As well as calling for architects and landscape designers, the OPLC is also seeking to set up a panel – featuring between three and six consultancies – dealing with visualisation and graphics.

This work would be in support of the OPLC’s marketing and communications works and would include projects such as design reports, brochures and prospectuses, as well as digital designs and animations.

As well as the graphic design lot, there are also lots dealing with urban design and architecture and landscape design.

The four-year framework will be be worth between £1m and £4m in total.

Kathryn Firth, chief of design at the OPLC, says, ‘This is an exciting opportunity for organisations to help shape one of the most important regeneration projects of the century.

‘Legacy plans for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are more advanced than any other previous host city and we want to ensure that design is at the core of these plans.’

The deadline for the application of submissions is 28 November. For more information visit

    At the moment I am in Canada but I am EU citizen as well. I am not sure if you will be interested talking to me but people with my experience a pretty flexible in the medium they work. I am also a holder of Master of Fine Art degree which could be very beneficial to you. I can swing artistically any project in any direction necessary.

    Dear Madam / Sir,

    I would like to introduce myself to you and your company. I have been working as a Senior Art Director and Art Director for the last ten and half years, leading teams of professionals local and international (graphic artists and designer, photographers, prepress operators and printing crews) in order to create successful graphic’s campaigns.

    My experience managing different teams has allowed me to art directed, design and worked on over 100 photo shoots and I have designed and produced around 220 sample books and an extensive number of advertisements for the industry and different clients. I have worked with studios in USA and Canada art directing stylists, photographers and models to create high-end fashion, home and lifestyle photography for clients ranging from Raymond Waites and Albert van Luit to Seabrook and Sunworthy, Ferrari, Disney and Sesame Street.

    I am well familiar with all digital and printing techniques and the importance of color impact for web, multimedia and printing. I am also familiar with branding developing and marketing consistency in order to maintain a strong brand presence. I have been responsible for creating, building and maintaining brand awareness and brand consistency and I know its importance to a marketing campaign, through conventional means as well as digital or social media networking avenues.

    My broad experience in the web design, multimedia and digital design area covers web sites, multimedia presentations, digital manipulation and interactivity on number of projects and for extended number of clients from web sites and multimedia to TV and commercial 3D production. Website navigation and usability combined with an edgy graphics are just a small part of my passion and knowledge.

    Knowing the importance of deadlines, I have been working with people and managing them over the last ten years with one thing on my mind – the project has to be delivered on time, on budget, and with uncompromising quality. Working with people to overcome problems and challenges on different projects, turning challenges and problems into opportunities.

    I am looking for a position within your organization that will allow me to share my experience with others and to be useful to them with my knowledge.
