Captivate Media is looking for a talented graphic designer who: has a passion for all-things creative, can thrive under pressure, and also hates the font Papyrus. The perfect candidate is well rounded and can jump right into traditional projects (Logos, Packaging, Billboards, Point of Sale), but also understands how to design for digital/video (Motion Graphics, Banner Ads, Text on Screen, etc.). This position will also be responsible for creating storyboards and presentations – taking written or spoken ideas and converting them into a visual design that connects with the client/audience.
The ideal candidate is confident in their ideas and skills, but also comfortable with accepting feedback and direction.
