Wanted: ‘trail building’ graphic illustrator

The DIRTT project consortium has published a tender aimed at graphic illustrators, preferable with experience in the mountain biking / trail building industry, to (re) design technical illustrations for trail building training. These graphics will be used as open-source technical instructive material for various educational programs delivered by the partners of the DIRTT project.

The aim of the DIRTT project (Developing Intereuropean Resources for Trail building Training) is to develop an educational framework and training toolkit for people active in the trail building sector, addressing the needs of professionals and volunteers in the field of planning, design, construction, maintenance, and management of mountain bike trails.

Although a lot of training material and illustrations already exist, there’s still a need to redesign somewhat outdated illustrations and design new ones to capture some of the latest insights and techniques in trail building, design or maintenance.

A more comprehensive briefing of the tender can be downloaded here. Design agencies can submit their proposal until the 4th of July, 2022.
