Overview

Assemble is a creative digital and communications strategy agency that works with political organizations, issue campaigns, causes, businesses, and brands. We’re seeking a Graphic Designer to join our creative team through the 2022 election.

Our award-winning creative team is small but mighty. We are highly collaborative, and we keep our days exciting by working on a wide variety of projects—everything from websites to social media graphics to videos. We love projects that stretch our skills, flex our strengths, and make a positive impact on the world.

As a graphic designer at Assemble, you’ll be fully integrated into the creative team. You’ll make ads inspiring voters to head to the polls, help fund key Democratic campaigns, and raise awareness around important issues.

The ideal candidate will have a wide array of skills to apply to projects, with the flexibility to move among Adobe Creative Suite programs. Demonstrated strength in typography and composition are a must, and an interest in progressive politics is valuable.

This is a full-time position through the November 2022 general election with the potential to convert to a permanent position. Though this position is fully remote, Washington, D.C.-based candidates may be able to work out of our D.C. office part time.

Qualifications

  • Able to work quickly and effectively in Photoshop and Illustrator.
  • Demonstrated strength in typography and composition
  • High attention to detail
  • Quick and nimble—and cool under pressure.
  • Willing to try new things and learn new skills.
  • Take deadlines seriously, and occasionally work late to make them.

Not required, but valued

  • Familiarity with Figma
  • Familiarity with After Effects
  • Strong writing skills
  • Video editing skills, especially in Premiere.
  • Basic familiarity with HTML and CSS
  • Experience with campaigns or political advocacy, especially on digital teams
