Duration- CONTRACT ENGAGEMENT to run May- August 30, 2013
Hourly pay rate- $34-39hr
Location- client prefers Talent live in driving distance to Bridgewater, NJ so that they can train onsite for the first month. Remote is fine after the training period.

Our client is a well known global insurance company and they have asked for our help in identifying a DESIGNER to CREATE INTERACTIVE PDF FORMS USING LIVECYCLE.

Our department is Form Services and we support the entire U.S. enterprise for now, with plans to move into international support.
We concentrate on forms. Electronic, online forms. No brochures, marketing materials, or four color pieces. Forms are black and white with heavy text. Little to no illustrations. Heavy tables. Heavily regulated by the state regulatory departments. And very technical. We are working with all levels of Adobe software to develop the forms, with great focus on Adobe Live Cycle--the intelligent adobe--which also requires some level of coding to drive the form's behavior.

A classic four color designer would not be happy with this assignment. We need a designer who is willing to address this level of work, and is adventurous and technical enough to delve into the coding aspect. Adobe LiveCycle experience would is IDEAL.

Requirements are a bit of a hybrid. This person must understand and have the experience applying design principles and methodologies as would any classically trained designer, but have the patience to deal with extremely heavy, complex text, and have the technical sway and savvy to dive into the coding (javascripting) necessary for the form's unique online behavior.

Must have experience designing forms in Adobe software, both InDesign and LiveCycle, which requires intelligent coding to support the form's dynamic behavior and ability to capture, cross fill and offload data from the form, as well as supporting Electronic signatures. Candidate must have a mix of two disciplines; javascripting and design. Must have knowledge of converting to fillable PDFs. Candidate must have a HIGH attention to detail and be able to proof his/her own work.

Work Location is Bridgewater NJ. We would prefer someone within reasonable traveling distance to the office because for the first month, we will require that person to be here with our Design team training. Thereafter, working remote is fine.

1. The candidate will be responsible for using high-end page layout software to create and revise business forms in a timely manner with a high degree of accuracy.
• Using supplied templates
• Based on client instructions
• Within styleguide parameters, ensuring company graphic standards are consistently applied.
2. Follow departmental practices, policies and workflow processes related to tracking project work through accurate and timely recording of all project assignments.

Key Competencies/Requirements:
1. 3-5 years professional design experience.
2. Formal education in design (BA or BFA degree)
3. Strong conceptual and visual design competencies as well as interpersonal and communication skills.
4. Ability to analyze, problem-solve and make recommendations.
5. Proficiency in Adobe LiveCycle (dynamic functionality based on javascripting), Adobe InDesign (particularly tables), Adobe Acrobat (particularly fillable fields and PDF comments) a must.
6. Strong Macintosh skills with proficiency in Quark, Photoshop and Illustrator.
7. Strong knowledge of typography, print production, multi-media and web-based technologies required; PC skills a must. Knowledge of javascript, HTML and XML a major plus.
8. Solid, well-rounded design/production portfolio, with history of adapting and succeeding in a fast-paced corporate environment in a heavily regulated industry.
9. General knowledge of the insurance industry a plus.
