Get Involved with IP1
IP1 Wants You!
IP1 is unique. Our ideas and projects are led and devised by volunteers. That is why we need you. Challenge yourself and contribute to our magazine, website, marketing or promotions and get your talent noticed.
At IP1 we welcome all kinds of designers, we are interested in your conceptual ideas as well as your technical skills. Our design team work to a set brief and are given a style guide before they begin, which explains our design rules. Apply to join the design team now!
We pride ourselves on the fact that all our imagery is 100% original. Not an image bank in sight. As a photographer working for us you will be asked to provide work to a set brief. You might go out on a shoot with a band, or maybe going to an event. Apply to join the photography team now!
Writing for IP1 is all about a good idea and speaking to people who can give you that all-important quote. Of course writing skills do help, but we are keen to encourage new writers and those who have never written before. So, whatever your experience, apply to join the writing team now!
In recent months we have branched out into illustration, and it is now an invaluable part of what we do. Characters, cartoons or more naturalistic work, whatever your style, we want to hear from you. Apply to join the illustration team now!
IP1 believes the web is a great way to build a community and get people noticed and involved. We need web designers, moderators, blog writers, and people to run our social networking accounts.
This is possibly the most important part of what we do. Distribution of our magazines and promotional materials may not sound like fun, but if you’ve got the gift of the gab and like talking to people then we want to hear from you. Think you could become an IP1 enthusiast and our public voice? Then apply to join our promotions team now!
If you’re skilled at admin or think you could help manage a project then we may have an opportunity for you. For an opportunity to get involved in project management and a more intrinsic role in the organisation please get in touch. All positions are subject to an informal interview and CRB check.
What to expect
A voluntary placement at IP1 is designed to fit around you. We meet as a team every Thursday evening and we recommend that you attend at least two meetings a month or keep in touch regularly via email if you can’t make meetings. For more information please see our volunteer handbook.
Thanks to volunteering for IP1 I have now landed a job as a Junior Internet Designer for a magazine publisher, and confidence in my design abilities has grown!
