Freelance Graphic Designer
Don’t think there are enough Pantone® colors in the world? Geek out on kerning pairs? Love designing concepts that sing? We need you! The Freelance Graphic Designer (FGD) at LKF Marketing is responsible for executing design and collaborating on the production of all things print and web. The FGD works with the direction of the creative department to fulfill project design parameters.
Strong concepting and designs skills are needed to communicate ideas that inform and inspire users. Clear communication skills, trouble-shooting ability, file organization, and collaboration skills are critical. Must be an expert in Adobe CC applications (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop) and Microsoft applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Experience in web content management systems (WordPress), HTML, and CSS are a plus.
Most often, FGD would need to be on-site to collaborate with staff on short-turn projects. Occasionally larger projects could be worked on remotely.
Bachelor’s or Associate’s degree in Graphic Design with a minimum of three years of experience in a professional environment, agency, or similar.
