The work spans public, private, and nonprofit sectors, with a full client list available at emergentmethod.com/clients.

Emergent Method considers the quality of its deliverables and communications to be a key differentiator in how clients are served. A big part of this is due to how much Emergent Method values and prioritizes design. Emergent Method is seeking a graphic design consultant who can play a key role in helping tell better stories through digital and print visualization, make complicated information clear and usable for a variety of audiences, and get people excited about Emergent Method’s work and the work of its clients. Given the breadth and variety of Emergent Method's clients and projects,  team members tend to be prepared to change hats and perform new or different types of work at any given moment, and while graphic design will be a focus for this person, Emergent Method might also ask you to help develop a proposal, participate in an outreach effort, or plan a tailgate.

While Emergent Method is looking for a candidate who can be flexible and play a number of roles, we are also looking for them to be able to execute the following responsibilities to a high standard of excellence:

  • Work with teammates and client to structure, format, and design compelling, meaningful web and print deliverables from concept (research, sketches, wireframes) to completion, which are a pleasure to consume and easy to use
  • Think strategically about branding and designing visual communications systems. This means they are able to take a step back and carefully consider client needs, identify and define problems, seek input from various audiences and stakeholders, and plan and execute creative solutions in response to what they’ve learned.

  • Plan and facilitate meetings, both internally and with clients, that focus on and guide collaborators through the process of planning and producing communications and/or strong brands
  • Provide subject matter expertise around visual design, user experience, and branding
  • Develop visual assets in a variety of formats for client projects, including but not limited to:

    • email templates
    • infographics and maps
    • document templates and presentations
    • social media ads, headers and other forms of digital marketing
    • Microsoft Word and PowerPoint templates
  • Work with teammates to produce stand-out proposals on behalf of Emergent Method
  • Maintain ability to balance both a high standard of quality and speed in productivity
  • Able to receive creative feedback from design team and clients with ease and sustain a desire to learn
  • Collaborate with teammates to maintain, improve, and expand Emergent Method brand and promotional materials, including website, marketing collateral, stationery and business cards, templates, and social media
  • Look for and pursue business development opportunities and build relationships
  • Keep up with trends in technology and design to help keep the firm and its practices ahead of the curve
  • Provide feedback on communications and contribute otherwise in minor roles on a variety of projects

As with all team members, this person will be expected to strive to build strong internal and external relationships, support others, enhance company culture, and represent the Emergent Method brand and core values both internally and externally.

Ideally, this person will have a degree and four or more years of experience in graphic design (web and print), visual marketing and communications, or a related field, but these pre-requisites are not be required. Candidates should have a solid understanding of layout, typography, color and other design principles, and have strong communication skills with the ability to backup design decisions. The ideal candidate will also have a working knowledge of HTML and CSS with the ability to translate flat, visual mockups into functioning, cross-browser compliant, responsive mockups. Practical experience creating websites using content management systems such as Craft, Wordpress, or other comparable platforms is also a plus.

The ideal candidate must be comfortable working with Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator) as well as Microsoft Office products, and must show experience and willingness to work with a variety of supplemental applications for areas such as project management, social media management, and collaboration.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, résumé, portfolio, and three references to jobs@emergentmethod.com. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
