Hey folks, I am Glasgow-based and just opened my own brand as talent scout. This is my journey throughout the world in discovering talented artists that I believe will be the future. Being it very experimental, now the availability required is freelance. Indeed, you would be working on a project base. However, this should become part time, as the development of my ideas relies on the person that helps me too. As these positions are unpaid, I will be providing as much initiative, freedom of expression and exclusivity as possible. My project is quite specific, therefore, a genuine interest into electronic music (no EDM) is an essential part of the game. 1) Edit and develop my Squarespace (www.francescomagagni.com) 2) Create graphics for social media when required (i.e. logo, flyers)
