Progressive political design firm with edgy aesthetic seeks designer.
We’re a quickly growing political design firm; we create logos, websites, and direct mail for progressive political candidates and organizations.
Our mission is to strengthen Colorado’s communities by supporting good elected officials, good candidates, and good organizations, and we think the best way to do that is to create clean, effective designs and websites.
We’re looking for a graphic designer to join our team. We’re pretty picky.
You need to be a kick-ass designer, with an edgy aesthetic who can really kick up the quality of political design work. You need to be smart, and you need to be fast, and you need to be willing to accept the fact that working for worthy people and causes is part of the compensation package.
We dig: web standards, clean design, effective, snappy color combinations, and Martinis.
We don’t dig: flash (for the most part), missed deadlines, tired and overused political tripe, the font comic sans and Alabama Slammers.
Ideally, you’ll start working on contract, and then move up to full time. But we’re flexible. Email us your portfolio. If we’re interested, we’ll be in touch.
You had me at Martini.
