FVM - Graphic Designer

FVM is looking for a passionate Graphic Designer who’s driven by strategic thinking — someone who not only produces compelling work, but who is also motivated to deeply understand our clients’ businesses and approach challenging projects with genuine curiosity.

Show us a portfolio that provides context for your work and demonstrates your knowledge, talent and craft across a variety of media and project types. We’re looking for a designer comfortable with: logos and visual identity; web, interactive and digital products; advertising, print media, banner ads, emails, landing pages, event signage and other typical marketing tactics. Design for design’s sake doesn’t impress us much – we want to know what your projects’ objectives were and how you achieved them. We’re just as interested in the thinking you contributed to the work as we are in the work itself. Show us what and tell us why.

We assume you know your way around Adobe software. You should have solid written and verbal communication skills; be comfortable giving and receiving critical feedback, presenting and making a case for your work; collaborate well with other designers, developers, writers, strategists, account managers, etc.; and take ownership of projects and mentor junior team members.
