Job Description

A locally-based design firm that has been producing great work for national audiences for two decades, is looking to engage a Senior Designer in a temporary, on-site assignment that will begin in June and continue through mid-November.

Our client is interested in identifying an experienced designer who has a great work ethic and is interested in contributing well-honed concepting, design and production skills to create a broad variety of products. The hiring organization currently supports these industries/verticals: entertainment (west coast TV and film studios), politics (Democrat and progressive campaigns), the non-profit sector.

Throughout 2018 the hiring organization will commit significant resources to the design and production of materials to support political campaigns. As we review applications for this position, we will be looking closely to determine candidates' strengths relative to the specific design, production and temperament demands of election-cycle design work. That said, we are interested in receiving applications from all talented designers who are interested in the eight-month, full-time commitment -- not just individuals who have previous experience working on political campaigns.

The employer has indicated there may be an opportunity for the person in this position to work from home one day each week.

Brainstorm Creative Resources has supported this organization for several years and has helped them hire full-time and temporary designers. We can share plenty of additional information with the most well qualified applicants.

Our client's workplace is highly accessible via Metrorail and Metrobus.

RATE:
Based on conversations we have had with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a pay rate range of $35/hr. to $50/hr.
