Why Work Here?

“Our core purpose it to create opportunities for people to do what they do best.”

Adfero is seeking a full-time Graphic Designer to join our growing, ambitious firm. You are passionate about problem solving, think deeply about creative concepts, communicate exceptionally well, think strategically, and act as a proactive team player.

Within the collaborative team environment, you will work on advertising, reputation campaigns, branding, public education, and issue advocacy projects that take the form of digital advertising (social and display), websites, video, print, out of home advertising, infographics, datagraphics, illustrations, interactive, signage, presentations, conferences, swag, an occasional food truck wrap etc...

Potential client work will vary between trade associations, corporations, the federal government, as well as Adfero branded initiatives. All of this will be done in a collaborative environment working with creative, account and interactive teams.

You will:

  • Be a member of the Creative team. This means that you will meet daily with the team to discuss project pain points, get and give help, and discuss design theory.
  • Be a member of multiple account teams. This means you will be responsible for the conception and production of any creative projects on said account teams.
  • Be the design expert on your client teams. The teams will look to you to make recommendations on the best process for your work, and how we can work within the parameters of any given project to deliver the best work possible.
  • Be a natural collaborator. This means you are invested in the client’s success, not just in your specific design tasks. This can manifest as writing headlines, keeping up with news relevant to the client, or simply asking non design questions.
  • Have a passion for design. Whether that means design thinking, typography, motion, or UX, we will be looking for you to find your unique specialty within the creative team.
  • Identify growth areas with your client teams. At Adfero we are constantly looking for new opportunities to bring more value to our clients. Account teams will look to you to be an active participant in brainstorming new projects we can pitch to our clients.
  • Pitch your ideas. Good ideas do not sell themselves. You will read the room and consider the motivations of all stakeholders when crafting concept pitches.
  • Be a lifelong student. Whether it be soft skills like managing up, active listening, or hard skills like photo editing or 3D modeling, you are energized by a new opportunity to learn.


We’re looking for someone who has:

  • 2-7 years of design experience, agency experience a plus
  • Bachelor's degree in related discipline
  • Proficient in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop
  • Experience in UX/UI and motion design a plus. While XD and After Effects are not required experience, we do use both programs heavily, and you will be expected to get up to speed quickly.
  • Ability to multi-task and prioritize multiple simultaneous deadlines and schedules
  • Solid presentation, interpersonal and written communication skills
  • Team player with the ability to both collaborate and work independently on projects
  • Initiative, with a commitment to continuous learning and improving (Adfero provides a professional development budget)
  • The ability to pass security clearance
  • An openness to our Core Values:
    • Harambee. We all pull together.
    • Learn from mistakes. Strive to improve.
    • Be responsible for results.
    • Respect the dignity of every person and the abilities of each individual.

Please submit a resume, cover letter, and a link to your portfolio website when applying.
