If you are someone who gets amped to sketch out new design concepts and zooming way in to a website to focus on every little pixel, we have the role for you. We are ecstatic to add an awesome Graphic Designer to our GNGF team. This position is initially part-time but will transition to a full-time hire for the right candidate that shows their grit and drive.
This is the ideal position for someone who has 2-3 years of experience in digital design or a related field and is ready to learn more. You are expected to have the ability and drive to understand our clients’ branding process, create clean-cut logo designs, and have excellent experience with both print and digital design requests to deliver top-notch, creative work.
You’ll collaborate with a team, have the freedom to try new techniques, and do what it takes to add value to our clients. After training, in addition to the activities listed above, you will begin to create website designs that transform into well-crafted, user-friendly websites that represent our clients’ unique brands. Our fast-paced environment requires you to adapt quickly, so experience with pivoting direction is a plus.
At GNGF, we believe in creating an engaging environment, with a healthy balance between having lots of fun and remaining accountable.
