NKY Health – Help Capture our History

NKY Health is seeking creative folks to help perk up the interior space by showing some of their history and accomplishments that they are so proud of.

They are looking for folks who can:

  1. Use their basic timeline historical photos to storyboard some creative approaches for our space.
  2. Add to the timeline and photos.
  3. Execute the approved plan

This could be one individual, a team of folks, or several individuals working one at a time.

They are a goverment agency, so if they do pay, it’s not likely to be much. Use this as an opportunity to build your portfolio!
