Union Wireless if looking for creative and talented freelance Graphic Designers to create Billboard campaign concepts for our new “Out Here” branding campaign. Be innovative, be original and submit your best work. The selected candidate(s) may have opportunities for additional freelance work with the company in the future.
About the Company: Over the course of more than 100 years, Union Telephone Company (dba – Union Wireless) has evolved from a small town local landline provider using homemade equipment, to a state of the art wireless carrier with international roaming partners. Today, Union Wireless has more towers throughout Wyoming than any other wireless provider and continues to enhance its network monthly.
Union’s Advertising: Part of Union’s success can be attributed to the pride it takes in serving the local communities with personalized service (Treating You Like a Neighbor, Not a Number) and by providing coverage in remote areas, typically not served by national carriers (For Where You Live, Work and Play). In conjunction with seasonal promotional campaigns, Union Wireless is currently introducing a branding campaign titled “Out Here”. Additional information regarding Union Wireless can be found by visiting www.UnionWireless.com.
Out Here Campaign: The “Out Here” campaign is designed to highlight the unique lifestyle and values that are shared by people in Wyoming, as well as Union’s commitment to keeping them connected to the rest of the world. TV and Radio ads have been created and will continue to be developed to enforce this branding effort. The first TV ad created was called Out Here Is Home. In addition, we are looking for Outdoor Billboards advertising concepts to be created that will tie in with this motif. This is where you come in.
Instructions: Please develop a Billboard concept that represents and aligns with Union’s theme for this campaign. “Out Here Is Home” and “Phones That Work Out Here” could potentially be used as catchphrases for your concept(s). Try to keep it to 7 words or less. The highlighted texts above in green are formal slogans that the company uses in advertising and can be incorporated into your concept(s) if desired. The dimensions for billboards will vary by location and sign company, but for this exercise the dimensions should be: 14 feet height x 48 feet wide.
TV Ad: You can watch the first TV commercial for the Out Here campaign (as well as other campaigns) by visiting our Youtube page at [url removed, login to view]
This will give you a better idea of the direction that the company is looking to going in with this campaign.

Compensation: The Payment for the selected concept(s) will be in the amount of $300.00.
Additional Details: The chosen design’s graphic artist will need to submit all un-flattened art and images, fonts, and any other files as requested to Union Wireless for further modification and sizing by the internal Graphic Design team.
