Eighty2degrees

Are you interested in making a positive social impact in the world with your work? Does the process of solving creative challenges in meaningful ways for awesome clients drive you? If so, we’d like to hear from you!

We’re adding a full-time impact-driven graphic designer with at least 5 years of professional experience to the Eighty2degrees team in our Washington, DC studio. Our culture is one where our personal values and professional goals align, and where “work” is something we truly care about and enjoy participating in. In this role, you’ll have an opportunity to help us grow a small creative studio into something larger than any one of us could accomplish alone.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Design and create projects across all media, including but not limited to: branding, print, infographics, websites, digital and print campaigns, social media, and presentations.
  • Collaborate on, manage, and execute high quality creative design for numerous clients and projects, with often-changing demands, across multiple media formats.
  • Push boundaries. Push yourself. Push the entire team
  • Work effectively with internal colleagues, long-distance freelance collaborators, and external clients to complete projects within allocated timelines and budgets.
  • Understand that timelines and scope will sometimes/often change. Work to avoid project creep, when possible. Show grace under pressure.
  • Participate in client and staff meetings, and occasionally serve as an ambassador of the studio.
  • Don’t take yourself too seriously, have fun, and respect others’ perspectives.
  • Be confident and create great work, but remain humble enough to understand that we’re all capable of learning more and becoming better.

EDUCATION

  • Minimum BA/BFA in Graphic Design or some similar program
  • Active engagement in keeping ahead of the curve regarding new technologies and design methodologies

SKILLS

  • Mastery of the current Adobe Creative Suite
  • Additional skills, such as digital/web design, social media, illustration, photography, and/or a basic understanding of front-end web development are beneficial, but not required
  • Interpersonal skills, combined with articulate verbal and written communication skills, are vital
