Graphic Designer (Mid Level) WhiteSpace is looking for a visual problem solver. Someone with an eye for form and color, and who may love fonts just a little too much (mmm, look at the curve on that lower-case ‘g’). We want someone with an optimistic attitude and who is willing to pour his or her heart and soul into a project knowing that a client may just rip it to shreds once it’s complete. Yes, in other words, we’re searching for a graphic designer. To qualify, you need a lot more than just a copy of Photoshop. You must be trained in the technical aspects of graphic design and have a true love for conveying a clear message through a visual medium. That’s the fun part. WhiteSpace graphic designers communicate using shapes, pixels, colors and fonts on print, websites and social media. We use photography, illustration and digital animation. We use packaging, billboards, buses and faces of buildings. Heck, we’ll use flags, blimps and smoke signals if we think they’d be effective. So if you want to get a foot in the door at a thriving, award-winning agency, this position may be for you. If you meet the qualifications, why not find out?
