Do you enjoy storytelling? Can you simplify complex topics for a diverse audience? Have experience in photography and video? We’re seeking qualified communications professionals for project support through a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process. The City Council identified expanded communications as a high priority to enhance public engagement, and we are looking for fresh ideas and enthusiastic expertise to support COBI Connects and photography/video services.
COBI Connects is a monthly newsletter that is printed and mailed to all households within the City. The newsletter was launched in 2019 as a top priority by the Council to inform the community about significant City topics. The consultant(s) will lead in the writing, editing, design, development and implementation of the newsletter layout with review and approval by City staff.
We also are seeking a consultant, with an eye for storytelling, to shoot photos and videos supporting City communications. The consultant will create an archive of photographs for, but not limited to, use on the City’s website, social media, COBI Connects, City Manager’s Report (weekly e-newsletter) and outreach materials. The professional should also have demonstrated expertise in video storytelling to support the development and production of videos for communications, education and marketing efforts.
The City strongly prefers consultant(s) who are available during business hours and willing to meet at City Hall, as needed, to ensure successful communication and workflow throughout the process.
