Job Description

FWD.us is seeking to secure a contract with a talented Graphic Design Contractor who has a passion for immigration and criminal justice reform. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in impactful advocacy work through graphic design.

FWD.us is a bipartisan political organization that believes America’s families, communities, and economy thrive when more individuals are able to achieve their full potential.

Dedicated, on-demand design support for up to 40 hours per week. Some projects work will be rush (needing immediate attention) and some projects will be required outside of normal business hours and/or over the weekend. (Designer should expect roughly 10 hours a week to be outside of the standard Pacific office hours.)
Designer is expected to promptly respond to requests, including during non-standard office hours, and communicate any concerns or needs in a timely fashion.
Whenever possible, the Client will share requests during the standard Pacific office hours.
