Dereham Blues Festival
Publications designer

Every year when we run the Dereham Blues Festival, we produce a 38 page programme. This is a booklet which includes information about all the bands that are playing, where and when, as well as information about the venues and other businesses in town. We create the page layout on the computer and then send the finished file to the printers who print around 12,000 booklets for us.

The role also involves dealing with spreadsheets to sort data and using word processing to proof-read and copy-edit text. This may suit someone who has a good eye for design but also attention to detail when it comes to checking and spotting typos and other errors.

You have the opportunity to learn how to use various software packages to create the 38 page programme brochure in the period between September 2020 and March 2021. So please apply now if you would like to do this.
