Description

POSITION OBJECTIVE

The Graphic Designer helps raise Case Western Reserve’s stature as a leading national research university through development of print materials that reflect the university’s distinct visual style— and, on occasion, digital ones. This individual will excel in the creation of compelling design approaches that help inform, educate and inspire constituencies within and well beyond the campus. The Graphic Designer will produce these works in close collaboration with the Creative Director and UMC colleagues responsible for conveying the intent of these pieces. The Graphic Designer also helps ensure that every university project complies with brand requirements, reflects best practices for design and visual presentation, and fully achieves the assignment’s goals. This individual also will employ exceptional interpersonal skills in building positive relationships with UMC colleagues, university clients and commercial suppliers.

This individual will demonstrate a passion for design excellence, as well as enthusiasm for stretching creatively to produce works that are as appealing as they are effective. The Graphic Designer also will possess strong strategic and critical thinking skills, and apply them in engaging with clients and colleagues, brainstorming of concepts, executing, revising, and delivering the finished effort. Lastly, this individual will stay aware of evolving and emerging trends in visual communication—along with relevant technological advances.
