Junior Graphic Designer

ANTICIPATED START DATE: AUGUST 2021 (OR SOONER IF YOU’RE AVAILABLE)

About Us
Interkom is a unique boutique virtual marketing communications agency. The Interkom team is located across Ontario and Alberta. We are a small but mighty team (aged 26 to 67), who work remotely. We are proud to have been in the marketing communications —and more recently fundraising—business for over 41 years. Our clients come from a variety of sectors including municipal, not-for-profit, business-to-business and business-to-consumer.

About the Position
As the junior designer, you will be one busy gal or guy. Working alongside our Senior Art Director/Graphic Designer and other team members at Interkom, you will be responsible for the design and production of creative concepts including websites, print and digital marketing, branding collateral and much more.

The Ideal Candidate
You are a design fiend. Fonts excite you and you have a strong sense of colour. You are able to work interchangeably between designs for print and online with ease. You may even dabble in video editing. You can sketch out your ideas (an ability to freehand draw is an asset, but not necessary). You can articulate yourself well and are not shy about sharing your ideas and opinions. You take criticism and feedback well even if you are sometimes cringing on the inside.

You know how to create a layout, but most importantly, you also know how execute a layout that efficiently goes to print or on the web—production is an integral part of every project.

You must be able to manage multiple client projects on any given day—quick turnaround is a must, with the flexibility to jump back and forth between several projects on-the-go at the same time!

You are a creative thinker and are always looking to produce new ideas and creative solutions. You also demonstrate an interest in and knowledge of latest design trends and best practices and are willing to take courses from time to time if needed.

If you….

  1. Have a degree/formal training in Graphic Design
  2. Have a minimum of 1-2 years of experience (agency experience an asset)
  3. Are fluent with Mac OS and Adobe Creative Cloud (Version 5.7)
  4. Have plenty of experience to design and execute for print, web, and Social Media

And want to work remotely with a small fast-paced agency, please submit your resume and portfolio (electronic or website link) to solutions@interkom.ca.
