Job Description

Dodd Creative is currently seeking experienced freelance graphic designers for a number of upcoming print design projects. The work will primarily be off-site (so you’ll need your own equipment, software, etc), but we would prefer a candidate who can occasionally come into our Deep Ellum office for meetings, presentations, etc.

Our current projects are fairly large in scope, so this is probably not an opportunity for a moonlighter. We would prefer a candidate who is available during normal business hours, and is a full-time freelancer.


Job Responsibilities

Depending on the project, candidates may be asked to take on any (or all) stages of the design process, from concept development, to page layout & revisions, to mechanical art production. Typical projects include multi-page booklets, pocket folders, brochures & flyers, stationery packages, postcards, signs, and banners.


Job Qualifications

All candidates must have:   

  • a four-year degree in graphic design
  • 3+ years of reall-world design & production experience
  • a great portfolio demonstrating a conceptual approach to design, excellent typography skills and proficiency with logos, stationery, and multi-page documents (editorial, annual reports, catalogs, booklets, etc.), in a wide breadth of styles
  • very strong technical skills (mastery of Adobe Creative Suite, especially Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator) and an deep understanding of how to build press-ready files with such tools.
  • a thorough understanding of print technologies

In addition, we expect all our freelancers to be highly dependable and professional.


How to Apply

Applicants MUST submit a résumé and online portfolio link or PDF samples of your work (limit emailed/uploaded files to 10MB). Candidates without a portfolio and résumé will NOT be considered for this position. Please do not contact us by phone.

No agents or recruiters, please.
