About the Job

In this role, you will serve as a liaison between our clients and graphic designers.

Responsibilities Include

  • Gathering all required information, including content, design direction, and timeline expectations, from the client for creative design tasks and projects
  • Assigning and managing project tasks among our designers
  • Delivering quality, timely, and on-brand design deliverables to the client

  • Occasional liaising among web developers for small website tasks may also be required.

Experience & Skills

  • Minimum 3 years experience in creative project management role
  • Excellent organization skills. You would be responsible for keeping up with the project flow in Trello, which requires timely and complete delivery of assets to our designers, giving them ample time for creative design. You would also be responsible for prioritizing tasks, setting due dates, and assigning tasks based on designers’ unique skill sets and bandwidth/availability.
  • Self-motivated problem solver. As a small team, we’re looking for someone who will be able to independently steer the project in the right direction and solve problems as they arise. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the client is happy with the final result on every project and can count on our team as a quality, reliable design partner. Occasional external research for design inspiration, examples or sourcing additional contractors for certain assignments may be required.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication. We’re looking for someone who can become our clients’ confidant and advisor and relay assignments to designers clearly.
  • Eye for design. Although professional design experience is not required, some level of design savvy is important for this role. Basic knowledge or Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, mainly) is a plus.
