Position Reports To:

Position Description: 

A Washington, DC-based strategic creative agency is looking to engage an experienced, interactive design-savvy Graphic Designer in an on-site, temporary position.

The hiring organization has made it clear that they will definitely be looking to hire one or more full-time designers within the next few months, so it is possible that this temporary role could turn into a full-time position if such a transition is of interest to all involved parties after the temporary assignment has been underway for at least a few weeks.

So, the hiring organization is open to considering qualified candidates who are interested in either of the following situations:

  1. mid- to long-term, on-site temporary engagement;
  2. short- to mid-term temporary engagement AND THEN a transition to full-time staff.

We're posting this announcement in mid-June with the hope of identifying someone terrific who can start ASAP and work in the temporary role in an ongoing capacity for up to a few months. The assignment might last just a month or two, or could possibly continue for three or four months. At the moment, we're asking applicants to indicate definite availability for at least two months.

OVERVIEW:
Projects will span the typical online and offline marketing mix. There's a good chance you might work on any/all of the following: website designs, landing pages, social media graphics, graphic e-mails, brochures, even collateral and/or presentations. The agency's clients also reflect a typical DC mix, including everything from international, consumer-facing corporations to B2B service provides with household names; to non-profits of all sizes and even some political campaigns.

Brainstorm has supported the client organization on dozens and dozens of projects since 2010. We can provide plenty of additional information to the most well qualified applicants.

HOURS / LOCATION / WORK ENVIRONMENT:
We are only interested in receiving applications and inquiries from individuals who can work:

  1. 40 dayside hours/week
  2. On-site at the employer workplace five days/week;
  3. In the K Street corridor of NW, Washington, DC;
  4. Starting mid- to late-June;
  5. Continuing for at least two months.

PAY RATE:
Based on conversations we have had with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a pay rate range of $50/hour to $70/hour. The actual rate offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. It will also be based on some or all of the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

Brainstorm Creative Resources strives to pay competitively! However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay less experienced applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced applicants can expect that we will make a strong case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range.

We have qualified this role as good fit for a mid-career professional, but we would be glad to hear from talented early career or highly experienced individuals who clearly communicate in cover letters, why they are interested in the assignment.
