Part-time Freelance Graphic/Digital Designer in Portland, Oregon

Portland, OR

We’re looking for a collaborative, versatile graphic designer to partner with our super busy art director. Are you happy doing everything from executing high-level creative concepts to roll-up-your-sleeves production work? Are you comfortable sharing your work with others, taking and integrating feedback, and working together with the Brand Team and other creatives towards the best possible work for the client? Do you like dogs? Like, kind of a lot of dogs? If so, then this might be the gig for you!

Our dream freelancer will have the following skills:

  • Strong graphic design sensibilities with super sharp attention to detail

  • 3-5 years of agency experience working in digital, web, and print design utilizing up-to-date best practices

  • Strong proficiency in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign

  • Print production and basic pre-press

  • Designing in Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets

  • Great time management, communication skills, self-starting and problem-solving

  • An easygoing nature and desire/ability to take feedback, collaborate, and work on a close-knit team

  • Adaptability to a constantly changing, fast-paced environment

  • Ability to prioritize and juggle multiple clients, brands, and projects in any given week

  • Some experience with HTML and CSS, working in Google Web Developer for HTML5, video editing, or hand-drawn or vector illustration are a plus, but not required; liking dogs isn’t a necessity, but based on the number of dogs in the office, it’s a plus

 

Responsibilities include:

  • Graphic Design for creative campaigns in various formats including websites, digital ads, emails, print ads, large-scale expo graphics, billboards, brochures, posters, and more.

  • Design visual comps for responsive websites using Sketch or Illustrator

  • Work with multiple teams on a regular basis (our Digital Manager on digital ad campaigns, our Web Developer on landing page design, and our Creative and Art Directors on brand, print, and design)

  • Ability to juggle multiple projects for a wide variety of clients while meeting strict deadlines 

  • Ability to stay true to established brand guidelines, while still knowing how to push creative boundaries

  • Nice-to-haves: ability to design mobile-responsive emails and understand A/B testing basics as well as design static and animated display ads, including HTML5 (Google Web Designer)

If this is you, please send us a resumé, cover letter, and a link to your online portfolio stuffed with samples of print ads, collateral, websites, brand identity, digital and banner ads.

Please note: While most of this work can be done remotely, we do ask that you live in the greater Portland, Oregon area.
