Right now I work as the art director for a small, locally published but nationally distributed jazz magazine. This morning I got a call from a guy who used to be one of our editors, who is now living in Pennsylvania. He has a mind to start his own local rag, along the same lines, content-wise, as The New Yorker, but for his locale. He called me for some info on how long it takes me to do my job, what’s needed, basically just picking my brain. But the conversation slid towards the possibility of my actually doing to job for him myself, from here. I certainly have the time after-hours, that doesn’t concern me.
But the long-distance thing does, somewhat. I’ve never done a graphic-design project long-distance like that, and I wonder what kinds of hurdles I might run into if I were to take the job on. Anyone have any anecdotes about doing such a thing that they’d like to share? Anyone know of any resources, either online or software, that would help in doing a job like this?
Thanks in advance for any help.
