We’re looking for a senior level visual designer (7+ years of experience) who can tackle large-scale web design projects, from concept to completion, on an hourly, contract basis.

Our web-design engagements last anywhere from 3-6 months, with a varying workload between 10 - 20 hours a week. During that time, you’ll collaborate daily with UX researchers, information architects, and content strategists, while working closely with our creative director and other design staff. You’ll attend meetings, participate in client discovery, present concepts to clients (and internal teams), and be responsible for daily communications as the project moves forward.
