This Invitation to Tender (ITT) has been issued by The Standards and Testing Agency (STA), on behalf of the Department for Education, to a number of suppliers to carry out a competitive procurement exercise to award a contract for illustration services.
The object of this procurement is to create a series of illustrations to be used on confidential national curriculum test materials.
STA requires black and white line drawings and colour illustrations as detailed in section 2 for use in national curriculum assessment tests. The finished artwork will need to be produced electronically in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) format for line drawings, and in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or in Adobe Photoshop (.psd), or a compatible format agreed by STA, for colour illustrations. All images must be provided as a layered, unflattened file, where practical, so small amendments or changes to composition can be made if required.
The Department for Education will own copyright of all work commissioned.
We require proofs and outlines as required and would expect to see sketched drafts for comment prior to approval to illustrate and colour.
The artwork should be suitable for print use. The size of the artwork averages around 12 x 8 cm (typical for line art illustrations), the largest being A3 (A4 spread, colour illustration). Further details of all artwork will be provided to the successful Bidder.
