Designer

GHR OOTY - On Route

Background: At Go Heritage Runs, Design serves a very important purpose. As a startup, good design  helps us differentiate. At the same time, we expect design to be practical – it should dispense information in an easy, consumable manner. All design follows a similar theme and incorporates unique elements from the location of the run. Each design is preceded by good research to decide the theme and followed by great execution.

Location: Bangalore, India – can work from home with meetings at our office every two weeks.
Education Qualifications: Undergraduate Design Students preferred.
Roles and Responsibilities: 

  1. Design social media collateral (posters) and run collateral (run logo, T-shirt, running bib, finisher certificate, finisher medal, event signage, route maps, information booklets)
  2. Design collateral for our online store (T-shirts and other destination souvenirs – magnets, keychains, bookmarks, etc.)
  3. Research the cultural and historic elements of run destinations and incorporate these into collateral design – see examples of previous work here.
  4. Structure all design around the themes of running, heritage and travel.

Other Information:

  1. This is a part-time position and will require 50-80 hours  of effort a month.
  2. A monthly stipend will be provided.

About GoUNESCO and Go Heritage Runs:
GoUNESCO was founded in 2012 with the objective of making heritage fun. We are supported by UNESCO New Delhi and organize travel challenges, fun runs, internships and the #makeheritagefun series of events (a distributed social media campaign occurring simultaneously at cities around the world to draw attention to heritage).  Go Heritage Runs is a spinoff of GoUNESCO – and we have been planning fun runs at heritage sites across India since 2014 – and recently received the Manthan Award in the e-Culture, Heritage and Tourism category. Further, this April, Conde Nast Traveler rated three of runs (Hampi, Badami and Udaipur) as among the most scenic in the country.
