Are you a creative + professional graphic designer with strong ILLUSTRATION SKILLS?
If so, read on...
Aquent's retail client has an amazing opportunity for a GRAPHIC DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR. This is a maternity leave fill position starting from early June going through October. It will be full-time, onsite @ office in Hoffman Estates., IL. (Approx 40 minutes from Chicago) This could be a great portfolio builder!

Here are some details:
This position will work on holiday decor items that will appear in large retail stores nationwide. This entails taking holiday product ideas and sketching them in detail, (translating them into Adobe Illustrator) and then laying them out to appear in style guides and design cards. This position will also coordinate with overseas vendors to work out material usage (will that Santa ornament be made out of resin with feathers or glitter?) You will also use excel to coordinate item shipping.

This is your chance to DRAW, DESIGN, and ORGANIZE. If you have experience in product or retail design, that’s great too. But your illustration skills must be apparent. You will also know what PMS colors are and how to apply them to design.
This position means tackling a big creative project down to working out the nitty gritty details and accurately tracking it all. We need self starters who can hussle while letting their creativity shine.

In other words, this position will entail:
• Specking the sketches and preparing vendor ready artwork
• Working with overseas sourcing
• Tracking and evaluating product samples
• Working with the merchant team to ensure all product needs are met
• Working with vendors to develop appropriate product
• Ability to effectively take design direction
• Follow and advocate for a preset style guide
• Ability to work quickly
