Freelance Illustrator/ Graphic Artist

Portola Plush Co. – Posted by malouieAnywhere


Job Description

Portola Plush Co. is a small startup that creates innovative plush character toys with veteran artists and designers from Apple, Disney, and Pixar.

We’ve produced factory prototypes, tested them with kids (who really love them), and are gearing up for our launch. That’s where you come in.

We are seeking an experienced Illustrator / Graphic Artist to help our characters come to life! You would support our Chief Character Designer in producing and polishing up artwork and assets that we can use. That includes designing pages for a mini storybook, lettering/illustrations/artwork for our toy packaging design, background art, a world map, and artwork for our Kickstarter and website – all in collaboration with our creative team, including our CEO and our Chief Character Designer. Our team has come up with some moodboards and initial draft versions of a lot of the work, and would love to work with you to make sure we polish it all and get it to a place where we have something that kids and parents will love.

Please only apply if you have experience working for the likes of Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, Nickelodeon, or a popular gaming studio. We are looking for someone who can produce artwork that is in vector format, yet looks like it could be hand painted. Further, we are also looking for experience in lettering / logos / icons / graphic art.

We are located in Portola Valley, Silicon Valley, CA, but working remotely is fine with us!

In your email to us, please specify:
1/ Your hourly rate
2/ Your estimated availability for the next 3 months (June through August)
3/ Projects you’ve worked on. Please include attachments, links, etc., that are most relevant to the tasks we have described in this job post.
4/ Your credentials (resume, or your LinkedIn)

Please send your email to Marissa Louie (CEO):
