Posted 3 months ago

A mid-size creative agency in DC is looking to engage a Graphic Designer in a part-time role starting on 9/25 and ending on or around 11/1. The creative agency we are supporting launched in 2016 and has been growing steadily. Brainstorm Creative Resources has been supporting them throughout the last year, and two members of the team were previously Brainstorm clients elsewhere.

One of the assignment stakeholders has described the scope of work this way: "We'd like to work with designer who can join our team at our office for a few weeks. We expect a lot of the projects the designer works on will be focused on designing materials for: (1) events - signs, folders, backdrops, etc; (2) digital display/social creative; and (3) out-of-home creative.

REQUIRED SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE:

  • At least 3+ years of consistent experience working as a professional Graphic Designer. More would be great!

  • BA or BFA or BS in Design is preferred.

  • Previous experience in a creative agency setting is a plus.

  • Online or PDF portfolio of work produced for internal/external clients, which includes numerous examples of projects you have completed that might be considered relevant to the position we are looking to fill.

  • Examples that demonstrate your experience working on multi-channel campaigns are a plus.

  • Excellent typography skills.

  • The office is located in the NOMA neighborhood of DC, and is a half-mile walk from the NoMa-Gallaudet Metrorail station.

RATE:

Brainstorm Creative Resources is offering a pay rate of between $45/hour and $65/hour. The actual rate offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. Brainstorm Creative Resources strives to pay competitively. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay early career applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced and appropriately qualified design professionals can expect that we will make a strong case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range.

Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that has been focused on placing creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with Washington, DC-area employers since 2003.
