Designer Search


Rude Dude Productions is looking for a designer for the new Nexus and the Moth comic strip!  This is an ongoing, freelance, paid position with deadlines. 

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 1 week from the date you receive the instruction email.   We will receive applications through September 1st.


  • You must be 18 or have parental consent to submit work for review.
  • You have worked with printers before and will need no supervision when sending files or making updates.
  • All content submitted must be 100% original and created by you or in the public domain.


If you have read the above, qualify, and would like to apply, please read the below entry information then email to with "Designer Search Inquiry" in the subject line.

Include a cover letter in the body of the email (do not attach) and a link to your work online.   If Steve likes your work we will send you an email with further instructions


This is more of a design competition than a straight application.  Our regular designer is finishing his work with us with the 2015-20 sketchbook then moving on for other pursuits.  It's been a good run with him and he will be missed.

Part 2 of the competition is designing front and back ends pages, credits page, introduction and the table of contents pages.  We give you all the text and plenty of artwork.  If you are not willing to design those pages please do not apply.

Please be aware that the winning designer will use THEIR OWN design.  We are not using any other design ideas and we are not asking designers to enter to steal free ideas. 

We are looking for a designer willing to take direction, but not one that needs to be micromanaged.  Steve always allows the designer to come up with their own ideas first.

That's it.  Keep checking back on this page for updates.
We will notify finalists via email.
