Visual Media Designers - Federal Studio -

Mar 29, 2016

McLean, VA


Agent: Rebecca P.

Job #: 100196

Salary: Salary + Full Benefits

Job Description

Be a part of Aquent Studios' new design team that is redefining design in the government. We're seeking designers to be responsible for creating media products used for print, web, interactive, mobile and video production. This design studio will work within a government security agency, creating media products used for print, web, interactive, mobile and video production.

This is NOT a typical government design job. This studio is elevating how and what type of design should be used within a security agency setting. The work is polished, fresh and functional. 

This role will be great for designers with:

  • Experience working with a variety of media. The designers that call themselves “generalists”, and who believe that variety is the spice of life. Projects could include everything from: corporate identity and publication design to product or event promotion, original artist concepts, and infographics.
  • A comfort level managing their own work from concept through execution.
  • A sense of humor.
  • An active, top secret clearance with sensitive compartmented information (SCI) access approval. However, if you don't have one, we'll pay for and manage the process, which means your background should be squeaky clean. 


  • Bachelor’s degree in graphic or interactive design, visual media or a related field.
  • 3+ years of professional graphic design experience, demonstrating knowledge and application of visual media principles, theory, practices and trends. Along with at least three years of experience using industry standard software tools (Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign at a minimum).
  • A portfolio with 10+ samples that demonstrate visual media design expertise utilizing industry standard software tools, showcasing the designer’s skills, knowledge, and competencies in design for multiple media.

Please apply through our site. If you experience technical difficulties, please email me Rebecca.

Vitamin T/Aquent/Aquent Studios is an equal opportunity employer. We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, veteran status, and other legally protected characteristics.

Client Description:

Changing how the government does design is Aquent Studios federal division’s mission, and we’re making that happen with the launch of a brand new Studio dedicated to supporting the Intelligence Community. Aquent offers the government a different way of looking at developing and executing strategic communications by providing customized solutions that deliver cost-effective, on-brand deliverables across a broad spectrum: print, multimedia, web, video, social media, and mobile.
