Company Order Number: 1428
# of openings: 1


A Washington, DC-based strategic creative agency is looking to engage a Senior Designer in a full-time, on-site, temporary role starting immediately and continuing through at least the end of September. We are posting this announcement in mid-July with the hope of identifying someone terrific who can start as soon as possible.

There is a possibility this temporary role could turn into a full-time position. The designer selected will be replacing a full-time designer who is moving out of the region. The hiring organization will definitely re-fill the full-time position. However, they have not yet decided whether the full-time role will be at the Senior Designer level or higher or lower. Decisions regarding the full-time position will not impact this temporary role. However, we will aim to update this job posting regarding the full-time position as new information becomes available. 

We are ideally seeking candidates who can demonstrate through online portfolio examples, that they have at least baseline interactive design and production skills. Deep interactive design experience (i.e. concepting original interface designs, developing user experience flows, etc.) will be useful, but are not a requirement. Interactive development skills are not necessary. The range of potential design projects is broad. There's a good chance you might work on any/all of the following: social media graphics, landing pages, graphic e-mails, website designs, brochures, print-oriented collateral and/or presentations. The agency's clients reflect a typical DC mix, including everything from international, consumer-facing corporations to B2B service provides with household names; to non-profits of all sizes and even some political campaigns. 

Brainstorm has supported the client organization on dozens of projects and hires since 2010. We have helped them hire and engage with some terrific designers! We can provide plenty of additional information regarding our experience with the client, to the most well qualified applicants. 

We have qualified this role as good fit for a senior-level professional, but we would be glad to hear from talented mid-career individuals who clearly communicate in cover letters, why they are interested in the assignment. 
A High level of proficiency in the use of Adobe CC tools that are relevant to the work outlined above. 

We are only interested in receiving applications and inquiries from individuals who can work:
(1) 40 dayside hours/week, 
(2) on-site at the employer workplace four to five days/week; 
(3) in the K Street corridor of NW, Washington, DC; 
(4) starting no later than late July;
(5) through at least September 2019. 

Based on conversations we have had with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a temporary engagement pay rate range of $40/hour to $75/hour for an expected 40 hours of work per week. It's worth noting that the annualized equivalent salaries that correspond to these pay rate ranges are $80K to $150K. 

The actual rate and/or salary offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. It will also be based on some or all of the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

Brainstorm Creative Resources pays competitively and actively encourages our employer clients to do the same. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay less experienced applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced applicants can expect that we will make a strong, evidentiary case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range.
