Job Description

Our client in Waltham has a longterm onsite assignment through the end of the year with a strong likelihood of extending even longer. 

As a production artist, you have a passion for detail, precision, and doing things right the first time.

What’s more, you have a designer’s eye and you apply this to projects large and small. Whether you are creating just the right layout solution for a templated brochure, resizing an ad, or creating a complex form from scratch, you understand the need for design consistency, and you have the patience to make it right. You are indispensable — delivering projects on time, supporting colleagues and clients alike!

registration kits and related materials, forms and documents.

 Creating charts, graphs, and other support materials

 Customizing template materials for use by our advisors and their clients

 Creatively solving for client design needs while maintaining the integrity of the templated piece

 Creating complex forms that are integral to the business using the interactive features of

InDesign

 Handling standard logo additions and color changes

 Managing shared graphics and file directories

 Assisting and supporting a team of graphic designers and marketing colleagues

Core strengths

 5+ years of experience in an in-house or agency production environment

 Expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop) and Microsoft

Office (Word, PPT)

 Mac and PC expertise

 Exceptional organization skills, attention to detail, and the ability to work under tight deadlines

 Great typography and document construction skills; must be able to use templates and style

sheets (including GREP styles)

 An understanding of design, layout, brand standards, and knowledge of 2-color and 4-color

printing

 Passionate about pixels and ink

 A master juggler. Expect to work on multiple projects at the same time and can handle a high

volume of work

 Precise and methodical—you QC your own work, it’s accurate and you work quickly.

 Capable of working independently, once briefed on the project.

 A team player —you work well with others on this large initiative.

 Web knowledge a plus.
