A BA or BFA in design or related field from a top university
Ability and desire to work independently and serve as a point of contact for design projects
Full working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite. Expertise in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
Working knowledge of four-color printing, contemporary web practices and large-format printing

You don't need to be a professional copywriter, but should be comfortable whipping copy into shape--or collaborating with a copywriter to do so--when it just isn't meshing with your designs
More About You
You thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative work environment and are a master at time management. You enjoy working with people in a variety of roles across multiple departments. Your portfolio has a clean, iconic, borderline minimalist design aesthetic. You geek out over grid systems and have a strong appreciation for good typography. You pay extremely close attention to detail -- you find yourself critiquing movie posters, advertisements, and menus when you go out with your friends. No matter the task, you''re not afraid to have fun in your design and take some risks.
In addition to a cover letter and resume, please send a web portfolio or PDFs with samples of your best design work.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
