrator/Acrobat) would be ideal, or you can use of free software that we could have access to (I'm not aware of any that have the capability we're looking for - but we're open to the possibility).
