The Design Loop

Flexible Part Time Assistant Graphic Designer (Chicago (River West))

Posted on: March 13, 2013

I am seeking a part time graphic designer to help with a diverse range of high profile creative work. My small marketing and creative company serves an exciting base of clientele, mostly in the worlds of hospitality and real estate, and produces print and digital work ranging from basic Flash and HTML to direct mail campaigns, some simple collateral pieces, large format signage, and high-exposure print advertising.

This job offers a very flexible schedule, and will require 15-20 hours per week at $11 per hour. Our office is in my home near the Chicago Avenue Blue Line stop, but is comfortably professional and distinctly separate from my living areas. I like to keep the team in our office very diverse in style and skill set; I think the best way to grow as a designer is to be surrounded by other creative people and share ideas and approches. You will work as a part of a small team, but will need to be a self-starter and feel passionate about your work.

You will need to have a passion for interesting design as well as a grasp on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Additional skills in Flash and HTML are beneficial! Our clients constantly create opportunities for us to grow and learn since the projects that land in our office are always different and original. Accordingly, you can have any variety of skills as long as you’re also excited about growing and developing your creative vision and technical skill.

This role is probably a great fit for someone with an alternative situation — a student, a stay-at-home parent who needs to get out for a few hours each week, someone looking to break into the graphic design career they studied for, etc.

Send me some samples of your work and let me know your situation. If it seems like a fit, we can meet for coffee.

Compensation: $11/hour, 15-20 hours per week
