Freelance Graphic Designer

What We’re Looking For is a creative person who has the ability to make complex photo-manipulations look like seamless original photography but who can also use fonts and typography like a pro. You’d need to be able to take a bit of criticism, the ability to adapt to someone else’s ideas (and pretty quickly, at that) is a must. Communication skills and e-mail responsiveness, prioritization, ability to work independently, composition and traditional artistic talent are pretty key too.

If this description sounds like you and you’re an experienced freelancer, please send in your resume, PDF portfolio, or link to an online portfolio (make sure your portfolio link is in the body of an attached PDF resume - some sites will drop your active link from the online editor as if it were spam). We look forward to hearing from you!
